The Orlando Magic and Oklahoma City Thunder meet head-to-head in Summer League action on Monday night. Orlando enters with momentum on its side, winning each of its first two games. Rookie Paolo Banchero's big performance (23 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists) guided the Magic to a double-overtime victory against the Sacramento Kings on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma City is searching for its first win after failing to beat the Houston Rockets on Saturday 90-88. The Thunder saw six players finish with double-digits points and were led by rookie Jalin Williams (15 points, 5 rebounds). The team shot only 38.3% from the floor, though.

Magic vs Thunder Prediction & Pick

These are two rosters filled with highly talented players looking to make their mark on the NBA right away. Orlando has gotten by on its defense so far, forcing 31 turnovers in two games and holding their opponent to under 42% shooting. They meet a hungry Oklahoma City team on Monday, though.

First-rounder Chet Holmgren and second-year pro Tre Mann combined to shoot 4-for-23 in their first game together. That was the main reason why the Thunder couldn't grab the win. Assuming those two can put together any kind of improved performance, OKC has a shot to pull off an upset.

I'll take a chance on the Thunder to win what should be an intense game (-104).
