Locked On Magic 10.04.16: The Orlando Magic lose, but it's OK (for now)
The Orlando Magic lose to the Memphis Grizzlies in the first preseason game of the year. That is not a big deal though. The Magic played well (I think) and began building on their foundations (2:35). Part of that foundation is rim protection and I explain why that is going to be critical to the Magic's success on defense (8:15). And also why everyone is loving Bismack Biyombo so far (14:15).
The Orlando Magic open their regular season against the Cleveland Cavaliers. It should be a game that tests their focus and preparation to their style of play. The team left plenty of questions throughout the preseason that it will have to answer.
