After dropping nine in a row, the Magic put it all together at home on Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Aaron Gordon's big night helped push them, but their strong play on the defensive end, and stifling the likes of Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George.
Friday night brings a whole other test in and of itself. Golden State possess one of the best offenses in the game, and has the length and switching ability to dominate a team on the defensive end. Golden State also makes teams pay for missing shots, with the team finishing with a fast break opportunity on nearly 50 percent of opponent misses.
Golden State does come in banged up, with Andre Iguodala out, and Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant all nursing injuries of their own.
Game time is set for 7:00 PM. The game can be seen on FoxSports Florida and heard on ESPN580 Orlando.
