NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fourth season, 16th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Elfrid Payton (12.7 ppg, Orlando/Phoenix), G Jrue Holiday (19 ppg), F E'Twaun Moore (12.5 ppg), F Anthony Davis, (28.1 ppg), C Julius Randle (16.1 ppg, Lakers).
KEY LOSSES: C-F DeMarcus Cousins, G Rajon Rondo
KEY ADDITIONS: Randle, Payton
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Davis and Holiday played the best basketball of their careers last season and provide the Pelicans hope of returning to the playoffs. Davis has continued working on building his physique and strength with the expectation that he might have to play more at center now the Cousins is out of the picture. Davis also says his goal is to prove he is the most dominant player in the NBA. Holiday thrived last season when he was able to play more at shooting guard, allowing him to focus more on scoring and crunch-time defending than setting up the offense. The acquisition of Payton should allow Holiday to resume that role.
OUTLOOK: While it's hard to replace Cousins and Rondo, general manager Dell Demps is hoping Randle and Payton wind up being better fits because of their relative youth, defensive play and ability to thrive in an up-tempo offense. Gentry has said he wants the Pelicans to play even faster than their NBA-leading pace last season. It just might work. New Orleans' top three front court players 'Davis, Randle and Nikola Mirotic' all have shown they can be effective playing that way.
ORLANDO: LAST SEASON: 25-57, missed playoffs.
COACH: Steve Clifford (first season, sixth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Evan Fournier (17.8 ppg), G D.J. Augustin (10.2 ppg), F Aaron Gordon (17.6 ppg), F Jonathan Isaac (5.4 ppg), C Nik Vucevic (16.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C Bismack Biyombo, G Mario Hezonja
KEY ADDITIONS: C Mohamed Bamba, C Timofey Mozgov
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Gordon, armed with a new long-term contract at age 23, is expected to emerge as a team leader and All-Star in his fifth NBA season. Bamba, a 7-footer and first-round draft pick, and Isaac, who's listed as 6-10, will give the team a different defensive capacity with their enormous wingspans.
OUTLOOK: Clifford was an assistant
COACH under Stan Van Gundy when the Magic last qualified for the playoffs in 2011-12. In six seasons since, under four different head
COACHes, the Magic have averaged 26 wins and have not come close to a playoff berth. The roster appears deeper, especially at the big positions, but much of that depth depends on the health of the injury-prone Isaac, Gordon and Vucevic.
Magic can't afford slip-up vs. Pelicans

Five of the Orlando Magic's six losses in las sex weeks have come against teams with losing records.

Orlando can hardly afford another.

The Magic (33-38) host the New Orleans Pelicans (31-42) on Wednesday night and enter the game 1 1/2 games behind Miami for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Pelicans are coming off a 129-125 overtime win in Dallas on Monday night, a win that snapped New Orleans' six-game losing streak.

Orlando has won its past two games, scratching to get at its first postseason berth since 2012.

"In past years, this time of year we'd already be planning our vacations, unfortunately," All-Star center Nikola Vucevic, who arrived in Orlando a season after the Magic's last playoff appearance, said on NBA.com.

"It's much different now and much more fun. As a basketball player and a competitor, you want to be in this situation, fight for something, play for something and be in the big moments. So, it's up to us to respond."

New Orleans has been eliminated from playoff contention in the Western Conference, and disgruntled star forward Anthony Davis is limited to about 20 minutes per game. But the Pelicans are finding something to play for, as young players are getting a chance to showcase their skills.

One of those is former Orlando point guard Elfrid Payton, who has ripped off five consecutive triple-doubles. The Magic sent him to the Phoenix Suns in February 2018 for a second-round pick, and he landed in New Orleans as a free agent last summer.

Payton had 19 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds against Dallas.

"He's been playing that way. He has been doing a good job for us," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry told reporters recently.

"The rebounding part, to me, has been the biggest surprise. To be a point guard and be able to come up with double-digit rebounds night after night after night, that is really tough to do. Any time they mention you in the same breath as (Russell) Westbrook, you have to feel really good about it. If they mention you in the same breath as Oscar Robertson, that is another whole area."

Pelicans post Julius Randle scored 30 points Monday night. He poured in a career-high 45 against Portland last week and is averaging 21.3 points for the season.

Vucevic has been the driving force behind Orlando's playoff push, as he is averaging career-high totals of 20.7 points and 12.1 rebounds. He could join Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard as the only Magic players to average 20 and 12 for a season. Howard did it four times; O'Neal twice.

"The thing that Vooch does naturally -- which separates him, in my opinion, from other centers -- is when he has the ball we are organized because of his decision-making and understanding who he's on the floor with and what they can do," coach Steve Clifford said to the media.

"It's invaluable to have anybody else on the floor who can do that other than your point guard, particularly a center who can play like that. In many ways, when he's out there, it's like playing with two point guards."

Orlando won the first meeting against the Pelicans, 118-88 in New Orleans on Feb. 12. Vucevic had 25 points and 17 rebounds in the win. Payton was out because of an ankle injury.
