The Lakers take on the Orlando Magic tonight on the second night of a back-to-back for LA. The Lakers fell to the Kings in a tough overtime loss last night, and will get the chance to bounce back straight away against a team that has yet to lose. Jarred Vanderbilt and Jalen Hood-Schifino remain out, as does Rui Hachimura with an eye contusion. LeBron James and Cam Reddish are both probable.
It feels like déjà vu from last season for the Lakers in regards to their three-point shooting. They have started off the season as one of the worst shooting teams in the league, albeit in only 3 games. They need to hope that this is a small blip and not a trend that will continue throughout the season. If it is the latter they will struggle tremendously offensively.
Reaves had a career year last year, which saw him rewarded with a new contract in free agency and playing time in the FIBA World Cup. However, to open up the season Reaves has struggled to get going offensively, shooting only 30% from the field and 25% from three. The averages will eventually improve for Reaves but it Is important he has a big game soon so he can really get his season started. Tip-off is at 10:30ET as the Lakers look to bounce back on their home floor.
