The San Antonio Spurs will host the struggling Orlando Magic in an inter-conference battle Tuesday night from the AT&T Center. The Magic are coming off a 113-105 road loss to the Clippers, while the Spurs fell 104-94 to Oklahoma City on Saturday and take on Houston on Monday night. Orlando recorded a 114-87 home win in the lone meeting this season.

Magic Fall to Clippers in Fourth Straight Defeat

The Orlando Magic were very competitive in their 113-108 road loss to the Clippers on Saturday night. The Magic shot 45% from the field, however, the Clippers were able to sink 52% of their shots. Jonathon Simmons played well in the defeat, netting 24 points on 7 for 13 shooting to go with seven rebounds. The 28-year old small forward has scored a combined 49 points in his two games, and he stands third in team scoring with 13.7 points per game. Nikola Vucevic recorded a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds in Saturday’s defeat. The seven-foot center is playing well, notching four double-doubles in his last six games, and he is now averaging 17.3 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.

The Magic will be without Evan Fournier for this one and their leading scorer Aaron Gordon is questionable with a concussion. Orlando has lost four straight and 11 out of their last 13 games to fall into second last place in the Eastern Conference, and they own an abysmal 7-29 road record. They are averaging 105.1 points, ranking them 17th in the NBA. The Magic are not playing well defensively and are allowing an average of 109.5 points, placing them 25th overall.

Spurs Look to Avenge Earlier Loss to Magic

The San Antonio Spurs will be looking to avenge their rough 114-87 loss to Orlando from the first meeting this season back in late October. The Spurs were cold in that one, shooting 33%, while the Magic were able to post a 57% clip. LaMarcus Aldridge led the way offensively in the loss to the Magic, sinking 24 points along with 11 rebounds. The 32-year old power forward has been inconsistent as of late, scoring 11 or fewer points in three out of his last four games, bringing his season average to 22.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. Rudy Gay has been productive, averaging a solid 13 points in his last five games which included a 15 point night in the Spurs’ loss to the Thunder last weekend. The 11-year veteran small forward stands third in team scoring with 11.3 points on a 47% efficiency from the field.

The Spurs continue to play without Kawhi Leonard, however, he could be back as early as this Thursday. LaMarcus Aldridge is questionable for this one with a sore knee. San Antonio is struggling right now, posting a 2-8 record in their last 10 games to fall down to seventh place in the Western Conference, and they now feature a 23-8 home record. They are averaging 102.3 points per game, ranking them 28th overall. The Spurs feature the number one ranked defense, holding opponents to an average of 99.6 points.

Trends:

The Orlando Magic are:

  • 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games playing on two days of rest.
  • 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games.

The San Antonio Spurs are:

  • 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against the NBA Southeast.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.

I am taking the Spurs in this contest. The Magic are playing without Evan Fournier (17.8 PPG) and Aaron Gordon (18.3 PPG) is questionable for this one. Orlando has lost 11 out of their last 13 games and they are only averaging 97.4 points in their last five games, and they will have a tough time against the Spurs’ stifling defense. Furthermore, the Spurs have been fairly productive, averaging a solid 107.1 points in their last ten games, and they should be able to record a decisive win on their home court.
