Monday, November 28th, finds the Orlando Magic facing the Brooklyn Nets for the first of three scheduled meetings this season. Orlando will host on March 26th and the final contest will take place in Brooklyn on April 7th.
Both teams are completing a back-to-back set with the Magic licking their wounds from a 103-133 thumping by the 76ers while the Nets defeated the Blazers 111-97.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Nets winning three of the four contests. The Magic holds the all-time record having bested the Nets in 68 of their 124 matches.
The injury bug is biting the Magic again with several players listed as questionable for this match. Then again, it might be the ‘tanking flu’ that teams like Orlando are sure to employ frequently this season.
Hey, once you get a look at Victor Wembanyama there is good reason to be invested in the tank, particularly for a franchise that is anxious to be relevant again.
Offense remains the issue for Orlando as they average 108.7 points per game ranking 28th overall. They shoot 46.8% from the field and 33.5% from the perimeter ranking 16th and 22nd respectively.
Defensively, Orlando holds their opponents to 114.2 points per game ranking 17th. The Magic allow opponents to shoot 47.1% from the field ranking 21st and foes shoot 34.6% from the perimeter ranking ninth overall.
Cole Anthony (oblique), Wendell Carter Jr. (foot), Markelle Fultz (toe), Jalen Suggs (ankle), and Chuma Okeke (knee) are all questionable for Monday. Jonathan Isaac (knee) is out indefinitely.
Things seem to be looking up for the Nets with Kyrie Irving back and seemingly no drama surrounding his return. Additionally, Joe Harris, Ben Simmons, and Seth Curry looked better in their recent matches as they continue to shake off the rust of their own injury downtime.
It’s equated to some victories but I’m still not sold on this team having enough length or defensive chops to be a true title contender.
In terms of performance, Brooklyn allows 111.2 points per game ranking 11th, and possesses the top ranking for opponent field goal percentage at 44.3%. Their perimeter defense is another story as foes shoot 37.9% from deep ranking 28th overall.
The see-saw stats is also reflected offensively where the Nets score 111.6 points per game which rank 18th. They own the best field goal percentage, shooting 49.5% from the field, and rank eighth overall for perimeter shooting (37.1%).
David Duke (illness) is questionable for Monday. Yuta Watanabe (hamstring) is out. TJ Warren (foot) is expected to return in early November.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Magic are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.
- The Nets are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Brooklyn’s last 5 games at home.
- The Magic are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against Brooklyn.
Free Orlando Magic vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
Theoretically, this should be an easy victory for the Nets who are at home facing a Magic squad who are limping into Brooklyn.
We’ll have to see if they copy old tendencies of losing to sub-par teams or continue to ride this recent uptick in performance which has led to four wins in their last six matches.
I’ll give the Nets the benefit of the doubt and even with the rich point spread take them to cover.
