Brooklyn Nets vs Orlando Magic takes place on Friday evening with the Nets looking to continue their impressive form shown through the early part of the season. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live live stream via the link provided below.
The Nets come into this game having won nine of their 11 clashes so far this season, which sees them tied with neighbors and arch rivals the New York Knicks for first place in the Atlantic Division.
Brooklyn are attempting to register a third victory of the Magic this month, as well as to claim a fifth straight win.
The struggling Magic, however, are simply attempting to avoid a third straight defeat.
If the Nets are to win tonight they will have to do so without center Brook Lopez, who is out for this and probably the next game with a mild foot sprain, His absence could prove vital, as he has arguably been one of the stand out players for Brooklyn so far this season, registering 18.5 points per game on average.
Andray Blatche will have to step up and take a more central scoring role tonight. He is averaging 9.1 points on average per game so far, as well as 5.4 rebounds per game. He did well earlier this week on Wednesday night when he scored 17 points as the Nets won 95-83 against the Boston Celtics.
The Magic lost 110-89 to the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, in a demoralizing match up. They are simply trying to finish their season-high five game homestand on .500 following that result.
