Orlando Magic vs Atlanta Hawks in Orlando

If you’re a sports fan, it’s hard to match the excitement of a competitive NBA basketball game. NBA players are some of the best basketball athletes on the planet. The Orlando Magic have a particularly interesting group of young players who play a great brand of basketball for fans to enjoy.

What to Watch For

While the Orlando Magic are having a bit of a tough year in terms of their record, they have a lot of young talent that’s showing promise this season. At the center of this exciting young team is Mo Bamba, an athletic big man who looks to be one of the next rising stars in the league. On the other side of things, the Hawks bring their own entertainment with guys like Jeremy Lin and Kent Bazemore.

What really makes Orlando Magic basketball special is that the team plays such an important role in the city as a whole. The people of Orlando have a strong connection to the Magic, and the stadium is located directly in the center of the city. This means that people from all over the city (and the state) fill up the stadium and the streets surrounding it, making for an electric atmosphere.

Because the stadium is located in the middle of the city, you also have access to tons of great food and entertainment options before and after the game. If you’re looking to kill a bit of time, there’s never a shortage of things to do near an Orlando Magic game.

Orlando’s hometown NBA team plays seven games at home in the month of January, and many of these games are against teams that are in the preseason conversation for playoff spots. Whether you’re hoping for a Magic win or just here to see some of your favorite players in person, there’s something to watch for in each of these home games.

vs. Boston Celtics

Saturday, Jan. 12 | 7:00 PM

The Boston Celtics were one of the best teams in the league last year, going 55-27 until eventually losing to the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals. Now that LeBron James is in the Western Conference, the Celtics are expected to be the best team in the East, with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward both healthy again this year as well.

vs. Houston Rockets

Sunday, Jan. 13 | 6:00 PM

Houston had a stellar regular season, finishing 65-17, but lost in the Western Conference finals to the eventual champions, the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets have added a number of exciting players in the offseason—most notably, Carmelo Anthony—to help boost their chances at another championship run. They will be an exciting team to watch when they come to Orlando in January.

vs. Brooklyn Nets

Friday, Jan. 18 | 7:00 PM

If you are hoping to witness the admittedly rare Magic victory, the game against the Brooklyn Nets (28-54 last year) is probably your best chance. A lot can happen in the first couple months of the season, but preseason rankings currently have Brooklyn at #23 (of 30) compared to the Magic at #28. Every other team that the Magic play is ranked better than average to start the season, with the Washington Wizards being the next closest at #14.

vs. Milwaukee Bucks

Saturday, Jan. 19 | 7:00 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the shining star on this team, and one of the best players in the entire NBA. He hopes to lead this Milwaukee Bucks team back to the playoffs, where they can hopefully make it out of the first round—unlike last year, where they went 44-38 and were sent home early in the playoffs. Having made a couple of key offseason additions, this team is definitely one to watch.

vs. Washington Wizards

Friday, Jan. 25 | 7:00 PM

The Washington Wizards barely had a winning record last year, only managing to go 43-39 on the season. A disappointing first round playoff exit led to a restructuring offseason with a lot of big additions to the team, including Orlando alumni Dwight Howard and Austin Rivers. Okay, so Rivers didn’t play professionally in Orlando, but he grew up here and went to Winter Park High School. It’s difficult to tell how good—or bad—this team will be by the time they come to Orlando, but it promises to be a thrilling match up either way.

vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Tuesday, Jan. 29 | 7:00 PM

Oklahoma City was a playoff hopeful last year who suffered a disappointing first-round exit when they finally made it there after a 48-34 regular season. Perennial all-star Russell Westbrook underwent knee surgery just before the start of training camp this year, but should be back in the lineup by the time the Thunder are in town. This team looks good this year, and they will certainly bring a show when they visit the Magic.

vs. Indiana Pacers

Thursday, Jan. 31 | 7:00 PM

All the way back in 2013, the Orlando Magic drafted a young man named Victor Oladipo with the second overall pick. Though he was traded away after not making a splash in three years here, he eventually became an all-star in his first year with the Indiana Pacers. Those same Pacers, now led by Oladipo as he enters his sixth NBA year, come to town on the last day of the month for a showdown with the Magic.

Orlando may be known primarily for its theme parks but did you know we have a bustling arts community as well? Today we’re taking a look at some of the best art exhibits and festivals in the area.

If you’re up for the drive, the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg is home to the largest collection of Dalí’s works outside of Europe. This exquisite 20,000 sq. ft. gallery houses more than 2,000 of Dalí’s oil and watercolor paintings, sketches, sculptures, and other unique pieces.

A little closer to home, you can find the City Arts Factory in Downtown Orlando. This is our city’s largest collective gallery with a fusion of local and international pieces that are rotated regularly. Not only do they host a variety of exhibitions throughout the year, but they also host special events like the annual Día De Los Muertos & Monster Factory event where they welcome artists from all over the country to showcase their unique talents during the Day of the Dead and Halloween street party.

In autumn, Winter Park hosts its own annual art festival. This art show takes place on the sidewalks of Central Park and promises a wonderful afternoon of visual art and live entertainment for the whole family. Admission is always free and parking is plentiful.

Whether it’s an art museum or local artists showcasing their latest pieces, Orlando always has something going on in the arts community. Our property is only about 25 minutes from downtown, home to most of Orlando’s art district. Stay central to all your destinations and book your stay at Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando today.
