Magic at Bucks GameThread

New, comments

Losers of 14 of their last 15 games, the Magic take on the Bucks on the second night of a back-to-back.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

After starting the season 8-4, the Orlando Magic will look to avoid losing their 26th game in their last 30 contests Wednesday night in Milwaukee against the Bucks.

Orlando dropped a game last night to the Dallas Mavericks (114-99) that they lead at the half, but the Magic were outscored 71-51 in the second half. Aaron Gordon, who was late for the team's flight prior to departing Orlando, was removed from the starting lineup against the Mavericks. He finished the game with 19 points, and is expected to start tonight in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee will be eager to get back on the court after they were defeated Monday night by the Pacers 109-96 in Indianapolis. The Bucks are a little off right now, losers of three of their last five, but are still in sixth place in the Eastern Conference.

The Bucks have won four of their last six against the Magic. Orlando has lost three games in a row in Milwaukee at the Bradley Center, and enter tonight's game as 10.5 point underdogs.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee's phenomenal All-Star forward, has averaged 14 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.9 assists against the Magic in his career.
