MEMPHIS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Taylor Jenkins (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: F/C Jaren Jackson Jr. (13.8 ppg), G Ja Morant (rookie), C Jonas Valanciunas (15.6), G/F Dillon Brooks (7.5), F Jae Crowder (11.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Mike Conley, G Jevon Carter, G Delon Wright.
KEY ADDITIONS: Morant, G Grayson Allen, F Brandon Clarke, Crowder, G Marko Guduric, F Solomon Hill, G Tyus Jones, G/F Jon Konchar, G De'Anthony Melton, C Miles Plumlee.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Jackson is fully recovered from the bruised right quadriceps muscle that limited his rookie season to 58 games, and the No. 4 pick overall in 2018 has even grown a little bit. Morant played his way into the No. 2 draft pick overall in June, and now the 6-3 guard will get to showcase his speed, passing skills and court vision surrounded by players closer to his talent level than he did in college at Murray State. Valanciunas earned an extension from Memphis and now must prove he can keep producing double-doubles regularly.
OUTLOOK: Marc Gasol and Conley both are gone, and it's up to Jackson and Morant to lead this rebuilding process for Memphis after the Grizzlies revamped the roster as much as possible in one offseason. This season may not be pretty at times, but at least the Grizzlies have hope for the future based on a duo they hope will become big stars. The franchise just may have to wait a couple seasons or more for a return to the postseason.
ORLANDO: LAST SEASON: 42-40, lost 4-1 in first round to Toronto
COACH: Steve Clifford (second season with Magic; seventh season overall, 238-254).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Evan Fournier (15.1 ppg), G D.J. Augustin (11.7), F Aaron Gordon (16.0), F Jonathan Isaac (9.6), C Nikola Vucevic (20.8).
KEY ADDITIONS: F Al-Farouq Aminu, G Markelle Fultz (acquired in February from Philadelphia but didn't play).
PLAYERS TO WATCH: There isn't a lot of mystery to the Magic entering this season, since they bring back basically the same team and will be adding a former No. 1 overall pick in Fultz who has worked for months to fix his shoulder and shooting issues. Vucevic is coming off a season where he set career-bests in points, rebounds and assists per game. When Gordon scored big, the Magic were really good; they went 16-8 in the 24 games where Gordon reached the 20-point mark. Terrence Ross is basically a sixth starter for Orlando, needing only 26.5 minutes per game to average 15.1 points last season in an instant-offense role coming off the bench.
OUTLOOK: The Magic improved by 17 wins last season and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2012, doing all that without the burden of expectation. They won't have that same luxury this year, not after bringing back virtually every part of a team that didn't just get into the playoffs but did so by going 22-9 down the stretch of the regular season. Getting to the foul line more would be a major help, after the Magic ranked last in free throws made and free throws attempted last season. The biggest challenge for Clifford may be finding ways for his team to replicate the same get-into-the-playoffs hunger it had a year ago.
Magic host Grizzlies, look to halt losing skid

The Orlando Magic return home to Amway Center on Friday looking to end a four-game losing streak, squaring off with a Memphis Grizzlies bunch that just ended a skid of their own.

Orlando dropped its fourth straight on Wednesday in Dallas. The final minute of the 107-106 loss serves as a microcosm of the Magic's season, as missed shots and turnovers prevented them from taking a lead.

"He was sliding his feet," forward Aaron Gordon said to reporters about one of the two offensive fouls called against him in the final minute at Dallas. "I bumped him, stepped over, laid the ball in the basket. To me, that's an and-one 10 times out of 10."

Issues with officiating aside, the lock-down defense Orlando played in the final minutes, juxtaposed with its inability to score, has been a season-long issue thus far. The Magic's 99.8 points per game allowed on defense ranks second in the NBA, but at 95.1 points scored per outing, Orlando is the league's lowest-scoring team.

Orlando also shot a dismal 25 percent from behind the 3-point arc on Wednesday -- another facet vexing the Magic in a disappointing start to the season after they made the playoffs last spring. They are shooting just 26.6 percent from long range.

Terrence Ross, whose average of six 3-point attempts per game leads the Magic, is making just 19 percent of them. He missed Wednesday's contest with a knee injury and is considered day-to-day.

In contrast, Memphis found its outside touch on Wednesday in a 137-121 defeat of the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves. Guard Dillon Brooks knocked down five 3-pointers on his way to 31 points, pacing the Grizzlies to their highest single-game point total since 2007.

Brooks and rookie guard Ja Morant were electric in the final quarter, combining for 30 points in the final 12 minutes. Morant ranks among the NBA's top 10 in fourth-quarter scoring, and after Wednesday's 26-point effort, he paces Memphis with 20.4 points per game.

The young Grizzlies welcomed back second-year forward Jaren Jackson Jr. on Wednesday after he missed a game with a minor leg injury. He had little impact in the win, going scoreless on 0-of-5 shooting in 15 minutes.

"He got two early fouls. Sometimes that happens where it throws a guy out of rhythm," Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said of Jackson in his postgame press conference. "As he came back in, there were other guys at that point that carried the momentum for us. I rode with some guys that were playing better in the first half, and that carried through for us. Sometimes guys are going to have some struggles."

Rookie Brandon Clarke played well in place of Jackson, scoring 18 points off the bench. Jenkins' rotation between Jackson and Clarke against Orlando could be a pivotal point in that matchup.

Likewise, the Magic could benefit from increased contributions from Gordon, who started the season slowly, averaging just seven points through his first three games.

He has since come to life, producing 19.7 points per game in the Magic's past three, but he also has been foul-prone in that stretch. He incurred five fouls on Tuesday in Oklahoma City, and he fouled out of the Dallas loss.
