What a Win for the Nets

The Nets faced off against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday and it was a strong victory. The Nets put up 44 points in the third quarter, and that was enough to pace them to a 120-101 victory. Cam Thomas had a strong game, putting up 29 points, seven rebounds, and five assists.  The Nets on the season are averaging 111.9 points, while their defense is giving up 113.9 points per game. The defense is ranked 15th in the league, and the Nets are going to need the defense to step up in a big way here. Cam Johnson has an ankle injury and he’s going to be out until late March. 

Can Magic Bounce Back?

The Magic faced off against the Indiana Pacers in the last game and at the end of the first quarter they were up 24-18. The rest of the game the offense wasn’t great, and they ended up losing 111-97. Paolo Banchero was the top player, putting up 19 points, five rebounds, and five assists. The Magic are averaging 110.6 points, while their defense is giving up 109.4 points per game. Markelle Fultz and Jalen Suggs are both questionable for this game. If neither guy can go, that will be especially a big loss for this team. 

Orlando Magic Player Facts

  • Paolo Banchero is one of only 13 qualified players in the league averaging at least 20.0 points, 5.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds this season.
  • Franz Wagner ranks 19th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for FT% (84.3%) this season.

Nets vs Magic Betting Prediction

The Magic’s offense hasn’t been strong heading into this game, and that is going to be the case again in this game. In the last game, they only scored 97 points. The defense for this team though has been pretty good and the defense is going to step up in this game. The Magic and Nets are both going to struggle to get the offense going, and this game is going to stay under the total.
