On a night where 22 teams are in action—four of which (not named the Sixers or Magic) are on ESPN in back-to-back contests—Philadelphia and Orlando will stake their claim as the most interesting game of the night.
With Jimmy Butler set to make his debut with the 76ers, all eyes will be locked into this one, which tips off at 7:00 p.m. ET.
Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Jerryd Bayless are out; Jimmy Butler is in.
On Tuesday, the Sixers will begin Step 1 of their official championship pursuit. The Process—the aptly named rebuild and talkathon engineered by former general manager Sam Hinkie—is over, and The Pursuit can begin.
Against Orlando, the thing to watch will be how Butler interacts with star players Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, not to mention role players such as JJ Redick and Markelle Fultz.
Butler, in theory, will be able to help Philly fix its fourth-quarter woes and can be a scorer either with the ball in his hands or coming off of Simmons’ lethal drive-and-kick abilities.
In practice, however, context is key. Butler isn’t an easy guy to play with. He’s not an easy guy to share a locker room with and he’s certainly not someone everyone is willing to go to war for. Just ask his former teammates in both Chicago and Minnesota.
This, however, with LeBron out West, feels like Butler’s best shot at a title he’s had in his career.
Wednesday night is just the beginning, but it’s an important first step in The Pursuit.
Orlando needs to focus in this one. It can’t let the media hype, in-arena fan fare or any other extra storylines get in the way of the fact that despite all the hoopla, this is still just hoops.
The Magic need to do whatever they can to stay in front of Simmons on those drives and not leave shooters like Butler open in the corners.
If the Magic can make Butler even more uncomfortable than he’ll already be in a new system with new teammates, they stand a real shot at upsetting the road team.
Homecourt advantage always helps, but in this case, the crowd will likely have an anxious energy about witnessing Butler in a Sixers uniform before anyone else, which should eliminate a bit of that help Orlando might otherwise expect.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
The Magic need to match Philadelphia’s energy. If they can do that, they’ll be in good shape here.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Orlando ATS
Although we can’t pick Orlando to win straight up at this time, the contest should be closer than the line indicates. The Sixers will have plenty of kinks to workout, but they’ll squeak out a win straight up on talent alone, even if they take the L ATS.
