The Orlando Magic have won three straight games, including a win over the Eastern Conference’s best team record-wise in a 93-92 victory over the Indiana Pacers Monday night. The Memphis Grizzlies are coming off of a 92-89 win over the Washington Wizards Tuesday night.

These two teams met back on December 9 and a late Magic rally came up short and the Grizzlies held on for a 94-85 victory.

The Magic are now 16-37 while the Grizzlies are 28-23.

The Magic rank 25th in offensive rating (98.8), 17th in defensive rating (104.2) and play at the league’s 16th-fastest pace (96.20). The Grizzlies are 20th in offensive rating (102.1) 11th in defensive rating (102.3) and play at the league’s slowest pace (92.03).

Tip-off from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida is scheduled for 7:00 pm EST and will be shown locally on FS Florida.

As always, if you can’t watch the game, you can listen on the radio – in English on AM 580 WDBO and FM 96.5 and in Spanish on AM 1270 WRLZ.
