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.
Things to watch— Orlando Pinstriped Post (@OPPMagicBlog) January 20, 2020
1) The Hornets play a two point-guard lineup with Graham/Rozier starting. It will be interesting to see how the Magic matchup.
2) I think this is a game where an Iwundu/Gordon forward pairing will work better than Gordon/Birch
