Los Angeles Lakers 's Latest Performance :
The Lakers are starting to get everyone on the same page as they have now won four games in a row heading into Orlando. LeBron is coming off a monster night as he passed Wilt Chamberlain to become the No. 5 all-time NBA scorer on Wednesday, finishing with 44 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, five 3-pointers and three blocks. He made 13-of-19 field goals and 13-of-15 free throws, en route to the season-high in scoring. Rajon Rondo is expected to be out for 4-to-5 weeks that means we could be seeing a string of guys playing point guard position and that includes Brandon Ingram. The Lakers will look for their 5th win in a row against the Magic in this one as they are starting to be the favorites to win every game with the way they are currently playing.
Orlando Magic 's Latest Performance :
The Magic will keep the ball rolling as they were able to take down the Sixers in their last game. The Magic ruined the party because everyone thought the Sixers were going to come up on top because of Butler. Instead the Magic went on a 21-0 run and Ross nailed the three pointer to secure the win. Vucevic had a big night as he scored 30 points. The Magic did a great job of limiting their fouls something that cost them against the Wizards. D.J. Augustin handed out nine assists on Wednesday, but shot just 1-of-6 from the field for four points. The Magic have a collective group that can work together and pull out some wins this season. Aaron Gordon is the team go to player as he scored 17 points in his last timeout and will face a tough matchup against LeBron who is coming off a 44 point effort.
