Orlando continues their west coast swing with a back to back leg in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.
The Magic were in Golden State on Monday night and all things considered, did end up putting a fight in against a very motivated Warriors team.
As for the Lakers, they come in off their best win in quite some time as they literally ran the Warriors out of the gym on Sunday afternoon.
Byron Scott looked his players in the eyes on Sunday prior to the game and asked if they wanted to win.
The team responded in a huge way as they made the Warriors look silly in a 112-95 win. The win certainly sent shocking waves around the league as the worst in the west knocked off the best in the west. The win comes from a lifeless team that has been abysmal all season long.
Los Angeles needs to find that type of performance again as they dominated Golden State in every aspect of the game. The depth of the Lakers saw 7 players score in double figures, something that certainly hasn’t been there this season.
Look for Los Angeles to try and use that same mentality in this one. Getting production from more than just 1 or 2 guys is what they need to do to be successful.
The Magic walked into a horrible situation on Monday night.
They got a the brunt end of that Lakers win as the Warriors came in frustrated and looking to take some anger out. All things considered though, they held strong.
The Magic eventually fell 119-113 when it was all said and done, but never let Golden State pull away from them as they kept it close throughout.
Even with the loss, the Magic aren’t quite done yet. They sit in the 11th seed in the East, 4.5 games back of the 8th spot.
Orlando has faced LA just once this season, back on 11/11. Orlando used a buzzer beating shot to secure a 101-99 win. Games like this down the stretch are needed by the Magic as they offer them a chance to grab a win against a lower tier team and jump up in the standings.

Free Orlando Magic vs. L.A. Lakers NBA Prediction:
This is quite the let down spot for LA. With them winning a game like they did against the Warriors and then coming into a game like this will be tough mentally.
Look for Orlando to really use that mental edge and attack the paint all night long.
