Time is running out.
The Magic have two weeks before they must make a pretty critical decision for the future of the franchise. Maybe it is not as earth-shattering as the decision the team had to make last year at the trade deadline, but it is one that has become very personal for Magic fans.
Dwight Howard might have been a superstar, but J.J. Redick is a fan favorite. Orlando...
LA Clippers -250 @ Orlando Magic
The Magic are reeling, having dropped 10 straight. They will also likely be without Jameer Nelson, JJ Redick, Glen Davis, and Aaron Afflalo.
