Matchup to Watch
• The Magic’s long-term agenda is Oladipo might be most useful as a point guard. But that’s complex to manage when
, a valuable contributor who can still play, is one of the few remaining pieces from when the Magic was good.
• The Bobcats broke a 13-game streak of holding opponents under 100 points in the victory over the Golden State Warriors.
• Taylor (inflamed heel) and centerBismack Biyombo
(sprained ankle) both practiced Tuesday. Their status for the Magic game will be decided after morning shootaround. Taylor appeared a lot closer to being well enough to play than Biyombo.
• The Magic is on a six-game losing streak following Monday’s loss in Memphis. CenterNik Vucevic
has missed four of those games with a sprained ankle.
• Bobcats average the fewest points in the NBA. The Magic allows the second-most. Something’s got to give.
Did you know?
• The Bobcats have a 7-2 record this season in games decided by six points or less.
