I started writing this this morning but decided to hold off until a Spurs off-day to post… but Devin Vassell had to go and have himself a game.

David Baumann @DavidBaumannORL
Late catch-up on the @Orlando Magic opener. I see they lost all four Qs. Couldn’t hit shots. Magic reserves got completely outplayed by the Spurs bench. Suggs debut: bad (but he’ll be fine). Wagner’s debut: not bad. Mo Bamba went 18p,4r,4a,4b (+1, +/-) as a starter. Anything else? – 1:05 AM

Nice win for the #Spurs but a home opening crowd of only 16,697 is likely a harbinger of things to come. I’d suspect they will be an awful road draw too. Pity cuz it’ll be fun to watch the young-uns mature. – 12:10 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I think I underestimated, somehow, just how bad the Magic, Rockets and Thunder are going to be.
Please note: This doesn’t mean they won’t be fun to watch. And I think they are all doing the right things at the moment. But they are going to lose a lot of games this year. – 12:10 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I realize the Spurs blew out the Magic (I’ll watch it tomorrow), but Thad Young was a DNP-CD? Is he really not going to play at all? – 12:07 AM
Jock Landale @JockLandale
Gotta appreciate the milestones. Moment to remember! First official minutes as an NBA player 🤙🏻 – 12:04 AM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Another good thing about tonight was that it allowed Pop to get Tre Jones and Jock Landale some minutes in their return from injuries so “they can start to feel comfortable because I’m sure that we will be using them as the year goes on.” – 11:51 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
I didn’t realize Jakob Poeltl was 3 assists shy of a triple double.
Poeltl finished with 12 points, 13 boards, and 7 assists
No wonder @bouncepassos kept mentioning it – 11:50 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
50% of the Magic turnovers were from Spurs steals.
Murray (4) and Vassell (2) combined for 6 of the 8 steals for the team. – 11:46 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Magic shot 1/12 from mid-range against the Spurs’ defense.
SA was very solid contesting a lot of Orlando’s looks from that area. – 11:44 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs held the Magic below 30 in all 4 quarters.
SA held ORL below 25 in 2 quarters.
The Spurs open the season holding their opponent below 100 overall. – 11:42 PM

Josh Primo on his first official NBA game: “It feels great. I felt comfortable going in.”
He said his teammates have been very supportive. – 11:37 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs open the season with a 32 assist night.
SA assisted on 65% of their made shots. – 11:34 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs outscored the Magic 26-6 in fast break points. – 11:31 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“They’re going to be chasing him hard because of that jump shot,” said Jakob Poeltl of the attention Doug McDermott draws from the defense. – 11:28 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Derrick White said the Spurs have more defense first players on the roster and that allows them to guard opponents different ways.
They don’t want opponents to think they’ll guard them just one way throughout a game. – 11:23 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Derrick White on 7 Spurs scoring in double figures: “Any night, it can be somebody different.” – 11:19 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs won every area of the floor except the free throw line tonight.

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Jamahl Mosley said Gary Harris’ hamstring tightened up in warmups. Mosley would not speculate about the length of time, if any, that Harris will miss, adding that the medical team will evaluate the situation. – 11:18 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Per @Abrjsdad, Coach Mosley said the Spurs’ pace made it difficult for the Magic to get into their halfcourt sets on offense tonight. – 11:15 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
It seemed like a perfect template for what the Spurs want to do this season, but Pop saw plenty of room for improvement:
“We’ll just try to do better at both ends of the court…We just stick with it and try to improve every time we step on the court. Trite but true.” – 11:14 PM

“That’s our goal,” said Devin Vassell of the team wanting to bring the same energy level to every game this season. – 11:08 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“Definitely,” said Devin Vassell of getting help from Chip Engelland on his 3-point shot this offseason. – 11:07 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Devin Vassell: “That’s the energy we want to have.”
Devin said having 7 players scoring in double figures is what the team wants, not just the same leading scorer every night. – 11:05 PM
Michael De Leon @mdeleon
7 Spurs finish in double digits, led by @Devin Vassell‘s 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field and 3-of-4 from beyond the arch – 11:03 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“He’ll stay ready,” said Coach Pop of Thad Young not playing. “Everybody doesn’t play,” said Pop. – 11:03 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Pop says the Spurs went to full court press early because “I thought we were soft” to start. He said that helped the team get more physical for the rest of the game. – 11:01 PM
Michael De Leon @mdeleon
Only one Spurs player finishes with over 30 minutes, Murray with 30:53 – 11:00 PM
Michael De Leon @mdeleon
Thaddeus Young not getting a single minute even in garbage time has to mean something impending, right? – 10:59 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs open the season 1-0 with a 26 point win over the Magic.
7 Spurs players score in double figures on opening night – 10:56 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Final in San Antonio: Spurs 123, Magic 97. The Magic were undone by a lot, especially by turnovers and poor defensive rebounding. Mo Bamba finished with 18 points, four rebounds, four assists and four blocks. A tough debut for Jalen Suggs, who had 10 points on 3-of-14 shooting. – 10:55 PM
Matthew Tynan @Matthew_Tynan
Well, impressive start to the season, Spurs. – 10:54 PM

Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Devin Vassell is everywhere. Pop has him guarding multiple players.
He’s got 19 points now to lead SA – 10:36 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs are winning mid-range by 12 points, the paint by 10 points, and the 3PT line by 6 points.
Tied with the Magic at the FT line – 10:32 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
The Magic also might be the least watchable team this year even with all of these prospects. The offense is rough. Not a lot of creativity. Lot of simple stuff, likely due to the sheer number of young guys. Real clogged toilet shit. – 10:31 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Devin Vassell now leads the team in scoring with 17 points. Devin just drilled his 3rd three.
SA by 28 on opening night – 10:31 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
I deleted the “25 point lead” stat from my database before the game.
The Spurs just reached that in the opening game of the season. – 10:28 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA
Things have unraveled for the Magic in the second half as they trail 94-71 heading into the fourth quarter. The turnovers, defense and rebounding have all been problem areas for Orlando. – 10:27 PM
Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
the Magic have 13 assists against 14 turnovers and have allowed the Spurs to rebound one-third of their misses. That is not a winning formula – 10:26 PM

White 16 pts
Keldon 15 pts
Devin 14 pts
Murray 13 pts
McDermott 12 pts
Poeltl 12 pts
Lonnie 10 pts
Another good defensive quarter for SA, holding ORL to 22 – 10:25 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
The 10-0 run the Spurs pulled off in the final 1:11 of the third quarter was, to use a very technical basketball term, “something else.”
Spurs lead Magic 94-71 headed to fourth. – 10:25 PM
Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
Devin Vassell drains a transition three at the third-quarter buzzer to put the Spurs up 23. The Magic still have a long way to go. – 10:25 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
With seven players scoring between 10 and 16 points, it’s a perfect template for the spread-the-wealth scoring the Spurs can deliver. – 10:25 PM
Mark Deeks @MarkDeeksNBA
“Up 20. Domination. Get used to a lot of nights like this.” – Spurs announcers, just now, dressing for the job they want. – 10:24 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Opener for Jalen Suggs is definitely a lesson so far. Really getting pushed around. Hasn’t adjusted to the length at the rim yet. Going to be a project for him. – 10:24 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs have led by 20 points in 1/1 games this season – 10:23 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
With no go-to player on the team, 7b Spurs players have scored in double figures – 10:23 PM

Devin Vassell steal and dunk gives the Spurs another new large lead +18 points – 10:22 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
New largest lead for the Spurs: +16 points – 10:21 PM
Mike Finger @mikefinger
The new kinder, gentler, totally at ease, feeling-no-pressure Pop just spent damn near the entirety of a timeout reaming the motherbleeping bleepity bleep out of poor Drew Eubanks. – 10:18 PM

15 points for Keldon Johnson, with 8 of those points in the paint after the last layup

Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Derrick White becomes the 4th Spurs player to score in double figures.
11 points for White, 6 from outside – 9:59 PM
Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic
as we all suspected would be the case, the Magic’s assist leader at halftime is Mo Bamba (3) – 9:55 PM
Dan Savage @Dan_Savage
After leading the @NBA in blocks this preseason with 3.8 rejections per game, @TheRealMoBamba has 3 in the first half of the @Orlando Magic‘s season opener against the @Spurs. – 9:52 PM

Turns out Mo Bamba can still block shots in the regular season after the big preseason.
In the first half against the Spurs, he had three blocks, nine points, one board, three dimes, one steal and two 3-pointers in 12 minutes. – 9:43 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Spurs lead 61-49 at the break. They’re living up to Pop’s “Doing It Together” mantra, with 8 players with at least 2 points and DJ, KJ and McD all in double figures. – 9:43 PM

turnovers have been a real problem for the Magic. Not cohesive, as you’d expect from a young team with a lot of players in new/expanded roles – 9:17 PM

Drew Eubanks holds his spot as the backup 5 on the team. – 9:00 PM
Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Mo Bamba’s first six or seven minutes were pretty much the best he’s played as a member of the Magic in a regular-season game. His motor showed significant improvement, especially in challenging almost every Spurs shot attempt. – 8:58 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Spurs weather Magic’s fast shooting start and forge a 17-17 tie with a 7-0 run that included Jakob’s second tap in following a teammates’ bothced drive. – 8:57 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
The Spurs made an emphasis this preseason on gambling on defense, trying to force turnovers, and using that to fuel transition offense.
We’re seeing some of that since the last timeout. Murray’s steal —-> layup ties the score at 17. – 8:57 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Since the trap, the Spurs have started to have multiple good defensive possessions. ORL taking tough shots and turning the ball over.
SA ties ORL at 17 all – 8:56 PM

Devin Vassell and Lonnie Walker IV will be the first two subs off the bench – 8:55 PM

Mo Bamba looks AWESOME for Orlando right now. He’s been the best player on the court between Orlando and San Antonio through the first five minutes of this game. Contesting at rim. A 3. Finish at the rim out of a post-up. Getting on the floor for contested balls. – 8:53 PM

for me, one of the most important tasks for the Magic this season is defining roles. In their last rebuild, Oladipo/Harris/Vučević/Gordon were all 1A, and putting Payton in the starting group (per Jake Fischer’s book) negatively affected chemistry – 8:28 PM
