The Magic are back in action Sunday night as they welcome the New York Knicks to town. Orlando has won six of eight and will be looking to pick up their third victory in a row.

Last night, the Magic defeated LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers 130-117. Nikola Vucevic led Orlando with 36 points and 13 rebounds.

The Knicks have dropped six of their last seven games, including a 115-89 drubbing courtesy of the Magic exactly a week ago.

Incredibly, the Magic currently find themselves sitting atop the Southeast division standings as the only team at .500 or better through 15 games.
