Brooklyn Nets at Orlando Magic Predictions & Tips


Brooklyn’s red-hot run should continue against Orlando.

Not even an injury to Kyrie Irving could derail them against Indiana on Wednesday night.

He may return for this one and the combination of him and James Harden is likely to be too hot for Orlando to handle. It has been for just about everyone else.

But even if he does sit out, the Nets should have enough about them to win again.

  • At 28-13 Brooklyn have the joint best record in the Eastern Conference
  • Orlando are 13-27 – the second worst record in the conference
  • Brooklyn have won 14 of their last 15 games
  • The Nets have beaten Orlando twice this season and crushed them 129-92 a couple of weeks ago
  • Brooklyn have averaged 125.5 points per game in their two meetings with the Magic so far
  • Brooklyn have covered a -3.5 spread in each of their last 17 wins in regulation time
  • The Nets are averaging 120.6 points per game – the best record in the NBA
  • Brooklyn are giving up an average of 115.3 points per game – ranking in the bottom six in the NBA
  • Nets guard James Harden is averaging 25.7 points per game
  • Orlando have given up 110 points or more in five of their last seven games

Head To Head


  • Orlando Magic lead the regular season series 66-53
  • Brooklyn have won both meetings between the two teams this season
  • The Nets have won each of the last three games against the Magic

Brooklyn Nets Form & Team News


Brooklyn have been borderline unstoppable over the past couple of months.

The Nets have won 14 of their last 15 games and this run includes a meeting with Orlando last month. Brooklyn stormed to a 129-92 victory in that one.

That was a home meeting, but this Nets team are red-hot on the road too, winning each of their last eight away from the Barclays Center.

This fantastic run of form has come in the face of injuries to key players.

Kevin Durant (hamstring) is facing another couple of weeks on the sidelines and Blake Griffin has not yet cleared Healthy & Safety Protocols.

Kyrie Irving could return from the groin injury that kept him out on Wednesday, but Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is done for the season.

Orlando Magic Form & Team News


Orlando have struggled badly since the win over Detroit in late February.

The Magic have lost nine games in a row and some of those losses have been very ugly.

They put up only 77 points as they were smashed by San Antonio and gave up 130 points to Dallas.

Orlando have also dropped both of their previous meetings with Brooklyn, with that last encounter ending in a one-sided blowout.

Orlando are not helped by a lengthy injury list that has depleted who Steve Clifford can call upon.

Markelle Fultz and Jonathan Isaac (both knee) are done for the season, while the Cole Anthony (rib) and James Ennis (calf) have spent some time on the sidelines.

Evan Fournier (groin), Aaron Gordon (ankle) and Terrence Ross (knee) have all been considered day-to-day this week.
