Sunday, December 1st finds the Golden State Warriors traveling to play the Orlando Magic for the first time this season.
Last season, the squads played twice splitting their two meetings TThe Magic hold the all-time record having bested the Warriors in 31 of their 60 matches.
Golden State Warriors
The team who won three championships in five seasons resides at the bottom of the ladder with four wins in 20 games and have yet to put together back-to-back wins.
Getting out on the road to play some of the East’s lower tier squads may be precisely what the doctor ordered. Golden State lost badly (122-105) in Miami but their next four games feature the Magic, Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Hornets and Chicago Bulls who boast a cumulative record of 25-54.
In the loss to the Heat rookie Jordan Poole led the way with 20 points and was joined by five teammates who scored in double figures. Those players were Eric Paschall (17), Alec Burks (16), Willie Cauley-Stein (14), Omari Spellman (12) and Marquese Chriss (10).
While D’Angelo Russell (thumb) Damion Lee (hand), Jacob Evans (groin) are all expected early this month only Kevon Looney (neuropathy) might be available for this match.
Stephen Curry (hand) won’t return until February and Klay Thompson (knee) is out for the season.
The Orlando Magic are happy to be back home although they did manage to collect a road win versus the Cavaliers and were the last team in the Association to win on the road.
Orlando is struggling badly on offense which is likely due to the absence of their leading scorer Nikola Vucevic. They also were without Aaron Gordon who suffered his own ankle injury but made his return in the Friday match versus Toronto after missing the last three.
It was an ugly game Friday with the Magic taking control early and collecting nine blocks in the first half as well as a seven point half time lead.
Unfortunately, the Raptors brought their second-ranked defense and best opponent field goal percentage to the court in the second half holding the Magic to 12 third quarter points and had a period of six minutes where they held Orlando scoreless via 12 consecutive defensive stops.
Evan Fournier led the team in scoring with 19 points while Markelle Fultz (15) and Mo Bamba (11) were the only other Magic double-digit scorers .
Vucevic will be out until the end of December and Michael Carter-Williams is out indefinitely with a hip strain.
NBA Betting Trends:

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
It’s a match with a very good defensive team (Magic) and a club that occasionally get hot offensively (Warriors). Both clubs can suffer from bouts where their major weakness gets exposed which will afford the other team the advantage if they played consistently and focused for the full 48 minutes.
Despite the anemic offense the Magic can lock down any team and that factor especially after the loss Friday should rue the day.
