The Orlando Magic are in a very desirable position right now.
Having just defeated the Memphis Grizzlies, 123-119 in overtime, it shows that the Magic may be getting closer to reaching the playoffs. The fanbase and organization have desired a playoff run since the post-dwightmare saga, back in 2013.
In addition, the Magic are now on a four-game winning streak since returning home from their road trip back in early March.
Not to mention the fact that recently acquired player, Michael Carter-Williams, has been playing exceptionally for the Magic. Since joining the team, Carter-Williams has added another defensive presence, something that head coach Steve Clifford has acknowledged when news broke that Carter-Williams would be signing a 10-day contract with the Magic.
The Magic will be hosting their last home game this upcoming Monday, before entering another long away game stretch.
This upcoming game will be a difficult one, due to how the team will be facing off against the Philadelphia 76ers, a team that has recently clinched the playoffs.
Not to mention that the Magic will be playing against a team loaded with talent, ranging from big man Joel Embiid and forwards Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler, just to name a few.
The Magic need to do what they can to win this game, because in doing so, the team may be able to move up a seed, reclaiming the eighth seed from their in-state rival, the Miami Heat, a team they’ll be playing against the following day after the home game against Philly.
Another thing to take note of is that this upcoming away stretch is against teams that have either already clinched the playoffs are about to. However, the Magic must focus on winning the rest of the games in their season if they hope to make the upcoming post-season.
