The Orlando Magic will go for their season-high fourth win in a row when they host the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night.
Orlando is coming off a 120-115 win on the road over the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night, which followed double-digit road wins over the Minnesota Timberwolves and Houston Rockets within the last week. The Magic sit in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings and are looking to improve upon that positioning in order to avoid the NBA-best Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the playoffs.
As Orlando (30-35) looks to climb from its current spot of eighth in the Eastern Conference standings, its front office is trying to determine what to do about fans in the stands. The Magic planned to keep the game open to ticket holders as of late Wednesday afternoon -- after the NCAA and Golden State Warriors announced that they would play upcoming games in empty arenas.
