It’s an Eastern Conference showdown on Friday night at the Barclays Center. The Orlando Magic will look for their second win of the season when they take on the Brooklyn Nets.
These two teams played three times last year with the Magic winning two of the games. Each of the three games last year were very high scoring affairs.
After a very disappointing season last year the Orlando Magic are hoping for better results this year. Last year they didn’t really have enough scoring, and the defense wasn’t that great and it led to a lot of poor results.
In the first game of this season, they got off to a good start. The defense still looks like it’s a work in progress, but the offense had no issues scoring.
They played the Miami Heat and it was a pretty fast paced game that ended with the Magic coming out ahead by a final score of 116-109.
The big positive to come out of this game was the balanced scoring of this team. Against the Heat all five starters had at least 13 points.
Evan Fournier was the guy who led the scoring putting up 23 points including three of five from behind the arc.
They need to expect another high scoring affair in this game, so to come out ahead they need the offense to have a really balanced attack again.
On the other side of this match up is the Brooklyn Nets who already had a really tall battle in store this season, and after game one it only got worse.
Their starting point guard Jeremy Lin ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee and now will probably be out for the season.
In game one the Nets took on the Indiana Pacers and it was a game that featured all kinds of offense, and very little defense.
In the end though the Pacers came out ahead 140-131. The Nets were led by their big off season acquisition D’Angelo Russell who had 30 points, including 4-8 from behind the three point line.
To win this game the Nets are going to need to find some way to play some defense. They have the scoring output to keep up with teams, but not when the other team is scoring 140 points.
They might actually do better in this game if they try to slow down the pace just a bit, to focus on the defensive end a little more.

Like most of the games last year between the two teams I think this will be a high paced affair that features all kinds of scoring.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Magic +1
I think that the Jeremy Lin injury is going to affect the Nets in this game. I think the Magic will have a slight advantage and that will lead to a victory, but it will be close.
