Orlando looks quite a definite favorite in comparison with their rival. Magic is on the 8th line with a pretty good margin after the 9th position. The team was considered to be in the Top 5 but the things went wrong for the Magic.
However, the Floridiansd can’t find the appropriate pattern for their game lately, having a horrible statistics after the New Year. Magic loses practically to everyone with only two wins in the League’s last 10 matches against Charlotte Hornets. Orlando can’t please with their attack either having scored under 100 points in the recent 10 games.
One of the reasons is the players’ injuries. The coach stuff should think about their physical preparation since the players are pretty much preassured at the trainings to come out fresh on a matchday.
Orlando’s first part of the season looked quite confident where they’ve managed to make a big ponts reserve. In order to stay in the play-off zone Steve Clifford will have to reconfigurate the tactics of the team to find a balance between all the lines. The upcoming match is a perfect opportunity for the head coach to make necessary experiment.
New York Knicks
New York finds himself at the very bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. The Knicks occupy the intermediate 13th line, which looks absolutely fair and logical result. In addition, even the change of coach during the season did not help them. They have one of the worst differences between scored and missed points in the League – minus 7 points on average per match.
Thanks to recent two victories against Cleveland and Indiana, Mike Miller’s players were able to score a small margin from the two teams from the bottom of the standings. But at the same time, to rise a line higher, they still need at least a few victories.
Sure thing statistically the Knicks could pass into the play-offs but it is an impossible task considering the current state of the team. New York needs a new breath. Recently, the New Yorkers have much problems with their attack, although the composition of the attackers is often changed to find the right combination. The team has definarely made conclusions for them and will wait till the mid-season period to make the necessary changes in their game.

The guests have exceeded the home team in these indicators for several years, so they have a much better chance of winning this match than their opponents.
