The Brooklyn Nets were waiting in town for Orlando, while the Magic played the front end of a duel in New York on Thursday. But surprisingly, Orlando was the team that looked like they had fresh legs on Friday night. After 21 three-point field goals (two off a franchise record), the Magic defeated the Brooklyn Nets 121-113 at the Amway Center. Aaron Gordon, who was at the center of the league rumors as the NBA trading deadline approached next week, hit a season high of 38 points (14-20 FGAs, 7-8 3PTAs) to lead Orlando’s offensive attack. Eva Fournier, who flipped the ball with the game on the line on Thursday night in New York, scored 31 points (6-8 3PTAs). The Magic ended with a difference of 33 points in points from three-point field goals against the best offensive team in the league. Orlando’s success in shooting basketball helped them build an early lead in the competition. Gordon stormed out of the gates and scored nine points (including two three-point field goals) in the first six minutes of the game. And Chasson Randle, who started on Friday night because Michael Carter-Williams missed his second game in a row (illness), gave the magic a huge boost, scoring 10 points (3 for 4 on three-point field goal attempts) in the first quarter . Orlando built a double-digit lead over Brooklyn in the middle of the second quarter after Fournier scored a three-point field goal from the left wing. Six direct points from Joe Harris helped take the lead from Orlando until Nikola Vucevic found Randle wide open for another three-point field goal from the left corner. Gordon continued his standout game in the second quarter. He led all Magic scorers with 21 points in the first half.

The Magic couldn’t miss the first half and struck a season high of 13 three-point field goals (season high in each half – 4 from Gordon, 4 from Randle, 4 from Fournier). In fact, the 13 three-point field goals set a franchise record for three in a half.
All-star guard Kyrie Irving took over the game to end the first half, scoring 13 of his 15 points in the second quarter in the last three minutes of the second quarter. Despite the hot shooting in Orlando, they only led Brooklyn by two points during the break.

Orlando flashed Brooklyn out of half and ran out on a 28-14 to open the third quarter. Vucevic, who apparently was the only Magic player on the floor who didn’t play well in the first half, started the start in the third half. The Orlando All-Star Center scored three consecutive three-point field goals on consecutive Magic Offensive possessions, followed by a few free throws and a midfielder (all within two minutes), raising Orlando’s lead to 17 points. Dwayne Bacon buried a three when the shot clock ran out to close the third quarter, a possession that summed up how the night went for the magic. Gordon dribbled way too much, possession was nowhere quick, and then Bacon hit a big shot when the clock ran out to bring the magic to fourth by 7pm. Coach Clifford, however, was forced to burn two fairly quick time outs within the first two minutes of the fourth quarter. Brooklyn opened the period with an 11-0 run, a stretch that included particularly tough play from Mo Bamba. Clifford was forced to bring Vucevic back at 9:52 in the game, much earlier than usual. Indeed, Orlando’s first field goal in the fourth quarter came in at 5:37. Fournier hit a big shot with just over four minutes remaining, crossed his man on the left wing, then threw a three to increase the magic by nine. But James Harden immediately responded with a three of his own to reduce the game to a two-ball competition.

Brooklyn had the opportunity to play a draw with the home team, but missed countless open three-point attempts. The Nets finished the game 10 for 37 from a distance (27 percent) compared to Orlando 52.5 percent on three-point field goals (21 for 40). In the end, the night belonged to Gordon, who sealed the game with a tip-in and a final three-point field goal in the final moments of the competition. Irving led all goal scorers in the game with 43 points, Harden had a relatively quiet night by his standards and ended with 19 points (4 of 16 shots) and 9 assists Boston for a slope on Sunday afternoon (3:30 EST tip).
