The 7-3 Magic visit Oakland and the 3-6 Warriors

The Orlando Magic continue their West Coast swing Thursday night on national television Thursday night as they visit the Golden State Warriors. Fresh off an all-too-close win against the Portland Trail Blazers in the Rose Garden, the Magic remain one of the hottest teams in the league, despite the trade rumors swirling around their best player, Dwight Howard.

Howard was far from his best against the Blazers last night, scoring only 13 points thanks to 3-12 free throw shooting, but his typically stout defense frustrated the Blazers. He was saved by his teammates' dynamite three-point shooting; they made 16-27, good for a 59.1 percentage.

The Warriors are 3-6, but are fresh off beating the Miami Heat in their house Tuesday night, snapping a five-game losing streak after starting the season 2-1. They'll need Andris Biedrins to step up defensively to stop Howard if they're going to start a winning streak.

Game Date/Time: Thursday, Jan. 12, 10:30 p.m. ET

TV: TNT (National)
