NBA Playoffs 2012: Why Orlando Magic Are in Trouble Heading into Playoffs

The Orlando Magic should be concerned with their chances of making a run in the 2012 NBA playoffs.

The Magic are currently in a three-team race for the fourth seed and home court advantage.

If Orlando was able to capture that spot, they would face either the Boston Celtics or Atlanta Hawks in the first round. Both teams have had the Magic's number this year, with a combined 5-0 record against Orlando.

Seemingly, the best case scenario for the Magic is to continue their recent skid (3-7 in the last 10 games). Doing so would mean falling to the sixth seed and earning a face-off with the Indiana Pacers in the first round.

But while Orlando is built on the steamroller that is Dwight Howard, the Pacers are built around eight different players.

Any way you look at it, the Magic have a tough road to a ring in this year's postseason.
