The fans at Smoothie King Center will be treated to a game between the Orlando Magic and the New Orleans Pelicans when they take their seats on Wednesday.

ABOUT THE MAGIC (17-26): Orlando is playing the finale of a six-game road trip in New Orleans and dropped four of the first five, capped by a 125-112 setback at Denver on Monday in which they allowed the Nuggets to shoot 58.4 percent from the floor. The Magic are allowing an average of 111.5 points over the last 10 contests and surrendered at least 100 in 11 consecutive contests. “We’ve got to get a win,” Orlando coach Frank Vogel told reporters. “We’re behind the eight ball with where we are in the standings. It doesn’t matter – home, road or whoever we’re playing, we’ve got to get a win.”

ABOUT THE PELICANS (16-26): New Orleans is enduring the opposite problem while turning in strong defensive performances but struggling to come up with points down the stretch. Monday’s loss marked the seventh time in nine games that the Pelicans held an opponent under 100 points, but they are just 4-5 in that span. “That’s the first time a team has shot more than 50 percent against us in a long time,” Gentry told reporters after the Pacers shot 50.6 percent from the field on Monday. “But I still think we played well. This is a team that can make 120 points per game and we held them to (98).”

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Pelicans listed as 5-point favorites versus the Magic, while the game’s total is sitting at 210.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

The New Orleans Pelicans did not do as well as they wanted on their five-game road trip and come home with star power forward Anthony Davis banged up. The Pelicans hope to have their star back in the lineup when they host the Orlando Magic in the opener of a six-game homestand on Wednesday.

Davis, who missed one game on the 2-3 trip with a left hip injury, took a hard fall in the third quarter of Monday’s 98-95 setback at Indiana and suffered right hip and left thumb injuries. “We felt like we were in a groove and going pretty good there. It doesn’t help obviously with AD going down,” New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry told reporters of Davis, who had X-rays come back negative and is day-to-day. “I thought we were starting to click and do a lot of things offensively. Him going down took some of that away.” The Magic are another team trying to find some consistency and make a move up in the standings, but losses in eight of the last 10 games and a tough road trip are sapping any momentum. “We better stop it,” Orlando center Nikola Vucevic told reporters of the slide. “It’s not even about winning and losing, it’s just about trying to play the right way right now. We’re not doing that at all.”

New Orleans lost its last outing, a 98-95 result against the Pacers on January 16. The Pelicans covered in that game as a +5-point underdog, while the 193 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Orlando lost its last outing, a 125-112 result against the Nuggets on January 16. The Magic failed to cover in that game as a +6-point underdog, while the 237 combined points took the game OVER the total.
