Who: Orlando Magic (1-0) vs. Denver Nuggets (0-0)

When: Sunday, July 7 at 6 p.m.

Where: Cox Pavillion - Las Vegas, Nevada


Storyline: The Magic, in their second Summer League game, will be without Mo Bamba, who will sit out for apparent load management reasons. Bamba scored 15 points in 15 minutes during the Magic’s victory over the Spurs on Friday, which was stopped after the third quarter due to the earthquake on the West Coast. Amile Jefferson will get the start in Bamba’s place. The Nuggets will make their Summer League debut, after their originally scheduled game on Friday. Tobias Harris’ younger brother, Tyler, is on the roster.
