The OKC Thunder travels to the land of Disney looking to extend their imposing play against the Orlando Magic. Gameday breaks down the match.

It doesn’t matter if the OKC Thunder are undersized or undermanned because they always find a way to get the win.

This is a common theme for OKC throughout this season, just look at there 17 point come from behind conquest against the Houston Rockets on Monday. They showed nothing but perseverance and a solid team effort to dig themselves out of a hole.

But that should come as no surprise, as they have consistently done this. Monday’s victory saw the squad tally their fourth-largest resurgence this season. The other three were against the Chicago Bulls (26 points), Memphis Grizzlies (24) and LA Clippers (18).

The OKC Thunder’s insurmountable will is going to make for one great match when they take on the Orlando Magic.

OKC is 25-19 on a two-game win streak, winning six of their last ten. While the Magic are 21-23 and holding the seventh spot in the East.

Steve Clifford’s side is coming off a huge 23 point triumph over his former team the Charlotte Hornets. They are sixth in defense allowing 105.6 points per game which has troubled their opponents.

Despite their shooting being inconsistent at times, they are able to give themselves opportunities to win through getting stops and outbursts from valuable scorers.

Their one-point win against the Los Angeles Lakers last Thursday shocked the NBA and made many consider that to be the beginning of igniting a spark for the team. It was a stellar performance which we will go over in the keys to the game.
