Storyline: The second stop on the Magic’s four-game road trip brings them to Utah. Coming off a victory over the Pelicans, where Orlando scored a season-high 130 points, the Magic face a Jazz team with the league’s 10th best defensive rating at 105.5. It’s the start of a challenging back-to-back for the Magic as they face the 15-11 Jazz followed by the 17-8 Nuggets. The Magic have gone just 1-11 this season against teams who currently own a record of .500 or better. The Jazz are expected to have Mike Conley, who has missed the last five games with a hamstring injury.
