The Orlando Magic visit the AT&T Center to take on the San Antonio Spurs tonight.
The Magic were able to snap an eight-game losing streak last night with a hard-fought 119-114 win over the Celtics. Evan Fournier led the scoring with 24 points off the bench, Aaron Gordon added 19 points while Mario Hezonja had 17 as the Magic rallied from 14 points down to win their first game in over three weeks. With the win, Orlando avenges a 113-94 loss to the Celtics on Friday and improves to 21-25 on the season and 13-11 at home.

Meanwhile, the Spurs will be looking to bounce back after falling to the Cavaliers by 117-103 on Satuday for just their second loss in their last 16 games. Kawhi Leonard had a nice game of 24 poionts, LaMarcus Aldridge added 15 points while Tony Parker had 13, but the Spurs were always running uphill after a quick start from the Cavaliers' Kevin Love put them in a double-digit deficit right from the start of the game. With the rare loss, San Antonio falls to 39-8 on the season and 14-8 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Magic are 6-0 ATS in their last six games against a team above .600 and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall, while the Spurs are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a loss of more than 10 points and 14-2 ATS in their last 16 games following a loss.
Head to head, the Magic are 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings and the over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings in San Antonio.
The Spurs really shouldn't have much trouble against this struggling Magic outfit at home, so I'm banking on them to win this one easily and cover the hefty spread.
