Fans and national media reacted mercilessly to the draft-night trade between the Orlando Magic and the Oklahoma City Thunder that sent Serge Ibaka to the Magic for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and the draft rights to Domantas Sabonis.

For their 2015-16 season to be a success, the Orlando Magic need more wins like their win Saturday night over the Philadelphia 76ers.
PHILADELPHIA — A young rebuilding team's growth often is measured by how it performs against top-flight opponents. That explains why the Orlando Magic derived so much confidence from their home victory Friday night over the previously undefeated Toronto Raptors. It was a big win, no question.

The Orlando Magic will need Elfrid Payton to be at his best defensively against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Russell Westbrook.
It would be too simplistic to paint tonight’s Orlando Magic-Oklahoma City Thunder game as a one-on-one matchup between the teams’ starting point guards, Elfrid Payton and Russell Westbrook. In basketball, all five defenders are interconnected. So when a Thunder player sets a high ball screen for Westbrook tonight, for example, Payton will depend on his teammates to be in their correct positions.

The Orlando Magic have known for months that the beginning of their regular season will be brutal. After they open their season on Oct. 28 against the Washington Wizards, the Magic will play the Oklahoma City Thunder, New Orleans Pelicans, Houston Rockets and Toronto Raptors.

Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton have become good friends because their personalities mesh well and because they share similar traits and backgrounds.
NEW YORK — In late October, Victor Oladipo suffered the most painful injury of his basketball career. He fractured multiple bones in his face when a teammate accidentally struck him with an elbow during a practice.

The Magic played an instant classic Friday night. But that instant classic led to instant heartbreak -- a double-overtime loss to the Thunder.
On a night his team suffered a crushing double-overtime defeat, perhaps the moment that sticks out most to Orlando Magic coach Scott Skiles is of his players celebrating.
