THE TEAM NEWS

ORLANDO MAGIC

  • The Magic have won just two of six games to start the season, and they have followed a marked path thus far – winning one, and then losing the subsequent two. As a result, they are currently riding a two-game losing streak. Their last game ended on a 91-87 loss to the Denver Nuggets.
  • Point guard Michael Carter-Williams has been listed as questionable due to a hip problem, although he is not expected to start even if he is available. Melvin Frazier has the same designation, but due to a shoulder injury.
  • One player to watch in Orlando should be point guard Markelle Fultz. The third-year point guard was recently promoted to the starting five in the previous contest, and he has averaged 9.7 points with 3.3 rebounds in the regular season.

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER

  • Similar to the Magic, the Thunder also own a 2-4 record this season. They recently secured their second win with a 115-104 against the New Orleans Pelicans.
  • Defensive specialist Andre Roberson has been ruled out for Tuesday’s match, although he is expected to make his season debut sooner than later, while Nerlens Noel has been listed as probable for Tuesday’s match, and he has a good chance of playing. Steven Adams is questionable, and might not play due to a lingering knee problem.
  • Second-year point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been the Thunder’s best player this season. Over his first six games, the former LA Clippers star holds averages of 21.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists per contest.

THE PREDICTION

Both Orlando and Oklahoma City enter this game with a 2-4 record, although the Thunder are coming off a win while Orlando are riding a two-game losing streak. Oklahoma City are also at home, where they are 2-2 thus far, while the Magic are winless in their first two away contests. Oklahoma City should be favourites here.
