Advice and prediction
Take the Nets minus the points and the under in this one.
With or without James Harden, Brooklyn is going to be just fine against Orlando. They might be one game behind the Nets in the standings, but they are battling injuries with Markelle Fultz (ACL) out for the year and Fournier still unavailable. The Magic simply can’t keep up with Brooklyn’s offense.
The under is the riskier bet of the two. But, the Magic have scored under 100 points in each of their last four games, and while their defense has been just as bad, Orlando would not have hit the over set for this game in any of those contests despite surrendering 132 to Houston, 121 to Milwaukee and 124 to Boston. Their offense is struggling and Steve Nash is going to take advantage of whatever rest he can provide Kevin Durant.
Prediction: Nets 114, Magic 101
