What to Know

The Orlando Magic have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Dallas Mavericks and are hoping to record their first win since March 8 of 2019. They will face off at 9:30 p.m. ET Jan. 15 at American Airlines Center without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. If the contest is anything like Dallas’ 130-124 victory from their previous meeting in March of last year, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

The Magic beat the Charlotte Hornets 116-109 this past Friday. Center Moe Wagner and small forward Franz Wagner were among the main playmakers for Orlando as the former had 26 points and the latter had 19 points and seven assists in addition to six rebounds.

Meanwhile, everything went Dallas’ way against the Memphis Grizzlies this past Friday as they made off with a 112-85 win. Dallas relied on the efforts of point guard Luka Doncic, who posted a triple-double on 27 points, 12 boards, and ten assists, and point guard Jalen Brunson, who had 15 points and nine assists along with five steals and five boards. That makes it three consecutive games in which Doncic has had at least 11 rebounds.

Orlando have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 11.50 point spread they are up against. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

The Magic are now 8-35 while the Mavericks sit at 23-19. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Orlando is third worst in the league in points per game, with only 102.1 on average. Dallas’ defense has more to brag about, as they they rank third in the league when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 103 on average. Orlando might struggle to break 100.
