ORLANDO SCOUTING REPORT
The Magic come into Chase Center as owners of the second worst record in the NBA after losing eight of their last nine games. Orlando will be playing the second of five straight road games, and they’ll be without rookie lottery pick Jalen Suggs, who is sitting out with a thumb injury. Suggs and fellow Orlando rookie Franz Wagner are in the top 10 among rookie in scoring, assists and rebounding, but it’s second year guard Cole Anthony who has emerged as the team’s leader. Anthony leads the team in scoring and assists, but despite their young talent, the Magic have yet to win consecutive games this season.
