The Orlando Magic are one of the five worst teams in the NBA this year. Sitting at 20-45, the Magic are clearly tanking, in hopes of getting a first round lottery pick. The Sacramento Kings have the same record as Orlando, and are also in tank mode. The Kings are 2-7 over their last nine games.
The last time the Magic and Kings took the court against each other, was January 23rd. The Kings got the win, 105-99. Look for this matchup to be close like the first.
The Orlando Magic are one a terrible team in a soft Eastern Conference this year. The Magic were recently beaten by the Lakers, 108-107. The Magic shot 50.6 percent from the floor, and 42.9 percent from three, and still managed to lose by a point to the Lakers.
Aaron Gordon led the team with 28 points on 11 of 21 shooting from the field. Look for Gordon to play well against the Kings. Gordon is averaging 18.3 points per game this season, and seems to developing into one of the best young players in the NBA this year.
While Gordon leads the team in scoring, the Magic have three other players scoring double figures. Evan Fourner is second on the team in scoring averaging 17.8 points per game this year. Look for the combination of Fourner and Gordon to be a factor if they decide to show up in this on.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Magic are allowing 109.5 points per game this season. Ranking the Magic 25th in points allowed this season. Look for Orlando to play sloppy defense in this matchup. The Magic are what they are this year, and could get worse defensively as the season goes on.
Look for the Magic to struggle in Sacramento. The Magic are 7-27 on the road this year, and have lost two in a row. Don’t expect the tanking Magic to play well in this one.
The Sacramento Kings are a bad team again this year. I have to questions who is to blame for how bad the Kings have been, for this long.
Sacramento has not played like a good NBA team since the early 2000’s. Chris Webber, Mike Bibby and Jason Williams are suiting up anytime soon.
I have to say upper management has to be a lot of the blame for why they are so bad. Vlade Divac has done a terrible job as GM, and should have been fired a few years ago. I can’t remember the last time someone actually acknowledged the Kings as a good team.
The Kings are 2-3 over their last five games, with their most recent loss coming against the New Orleans Pelicans, 114-101. The Kings are too good on the defensive side of the court. The team is allowing 107.1 points per game this year. That ranks Sacramento 19th in points allowed this year.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Orlando Magic are going to have to lean heavily on Aaron Gordon. Gordon should want the ball in his hands every possession and be ready to score.
The Kings are 10-22 at home this season. If Sacramento can keep a steady flow of buckets, look for a big game from veteran Zach Randolph.
