Sunday, November 18 finds an Eastern Conference clash as the New York Knicks head down south to sunny Florida as they take on the Orlando Magic at the Amway Center.
The Knicks are coming off a close loss to New Orleans on Saturday night, while Orlando beat Philadelphia back on Wednesday by 5. The Magic were in action on Saturday, but those results were not available yet.
These teams have split their last 10 meetings with five wins apiece, though I think Orlando might hold the slight edge for this game on Sunday.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are in the middle of a four game losing streak at the moment, and one of those losses was to this Orlando Magic team one week ago by a score of 115-89. If the Magic can do that on the road to these Knicks, watch out for what they can do to them at home.
Tim Hardaway Jr. led all Knicks scorers Friday night against the Pelicans with 30 points in 38 minutes, he also led the team with eight rebounds. Trey Burke added 24 points in 26 minutes off the bench.
New York shot 49% from the field Friday night, which is a pretty good number, but they will have to get their free throw (70.8%), and three point (32.4%) up if they want to win this game on Sunday. They out shot the Pelicans in all three shooting categories, but they allowed New Orleans to take in 19 more rebounds, which can just kill a team.
PF Kristaps Porzingis and SF Lance Thomas are out indefinitely for the Knicks, and SG Courtney Lee looks to be listed as questionable for this macthup.
The Magic have now won two out of their last three games as they try to stick around the .500 level heading into the middle parts of the season. As it stands right now, the Magic are clinging onto that 8th and final playoff spot in the East.
Nikola Vucevic led the Magic in points and rebounds Wednesday night against the 76ers with 30 and 8 in 39 minutes of game time. Terrence Ross added 15 points and 6 boards off the bench in 31 minutes, and DJ Augustin led the team with 9 assists in 31 minutes.
Orlando shot a pretty good 47.7% from the field against Philadelpia, and did even better from beyond the arc at 48.3% clip. They only got to the line 15 times, where they hit 10 for a 66.7%. As a team they out-rebounded the 76ers 50-33, something they will have to do against New York to stop any second chance scoring chances.
Right now the only person on the Magic injury report is PF Jonathan Isaac, who is listed as out indefinitely.

Free New York Knicks vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
Look for the Magic to lay another beat down on the Knicks on Sunday night, not that they are that much better of a team, but New York has really been having a hard time finishing off their opponents.
If Orlando can shoot at an extremely high three point percentage again on Sunday, this game will be a blow out.
