Game notes the team released in advance of the exhibition opener had Vasquez (point) and rookie Austin Rivers (shooting) scheduled to start at the guard positions, With Al-Farouq Aminu at small forward, rookie Anthony Davis at power forward and Robin Lopez at center.
Aminu/Lopez ahead of Anderson looks like a defense first decision to me so I'm a little surprised Rivers beat out Mason Jr. Hopefully that means Rivers has picked up the defense quickly.
he did say Friday that shooting guard Eric Gordon would not play against the Magic.
Hopefully he just bumped his knee on the Tank again and Stern wants the Hornets to take a dive so Gustavo's team can win in Mexico City.
