The Brooklyn Nets and Orlando Magic meet Tuesday in NBA action at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Arena.
The Brooklyn Nets look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 111.5 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 112.3 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 20.6 points and 6.8 assists while Caris LeVert is averaging 18.3 points and 4.1 rebounds. Joe Harris is the third double-digit scorer and Taurean Prince is grabbing six rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.5 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.9 rebounds per game.
The Orlando Magic need a win here to snap a rough four-game losing streak. The Orlando Magic are averaging 107.1 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 108 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 19.7 points and 11 rebounds while Evan Fournier is averaging 18.5 points and 2.6 rebounds. Terrence Ross is the third double-digit scorer and Aaron Gordon is grabbing 7.7 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 77.3 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 36.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.6 rebounds per game.
The Nets are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 20-9-3 in the last 32 meetings in Orlando. The over is 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings.
The Orlando Magic just can't get out of their own way, and they're expected to be without Evan Fournier and Aaron Gordon for this contest. The Brooklyn Nets have an injured list longer than the arrest record of DMX, but they're finding ways to win games and cover numbers. The Nets are playing hard and have a roster full of guys using this opportunity as a chance to possibly earn an NBA contract this summer, if not with the Nets, another team that's paying attention. I'm not just throwing a number out there with the Magic assuming they'll figure things out.
Give me the Nets and the points.
