A look ahead to the month of February for the Magic
The Magic have 13 games in FEB, 7 home and 6 away. At home, they play 4 teams that are currently over .500 (DAL, LAL, CLE, DEN), and 3 teams currently under .500 (NJ, PHI, SAC). On the road, the Magic play 2 teams currently over .500 (DET, TOR), and 4 teams currently under .500 (PHI twice, IND, NJ).
The month features a season-high 5 game homestand from FEB 4-13. Also, the Magic play 5 games in the month's first 8 days, and 6 games the last 9 days of the month. The Magic also play three sets of back-to-back road games. Thanks to the All-Star break, the Magic play only 2 games in the 10 day span from the 9th through the 18th.
Optimistic view of how the Magic will fare this month: 10-3
Pessimistic view: 5-8
