The Brooklyn Nets are on the road to take on the Orlando Magic on Sunday evening in an Eastern Conference NBA matchup inside the Amway Center. The Nets are sixth in the Eastern Conference with a 40-34 record this season and are coming off a 129-100 road win on Saturday against the Miami Heat.
The Magic are very much on the outside of the postseason and seem to be too far behind to make a late push as they are 31-43, which is 13th in the Eastern Conference. They are on a two-game winning streak after defeating the New York Knicks on Thursday at home, 111-106. This is the second of three games between them as the Nets picked up a 109-102 home win back on November 28.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Orlando Magic: Game Prediction
The Nets have been trying to turn things around recently and have played tough on the defensive side for long stretches of time, including last night in the second half against the Miami Heat. The offensive production as of late has shown there is a bit of a difference here as Brooklyn is averaging 117.3 points in their last three games, while Orlando is scoring 112.8 points in their previous four games. This Orlando team is going to struggle and that gives Brooklyn the upper hand.
All in all, go with the Brooklyn Nets to leave Florida going 2-0 in their trip.
