New, comments

Coming off a dominant performance against the Spurs, the Magic travel to Detroit

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Orlando Magic Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Who: Orlando Magic (1-0) at Detroit Pistons (0-0)

When: Monday at 7 p.m.

Where: Little Caesars Arena - Detroit, Michigan

TV: Fox Sports Florida

Storyline: The Magic are coming off a preseason opener in which Markelle Fultz made his debut, Mo Bamba shined, and Orlando dominated in a 125-89 victory over the Spurs. After 19 players got on the court during that win, Steve Clifford said he will play fewer on Monday. Perhaps we’ll see a glimpse of that Jonathan Isaac, Al-Farouq Aminu, Aaron Gordon frontcourt lineup tonight. Best part of it all is that we can actually watch this game on our televisions instead of depending on radio or illegal streams like last game.

PROJECTED STARTERS:

Orlando: Nikola Vucevic, Jonathan Isaac, Aaron Gordon, Evan Fournier, D.J. Augustin

Detroit: Andre Drummond, Blake Griffin, Tony Snell, Bruce Brown, Reggie Jackson
