The Lakers look for rare back to back wins when they welcome in the Orlando Magic Sunday night,
The Magic continue to trend in the wrong way, as they’ve fallen 6 games under the .500 mark after dropping 2 straight.
The Magic had their chances last time out as they led the Rockets throughout the game, but failed to get anything going in the 4th quarter in what was eventually a 7 point loss.
The loss sent Orlando their 4th defeat out of their last 5 games.
Defense has been the biggest issue for the Magic.
Orlando has given up 103.5 points per game this season, but things have been extremely shaky as of late.
They’ll also need to get leading scorer Evan Fournier going. Averaging 17.5 points per game, Fournier has struggled recently, going just 10 for his last 27 from the field.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers have wins in 2 of their last 3 games, as they come in off a dominating performance against the Heat.
Los Angeles racked up 127 points in the process, which is extremely impressive given how good Miami is on the defensive side of the ball.
The Lakers saw veteran Luol Deng really step up, which is something they’d like to see more often.
Deng finished with 19 points and 14 rebounds as he was one of the spark plugs to the Lakers offensive outburst.
G Nick Young has struggled, going just 6 for 24 over the past 2 contests.
Los Angeles enters play 9-10 inside the Staples Center this season.
