Just hours after learning that Victor Oladipo will miss an indefinite period of time due to a facial injury, the Orlando Magic take the floor Friday for their preseason finale against the Dallas Mavericks.
Tipoff between Orlando and Dallas is set for 7:00 PM Eastern. ESPN 580 AM will offer radio coverage of the game, which is not available on television.
Orlando's last time out: Despite some solid defense, the Magic slipped Wednesday at Amway Center, falling to the Houston Rockets by a 90-89 final. Troy Daniels and Isaiah Canaan scored 14 apiece off Houston's bench to lead all players, while Nikola Vucevic tallied 12 points and six boards for the Magic.
Dallas' last time out: The Mavs dipped below the .500 mark with their 88-85 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night as coach Rick Carlisle rested most of his regulars, including Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis. Second-year pro Gal Mekel shot 7-of-13 for 17 points with eight assists for Dallas, which finished the game shooting below 40 percent.
