The Magic's lottery pick, Victor Oladipo, stole the show in Jason Kidd's coaching debut in a bad loss for the Nets
In what was most definitely a letdown from their huge win on Friday night in Brooklyn, the Nets got destroyed tonight by the Orlando Magic in Jason Kidd's head-coaching debut. With the odd early-evening timing of the game, maybe it was sleepiness that did the Nets in, or maybe just that they severely overlooked their opponent.
The Nets and Magic started out this evening's festivities in what was basically a deadheat, with no team taking a lead of more than three. Baskets were exchanged early on as the first quarter ended with both teams at 22 points. The second quarter was much of the same, with the Magic bench (most notably Oladipo) noticeably outworking the Brooklyn reserves. That was until Brook Lopez entered the game, scored six quick points, and gave the Nets a lead.
