Orlando Magic (18-40) at 76ers (31-25)
Saturday at 5 p.m., at Wells Fargo Center
On paper, this should be nothing more than a tune-up for the Sixers upcoming three-game road trip against the Washington Wizards (Sunday), Miami Heat (Tuesday) and Cleveland Cavaliers (Thursday). Orlando has lost four straight and eight of their last 12 games. The Sixers will look to extend their winning streak to seven games.
