Current Records: Orlando 12-43; Portland 21-33

What to Know

The Orlando Magic are 2-11 against the Portland Trail Blazers since December of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Tuesday. The Magic will challenge Portland on the road at 10 p.m. ET at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter. Both teams were wiped off the court in their previous games and will be looking to bounce back in a big way.

Orlando took a serious blow against the Boston Celtics on Sunday, falling 116-83. One thing holding Orlando back was the mediocre play of small forward Franz Wagner, who did not have his best game: he played for 26 minutes but put up just eight points on 4-for-13 shooting.

Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough matchup for Portland this past Saturday, and boy were they were right. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 137-108 walloping at the Milwaukee Bucks’ hands. Portland was down 107-75 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. The top scorers for the Trail Blazers were shooting guard Anfernee Simons (19 points), shooting guard Ben McLemore (19 points), and shooting guard CJ McCollum (17 points).

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Magic are expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

Orlando is now 12-43 while Portland sits at 21-33. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Orlando has only been able to knock down 43.20% percent of their shots, which is the third lowest field goal percentage in the league. The Trail Blazers have experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 47.40% from the floor on average, which is the third highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
