The Brooklyn Nets and Orlando Magic meet Sunday in NBA action at the Amway Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 113.3 points on 49 percent shooting and allowing 112.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Mikel Bridges is averaging 25.8 points and 2.4 assists, while Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 18 points and 4 rebounds. Cameron Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Nic Claxton is grabbing 9.2 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 38.1 percent from beyond the arc and 80 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.4 rebounds per game.

The Orlando Magic are averaging 111.7 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 114.4 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Paolo Banchero is averaging 20 points and 3.7 assists, while Franz Wagner is averaging 18.8 points and 4 rebounds. Wendell Carter Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Markelle Fultz is grabbing 4.1 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.9 rebounds per game.

The Nets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Magic are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Nets last 4 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 7-3 in Magic last 10 overall. The Nets are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings.

The Brooklyn Nets are on the end of a back to back, but they're coming off a monster road win over the Heat, and they need to keep winning to stay out of the play-in tournament. The Orlando Magic have nothing to play for and even with the rest advantage and home court, I'm not laying chalk with them. The Magic lose by an average of 4.3 points as favorites. I'll gladly grab the free bucket with the Nets in a game they should probably win outright.

Randy’s Pick Brooklyn Nets +2.5
