If you’re an out-of-town Magic fan or haven’t been able to make it out to either of the Magic’s home preseason games, you can watch the team tonight against the Bulls on NBATV at 8 p.m. It’s the first televised preseason game of the year. It’s a good one to watch because, being that it’s the third-to-last game of the preseason, the team’s top players will have their minutes increased and tonight’s squad will look a lot like the team we’ll see in the regular season. Here’s the scoop on tonight’s starting lineup from Tania Ganguli. Rashard Lewis won’t start the rest of the preseason.
Jameer Nelson, Vince Carter, Dwight Howard, Matt Barnes and Ryan Anderson will start tonight as the Magic take on the Bulls at 8 p.m. Eastern. This is definitely a lineup you might see during the first 10 games. Coach Stan Van Gundy said he assumes (but isn’t 100% positive on this) he’ll play the same group with Brandon Bass at power forward instead of Ryan Anderson Wednesday night against Indiana.
