A cross conference showdown takes place on Tuesday when the Orlando Magic travel to Houston to take on the Rockets.
Both teams come into this game struggling as of late.
This is the second meeting between the two teams. Houston won the first match up 100-93.
It’s over halfway through the season and the Magic still haven’t seemed to find their identity. They haven’t found a guy who they can trust to get a basket when they need one.
On the defensive side of the ball they don’t play great team defense giving up over 105 points per game.
They come into ths game having gone 3-7 in their last ten games. The story of their season and their inconsistencies are shown in the last two games. Two games ago they beat Toronto 102-94. The next day they played Atlanta and lost 113-86.
The Magic are led by Evan Fournier. He averages 16.6 points, 3.3 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game.
For the Magic to win they just need to be consistent. They need to play consistent on both ends of the floor and they have a chance to pull the big upset.
The Magic have struggled on the road this season, registering a record of 11-17.
After starting off the season so hot and looking like a team that could beat the Warriors in the playoffs, they have really come down to earth lately.
A lot of times they look like a team that has had their high paced offense catch up to them and look almost lethargic at times.
They come into this game having won five of their last ten games. In their last game they beat the Bulls in a tough battle 121-117 in overtime.
For the Rockets to win they need to focus on the defensive end. The Rockets always get their points, that’s never a problem but they need to lock down on the other end of the court.
The Rockets come into this game with a 19-6 record at home.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
I expect this game to play out a lot like the first time the two teams met. The Magic really tried and slow down the pace and I expect that this game too.
