Matchup to Watch

Al Jefferson vs. Nikola Vucevic: Vucevic had some success defensively against Jefferson last season. The bulkier centers who can body up Jefferson tend to do better than the jumping jacks who bite on Jefferson’s shot fakes.

The Magic is the top 3-point team in the NBA this season, shooting 41.6 percent outside the arc.
