Following two late losses to the hands of the Washington Wizards and New York Knicks, the Orlando Magic return to action at home against the Chicago Bulls.
Monday night saw the Magic put together a, generally, strong first 36 minutes against the Knicks, and seemed poised to take home the victory after a disappointing loss at the hands of the Wizards on Sunday night. The fourth quarter was much different for the Magic, who struggled to knock down shots, and couldn't stop the suddenly red hot Knicks. The loss brought forth a big issue for the young Magic bunch that just can't close out games, something that's plagued them, no matter how well they've played, over the last few seasons.
Nikola Vucevic will once again sit out with a sore achillies.
Game time is set for 7:00 Eastern at the Amway Center. The game can be seen on FoxSports Florida, and heard on ESPN580 Orlando.
