Friday, October 27th, marks the start of the 2023–24 NBA campaign. The Orlando Magic and Portland Trail Blazers will play a cross-conference game at Portland, Oregon’s Moda Center.
In their home debut on Wednesday, the Magic easily defeated the Houston Rockets, winning 116-86. The club will now go to the West Coast and open its journey with an encounter with the revamped Blazers. The Magic have some gifted players who are prepared to contribute right away once they’ve adjusted to life in the NBA after revamping their squad over the course of a few years. The Magic will have a variety of key scorers to grab the basketball throughout the course of the year, and Cole Anthony shone for them in their campaign opening off the bench. Orlando wants to make a statement this season rather than merely waiting around. A further move in that way would be a road victory on the West Coast. Kevon Harris will be unavailable for this game because he is still dealing with an injury.
After Damian Lillard was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks just before the start of the season, the Blazers begin a new chapter in their history with Scoot Henderson taking the lead at the point guard position. The Blazers are looking for their first victory after losing to the Los Angeles Clippers 123-111 in their campaign opening on Wednesday, but had some potential in their youthful, redesigned lineup. Scoot Henderson, the third overall choice in the 2023 NBA Draft, made his court debut with 36 minutes, 11 points, 4 assists, and 4 turnovers. The Trail Blazers will turn to Deandre Ayton and Scoot Henderson as their franchise’s future leaders now that Damian Lillard has moved on. This club doesn’t have too high of standards, therefore anticipated for them to surpass some expectations this season. Ish Wainright will be unavailable for this contest due to injury, while Anfernee Simons is doubtful.
