When: Sunday, March 8th, 7:00 PM EST
Where: Toyota Center, Houston, TX
TV: Fox Sports Florida
Line: Orlando +8, O/U: 230.5
Injuries: Orlando - Fultz (QUESTIONABLE), Aminu (OUT), Fournier (OUT), Isaac (OUT); Houston (QUESTIONABLE)
Storylines: Houston, losers of three consecutive game, will be playing the back end of a road/home back-to-back. The Rockets dropped a game in Charlotte last night after starting the game trailing 20-0. Russell Westbrook sat out last night’s game, but he will be back in Houston’s lineup tonight. Orlando welcomes back Steve Clifford to the sideline; Clifford left the Magic bench in the second half of Friday’s game after suffering from symptoms related to dehydration and dizziness. Clifford was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation and was later discharged. The Magic will be playing their second-straight game without starting shooting guard Evan Fournier (sprained UCL, elbow).
