On Friday, February 12th, an Inter-Conference matchup will take place between the Orlando Magic and the Phoenix Suns. The Orlando Magic will try to build on their win Friday at Sacramento as they travel down south to PHX Arena on Sunday afternoon for an uphill battle versus the scorching hot Phoenix Suns. Orlando has been in a serious slump dropping 15 of their past 19 games to come in with a 10-17 overall record, which is good for 12th place in the East. Meanwhile, the Suns have won 5 straight games and 16 of their first 25 which is good for fourth place in the West.
Orlando continues their Western Conference road trip as they enter Sunday’s game looking to wrap up their fourth and final game out West. Orlando snapped a three-game slide with a 123-112 victory on the road against the Sacramento Kings behind 42 points from center Nikola Vucevic on Friday night. Michael Carter-Williams finished with 21 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists for the Magic, who shot 15-for-34 from 3-point range in the win.
This a bleak moment for the franchise, which has watched a potential playoff team become decimated by injuries en route to a free fall down the NBA standings. The Magic are currently dealing with with an injury report that is as follows, Aaron Gordon is out (ankle), Evan Fournier is questionable (back), Cole Anthony is questionable (shoulder), Al-Farouq Aminu is questionable (knee), Jeff Ennis is questionable (groin). Markelle Fultz is out for the season.
Phoenix extended its winning streak to five games on Saturday with a 120-11 victory at home versus the Philadelphia 76ers. Devin Booker finished with a game-high 36 points while Chris Paul added 18 points and handed out 10 assists in the win.
The Paul-Booker tandem has paid major dividends for the Suns, who are off to a strong 16-9 start to the 2020-21 season. Despite the fact that Booker has regressed from 3-point range, he’s nearing his career-high in effective field goal percentage which is a sign that his shot selection is improving. This trend can be accounted for thanks to Chris Paul and his presence facilitating the ball and taking the pressure off of Booker.

Free Orlando Magic vs Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction
These two teams have been trending in opposite directions for the past few weeks. Orlando has just four wins in its last 19 games and the Magic have really struggled on offense with their injury-hampered lineup. Meanwhile, Phoenix has morphed into one of the best defensive teams in the NBA while climbing into fourth in the West standings with eight wins in its past nine games. Paul and Booker have been working well together in the Suns’ backcourt, while Ayton and Bridges have anchored the Suns on the defensive end of the floor. Take Phoenix to cover the spread at home in this matchup versus the Magic on Sunday.
