The Month of January for the Magic
The Magic have 14 games this month... 7 home and 7 on the road. At home, they play four games against teams that are currently under .500 (NJ, HOU, CHI, MIA). Three games are against teams over .500 (POR, DET, BOS). On the road, the Magic play four games against teams that are currently under .500 (SAC, LAC, CHA, MEM). Three road games are against teams over .500 (DEN, UT, DET).
A pessimistic view of how the Magic will fare this month: 6-8
Optimistic view: 10-4
Two games against DET and one against BOS will be good indicators of where the Magic currently stand as a team.
