The Nets haven’t exactly turned into world-beaters, but they are a very respectable 28-25 and sitting in the sixth position out East. The Magic, on the other hand, are just 3-7 in their last 10 and are competing for a spot in lottery’s top-three best odds for a draft pick.
Brooklyn enters this game having won seven of their last 10 games. This team has had a couple unfortunate blows to its roster via injuries, but it’s still finding ways to win and make a name for itself under the leadership of Kenny Atkinson.
So far this season, the Nets are 12-14 straight up as the road time.
In this contest, the matchup to focus on is Jarrett Allen (Nets) vs. Nikola Vucevic (Magic). Allen has made a habit this season of shutting down opposing bigs at the rim. And, actually, he’s made a habit of rejecting star players of all positions.
Vucevic is a prime candidate to be moved before the trade deadline on Thursday, which means the Magic will be showcasing him every chance they get.
How Allen handles the opposing center should dictate what kind of success the Nets are having overall.
The Magic are coming off a 107-100 win over the Victor Oladipo-less Indiana Pacers, but that was just their first win following four straight losses (a stretch that dated further back to seven losses in eight outings).
Against the Nets, the Magic need to control the pace first and foremost. When the Nets are allowed to play their game, they’re tougher to beat than advertised because of the sqift adjustments and X’s and O’s reactions of Atkinson.
Nobody has accused the Magic of being coached “too well” in quite some time.
Orlando must be ready to make their own adjustments if Brooklyn is allowed to control the pace from the get.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
This game isn’t going to garner many national headlines on Saturday, but it’s a low-key important one considering the Nets are desperate for a playoff berth and the Magic are desperate for ping-pong balls.
