The Orlando Magic simply aren't a good basketball team, especially on the road. The Magic also aren't even covering games as the losses continue to pile up. The Magic will play hard for Ibaka in his first game back to OKC, but i don't see the Magic having enough firepower to keep this one close in the end. The Thunder should win this by double digits at home.
