Monday night's loss to the Sacramento Kings, considering the state of the Kings following the DeMarcus Cousins trade, considering their 8-game losing streak going into the game, and considering that they rested 4 of their better players, should be considered one of the worst losses the Magic have had all season. If they want a win tonight, they're gonna have to play at their very best.
If there's one bright spot from the loss, it was that Payton tallied his third triple-double in March. His resurgence as an all-around contributor is perhaps the most interesting subplot of the Magic as another disappointing season enters its final stretch, so it will be interesting to see if he can keep it up against a challenging opponent.
Game time is set for 10:30PM Eastern at Oracle Arena. You can catch the game on Fox Sports Florida, or on the radio at ESPN 580 Orlando.
