Matchup to Watch
Al Jefferson vs. Nikola Vucevic: Vucevic is thick and strong enough that he’s succeeded in the past keeping Jefferson from getting to his preferred spots in the low post. He’s also a skilled scorer.
▪ Orlando’s Jacque Vaughn became a quick coaching casualty this season, being fired around the All-Star break.
▪ The Magic’s Victor Oladipo and rookie Elfrid Payton have potential to be a terrific defensive backcourt over the next few seasons.
▪ The Magic won both games in this series in Charlotte this season.
▪ Home court hasn’t been much of an advantage in Orlando this season; the Magic is 9-19 this season at Amway Center.
