The Orlando Magic have stumbled over the past few weeks, but they'll face the Charlotte Bobcats with a good chance to build positive momentum.

The Orlando Magic have had a rough go of things this month. They've lost their franchise player and have been on a little bit of a slide as the Playoffs approach. they'll have a golden opportunity to build momentum against the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night. The game starts at 7 pm and can be seen on FS Florida.

Despite being the worst team in the NBA, the Bobcats actually have something to play for in this game. They have to win one of their final two games to avoid going down as the worst team in NBA history, in terms of overall winning percentage. The Bobcats only have seven wins this year, but one of them came against this Magic squad. Not only are the Magic playing for some momentum, I'm sure they'd also like to avoid being a historical footnote.
