Doesn't look like Maurice Harkless or Andrew Nicholson will play in Orlando's game tonight. They're gonna lose by 15-plus.
Anthony Davis: 26 points, 17 rebounds and nine blocks. You read that correctly. Nine blocks.
Consider this: The Magic trail 87-72, yet the Pelicans still are just 11 of 25 from the free-throw line.
End of the third quarter. Three consecutive 3s by Ryan Anderson has given the Pels a 78-64 lead over the Magic.
Noteworthy from Magic/Pelicans: near the end of the third quarter, Maurice Harkless has a DNP-CD.
Payton is up to 7 assists and Vucevic is up to 16 rebounds.
The Pelicans have 20 second-chance points and lead the Magic 48-41 at halftime.
Magic: 10 turnovers so far. Still 1:31 to go before halftime.
The Pelicans have 14 second-chance points. It seems like a lot more. NO leads 40-38.
Vucevic has had a monster start, with 10 points and 7 rebounds in 9 minutes. But he also has 2 fouls.
Jacque Vaughn is exhorting his team to push the ball upcourt after every defensive rebound.
Kyle O'Quinn picks up his third foul with 5:17 to go in the first quarter.
Vucevic has begun the game with 8 points and 5 rebounds. Payton has 3 assists. Magic lead 15-14 with 5:24 to go in the 1st.
Elfrid Payton now has had two shots blocked.
The Magic's first points of the season are by Nik Vucevic on a 19-foot bank shot off the glass.
Elfrid Payton received some decent applause from a section in the lower bowl during Magic introductions.

The Magic last played the Pels on Jan. 26. Orlando's starters that night: JNelson, VOladipo, AAfflalo, THarris & GDavis.
Elfrid P will make his debut in his hometown. "It's just like any other game. Just go out there & play as hard as I ... can."
Channing Frye isn't dismissing the possibility he'll play tonight. Still, I think it's unlikely.

"Wait, I had to let it marinate..."
The Magic are not saying it definitively, but I'd be very surprised if Channing Frye (knee) plays tomorrow night.

Instead, adult me just wonders how in the world he ended up singing at a World Series game in San Francisco in the first place.
Middle school me would have been devastated to see Aaron Lewis mess up the words to the Star Spangled Banner last night.
