The San Antonio Spurs (12-3) are traveling to the Amway Center to go head-to-head with the Orlando Magic tonight (5-8).
The Spurs are on a four game winning streak and coming off tough back to back wins against Toronto in a double overtime thriller and a dominating performance against the winless Washington Wizards. I had the opportunity to talk to Orlando Magic Daily's Philip Rossman-Reich to help get some insight on what we can expect to see from this new look Magic team.
Philip discuss how the Magic are adjusting without Dwight Howard, the sixth man matchup, and more.Jose: With Orlando at 5-8, how has the team adjusted without Dwight Howard at the center position?
Philip: The adjustment at the center position is still very much a work in progress. Nikola Vucevic has some talent and has some skill but he has not quite gotten to the point where he can consistently use it. Against Boston on Sunday, he sat out most of the second half and all of the tense moments at the end. Orlando is still figuring out what it has in the second-year center. The Magic are not running their offense through the post anymore, to say the least. That has means the Magic are taking much fewer 3-pointers and are struggling to get open 3-pointers. This is a team that has to work incredibly hard offensively to get good looks in the half court. It certainly is a brand new team.Jose: What Magic player has shown the most improvement so far this season?
