OMD Prediction

The Orlando Magic seemed to be in a decent mood coming out of practice Sunday. The loss to the Dallas Mavericks had already washed over them and they chose to focus on the positives of their loss. They did do some good things and missed a lot of open shots. That might be little solace. The biggest issue still remains their defense. There is no Luka Doncic to contend with and probably no stretch big in the Brooklyn Nets. But the Nets are still a tricky team. Even Steve Clifford would admit that Orlando’s win over Brooklyn came because Brooklyn missed a lot of open shots. The Nets are playing a lot better now. And have actually played a lot better without Kyrie Irving.

104. 38. 107. 147. Prediction
