Philadelphia has lost their last seven games entering this matchup against Orlando. On Sunday, they were slapped around by the Knicks in Madison Square Garden. Jrue Holiday continues to be the lone star that’s producing on both sides of the court, as he finished with 30 points, 5 assists and 5 boards. Luckily the team’s athletic swingman, Thaddeus Young has returned from injury and is hoping to be more in sync this time around against the Magic. Orlando has also lost their last five games and is 1-9 in their last ten games.

The last time these two teams met was over three weeks ago, with the Sixers coming out victorious in a 61-78 win. Philadelphia and coach Doug Collins understand the importance of snapping this losing streak of theirs in order to breathe some life into their limited playoff hopes. Look for Philly to bring forth a stronger effort tonight against Orlando in their home court.
