With injuries taking a toll, the Orlando Magic are having a difficult time adjusting in the post-Dwight Howard era.
The Brooklyn Nets, meanwhile, hope to repeat their winning formula from Friday's blowout at Orlando when they turn around and host the short-handed Magic on Sunday.
With Howard, a three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, now manning the middle for the Los Angeles Lakers, the new-look Magic (2-3) have been outscored 118-86 in the paint during a three-game losing streak.
That margin includes a 46-30 advantage by the Nets, who were coming off a 30-point loss at Miami but pounded the ball inside against Orlando on the way to a 107-68 victory.
Nets centers Brook Lopez and Andray Blatche did the most interior damage, combining for 29 points and 19 rebounds in a combined 48 minutes.
"It definitely was a focus," Lopez said. "We wanted to come out and just hit them right away."
The Nets (2-2) ...

DON'T LET THE DOOR HIT YA
Following a disappointing 1-4 start and much speculation regarding his job security, the Lakers reportedly have fired head coach Mike Brown.
The front offices of the Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets conversed plenty during the Dwight Howard saga that lasted into August, though a trade agreement never was reached.
Each new-look squad is still finding its footing without him, but Orlando hopes the recent on-court history between the clubs remains in its favor.
The Magic seek their 11th straight victory over the Nets as...
Earlier in the week on That NBA Lottery Pick, we posted a clip of Lakers center Dwight Howard airballing a free throw against the Utah Jazz.I personally thought that it would be the worst free throw of the year but Golden State's Andris Biedrins will take that award.Watch as he misses this free throw in the first quarter against the Lakers last night:
