The New York Knicks travel to the Amway Center to do battle with the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. Here’s a Knicks vs Magic Prediction.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been in a rut as they've lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after getting beaten by the Rockets in a 105-103 road loss on Monday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 27 points and seven assists, Donte DiVincenzo added 23 points with four assists while Josh Hart chipped in with 17 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Knicks shot 45 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the 3-point line as they showed plenty of fight to rally all the way back from a 15-point deficit, only to lose in a heartbreaker with the Rockets' Aaron Holiday draining the game-winning free throws with just 0.1 seconds left on the clock.

Orlando Magic

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in decent shape as they've won five of their last seven games overall, but they are looking to bounce back in this one after getting run over by the Thunder in a 127-113 loss last night. Paolo Banchero led the team with 23 points and 10 assists, Wendell Carter Jr. added 22 points while Jalen Suggs chipped in with 17 points, seven rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Magic shot 45 percent from the field and 11 of 36 from the 3-point line as they started to fall behind in the second quarter where they scored just 20 points, before they got run off the floor in the second half where they allowed 67 points. Moritz Wagner chipped in with 11 points off the bench but he was the only reserve player who scored more than six points. The Magic will meet the Cavaliers after this one.

Knicks vs Magic Prediction

The Knicks are still shorthanded with Julius Randle still out and they are still keeping eyes on Donte DiVincenzo and Isaiah Hartenstein who are both questionable, while the Magic are coming in with a full squad once again. The Knicks have been doing it tough ever since they lost Julius Randle to injury and they will be kicking themselves after falling painfully short to the Rockets in their last outing, while the Magic were starting to get on a roll before last night's ugly loss to the Thunder. It's hard to split either team at the moment, but the Knicks really need a win to get their season back on track and I think they can get it done against this Magic team playing on zero days' rest.
