We started in summer league. We worked on it in preseason. Now it's time to make a game thread a game thread in the regular season.
Magic at Wolves
7:00 pm Central
Last night, the Magic lost their season opener in Indiana to the Pacers. They went with this starting lineup:
Tobias Harris missed yesterday's game with an ankle injury, otherwise he would have started in place of Maxiel. Not clear whether he'll be available tonight or not.
Last night also featured a big game from backup power forward Andrew Nicholson, as well as the much anticipated debut of rookie Victor Oladipo. 'Dipo had his moments, and definitely looks like a pro out there. He's gonna be a good one.
For the Wolves, expect this starting lineup:
Rick Adelman has hedged about who will start at small forward, so it could be Derrick Williams or even Dante Cunningham, but I'm guessing it's Brewer in the end. We'll see tonight.
A second half thread will post at about 8:15 pm.
