Milwaukee Bucks (2-4) at Orlando Magic (3-5), 7 p.m.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Orlando Magic hope to end a three-game losing streak when they host the Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday at Amway Center.

The Magic will play their next three games at home and have Dallas and Miami on the slate as well. In a 120-105 setback at Boston on Monday, Arron Afflalo netted 18 points and Nikola Vucevic added 15 with 10 rebounds to lead the Magic, who have dropped three in a row on the heels of a three-game winning streak.

Orlando has also lost 10 straight to Boston and is mired in a 16-game road skid dating back to last season.

"I don't really feel like we were truly in the game at any point just simply because we couldn't get stops," Afflalo said.

Orlando is 3-5 on the season and 3-1 as the host.

Milwaukee has dropped two straight and three of four games and suffered a 118-95 setback at Miami on Tuesday in the opener of a three-game road trip.

Heat star LeBron James had 33 points and did not play in the fourth quarter.

Gary Neal and John Henson scored 18 points apiece to pace the Bucks, whose starters combined for just 35 points.

"This was just one game," said Bucks head coach Larry Drew. "We got to get this one behind us."

The Bucks will also visit Indiana on this trip and are 1-2 as the visitor.

Milwaukee won two of three meetings with Orlando last season, but has lost eight of 10 and 15 of the past 19 matchups in this series.

The Bucks haven't fared too well in the Magic Kingdom, losing 14 straight and 15 of 16 visits there.
