It will be a battle of two teams who have not lived up to their preseason expectations so far in this young season. The Magic (2-2) played poorly against the Bulls, shooting only 41% from the field, 33% from three point range, 68% from the free throw line, and committed 19 turnovers, while nearly blowing a 17 point third quarter lead. Philadelphia (2-3), is coming off an embarrassing 23 point loss to Miami Wednesday night, where they committed a whopping 26 turnovers.
The Magic will have their first look at Elton Brand as a member of the 76ers, who signed with them as a free agent in the off-season.
