Orlando has covered both games since its fire sale at the trade deadline, first in a seven-point loss to Portland and then in a three-point loss at the Lakers.
Dwayne Bacon scored 26 of his team’s 93 points in that narrow loss to the Lakers, who were playing without both LeBron James and Anthony Davis, of course.
Rookie Chuma Okeke, who was drafted 16th overall out of Auburn in 2019, scored 14 points after setting career-highs in his previous two games with 17 and then 22 points, respectively. He’s added seven assists to just three turnovers since the Magic’s trades.
Terrence Ross did not play against the Lakers with a knee injury. It was his seventh consecutive game missed.
Michael Carter-Williams left the game with a knee injury of his own and did not return. He started at point guard and began the game 0-for-6 before exiting.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers search for their sixth win in a row as they host Milwaukee on the West Coast Monday.
All five of LA’s wins in its current streak have come by at least nine points, including Saturday’s double-digit victory over Philadelphia.
Paul George and Kawhi Leonard combined for 52 points. Terance Mann shot 10-for-12 to set a new career-high of 23 points.
Mann has been terrific over his last five games, in which he’s averaged over 27 minutes off the bench with more than 15 points and seven rebounds.
Both Patrick Beverley (knee) and Serge Ibaka (back) will miss the Milwaukee game on Monday. For Beverley, it will be his eighth straight missed game and for Ibaka, his seventh.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction: Orlando sets no trap.
Some may pin this as a trap game for the Clippers and it very well could be.
I’m not so sure it will be. Leonard and George are healthy but at least one of them, if not both, will likely sit this game out on the second night of a back-to-back.
That will give the Clippers’ aspiring role rotation players plenty of opportunity against a gutted Orlando roster. With much more to play for, the Clippers should turn this game into a blowout.
