1) Victor Oladipo did indeed shock Anfernee Hardaway in the first round of the Orlando Sentinel's Magic Bracket Buster tournament to figure out the best Magic player of all time. Now we are on to the second round.
2) A few more rebounds can be the difference between making and missing the Playoffs, as the Mavericks painfully learned last year when they finished in the bottom three of rebounding margin, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning-News writes.
3) Kyle O'Quinn's work at power forward this preseason is showing the second-year center that sometimes less is more, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
4) Brandan Wright is nursing a shoulder injury, a left shoulder fracture, but the 7-foot center is just happy that it is not related to a previous shoulder injury, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning-News writes.
5) Cleaning up fouls and turnovers will be one of the major fixes for the Magic entering their third preseason game, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel writes.
