Monday, February 27th, the Orlando Magic and New Orleans Pelicans meet for the second and final time this season. Orlando won the initial January 20th meeting 123-110.

*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, on Sunday, February 26th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Monday, February 27th.
Although rookie Paolo Banchero and sophomore Franz Wagner continue to produce the Magic still need to shore up their perimeter shooting and defense.
Orlando shot 20.7% (6 of 29) from deep on Saturday while allowing the Pacers to shoot 37.5% and hit 15 long balls.
Rumor is the Magic will aggressively pursue Fred VanVleet this offseason and are ready to offer him a big bag so it’ll be interesting whether the Raptors counter or elect for a sign and trade.
Presently, the Magic average 110.8 points per game which rank 28th while they shoot 46.9% from the field and 34.8% from the perimeter with the latter two categories ranking 20th and 22nd.
Defensively, the Magic hold opponents to 113.7 points per game which ranks 16th, and limit them to 47.5% from the field and 34.9% from the perimeter which ranks 16th and seventh respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Kevon Harris (OUT — G League)
- Caleb Houstan (OUT — G League)
New Orleans Pelicans
It’s a bad time for the Pels to be struggling as they lost their third in a row and fourth of the last five. It appears as if the team is in a funk since learning Zion Williamson yet again will need extra time to heal from an injury.
Although Zion isn’t on the same parallel as Greg Oden there is a certain similarity in his inability to stay on the hardwood and how every injury he suffers ends up taking longer than the originally projected time to heal.
It could just be bad luck, but if you’re on the Pels tell me constant injury setbacks don’t take a toll on the whole locker room.
Presently, the Pelicans rank 15th for scoring averaging 114.7 points per game while shooting 47.8% from the field and 35.3% from the perimeter ranking 12th and 20th respectively.
Defensively, the Pelicans allow opponents to score 113.8 points per game, ranking 17th. New Orleans holds their opponents to 47.5% from the field ranking 17th and boasts the best perimeter opponent ranking 34.0%.
To summarize the injury report…
- Zion Williamson, PF (OUT indefinitely — hamstring)
- Larry Nance PF (probable — ankle)
- E.J. Liddell, PF (OUT indefinitely — knee)

Free Orlando Magic vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction:
New Orleans returned from the break poised to compete for a cemented playoff berth but the losing streak has witnessed them fall to 10th and in jeopardy of dropping outside the play-in seeds.
Orlando won’t just roll over but since the Pels get just this single stop at home prior to going back out on the road I’ll roll with them to take advantage of that home cooking.
