Prediction for Magic vs. NBA Warriors:
Orlando is in the middle of a grueling four-game West Coast road trip. The Magic lost at the Suns on New Year's Eve, played at the Warriors on Tuesday night and then played on the road against the Kings and Nuggets to close out the week. Orlando may be a young team, but the grueling journey of the NBA schedule may be catching up with them this week.
Golden State is in the midst of a seven-game home stretch. The Warriors last played Friday at home against the Mavericks. They lost that match 132-122. But they will have two full days to rest before this match without the stress of travel. This season has been tough for the Warriors at times, but I like them to cover the soft line Tuesday night at home against the Magic.
