The Orlando Magic opened their season with two double-digit victories at home. Their second week doubles the amount of games and raises the stakes by staging three of the four away from Amway Center.

OPP will do weekly schedule posts like this one throughout the year so you can plan accordingly for Magic games. Good news for this year: Fox Sports Florida will serve as the Magic's only local television broadcast partner, meaning you won't have to double-check TV listings on a nightly basis.

All times listed are Eastern.

Tuesday: Magic at Chicago Bulls, 8 PM, Fox Sports Florida

The Bulls are in an odd situation, as franchise player Derrick Rose will miss the balance of the season as he recovers from a knee injury he suffered in the playoffs. Nonetheless, they've fared reasonably well without him, winning twice in three tries. Balance is the name of the game offensively, as seven players average between eight and 15 points. Tom Thibodeau has his squad defending as well as ever.

Wednesday: Magic at Minnesota Timberwolves, 8 PM, Fox Sports Florida

The Wolves are without Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio, their franchise cornerstones, and it certainly showed in Sunday's blowout loss against the Toronto Raptors. Minny committed 24 turnovers for 32 Toronto points.

Friday: Magic vs. Brooklyn Nets, 7 PM, Fox Sports Florida

The Nets made a huge splash in their move from Newark to Brooklyn by acquiring All-Star shooting guard Joe Johnson for pennies on the dollar and then re-signing All-Star point guard Deron Williams.

Sunday: Magic at Nets, 3 PM, Fox Sports Florida

The Magic say hello to Brooklyn for the first time. This Sunday matinée would certainly have had much more juice to it if the Nets had managed to pry Dwight Howard from Orlando, but the Magic sent the perennial All-Star to the Los Angeles Lakers instead.
