The Orlando Magic snapped their five-game losing streak on Saturday and hope to avoid the regular season sweep against the Detroit Pistons on Monday evening.
The Orlando Magic were able to snap their five-game losing streak with a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday. While the magic are dealing with a bit of drama and turmoil with the Dwight Howard and Stan Van Gundy situation, they were still able to pick up a victory and will hope to turn that victory into a winning streak as they head towards the playoffs at the end of the month.
The Pistons on the other hand are coming off a blowout loss to the Miami Heat and are now on a two-game losing streak. Detroit is all but out of the playoff race at this point, but Detroit is still trying to pick up wins and play for some pride. The Pistons have beaten the Magic in both match ups so far this season and can go for the regular season sweep on Monday evening.
