The Orlando Magic have a tough test on their hands this Thursday, as they travel to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for this matchup with the Nets.
The Orlando Magic were about as bad as I have ever seen an NBA team play in their last game against the Detroit Pistons, as they dropped that home game by a margin of 12 points. I can only expect that we will see better from the Orlando Magic here, and I actually think they have a chance with the Brooklyn Nets not having their team chemistry completely together and it would not surprise me if we see Orlando being able to take advantage of some of the Net’s defensive short-comings.
It is going to take a few things for the Magic to keep this one close with one of their win conditions being the play of All-Star center Vucevic who is in a great spot here to have a strong bounce-back effort after looking a bit drained against the Detroit Pistons last time out.
This team will also need to shoot extremely well with the bulk of the responsibility likely falling on Evan Fournier and Terrance Ross who are both in the same boat as Vucevic needing to bounce-back off of poor efforts against Detroit.
The Brooklyn Nets were able to pick up a win in their last game against the Kings making it a very impressive 7 game winning streak, but they never were able to really put away Sacramento and the Kings were not at their best in that game, so that does have me a bit concerned.
The best thing the Nets can take away from that last game is that the offensive production was spread around better than usual with every starter having at least 10 points taking a lot of the pressure off of Kyrie and Harden.
Bruce Brown really ended up being the reason this team won that game by double digits, as he was 11-13 from the field and almost led the team in points with 29 and although it was a solid night that type of production and shooting efficiency is not sustainable.
Free Orlando Magic vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
As crazy as it sounds I like the Orlando Magic here, as I think they can and will show much better than they did in their last game and a lot of the individual matchups I like especially with Vucevic on the interior.
I feel like the Nets leave themselves wide-open for some of these shock, upset losses as well, with the defense they play being almost nonexistent at times ranking 28th in the league and I think Orlando has enough offensive weapons to take advantage of that.
The Nets may get some help on the interior, as Jeff Green is now listed as questionable for this game and if he is back that would be a big boost for the Nets in terms of contending with Vucevic on the interior.
