The Orlando Magic will take on the Memphis Grizzlies in an NBA preseason encounter at the FedEx Forum Arena on Monday, October 3.
The Orlando Magic will start off their NBA preseason game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday at the FedEx Forum Arena. Their opponents for the game, the Grizzlies started off their campaign with a stellar 107-102 win against the Milwaukee Bucks. They will be looking to carry that momentum into this fixture at home and continue their impressive preseason form.
David Roddy led the way for the Western Conference side with 18 points on 41.7% shooting from the field. The rookie’s performance was well supported by Kenneth Lofton Jr., who added 17 points and 5 rebounds in just 24 minutes of action. Coach Taylor Jenkins decided to rest Ja Morant for the first preseason game. The Grizzlies were one of the best teams in the league last season. Morant was one of the major reasons behind the same. His athleticism and confidence to take on bigs helped the team massively. However, his minutes in the preseason are not going to be a lot as the team cannot afford to lose him to injury. They have previously proven that they can win even without him on the roster. Besides they have a talented bunch of youngsters, who will be looking to lead their team to success in the preseason.
Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have a lot to look forward to coming into the preseason. The team drafted Paolo Banchero, who looked stunning in the Summer League. He averaged 20 PPG and seemed to build a great rapport with his other teammates. Another Magic player who was impressive over the summer was Franz Wagner. The German was scintillating in the EuroBasket tournament and was a vital cog in the team’s journey to get to the third place. With both of them at the helm, the Magic could surprise teams in the East.
