The Brooklyn Nets play host to the Orlando Magic at the Barclays Center on Thursday night.

The Orlando Magic have been in decent shape lately as they’ve won four of their past six games and they will be looking to bounce back after getting stopped by the Pistons in a 105-93 home loss on Tuesday. Nikola Vucevic led the team with 20 points, nine rebounds and four assists, Evan Fournier added 14 points while Terrence Ross chipped in with 13 points, eight rebounds and four assists off the bench. As a team, the Magic shot just 37 percent from the field and 14 of 38 from the 3-point line as they rallied back in the second quarter after a slow start, before getting blown out in the third quarter where they managed just 14 points in another low point this season.

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets are playing some of their best basketball of the season as they will be looking to build on their current seven-game win streak after taking down the Kings in a 127-118 home win on Tuesday. James Harden led the team with a triple-double of 29 points with 11 rebounds and 14 assists, Bruce Brown added 29 points on 11 of 13 shooting while Kyrie Irving chipped in with 21 points and seven assists. As a team, the Nets shot 49 percent from the field and 17 of 40 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 42 points in the first quarter to take an early 14-point lead, before rallying in the fourth quarter where they held the Kings to just 22 points to escape with the win.

Looking at the betting trends, the Magic are 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games following a double-digit loss at home and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Nets are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games and 7-0 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Head to head, the over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Brooklyn, the Magic are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and the Magic are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in Brooklyn.

Kevin Durant will miss his sixth straight game with a strained left hamstring, while Jeff Green and Landry Shamet are both listed as questionable, so the Nets will be shorthanded once again. The Magic have struggled overall this season, but they were building a bit of momentum before losing to the slumping Pistons in a tough loss on Tuesday. The Nets are clearly the team in better form as they’ve won seven straight and should be good enough to keep that going with another win in this one.
