Magic Vs. Spurs: Orlando Hosts San Antonio, Concludes Back-To-Back-To-Back

Orlando hosts San Antonio looking for its sixth straight victory.

The Orlando Magic (10-3) take on the San Antonio Spurs (9-5) on Wednesday night at Amway Center, wrapping up their only back-to-back-to-back set of games in the lockout-shortened season and hoping to extend their winning streak to six games.

Orlando most recently defeated the Charlotte Bobcats, 96-89, behind a brilliant all-around performance from Dwight Howard. The superstar center scored 25 points, grabbed 17 rebounds, dished four assists, recorded one steal, and blocked four shots in a dominant outing. Von Wafer added 13 points off the bench, while Hedo Turkoglu overcame early foul trouble to finish with 15 points, five boards, and three assists. Charlotte got 22 points from Gerald Henderson and 15 from Kemba Walker in defeat.

The Spurs, meanwhile, are reeling from a tough loss against the Miami Heat on Tuesday. San Antonio's lead grew to as large as 17 points in the first half, but Miami took command after intermission: it outscored the visitors, 39-12, in the third quarter, with LeBron James contributing 17 on his own.

The Magic and Spurs have split the last eight games between the teams since Stan Van Gundy took over as Orlando's head coach prior to the 2007/08 season, with each team holding a 3-1 record on its home floor.

Tipoff between the Magic and Spurs is set for 7 Eastern. Sun Sports will televise the game in the Orlando market.
