Warriors vs Magic Prediction: Recent Form

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors have struggled so far in the current season. With 3 wins and 5 defeats, they are currently in the 12th position in the Western Conference. The Warriors looked good in the initial phase of the last game against the Heat. They got a lead of 10 points in the second half. However, 20 turnovers from Golden State were turned into 28 points for Miami after that which changed the momentum. At last, it was a disheartening result for Steve Kerr and his men.

Stephen Curry became the leading scorer for his side once again. He finished with 23 points, 13 rebounds, and 13 assists. Andrew Wiggins also looked and ended the game with 21 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic are currently looking clueless at 1-7 in the last position of the Eastern Conference. The Magic were in control of the game by the end of the third quarter in the last fixture against the Thunder. They led by 3 points before heading into the fourth quarter. A clinical performance from the Thunder in the last phase of the game put Orlando on the back foot and they did not get time to recover.

Wendell Carter Jr. turned out to be the highest scorer for the Magic. He secured 30 points with 12 rebounds. Franz Wagner also played well and finished with 20 points and 7 assists.
