Nets vs Magic Preview
Defending Champion Toronto Raptors defeated Bucks 114-106 last night and with this they have secured the No.2 seed in the East and will play Nets in the first round.
Similarly, Magic will face Bucks. With the playoff match ups already decided for both Magic and Nets, they would want to try all their combinations before heading into the post season.
Both sides started their campaign facing each other in the opening game. Magic defeated Nets, but from there Nets have bounced back and Magic is on the backfoot because a four-game losing streak. The two sides will go easy in today’s match as any injury could cost them in the playoffs.
Nets already have a lot of issues with Kevin Durant and Kyrie out due to injury and Dinwiddie dealing with coronavirus.
Caris LeVert has been shining for the Nets in Orlando as his consistent performances have led the side to four wins. He scored 27 points and his career-high 13 assists on Sunday against Clippers. Jarrett Allen and Tyler Johnson are also in good shape.
Magic’s Terrence Ross has left the campus for a medical emergency(but not COVID-19). Aaron Gordon has also not played the previous two games due to left hamstring and is doubtful for today. The side will hope that they can put their roster in one place for the playoffs.
Nets will go in as favorites for the game as Caris LeVert is firing and Magic are a little shorthanded
