After starting the season 8-4, and having seemed to turn a corner, the wheels have completely fallen off the bus for the Magic. Since beating the Phoenix Suns on the first game of their four-game west coast trip, the Magic have looked like a completely different team, not moving the ball with the crisp accuracy they did early, and getting beat seemingly every possession on the defensive end.
The Magic are coming off a loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday night, where they trailed by 30 heading into the fourth quarter before ultimately losing by 13.
Rookie sensation Ben Simmons will be out for the Sixers on Saturday night with an elbow injury.
Game time is set for 7:00 PM Eastern at the Wells Fargo Center. The game can be seen on Fox Sports Florida and heard on ESPN580.
