On the season, the Nets are averaging 98.5 points on 45.3 percent shooting and are allowing 101 point son 45.4 percent shooting. Brook Lopez is averaging 17.3 points and 7.4 rebounds while Joe Johnson is averaging 14.5 points and 3.7 assists. Thaddeus Young is grabbing 5.7 rebounds and Deron Williams is dishing 6.6 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting just 42.6 percent from the field in their last five games and have lost five of their last six when scoring less than 100 points. The Nets have won six of their last eight home games. The Nets will keep their playoff hopes alive with a victory here.
The Magic are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Nets are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 8-21 ATS in their last 29 vs. NBA Southeast. The Magic are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Nets haven't been playing great ball as of late and have been even worse ATS, especially against Southeat teams. The Magic continue to fight and play hard. I'll gladly take the double-digit points here.
