5 hrs away and no game thread for the first game back?! You guys are better than that.

No pretty pictures or cheerleaders to gawk at. JUST PURE MAGIC!

(1st game thread btw, I'll get better at this. I'm at work and thought we needed to discuss today's game sooner than later)!

GO MAGIC!

Does anyone have any predictions on tonights game? What random player will drop 50 on us? Who's going to ball out for us? Does Isaac/Fultz play more than 8 minutes?

Levert will be a problem. I think Isaac will play around 15, Fultz 20.
Bold Predictions:
1. Deandre Ayton biggest disappointment of 2018 draft.
2. Nick Nurse becomes Orlando Magic Head Coach. (15.04.2018)

In order:

1. We win by 15
2. Jamal Crawford
3. Fultz
4. Both yes, but Isaac not by much

I'm interested to see how Vuc performs against Allen, but aside from him and Levert this Nets team does not have much talent that should worry us without Kyrie, KD or Dinwiddie.

I predict we have it won by the end of the 3rd and Vic Law or BJ Johnson get enough minutes to hit double figures.

Let's go Magic!

I hope Fournier plays a lot better at the defensive end then what he showed on scrimmages otherwise someone on Nets team will get hot.

Fulz and Isaac are our bread and butter :D

We need to come out all cylinders going for the restart! Need to take this game for sure... this will be a momentum starters, just in the standing category alone!

Gotta sit out JI and Fultz this game. They might be tired from the 2 minutes they played the other day.

I'm excited to see us slow down the pace, watch some buddy ball, some AG fadeaways, Fultz standing in a corner while DJ runs the offense and Bamba sitting on the bench while Birch does nothing on the court.

I love this team :D

I really hope this prediction is wrong because every time Vucevic has a strong game we lose. When our wings are killing it that's typically the winning formula so hopes to Fournier/Ross/Gordon going ham.

Our best players aren’t starting and probably will play limited minutes. I guess we aren’t really that serious about getting 7th seed

This is a big one for us to over take the 7th seed. We win this we leap frog Brooklyn and can hopefully be in the drives seat for the 7th spot the rest of the way. I think if we lose this game its gonna be a challenge to take the 7th seed. Must win in my opinion. GO MAGIC !!!

JI and Fultz will come off the bench. I understand minutes restriction but why not start them to build chemistry back up before you get to the playoffs ?

Oh well, if the starters can keep the game in range, than the bench with Fultz, Tross, and JI should destroy the other team's backups. Would be cool to see Bamba play some minutes with JI and Fultz, instead of Birch IMO.

Don't worry, Vuc will not score 30 on Allen.
