Fox Sports’ preseason preview has officially begun.
With only the third day left until the NBA Draft, the show has started to reveal some of the most exciting preseason games to come out of this year’s game.
First up is the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Orlando Magic, which is set to be played this Friday at 7:30 p.m.
ET on ESPN2.
The Lakers have a great chance to win this game.
The Magic have been losing to teams in the league’s lower tier and have been getting blown out by some of them, but they have shown some signs of life in their past few games against the Suns and Nets.
They have lost two straight games to the Lakers and have lost five of six.
That said, the Lakers do have one of the better starting lineups in the game and are coming off a huge win against the Philadelphia 76ers, so this could be an opportunity to give them some of that momentum.
Orlando’s starting five is still pretty good, as they are a good defensive team with Dwight Howard, Elfrid Payton, and Willie Green on the court.
However, the Magic are also a team that has been losing in recent weeks.
They lost three of four to the Los Angelos Lakers last week, including the loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
That is probably why they are on the outside looking in in terms of the standings.
However, Orlando has shown some glimpses of what they can do defensively in recent games.
They were able to get out and run the ball, get a big lead, and then finish with some big plays.
That was enough to pull them out of a tie with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
It was also enough to knock the Miami Heat out of the playoffs.
This is a team with a lot of talent that is going to have to play a good defense to be successful.
The Orlando Magic will need to do some work to get a win this week, but I believe they have the potential to be one of this season’s surprises.
There are a few things going on in this game that could go a long way in determining the outcome of this game, but one thing that could help the Magic is how their point guard position looks.
Evan Fournier is the team’s leading scorer and is one of their top scorers in the preseason.
He has shown a lot more confidence in his shot this preseason, which should help him against a weak Los Angeles point guard like Shaquille O’Neal.
This could also be a game where Orlando’s other two leading scorers, Tobias Harris and Elfrid Curry, could be able to step up and help the team score some points.
If Orlando does have a point guard who can make shots, I would love to see them go to Fourniest and get him involved.
He is a dynamic scorer and will be a huge threat to help the Lakers score points.
I think he could be a factor in this series.
If this game does go the Lakers way, I think this could give the team some momentum heading into the postseason.
With a team like the Lakers, which has a lot going for it, this could help them win a lot games.
The Orlando Magic are definitely a team to watch heading into this game and the upcoming playoffs.
They will be playing a lot better than they did in their recent games against teams in their lower tier, and that could put Orlando on the path to winning a lot.
They should be one to watch out for in this upcoming series.
The Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics will be the second preseason game this week.
The first preseason game that will be broadcast this week will be on Wednesday night.
The Chicago Bulls will play the Boston Celtics at 7 p.mi. ET.
