The New York Knicks will hit the road for another trip away from Madison Square Garden, with a game against in the Orlando Magic ahead. A look at how to watch it on Wednesday night.

On Wednesday night, the New York Knicks will play their fifth game in eight days with a matchup against the Orlando Magic. They will hit the road to Orlando, FL, to play at the Amway Center, eyeing a multi-game win streak.

The Knicks broke through against the Chicago Bulls Monday, overcoming an 18-point deficit to stun Lauri Markkanen and co. at Madison Square Garden. Behind Bobby Portis’ 28 points and 11 rebounds against his old team, it was the most dramatic and grandest way possible for New York to win their first game of the season, delighting the fans who jeered the team just 48 hours prior against Boston.

That was just one win, though. Starting with Wednesday’s game in Orlando, the Knicks have another 48 minutes to lock down and control.

As of now, Dennis Smith Jr.’s status remains unknown. He missed Monday’s game due to the death of his stepmother. In his absence, Frank Ntilikina became the backup point guard, playing 22 minutes behind Elfrid Payton.

RJ Barrett will eye another double-double after he secured 19 points and 15 rebounds against Chicago. Through four games, he has 20.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists on 50 percent shooting and 46.7 percent from behind the arc. His play continues to rise as New York’s best all-around performer through the first week.

The Magic are 1-2 after losing to the Toronto Raptors Monday night. They still have long, intriguing players that can give the Knicks issues, including the rising Jonathan Isaac, Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic. Players like Mitchell Robinson and Frank Ntilikina will be useful defensively, given their respective wingspans.
