Game 3: Nets (1-1) at Magic (0-2), 5 PM - Orlando hasn't really done anything right this week, and the Nets have arguably the league's top player in Terrence Williams, so this one might get ugly. Magic summer-league coach Patrick Ewing wants center Daniel Orton, just 1-of-14 from the floor in the first two games, to assert himself offensively by demanding the ball. And as poorly as he's played, the Magic have nothing to lose but games, really, but giving him the ball. They need interior offense, because their wing players haven't shown they can shoot from the outside. Third overall draft pick Derrick Favors of New Jersey should roll in this one, provided that his teammates manage to get him the ball.
