The NBA is back in action today as the Brooklyn Nets will clash with the Orlando Magic.
The Nets are heading into this game after an overtime win against Houston away with a score of 145-142. While the Magic suffered an away defeat in Detroit with a score of 120-115.
Brooklyn Nets Form
The Nets are heading into this game after some solid play in their recent game. To be more specific, Brooklyn has won their last two games in a row. Moreover, they have been on the winning side in 15 of their last 20 NBA games.
Also, Spencer Dinwiddie is playing well lately. He led the Nets with 33 points and 10 assists in the win against the Rockets.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nets have been scoring an average of 111.4 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 16th spot in the league. Furthermore, the Nets have been collecting an average of 45.8 rebounds per game. Also, they have 23.5 dimes per contest.
Brooklyn is on the 18th spot in the league in scoring defence as they allow 112.0 points a game.
Orlando Magic Form
The Magic are heading into this game after a narrow defeat in the Motor City. Moreover, they are now on the 10th spot in the Eastern Conference with 1.5 games behind the Hornets.
However, it is important to emphasize that they have the solid Nikola Vukcevic and I expect more to come from him this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Magic have an average of 103.6 points per game. Therefore this record is enough for the 27th spot in the league in scoring. Moreover, they have an average of 43.1 boards per contest.
On the defensive side of the game, they have been very solid as they have the 7th best record in the league. The Magic is conceding an average of 107.5 points per night.
The Nets have been playing very well. Moreover, their form keeps improving and they have been dominant in the recent weeks. Moreover, they need to keep the pace in order to secure their place in the playoffs. On the other side, the Magic played well as they won two games in a row. However, it seems that their energy levels are dropping as they were beaten in Detroit.
All in all, this is chance for the Nets to maintain the winning momentum. Therefore, I will take Brooklyn in this one.
