The Magic look to improve to 3-0 in the preseason

NBA: Orlando Magic at Atlanta Hawks Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Who: Orlando Magic (2-0) at Atlanta Hawks (0-1)

When: Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.

Where: State Farm Arena - Atlanta, Georgia

TV: Fox Sports Florida

Storyline: Don’t want to put too much stock into the preseason, but with two convincing wins, and with the encouraging play of Aaron Gordon, Mo Bamba and Jonathan Isaac, and with the steady progress of Markelle Fultz, there is plenty to be excited about with the Magic. The focus on Wednesday will be on the Magic’s transition defense and how they go about slowing Trae Young and the up-tempo Hawks. With Evan Fournier sitting out for rest, and with Wes Iwundu out with a sore knee, Steve Clifford opted to go with MCW instead of Markelle Fultz to play alongside DJ Augustin in the starting lineup.

PROJECTED STARTERS:

Orlando: Nikola Vucevic, Jonathan Isaac, Aaron Gordon, Michael Carter-Williams, D.J. Augustin

Atlanta: Damian Jones, John Collins, De’Andre Hunter, DeAndre Bembry, Trae Young
