Magic need to make road woes disappear

(Sports Network) – The last place the Orlando Magic probably want to be right
now is in another team’s gymnasium.

After losing 12 straight games on the road, the Magic will hit the dirt trail
again, this time at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

On a brighter note, the Magic have won three in a row against the Jazz.

But besides the current series record with the Jazz, Orlando is three road
setbacks shy of matching the franchise record set during the 1989-90
season — its first in the NBA.

The Magic also have lost five in a row overall and 13 of their last 14 games.
Whether the Magic end their road woes or not Monday night, they will open a
brief two-game homestand versus Cleveland and Golden State.

Also, the Magic are just 1-7 since acquiring Darko Milicic and guard Carlos
Arroyo from the Detroit Pistons last month, in exchange for forward Kelvin
Cato and a future first-round pick.
