The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Monday, Nov. 28 with 10 more exciting games, including a showdown between the Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets. The Magic have been as bad as advertised this campaign, dropping their fourth straight game in the form of a 133-103 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Nets have had issues stringing together back-to-back games lately. The good news is that they do have some momentum on their side after getting a solid 111-97 win over the Portland Trail Blazers yesterday, led by a 31-point effort from none other than Kevin Durant.

Nets vs. Magic Prediction & Pick
The Magic have been bad all season long, but have looked even worse lately. Their minus-19.7 point differential over their last three games is, by far, the worst in the Association. On top of that, Orlando also averages a league-low 104.1 points on the road due to a lack of star power.
Meanwhile, the Nets have won three of five games since Kyrie Irving returned to the lineup. The veteran guard is averaging 21.6 points over his last five games, while Kevin Durant has operated on a 25.0 PPG clip since his running mate's return.
Even with Paolo Bancher playing great for the Magic, his team is banged-up from top to bottom. Orlando simply doesn't have the talent to compete with Irving, Durant and co. With extra support from the Brooklyn crowd, the Nets shouldn't break too much of a sweat here.
Final Score Prediction: Nets: 115 | Magic: 103
Nets vs. Magic Best Bet
The Nets are one of those teams that the Magic struggle against, losing six of the last eight matchups. Brooklyn actually beat Orlando by 42 points in their last meeting and has actually picked up four of its last six wins against the Magic by double-digit totals.
With Orlando being bad this season and banged-up heading into tonight, I'll take the Nets covering the spread.
Bet: Nets -10 (-112)
