NBA Preview from The Sports Network



Wednesday, November 27th (All times Eastern)

Philadelphia 76ers (6-9) at Orlando Magic (5-9), 7 p.m.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Orlando Magic will shoot for back-to-back wins when they host the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday at Amway Center.

The Magic ended a four-game losing streak with Tuesday's 109-92 defeat of the Atlanta Hawks, as Arron Afflalo scored 10 of his game-high 26 points during the third quarter.

"It felt good," Afflalo said. "We got contributions all over the board. I thought the chemistry was great."

Victor Oladipo and Andrew Nicholson each netted 18 points, while Nikola Vucevic added 12 points and 15 rebounds for the Magic.

Orlando is 4-4 at home and will also entertain San Antonio on this short homestand.

Philadelphia has lost five of six games and dropped a 106-98 decision at Indiana on Saturday.

Rookie Michael Carter-Williams filled the stat sheet with 29 points, seven steals, six rebounds and three assists for the Sixers, who had just nine dressed players. Evan Turner had 21 points and 11 rebounds in defeat.

Spencer Hawes (knee), Thaddeus Young (personal) and Tony Wroten (back) did not play against the Pacers. Hawes is doubtful for Wednesday, while Young and Wroten are questionable.

"I knew the scoring load would fall on me more tonight without Spencer and Tony and Thaddeus," Carter-Williams said after the Pacers loss. "I knew it would be tough for us to get points, so I tried to take more shots and create more shots for myself."

The 76ers dropped two of three to the Magic last season and have lost 20 of the last 24 meetings between the teams.

Philadelphia is winless in four straight trips to Orlando and has lost 14 of the previous 17 games in the Magic Kingdom.
