Trail Blazers Analysis: They currently have 9 games without a win

Portland’s losing run now stands at 9 games following their rout of the Heat on Friday, 142-82. Being the tenth game ever decided by at least sixty points, it was one of the most lopsided contests in NBA history. It was the 2nd 60-point outcome of the season, and the Trail Blazers had lost both of those games to the Thunder, 139-77, on January 11. Against Miami, Portland shot 40.2% overall, with 16.7% (5 of 30) coming from 3-point range. If Portland wants to win its first game since March 13, it will need to bounce back from that performance versus Orlando. Anfernee Simons (knee), Malcolm Brogdon (elbow), and Shaedon Sharpe (abdominal) are out, and Jerami Grant (hamstring) is questionable.

 

Magic Analysis: Coming off a huge 30-point win

Orlando defeated Memphis at home in the 2nd game of a back-to-back series on Saturday night, ending a 3-game losing streak. As of Sunday, the Magic were 43-31 on the year and had a 2.5-game advantage over the Heat for the top slot in the Southeast Division. They ranked 5th in the Eastern Conference, 1.5 games ahead of the Heat for the final guaranteed position and 15 games behind the Celtics for the top slot. Orlando had a 20-point advantage in the 1st quarter and never looked back against Memphis, closing the 1st quarter on a 24-4 run. En route to the win, the Magic led by 24 at the break and by 35 after three quarters. Throughout the game, Orlando forced 19 turnovers while shooting 48.7% from the field, including 22 of 44 from 3-point range.
