Game 44: Magic at Hornets GameThread

The conclusion of a six-game road trip..

NBA: Orlando Magic at Charlotte Hornets Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Who: Orlando Magic (20-23) at Charlotte Hornets (15-29)

When: Monday at 5 p.m.

Where: Spectrum Center - Charlotte, North Carolina

TV: Fox Sports Florida

Line: Magic -4, O/U 208

Injuries: Orlando - D.J. Augustin (out), Jonathan Isaac (out), Al-Farouq Aminu (out); Charlotte - None.

Storyline: The Magic finish up a six-game road trip with a Martin Luther King Day early tip. Coming off a disappointing loss in Golden State on Saturday, a win will make it a 3-3 trip for the Magic. The Hornets are coming off an 0-4 road trip (six-game losing streak overall), but haven’t played since Wednesday. That gives them plenty of time to rest and prepare for a Magic team finishing up a 10-day cross-country trip. “The Charlotte game is going to be difficult because of the travel, the schedule, which to me is ridiculous,” Steve Clifford said of the match-up against his former team.
