Anthony Davis & Austin Rivers Set To Make NBA Debut Against Magic In Pre-Season Opener

The Hornets will begin the 2012-2013 pre-season as they will tip off against the Magic in a few hours. The game starts at 2:30pm ET and will be televised on NBA TV.

Eric Gordon will not play today as he is recovering from a sore knee, Austin Rivers is expected to start in his place. Rivers will start alongside  Anthony Davis, Al-Faruoq Aminu, Robin Lopez, and Grevis Vasquez.

The Orlando Magic will start Jameer Nelson, J.J. Reddick, Hedo Turkoglu, Glen Davis, and former Hornet Gustavo Ayon. Players who will not play for the Magic today include Aaron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Ish Smith, and Quentin Richardson.

This should be a pretty exciting game as there will be more than a few rookies making their NBA debuts in this game.

Again make sure you tune in to NBA TV at 2:30 ET.
