Orlando Magic (4-3) at Oklahoma City Thunder (1-6), 8:00 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The Orlando Magic will attempt to get back on the winning track Wednesday as they kickoff a three-game road trip by visiting the struggling Oklahoma City Thunder at the Ford Center.
The Magic, who will be looking for their first road win of the young season, missed out on a chance for a perfect homestand when they fell to the Portland Trail Blazers, 106-99, on Monday.
All-Star Dwight Howard finished with 29 points and 19 rebounds for Orlando, which had won the first four games of a five-game stint at Amway Arena. Hedo Turkoglu had 35 points on 11-of-21 shooting, including 4-of-7 from three-point range.
Oklahoma City continues to struggle mightily in its first season since moving from Seattle.
The Thunder lost their fourth straight game Monday when Indiana's T.J. Ford scored 11 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and finished with 10 assists, as the Pacers toppled Oklahoma City, 107-99, at Conseco Fieldhouse.
Second-year star Kevin Durant netted a game-high 37 points on 13-of-27 shooting with eight boards for the Thunder, who lost for the sixth time in seven games to open the season.
Jeff Green had 14 points and seven rebounds for Oklahoma City.
On the injury front Thunder power forward Chris Wilcox is questionable for Wednesday's game with a sprained right knee while Howard has a swollen left knee but is listed as probable by the Magic.
Orlando has won five straight against the Thunder franchise.
