The Sacramento Kings begin a four-game road swing on Wednesday night when they visit an Orlando Magic team that is in the middle of a four-game homestand at Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. The Magic will play their third consecutive home game, part of a seven-of-eight home stretch. They dropped theopener to the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday, 107-104, but won the second leg of the back-to-back on Monday, 117-108.
Over their last four games, the Orlando Magic have shot 44.1 percent from 3-point range, second best in the league during this stretch. On Monday, they drilled a season-most 19 threes. It was only the fourth time in franchise history they made at least that many.
On the second night of their back-to-back series, the Magic bounced back and came out on top thanks to another big night from Nikola Vucevic. Orlando (8-10) defeated the visiting Charlotte Hornets (7-10) 117-108 Monday night. Vucevic nearly posted a triple-double, leading the charge with 28 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists on 11-23 shooting, including 4-7 from the 3-point line.
