Storyline: It’s a battle of the eighth seeds! The Magic, winners of two straight and owners of the league’s top offense of late, wrap up a four-game road trip. They currently sit a half-game behind the Nets for the seventh spot. Orlando will face Rookie of the Year candidate Ja Morant and a Grizzlies team that has won four of five games and is holding a four-game lead over the ninth-placed Pelicans.
