The Magic defense has been pretty bad to start the year and now they have to travel into Oklahoma City to play a Thunder team with a pair of guards that might destroy this team in the NBA Odds by themselves.

7:00 PM ET, Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK


Speaking of little to no defense, the Magic have one of the worst defenses in the NBA and they are fumbling around trying to fix it. Frank Vogel recently inserted Jeff Green into the starting lineup, but at this point in his career, Green is just an average defender compared to the player he was four or five years ago.

The Magic are giving up over 110 points per 100 possessions this season and now they are heading into Oklahoma City for a pace-up game against the Thunder. OKC is bound to get out to a lead in this game, forcing the Magic to work faster on offense, and potentially take more threes to try to catch up.

The Thunder also might score about 125 points in this one. Victor Oladipo and Russell Westbrook might drop 75 points just between the two of them and even with the Thunder’s stronger defense, this game is going to get out of hand and if that happens, the likelihood of a high scoring game is more likely.
