Through 2 Quarters

Although the Orlando Magic came into the game as underdogs, they’re on track to steal the victory from the Washington Wizards. The Magic have emerged as the frontrunner at halftime and are ahead of Washington 51-44.

Power forward Chuma Okeke has led the way so far for Orlando, as he has eight points and three assists in addition to five rebounds and two steals. Washington has been relying on the performance of power forward Kyle Kuzma, who has dropped a double-double on 13 boards and ten points.

This is the first time Orlando has been ahead going into the third quarter in the past nine games.

What to Know

The Orlando Magic are getting right back to it as they host the Washington Wizards at 6 p.m. ET Jan. 9 at Amway Center. The Magic are out to stop a three-game streak of losses at home.

Orlando was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 97-92 to the Detroit Pistons. Despite the defeat, Orlando got a solid performance out of shooting guard Gary Harris, who shot 6-for-12 from downtown and finished with 28 points and six boards. Harris’ performance made up for a slower contest against the Philadelphia 76ers this past Wednesday. Harris’ points were the most he has had all season.

Meanwhile, Washington came up short against the Chicago Bulls this past Friday, falling 130-122. A silver lining for Washington was the play of shooting guard Bradley Beal, who had 26 points and six assists.

Orlando is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. At 3-13 against the spread at home, they are no cash cow. That said, the Wizards aren’t so hot on the road, where they are 7-15.

These two teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses this week. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
