The Orlando Magic will look to extender their current winning streak to four games Monday, as they host the Los Angeles Clippers at the Amway Center (7 p.m. on Sun Sports). The Magic (15-9) are also looking for their 10th straight victory over the Clippers (14-7), who has won five of their last six games.
Orlando is coming off a 85-81 victory Saturday against the Indiana Pacers that featured center Dwight Howard netting a game-best 27 points and eight rebounds. The win over the Pacers was much needed, as the Magic host the Clippers then the Miami Heat, Wednesday, and Atlanta Hawks, Friday.
Meanwhile, the Clippers are playing the second of a six-game road trip and are awaiting to debut of newly acquired forward Kenyon Martin, who's not expected to play Monday.
The Magic will be looking slow down the duo of Clippers point guard Chris Paul and forward Blake Griffin, who has averaged18.5 points on 42.9 percent shooting and 14.0 rebounds in the two games against Orlando last season
