Can the Thunder finally find their groove? And can the Magic keep winning without Dwight Howard down low? Here's a preview of the NBA's three Tuesday night games.
The 2012-13 NBA season is officially one week old on Tuesday. There have been a couple of surprises and a few disappointments in the early going, but it's imperative to remember players are still getting into a rhythm with their new teammates.
There are only three games set for Tuesday, Nov. 6.
At 8 p.m. ET, the undefeated Orlando Magic travel to Chicago to take on the Chicago Bulls. These two teams have combined to go 4-1 in the early going, despite the absences of Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard.
Also at 8 p.m. ET is the Oklahoma City Thunder welcoming in the Toronto Raptors. The Thunder have just one win so far and have looked a bit lost without James Harden, who was dealt to the Rockets last week.
The Denver Nuggets and Detroit Pistons will search for their first wins at 9 p.m. ET at the Pepsi Center. Many felt the Nuggets could be a dark horse contender in the Western Conference this season. As for the Pistons, it appears another year in the lottery is likely in order. Look for a lot of points to be scored in this one.
