The Magic and Bulls tip it off on Thursday night at 8PM Eastern Time from Chicago. Orlando enters with a day of rest while the Bulls are on the back end of a back to back and in a horrible spot playing their fourth game in five night and facing airplane travel to each destination. Heading into their game on Wednesday night at Milwaukee the Bulls have piled up seven straight wins. In their last meeting against the Orlando Magic the Chicago Bulls prevailed with the 97-83 road win as a +1 point underdog. Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer each had 20 or more points in the win. Kyle Korver contributed with 18 points as he made 5 of his 7 from the three point line. Orlando shot just 40% from the field in the loss. Dwight Howard had 28 points with 15 points on 11 of 18 shooting from the floor.

Orlando carries a 12-7 road record as they team heads into Charlotte on Tuesday night. As they face the Bobcats the Magic have won four of their past five road games. Orlando continues to work that inside outside strategy with Dwight Howard in the middle. It has been effective because the Orlando jump shooters are converting open looks as the team ranks 4th in the NBA in three point shooting with 38.8% for the season. Dwight Howard has averaged over 20 points and is pulling down 15 rebounds per game. Ryan Anderson has stepped up this season with a 16 point and 7 ½ rebounding average a game along with 44.2% shooting. Five Magic players average in double digit scoring on the season which makes things easier for Dwight Howard to work around the paint.
