Magic at Suns GameThread

The Magic will be looking for more peaks (and less valleys) tonight against the Suns

NBA: Orlando Magic at Phoenix Suns Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports

The fifth game of Orlando’s six game west coast road-trip will commence tonight in Arizona against the hapless Phoenix Suns, losers of 17 of their first 21 games this season.

The Magic, who have now dropped four of their last five games dating back to their loss on November 20th against the Raptors, will be looking to get back on track tonight before returning to the Sunshine State.

Aaron Gordon, who left the Golden State game early and missed the Portland contest entirely, is listed as a game-time decision (back stiffness).
