The San Antonio Spurs will play in their fourth preseason game on Tuesday night. This comes against the Orlando Magic.
On Tuesday night, the San Antonio Spurs will return to the hardwood for their fourth preseason game of October 2017. This takes place at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX, with the Orlando Magic as their opponent.
The Spurs are 2-1 in the preseason, with their most recent win over the Denver Nuggets, 122-100. This was behind 21 points from LaMarcus Aldridge and Bryn Forbes’s 20-point outing. San Antonio itself shot 57 percent from 3-point range.
Rudy Gay saw his second game of action as a Spur. He played in 22 minutes and had 11 points on 4-for-9 shooting. This was increased from his 18 minutes in his preseason debut, which was his first game since rupturing his Achilles in January while playing for the Sacramento Kings.
Kawhi Leonard remains out for the preseason, as he rehabs a quad injury. Tony Parker is also out and will miss time in the regular season. It’s possible other players don’t participate in Tuesday’s game, as well, since Patty Mills and Pau Gasol were rested on Sunday.
The Magic feature plenty of young talent, including 2017 first-round pick Jonathan Isaac. He stands at 6-foot-10 and boasts athleticism and length. This will be a potential problem for the Spurs frontcourt, along with Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon.
Like the first three Spurs preseason games, Tuesday night’s matchup won’t be available online or on television. That means box scores, recaps, and Twitter will be used to follow the evening’s action. It’s the last time this will be the case, however, as the Spurs vs. Houston Rockets on Friday, Oct. 13, will be broadcast on national television.
Stay tuned for our recap of the Spurs vs. Magic. The game starts at 8:30 p.m. ET.
