1) Each game has been a learning experience for rookie Maurice Harkless. Tuesday's game against the Lakers was a big one for him as he continues to gain confidence and gain the confidence of his coaches, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com writes.
2) Magic general manager Rob Hennigan and Thunder general manager Sam Presti share a unique bond as Presti has helped Hennigan get into the league and every step along the way to his job now as Magic general manager, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
3) Tonight presents the Magic's toughest defensive test as the Thunder have the most efficient offense in the league and the league's top scorer, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes. That leaves Maurice Harkless with the unenviable task of guard Kevin Durant.
4) Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman asks a very important question for any fan: What happens if your team is good enough to win it, but never does?
5) The Thunder announced they will play preseason games in Tulsa against the Pelicans and Wichita against the Bulls.
