Game 1: Thunder (2-1) at Magic (0-3), 1 PM - Even without power forward Serge Ibaka, who injured his left ankle on Tuesday and won't play the rest of the week, the Thunder hold an embarrassing edge over the Magic in terms of talent, boasting seven other players likely to make the final roster this season. In Daniel Orton, Orlando has but one player with a guaranteed deal, and he hasn't made a basket since Monday. Orton, who readily admits he is out of shape, faces the challenge of defending the active, athletic Byron Mullens. It's likely that Paul Davis will continue to play big minutes in relief of Orton. Additionally, look for James Harden to continue his parade to the foul line. Orlando's lack of perimeter defense or athletic rim protectors should ensure he has another high-scoring game.
