A look at the month of February for the Magic
Of the Magic's 7 home games this month, 4 are against teams over .500 (Dallas, Denver, Miami, Detroit), while 3 games are against sub-.500 teams (LA Clippers, New Jersey, Charlotte).
Of the Magic's 6 remaining away games this month, 2 are against .500 or better teams (New Orleans, Philadelphia), while 4 away games are against sub-.500 teams (Indiana, Charlotte, Chicago, New York).
The Magic play four sets of back-to-backs: 1st-2nd (at Toronto, Dallas) 17th-18th (Charlotte, at New Orleans), 24th-25th (at Chicago, at New York), and 27-28th (Detroit, at Philadelphia).
Their busiest stretch will be the 17th-28th, as they will play 8 games in this 12 day period. The Magic get a well-deserved five-day break (12th-16th) for All-Star Weekend.
No extended road trips for the Magic, as their longest road trip will be two games on two different occasions. Their longest homestand will be three games.
Optimistic view of how the Magic finish the month: 12-2
Pessimistic view: 7-5
