NBA Fantasy Basketball Picks Nets vs Magic
Dominate your competition with our NBA Fantasy Basketball Picks, create the winning lineup at Fanpicks.com. The Brooklyn Nets (21-52) travel to Florida to challenge the Orlando Magic (30-43) at Amway Center.
The struggles are undeniable for Brooklyn, but they have won two of their past three games. The most surprising win of the season for the Nets was in that span, as they conquered LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 104-95. The loss in that stretch was equally as notable though, as they hung around with the Heat on the road. Even with the nice spell, Brooklyn is still having huge struggles. The Nets had lost nine of 11 before that period of time and there were talks bouncing around about resting Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young for the rest of the season. That possibility is still likely being discussed, as they need to get some youngsters developed in this ugly situation.
The Magic come into this match-up losing six of their last seven and the once promising season appears to be long gone. It’s the sad truth, considering this team was over .500 half way through the season. The Magic have a plenty to look forward too though, with all the young prospects that they possess. Players like Nikola Vucevic, Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon, Mario Hejonja, and Evan Fournier will all progress and grow their skills further. They may very well be a top end threat next season.
The Orlando Magic should actually be a unique favorite here to win.
