Orlando Magic vs Detroit Pistons game time, TV schedule and more

Coming off a season opening loss to their in-state Miami Heat, the Orlando Magic travel to Detroit to take on the Stan Van Gundy led Pistons, as part of the front in of a back-to-back.

Game time is set for 7:30 PM Eastern time at the Palace at Auburn Hills. The game can be seen on FoxSports Florida, and heard on ESPN580 Orlando.

After missing Bismack Biyombo due to a one game suspension, the Magic will get their defensive stalwart back in Detroit. With Biyombo returning, the Magic's second unit will once again be whole, giving them a unit that performed will together during the preseason, and could give them a needed lift if the starters were to struggle.

The Magic struggled throughout stretches on both ends on Wednesday night, so beginning to find some consistency will be important if they want to keep things from going from bad to worse early on.
