Following a big win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday, the Orlando Magic will get to face a struggling Charlotte Bobcats team in Orlando's third game in four nights on the road Saturday.

The Magic (9-13) halted the Warriors five-game winning streak with an impressive 99-85 win, as six players in total and three off the bench scored in double figures. Now, Orlando gets Charlotte at an opportune time in the first of four meetings between the two teams this season.

After starting the year at a surprising 7-5, the Bobcats (7-15) have returned to their losing ways and dropped the last 10 contests. In nine of its loses, Charlotte has allowed at least 100 points to the opposition, including a whopping 132 points to the San Antonio Spurs in regulation on Dec. 8. The schedule doesn't get much easier either with the Bobcats heading out West for a four-game road trip after playing the Magic.

The game tips off at 7:30 p.m. at Time Warner Cable Arena.
