The Orlando Magic had some difficulty on their recent extended road trip, and now they need to change their fortunes in a building which they’ve never won in. The team is 0-6 in its all-time trips to the Barclays Center, where they’ll be Monday night to take on the Brooklyn Nets.
Orlando is still feeling the effects of the second-worst loss in team history when it lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers by a score of 111-76 on Friday. The team shot 38.9 percent from the field in what was their lowest scoring output of the season.
The Magic were back at home for that one after a road trip in which they went 3-2, but lost two of their final three games. In their last four outings, the team has allowed opposing shooters to connect at a 46.2 percent clip.
Along with the Sacramento Kings, the Magic are one of only two teams never to win in Brooklyn. However, the Los Angeles Clippers picked up their first ever win there on Saturday in a 105-100 victory, dropping that list down from three.
Brooklyn trailed the Clippers by 14 entering the fourth quarter of that contest, but posted a 37-point frame, thanks to 11 from Andrea Bargnani. The team hit on 5 of 19 attempts from beyond the arc, and are shooting 30.4 percent from deep as a team on the season.
Scoring on the interior hasn’t been great for the team either of late, with Brook Lopez scoring all of 21 points over his last two games. Lopez is averaging 8.2 rebounds per game, which would stand as his best total over the last six seasons if it holds.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Magic put out one of their worst performances in years just a few days ago, but don’t be surprised if Orlando bounces back in a big way in this one to show some pride – a common characteristic on Scott Skiles coached teams.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Magic -2.5
The Nets have the advantage of getting this game at home, but they haven’t played well anywhere this season. They’ve also had trouble scoring inside of late, which is concerning as the team ranks among the worst in the league at shooting from beyond the arc, while the Magic rank among the top teams in the league at defending the 3-point arc.
