Recap: New Orleans vs. Orlando

Mexico City, Mexico (Sports Network) - Brian Roberts' three-pointer gave the Hornets a five-point cushion with just over a minute to play and New Orleans held on to defeat the Orlando Magic, 85-80, in the preseason opener for both teams.

Roberts, who played for the Brose Baskets Bamberg in Germany last season, led all scorers with 17 points off the bench. No.1 overall pick, Anthony Davis, played well in his debut for the Hornets, scoring eight points and pulling down eight rebounds. Fellow rookie Austin Rivers poured in 10 points in his first NBA action.

The Magic begin their first season without star Dwight Howard. The disgruntled center was finally traded to the Los Angeles Lakers this past offseason.

E'Twaun Moore, who spent his rookie season in Boston last season, scored a team-high 16 points off the bench for Orlando. Glen Davis also contributed 13 points and second-year forward Gustavo Ayon added 12 in the defeat.
