Miles Bridges leads Hornets into action against Magic

Following a two-game road trip that produced the first win under new head coach Jamahl Mosley, the Orlando Magic return home on Wednesday to play the red-hot Charlotte Hornets.

The Hornets cooled off slightly on Monday, but they still put up big offensive numbers in a 140-129 overtime loss to the visiting Boston Celtics. Charlotte was coming off a 3-0 start for the first time in franchise history.

Eastern Conference Player of the Week Miles Bridges had 25 points and 10 rebounds, while LaMelo Ball hit seven of Charlotte's 19 3-pointers and finished with 25 points and nine assists. The Hornets had been looking to complete a back-to-back sweep that included a 111-95 triumph over the host Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.
