The Orlando Magic get a chance to avenge a bitter defeat when they play at the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.
With Aaron Gordon watching the final 9:19 from the bench after his back stiffened, the Magic blew a 21-point lead in a 117-115 home loss to the surging Nets on Friday night.
Gordon, who has missed Orlando's last two games, remains questionable for Wednesday.
The Magic valued quantity over quality in Gordon's absence in a 122-103 win at Atlanta on Monday.
Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier each scored 29 points. Terrence Ross (16) and D.J. Augustin (15) also scored in double figures, and four other Magic players contributed at least seven points to the club's biggest offensive output since putting up 131 on the New York Knicks more than two months ago.
Orlando coach Steve Clifford noted in the wake of the Brooklyn loss that offense hasn't been a recent problem for his club. The Magic hit 50 percent of their shots in the narrow defeat to the Nets, then were even more accurate (50.5 percent) in the holiday victory over Atlanta that snapped a three-game losing streak. >> Read More
