Brooklyn nets vs Orlando Magic Prediction and Odds: Preview
Orlando broke their three match unbeaten streak with their win over Knicks. Magic lost to Nets 123-90 a few days ago and would be determined to avenge their defeat this time.
Kevn Durant had a 30 pointer match while James Harden netted his 59th triple double as the Nets demolished Magic. Harden ended the match with 17 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds.
Terrence Ross recorded 17 points for the losing cause while Mo Bamba racked up 14 points and nine rebounds.
The Nets have some of the best shooters in their team and in Durant and Harden they have two of the best players. Durant can be very effective on the high post while Harden can dribble past a number of opponents to score a basket.
Orlando were pretty good against the Knicks in the last match. The young side defended pretty well and six players recorded double digit points in this match.
Markelle Fultz and Michael Carter-Williams have been on the sidelines due to injury issues and they won’t be able to face the nets on Friday. Cole Anthony will be the player to watch out for this season. The player racked up 15 points, 7 assists and 10 rebounds in the last match and he is one of the main players for Orlando this season. He has been shouldering the Orlando offence and would be determined to replicate his form in the next game.
Brooklyn got back to winning ways in the last match following their humiliating loss against Golden State Warriors. Patty Miles recorded 21 points while LaMarcus Alridge contributed 24 points in the match.
Although James Harden has been pretty good in the last few matches Joe Harris’ shooting has been missed. Kyre Irving hasn’t been able to make a single appearance as he is yet to receive a single dose of the covid-19 vaccine.
New York’s vaccine mandate states one must have at least a single dose to be able to use an indoor play arena. Irving has refused to get vaccinated at although he had permission to practice with the team in New York, the side decided not to include him in the practice session as it might distract the team from the main agenda.
He is also set to lose a major chunk of money and if the situation continues Nets might not extend his contract.

3. The Brooklyn Nets appear to have stealthily completely changed their jerseys to the throwbacks. 4. I hate this version of the Celtics. They are probably a playoff team, but man it’s a brutal watch. 5. Shout out to @ElliottZaagman for pointing me to Cade Cunningham for ROY.
