Orlando Magic's Latest Performance :
The Magic will look to bounce back after being blown out by the Nuggets in their first game of the six-game road trip. The Magic had no answer for the Nuggets size in this game as they allowed them to score 64 points in the paint. They routinely got high percentage shots close to the rim, often in one-on-one matchups that neutered any chance of help defense. Millsap finished with 14, Trey Lyles torched the Magic for 22. The Magic will have to do a better job against the Lakers. Vucevic finished the game with 16 points he will be looking forward to facing the Lakers again after scoring a season-high 36 points in his last game against them. Terrence Ross was the only bright spot on the team scoring 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting with four 3-pointers. Gordon chipped in with 14 as he will look to have a bounce-back game against the Lakers.
Los Angeles Lakers's Latest Performance :
The Lakers are coming off a win against the Jazz as they will be facing the Magic once again after losing to them last Saturday. The Lakers turned up their defense against the Jazz, holding them to 38.8 percent shooting from the field, including 4-of-23 on 3-pointers, while forcing 19 turnovers. Leading the way for the Lakers was Ingram as he went off for a season-high 24 points this tells us that Ingram is able to carry the team in scoring when LeBron is having an off night. Lonzo Ball grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds to go with nine points, two assists, one block, and one triple. He is starting to become aggressive after his season-high 15 points in the last game. James and Ball combined for a couple of clutch buckets in the final four minutes, working the two-man game that has been a rousing success for the Lakers this season. Playing against the Magic the Lakers big man must do a better job covering up Vucevic as he scored 36 points the last time out.

The Lakers big Chandler and McGee will do a much better job containing Vucevic if he doesn’t get it going offensively it will make it tough for the Magic to win. Lonzo will have his way in this game as he will use his size to exploit the smaller guards. Go with the Lakers winning at home in this game.
