The Orlando Magic and the Brooklyn Nets duke it out at the Barclays Center on Friday night.

The Orlando Magic have been struggling so far as they’ve lost 11 of their first 15 games but they will be feeling much better after arresting a three-game skid with a 104-98 road win on Wednesday. Terrence Ross led the team with 19 points off the bench, Franz Wagner added 16 points with nine rebounds while Cole Anthony chipped in with 15 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists. As a team, the Magic shot just 40 percent from the field and 11 of 38 from the 3-point line as they did a great job of hanging in the contest until they closed the final 6:33 on a 20-9 run to escape with the unlikely victory. Anthony had a rough shooting night as he made just five of 21 from the field while Jalen Suggs played just 26 minutes before leaving with a quad injury which leaves his status as questionable for Friday.

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in great shape as they’ve won nine of their past 11 games and they will be looking to stay hot after taking down the Cavaliers in a 109-99 home win on Wednesday. James Harden led the team with 27 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, LaMarcus Aldridge added 24 points on 11 of 19 from the field, Kevin Durant scored 23 points while Patty Mills chipped in with 21 points. As a team, the Nets shot 45 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they dominated the first half to lead by as many as 23 points, before holding off a late rally from the Cavaliers to earn the win at home.

Looking at the betting trends, the Magic are 1-5 ATS in their last six road games against a team with a winning home record and 6-16 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Nets are 18-6 ATS in their last 24 games against a team with a losing record and 16-6 ATS in their last 22 home games.

Head to head, the over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall, the Magic are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall and the Magic are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Brooklyn.

The Magic have been marred by injuries this season and they’ve yet to hit their stride or find any consistency and they could also be without Suggs once again. The Nets have their own injuries to deal with as they’re still without Joe Harris, Nic Claxton and Paul Millsap, but that hasn’t slowed them down much this season. The Magic looked great in their upset win over the Knicks on Wednesday, but I think they’ll struggle in this meeting. The Nets are looking better with Harden improving on a nightly basis and I think they’ll be too much in this one.
