has reported that the Orlando Magic was able to get their first preseason game victory over the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks struggled with shooting the ball last night, they only made 33 percent of their field goal attempts and went 29.3 percent from beyond the arc. Aaron Gordon's 17 points helped the Magic give the Dallas Mavericks their first preseason loss. Dirk Nowitzki, Nerlens Noel, Wesley Mathews, and Devin Harris did not suit up in last night's game.

Dennis Smith Jr. scores 13 points

Dennis Smith Jr. led the Dallas Mavericks against the Orlando Magic in scoring but yet he struggled with his shot.

Dennis contributed 13 points, three rebounds, one assist, and one steal. He shot the ball very poorly only making four of his 13 field goal attempts. Smith Jr. is looking like a really solid player despite only being a rookie. He will surely give the Dallas Mavericks a big boost on the offensive end this upcoming season.

Seth Curry struggles with his shots

Seth Curry had a game to forget last night against the Orlando Magic. He shot 28.6 percent from the field only making four of his 14 attempts and only made one of his seven three-point attempts. Seth only contributed nine points, one rebound, and two assists in last night's loss against the Magic. Seth Curry has to turn things around once the season begins because the Dallas Mavericks are going to rely heavily on his offensive skills for them to make the playoffs.

Aaron Gordon records a double-double

Aaron Gordon played an incredible game last night against the Dallas Mavericks. He contributed 17 points and 10 rebounds while shooting the ball at 50 percent from the field making six of his 12 shots. Aaron Gordon will have to step up big time once the season begins as the Orlando Magic have no big-time scorer on their roster.

Ever since the departure of Dwight Howard a couple of years ago, the Magic have been doing their best to rebuild and be relevant in the east again slowly.

Nikola Vucevic and Hezonja plays solid game

Nikola Vucevic came up big for the Orlando Magic last night against the Dallas Mavericks. He contributed 14 points, one rebound, one block, and one assist.

He made six of his 11 field goal attempts with 54.5 percent and making two of his three-point attempts. Mario Hezonja also played a solid game with 11 points, one rebound and one assist. He made four of his 10 field goal attempts but only made one of his five three-point shots.
