Game night preview
ORLANDO MAGIC vs. GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
Wednesday, March 3. 7:00 p.m.
The Magic will attempt to complete a season sweep of the Warriors when they host Golden State at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Orlando earned a victory in Golden State earlier this season when it notched a 126-118 shootout victory on Dec. 5. Eight-time All-Star Vince Carter was a key factor in that triumph, posting a team-high 27 points, while Mickael Pietrus scored a then season-high 22. Notching a win at Amway Arena will be a difficult challenge for Golden State. Not only is Orlando one of the toughest home teams in the NBA with a 23-6 record, but the Warriors have been atrocious on the road, going 4-24 away from the friendly confines of ORACLE Arena. The Warriors, on the first game of a five game road trip, lost 110-106 loss at Miami Tuesday night, as three of their top players (Monta Ellis, Corey Maggette, and Andris Biedrins) did not play due to injury and are not expected to play on the road trip.
|Golden State||17-42||5th Pacific / 14th West||107.1||110.6||Road 4-24||Lost 1||4-6|
|Orlando||41-20||1st Southeast / 2nd East||101.5||95.7||Home 23-6||Won 2||7-3|
