Two teams in different races face off on Tuesday night as the Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76ers battle it out.
Orlando made the moves at the deadline as they try to make a push at the Eastern Conference playoffs.
The Philadelphia 76ers look to hold off the Lakers…..for the worst record in the NBA. They’re just 3 wins behind the Lakers, as this race will be for who has the best shot at winning the lottery.
The Magic have gone 1-1 since the All Star break and have to be kicking themselves following their 105-102 loss to Indiana at home.
Orlando has a very good chance at making a push toward a bottom seed in the East, but winning home games is a certain must if they hope to do that. The front office made the moves at the deadline that added depth, something Orlando seriously lacked, but now it’s time for the players to step up.
The Magic forced 21 turnovers and held the Pacers to just 9 of 25 shooting in the 4th quarter, but they shot themselves in the foot with their own compliment of turnovers and missed shots. They had plenty of chances down the stretch, but failed to convert and eventually failed.
Losing close games has become a norm for Orlando. They’ve played in 14 games decided by 3 points or less and have gone 5-9 in that span. The 14 games decided by 3 or less is a league high.
Wins haven’t come around often for the 76ers. However, Philadelphia did encounter a win last time they took the floor against the Magic.
Back on 1/20, the 76ers went into Orlando and handled the Magic 96-87. Philadelphia shot 49% and held the Magic to just 39% shooting from the floor.
Currently, the 76ers have find themselves in the middle of another losing streak, as they’ve dropped 4 in a row. The defense has let them down game after game, especially as of late. This 76ers team concedes 106.1 points per game and has allowed 110,121, and 129 points in their past 3 games.
The 76ers have gone just 5-21 SU at home and 12-13-1 ATS in that span. Because of their 106.1 points per game against, the over has hit 16 out of 26 times this season in Phili.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
The Magic have looked much more competitive since making the deadline move for Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova. They needed depth and addressed it, which now means it’s on the players going forward.
Winning games against the lower tier teams is an absolute must. With teams to jump and how clustered the East is, there is very little room for error.
