Season series: First meeting; Utah won 2-0 last season

Orlando has lost back-to-back games since starting 2-0 on the season. This is the finale of a 4-game road stretch for the Magic, who are 1-2 on the road heading into this matchup. Orlando has yet to find a consistent scoring option as it has had a different leading scorer in each of its 4 games. The Magic have been phenomenal defensively to start the season, only allowing 101.8 opponent points per game but have struggled shooting beyond the arc. The Magic are making only 9.8 three-pointers per game and shooting only 30.7% from that range as a unit.

Utah dropped 133 points on the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday to win the game 133-109, covering as a 2-point favorite. It was a very balanced scoring game for the Jazz as Utah saw 5 players score at least 14 points while also being efficient as a team. The Jazz shot 54% from the field and 51.2% from the 3-point line as a team in the win.
