Everything changed for the Orlando Magic on draft night in 2016.It was then the franchise shifted its direction, moving away from the methodical draft-based rebuild and into a win-now mode.The team traded away former second overall pick Victor Oladipo for Serge Ibaka. They continued their remodeling with a massive free agent spending spree that included signing in another rim-protecting center in Bismack Biyombo. All this with a new coach in Frank Vogel, hired after Scott Skiles sudden resignation.The Magic team that takes the Amway Center court Wednesday in the season opener against the visiting Miami Heat is going to be hardly recognizable to the team that finished in April. Orlando has seven new players and heightened expectations after a four-year playoff drought.Everybody is ready, Magic forward Aaron Gordon said. Offseason is great, but this is what we live for. This is what we live to do. Its so much fun. We know we can do something special and we are looking to seize that opportunity.The Magic remain one of the leagues biggest mysteries entering the season, but things have changed drastically in Miami too.The Heats championship dynasty is completely gone. Dwyane Wade surprisingly left for the Chicago Bulls after 13 years in Miami. LeBron James left two seasons ago for the Cleveland Cavaliers. And the Heat have not cleared Chris Bosh to play after continuing heart problems keep him on the sideline.Miami must rely on a multi-faceted versatile offensive attack and balanced scoring to succeed.A big strength of our roster is versatility, depth, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. And that we have multiple guys that can have nights, where its not one or two guys dominant. And thats a strength.It is certainly a different situation for Miami, which does not have the superstar players or the sure path to the postseason. They are relying more heavily on young players -- including Hassan Whiteside, whom the Heat signed to a fresh four-year, $98.4 million deal.The Heat have always been good about mining role players and will need their support more than ever to defy the odds and reach the playoffs. But they still have the steady hand of veteran point guard Goran Dragic running with Whiteside to help fill that void.As the teams battle changes and adjustments to new rosters and new teammates, the Magic and the Heat will be trying to feel comfortable in their new skins.Its going to be an 82-game process, Magic coach Frank Vogel said. Ideally, you hit the ground running. But you dont want to overreact if you dont. If things arent working early, youre really just learning about your team. You are able to make adjustments either by improving what youre doing or changing what youre doing.

Sania Mirza and Prarthana Thombare lost 6-7 (6), 7-5, 5-7 to Chinas Shuai Peng and Shuai Zhang in the first round of womens doubles at Rio Olympics on Saturday.This was the second disappointing result for Indias tennis contingent following Leander Paes and Rohan Bopannas loss in the mens doubles first round earlier in the day.While Paes and Thombares Olympic campaigns are over, Mirza and Bopanna still have their mixed doubles campaign to look forward to.Watched on by a small but enthusiastic Indian crowd including Sachin Tendulkar, Mirza and Thombare showed gumption and spunk throughout the match. Once her initial nerves settled, Thombare was remarkably assured, brightening the arena with some sharp shot-making. Her serve also gained strength as the match went on and on more than one occasion the crowd was swooning to some of her shots. Even Paes, who was present for a large part of the match, was visibly impressed with Thombare, while Bopanna continually urged her on, chanting Lets go PT repeatedly.Mirza and Thombare will look back on a few missed opportunities that they could have made count on the night. Leading 5-4 in the first, they allowed the Chinese pair to get back into the match and allowed the tiebreaker to slip away..dddddddddddd. In the second set, the Indians took a 5-2 lead, let it slip but then peeled off two straight games to level the match.The final set was a see-saw battle as well with Mirza blasting some of her trademark forehands, sprinkled with some errors. Thombare was broken at 5-5 and the Chinese pair held their nerve to finish the match off.It was a disappointing result but in Thombare India has discovered a player of immense potential who deserves to be given more opportunities to flower on the international circuit.Defending Thombares performance, Mirza said: She has just played against the guys who are in top-50. Dont be so hard on her. We just played a two hour, 44-minute match against the people who are the best in the world. So are the other 15 teams.Mirza will now focus on the mixed doubles campaign where she is expected to enjoy a high seeding with Bopanna. She remained confident of winning a medal in the mixed doubles. India always wants gold for me no matter what I play, she said. At the end of the day, we can just try. There is no guarantee in a sport. We can just try and give our best.
