1 So Far This Season

These teams are meeting tonight for the fourth and final time this season.

Orlando has won two of the three matchups, but New York won the last time these played on Feb. 22 behind 26 points from Trey Burke.   

2 Beas-Mode

Michael Beasley exploded for 32 points on 14-for-21 shooting Saturday against the Pistons.

The 32 points tied his season-high and he also added four rebounds and three assists.

Beasley has been on fire lately, averaging 27.0 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists over his past three games.

However, he sat out practice Monday with an illness and is questionable for tonight’s game. 

3 Trainer's Room

Michael Beasley isn’t the only injury the Knicks are dealing with. 

The team announced Monday that Troy Williams suffered a fractured jaw Saturday and will miss the remainder of the season. Additionally, Enes Kanter, who didn’t play Saturday, is listed as doubtful (back, wrist).

However, the Knicks did get some good news as both Frank Ntilikina (illness) and Courtney Lee (foot) are expected to return to the lineup. 

4 More Injuries

Similar to the Knicks, the Magic is dealing with a handful of injuries as well.

Rookie Jonathan Isaac, who has struggled with injuries all season, rolled his ankle in Sunday’s loss to the Hawks and is listed as questionable for tonight’s game. If he can’t play, expect Mario Hezonja to see more playing time. 

Furthermore, Evan Fournier (knee) and Jonathan Simmons (wrist) will remain sidelined. 

5 Trey's On Fire

Trey Burke continued his stellar play of late with 18 points, 15 assists and five rebounds Saturday against the Pistons. 

Burke is only the second Knick since 2000 to have a game with at least 18 points, 15 assists and five rebounds and is the first to do so since Nate Robinson in 2009. 

Over his last five games, Burke is averaging 22.4 points, 9 assists and just 2.2 turnovers.
