Game night preview

ORLANDO MAGIC at L.A. CLIPPERS
Tuesday, Dec. 8. 10:30 p.m
STAPLES Center

Los Angeles, CA


The Orlando Magic continue their four-game West Coast trip on Tuesday when they visit the Los Angeles Clippers at 10:30 p.m. ET. The Magic will attempt to notch their eighth straight road win, which will set a franchise record for most consecutive victories away from home in one season. Owners of the second-best road record in the NBA, the Magic are 9-2 this season away from Amway Arena, demonstrating that they’re equally as effective on the road as they are in the comforts of home. “We like playing on the road and like the atmosphere that the road brings us,” Magic All-Star center Dwight Howard explained. “We feed off the energy of knowing that we have to go into somebody else’s building and quiet that crowd and get the win.” In addition to setting a franchise mark as a result of their road success, the Magic will also have the opportunity to jump out to their best start in franchise history. Currently 16-4, the Magic can match the best start in team history after 21 games with a victory over the Clippers. Only twice before (1994-95 and 1995-96) has the team opened up 17-4 and never in its 21-year history has Orlando started off the season 18-4.


Here is the complete preview from Yahoo! Sports.


The Magic are 7 point favorites.

    Happy Birthday to Dwight Howard today!

    There's no way the Magic can lose on Dwight's birthday, is there?
