The Orlando Magic pay a visit to the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Magic were able to snap an eight-game losing streak with an upset win over the Celtics on Sunday, but they had no time to celebrate as they visited the Spurs on Monday and were blown away by 107-92. Nikola Vucevic led the scoring with 20 points, Victory Oladipo had 19 points Aaron Gordon chipped in with 12 points as the Magic battled hard to come back from an early 16-point deficit, only to be run off the court in a 32-22 fourth quarter dominated by the Spurs. With the loss, Orlando fell to 21-26 on the season and 8-15 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Thunder have won 11 of their last 12 games and will be gunning for a fifth straight win after making light work of the Wizards in a 114-98 win on Monday. Kevin Durant led the team in scoring with 28 points while Serge Ibaka added 19 points and 10 rebounds, but it was once again Russell Westbrook who drove the Thunder with a triple-double of 17 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. With the easy win, Oklahoma City improve to 37-13 on the season and 23-5 at home.
In ATS trends, the Magic are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games against a team above .600 and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games, while the Thunder are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games but just 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall.
Head to head, the Magic are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings and the under is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Oklahoma City.
The Magic battled hard in their last outing against the Spurs but still managed to get blown out by double digits and I'm expecting more of the same against a Thunder team simply rolling through opponents lately.
