Nets Thump Magic, Improving to 2-2
Andray Blatche had 15 points, Brook Lopez added 14 points and 10 rebounds and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Orlando Magic 107-68 Friday night.
Brooklyn never trailed while snapping a 10-game losing streak to Orlando that dated to 2009.
E’Twaun Moore led the Magic with 18 points, and Arron Afflalo finished with 12.
The Nets dominated inside, with Lopez and Blatche pushing around Orlando’s young front line. They also got a lift from their bench, with Brooklyn’s reserves outscoring their counterparts 55-18 for the game.
Orlando tied a franchise-low with four made free throws, compared to 16 for Brooklyn.
The teams play each other again Sunday in Brooklyn, the second of four meetings this season.
