Losers of nine straight, the Orlando Magic return home for yet another tough test against the new look Oklahoma City Thunder.
After a hot start to the season, the Magic have fallen off a cliff. Shots that were falling no longer are, and the defense that stifled teams is nowhere to be found.
Oklahoma City poses yet another incredibly tough test for the Magic, especially on the defense end of the court. With Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George, the Magic will be tested on the wing with some of the biggest offensive threats in the league.
One area the Magic need to address is rebounding, most notably boxing out. The team has struggled putting a body on anyone, and it's cost them. With Steven Adams, who's always working the boards, along with Andre Roberson, the Thunder will be a big threat on the offense glass tonight.
Game time is set for 7:00 Pm Eastern at the Amway Center. The game can be seen on FoxSports Florida, and heard on ESPN580 Orlando.
