Full injury report, odds, TV, lineups for April 3

On Wednesday, the New Orleans Pelicans (45-30) host the Orlando Magic (44-31), and if you’re wondering how to catch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Pelicans lost, 124-111, to the Phoenix Suns on Monday, dropping them to 1-3 on their six-game homestand. They gave up 52 points to Devin Booker and trailed for most of the contest, going down by as many as 27 points. Zion Williamson led the team in scoring for the fifth straight game, producing 30 points and five assists.

Following the loss, New Orleans holds a one-game lead over Sacramento and Phoenix for sixth place in the Western Conference with seven games left. The team can clinch, at worst, a spot in the play-in tournament with a win on Wednesday.

The Magic are coming off a 104-103 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday to wrap up an eight-game homestand (5-3). Franz Wagner scored a team-high 20 points and six rebounds, Wendell Carter Jr. had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and Paolo Banchero and Jalen Suggs each added 15 points to lead the Magic.

Orlando moved up to fourth place in the Eastern Conference following their win and a loss by the New York Knicks on Tuesday. They have the ninth-hardest schedule remaining, with five out of their last seven games on the road.

The meeting between the Magic and Pelicans is the second of the season. The Magic took the first meeting on March 21 and have won 14 out of the last 18 meetings against the Pelicans.
