The Orlando Magic preseason is here and that means we are inching closer to the start of the regular season. In addition, the Magic have started its preseason on a very impressive note, with a victory at San Antonio, the final score being: 125 – 89, the Magic.
If one were to look at the overall stats for the Magic, you’ll see many positives such as: sophomore player, Mo Bamba, contributing the most points, 18-points overall; Bamba also ending the game with seven rebounds, the most out of both teams; Aaron Gordon and Terrence Ross contributing 14 points each; and Markelle Futlz playing 17 minutes, while also scoring six points and getting two rebounds.
While preseason games shouldn’t be used as an indicator for how teams will perform for the regular season, as well as how this is only the first preseason game, the results of the Magic v. Spurs, should give fans hope for another exciting season. One that could end with the team making it into the playoffs again, and maybe even Fultz winning the category for Most Improved Player.
Fultz and the off-season
It could be speculated that during the summer break, all the short clips from social media of Fultz shooting around wasn’t just to build hype and tease the fan-base, but to offer an inside look into how Fultz may be more prepared than many anticipated. Personally, I expected Fultz to be ready closer to the month of December; however, to see him progressed by leaps and bounds does make me very excited for the upcoming season.
The next game for the Magic will be against the Pistons, Monday 7 p.m. EST.
