Magic Vs. Nuggets Preview: Orlando Looks To Rebound In Denver

The Orlando Magic finish up their brief road trip with a game against the Denver Nuggets Sunday night.

Presswire

There will not be much time for the Orlando Magic to dwell on their defeat on Saturday night to the Utah Jazz in overtime, as they will quickly be back in action on Sunday against the Denver Nuggets.

The Magic are still trying to find their footing without Dwight Howard, as they are just 3-6 since he left the lineup with a back injury. They are now most likely locked into the six seed in the Eastern Conference.

They will have their hands full with Nuggets guard Ty Lawson who is on fire. He has averaged 24.5 points on 58.3 percent shooting over the last four games.

The two teams met in Orlando back on April 1, with the Nuggets squeaking out a 104-101 victory, with Lawson leading the way with 29 points and 10 assists. The Magic will need to stop him if they want a chance to win.

Tip-off from the Pepsi Center is set for 8:00 p.m. EST.
