Game Preview

The Orlando Magic have had a day to rest for Friday night and should have a clear advantage over the Nuggets when the teams meet in Denver.

The Nuggets played a thriller in Golden State on Thursday night, rallying from 18 down with 6:51 left to win it 130-127 on Nikola Jokic’s 39-foot bank shot at the buzzer.

Denver expended a lot of energy to win its sixth straight road game and now faces a quick turnaround in one of the toughest back-to-back situations. Friday night’s game starts less than 21 hours after Thursday’s wrapped up.
