Ahead of the start of the Milwaukee Bucks’ first round playoff series, we caught up with an Orlando Magic expert to get the inside track on the opposition.

With all eight first round series now locked in around the NBA, the countdown to the beginning of the postseason is well and truly on.

The playoffs will officially get underway on Monday at Walt Disney World Resort, but for the Milwaukee Bucks and Orlando Magic, the wait will continue through to Tuesday before they can get their series underway.

The Bucks have seen plenty of the Magic this season, facing off against Orlando on four occasions and prevailing as the victors every time.

Still, that doesn’t mean that Bucks fans don’t have plenty left to learn about the Magic, particularly as to how things stand with Steve Clifford’s team since play resumed in the bubble.

In an attempt to get a handle on all things Orlando basketball, Jordan Treske and I caught up with our Magic counterpart, Philip Rossman-Reich, who is the long-time site expert at FanSided’s Orlando Magic Daily (@OMagicDaily), as well being the host of the Locked On Magic podcast.

Philip was kind enough to share his wisdom with us, and answer some key questions about the Magic perspective heading into this series.

So without further ado, let’s get into the conversation.
