Magic SBNation Blog: Orlando Pinstriped Post

Orlando has the league’s worst record but find ways to contend against the league’s best. Hopefully tonight they fail to find a way as the Rockets look to take the series sweep over them.

Tonight, the Rockets will be without Trevor Ariza and Chris Paul tonight as both are nursing injuries sustained in Sunday’s win over the Suns. Look for Eric Gordon and Luc Mbah a Moute to get starts tonight and for Gerald Green to get more minutes.

For the Magic, Aaron Gordon takes a seat tonight with a strained hip flexor, so the sides are somewhat balanced out.

Houston should take advantage with Gordon out and should not let this Magic team in.
