Magic Host Grizzlies, Look To Halt Losing Skid

NBC Sports  --Field Level Media

The Orlando Magic return home to Amway Center on Friday looking to end a four-game losing streak, squaring off with a Memphis Grizzlies bunch that just ended a skid of their own.

Orlando dropped it's fourth straight on Wednesday in Dallas.

Issues with officiating aside, the lock-down defense Orlando played in the final minutes, juxtaposed with it's inability to score, has been a season-long issue thus far. The Magic's 99.8 points per game allowed on defense ranks second in the NBA, but at 95.1 points scored per outing, Orlando is the league's lowest-scoring team.

Orlando also shot a dismal 25 percent behind the 3-pt arc on Wednesday -- another facet vexing the Magic in a disappointing start to the season after they made the playoffs last spring. They are shooting just 26.6 percent from long range.

Terrence Ross, whose average of six 3-point attempts per game leads the Magic, is making just 19 percent of them. He missed Wednesday's contest with a knee injury and is considered day-to-day.

In contrast, Memphis found its outside touch on Wednesday in a 137-121 defeat of the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves. Guard Dillon Brooks knocked down five 3-pointers on his way to 31 points, pacing the Grizzlies to their highest single-game point total since 2007.

We sure need this one.  To lose at home to the Grizz would be the low point of this season so far.
