On the second day of the season resumption, the first game of the day tips off with a matinee between two teams battling for the seventh and eighth seeds in the Eastern Conference. The Nets lead the Magic by a half-game so this match takes on extra credence in the grand scheme of things.
This is the third meeting between the teams this season and the first of two in the eight seeding game schedule. The Magic won both initial contests.
Although all 22 teams in the bubble are technically playing on the road the closest to a home team is the Magic since the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Walt Disney World is located in Orlando.
While their opponent deals with a decimated roster the Magic welcomed back rising star Jonathan Issac who played in his first game (scrimmage versus Nuggets) since January 1st after dealing with a left knee injury.
Aaron Gordon (groin soreness) and Markelle Fultz (conditioning) are listed as probable but Wes Iwundu remains in the concussion protocol program after falling off the rim on a dunk and smacking his head on the court.
The Magic beat the Nuggets and lost to both LA squads in their three scrimmages.
Stars Kevin Durant (Achilles), and Kyrie Irving (shoulder), as well as youngster Nicolas Claxton (shoulder), are not in Orlando due to injury exceptions. Wilson Chandler opted out of participating.
They are joined by DeAndre Jordan, Taurean Prince, Spencer Dinwiddie, and replacement Michael Beasley who all tested positive for COVID-19 and will not participate.
Their absence means Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, and Joe Harris will be left to pick up and carry the slack of missing seven rotational players.
The Nets were on a bit of a roll just prior to the season suspension winning four of their last five games but the absence of so many core players will make their task extremely difficult. Veteran Jamal Crawford was signed as a replacement player.
Brooklyn also went 1-2 in their three scrimmages beating the Spurs and suffering losses to the Pelicans and Jazz.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The teams are 5-5 in last 10 head to head
- The teams are 5-5 ATS in their last 10
- Over Under is 5-4-1 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Orlando Magic vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
Having Isaac back is huge for the Magic who ranked in the top ten defensively prior to the All-Star break and his injury but 26th afterward. Conversely, without their defensive cornerstone, Orlando made leaps offensively but plummeted defensively. Albeit, their success came primarily against sub .500 clubs.
Caris LeVert went on a scoring terror leading up to the hiatus but without Dinwiddie on hand and carrying so much of the primary scoring responsibility it will be a tall task.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Magic to cover the spread
The constancy of the Magic roster gives them a decided advantage over the Nets who have so many new players finding balance on both sides of the hardwood will be a challenge.
***NOTE*** In case you missed it…When the 2020 NBA 16-team playoff field is set, the NBA Playoffs will proceed in a traditional conference-based format with four rounds and best-of-seven series in each round. The 2020 NBA Finals will end no later than Oct. 13.
