What you need to know about the Magic

Orlando will enter the post-All-Star break schedule on a four-game losing skid, which was capped by a 130-109 loss at home against Atlanta on Feb. 16. The Magic allowed an average of 124.3 points per game during that four-game losing streak. Franz Wagner has started all 60 games for Orlando and led NBA rookies in total points scored through Week 18. 

Wagner is averaging 15.6 points per game, which ranks second on the team behind Cole Anthony (17.7). The Magic are hoping to have reserve guard R.J. Hampton back from a knee injury on Friday night, as he has been out for the last 14 games. Orlando has struggled at home this season, going 5-21 in its 26 games. 

What you need to know about the Rockets

Houston returns from the All-Star break on a seven-game losing streak and has lost 11 of its last 12 games. The Rockets rank dead-last in the NBA in defensive rating (116.4). They will enter this game with some confidence, though, as they have won their past three meetings with Orlando. 

Eric Gordon scored 24 points, including a game-winner with 1.6 seconds remaining, in a 118-116 win over the Magic on Dec. 3. Guard Dennis Schroder has made three appearances with Houston since being acquired from Boston at the trade deadline. He scored 22 points against Orlando in a 116-83 Celtics win on Feb. 6.
