Jalen Suggs drops 24 points in summer league debut (1:15)

Jalen Suggs shows out in his summer league debut as he scores 24 points to lead the Magic to an overtime win vs. the Warriors. (1:15)

Wednesday's summer league matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic features four top-10 picks in the last two drafts -- Evan Mobley and Isaac Okoro for the Cavs, Jalen Suggs and Franz Wagner for the Magic -- with each member of that quartet expected to have a big role in reshaping their respective franchises.

With that in mind, here are three things fans should be watching in the Eastern Conference bout.


The scoring prowess of Okoro and Suggs

With the Magic starting a three-guard lineup in Suggs, Cole Anthony and R.J. Hampton, there's a good chance we'll see Cleveland's best perimeter defender, Okoro, checking Suggs for long stretches. Although he wasn't overly efficient in a win over the Warriors -- he shot just 9-of-22 from the field -- Suggs bullied Golden State's smaller guards on his way to the rim with his strength and aggression. Suggs won't have that luxury against the 6-foot-6, 225-pound Okoro, who has been comfortable defending either backcourt spot early on in his NBA career. Can Suggs score efficiently in the half-court as the primary creator against a strong-bodied defender like Okoro?
