The Orlando Magic are a young team that’s eager to prove themselves and despite being short on talent overall, they have a bit of a pep in their step. The San Antonio Spurs aren’t good, their coach already put them on blast, and they were downright horrible in their first preseason game. Tough to find the confidence for the Spurs at the moment. Give me the Magic and the small number.
