Orlando (7-6) at Chicago (6-5) 8:30 pm EST

CHICAGO (Ticker) - Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic look to push their winning streak to five games on Tuesday when they visit the Chicago Bulls at United Center.

Since dropping a 98-95 decision to the New Orleans Hornets on November 19, the Magic have used a stout defense to reel off their longest winning streak since March 15-23, 2003.

Howard collected 10 points and 10 rebounds Monday while Jameer Nelson scored nine of his 16 points in the fourth quarter as Orlando edged the Boston Celtics, 87-83.

The Magic have yielded an average of just 83 points during their winning streak.

The Bulls enter Tuesday's contest hoping to extend a winning stretch of their own.

Ben Gordon scored 18 points off the bench and fellow reserve Othella Harrington added 16 as Chicago posted its third straight win with a 94-89 triumph over the Houston Rockets on Saturday.
