Carroll sinks late FT, Nets drop Magic

Goran Dragic Gives Fan Incredible Souvenir After Heat Magic Game Carroll sinks late FT, Nets drop Magic

The Orlando Magic pay a visit to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets on New Year's Day. However, he missed the free throw and Brooklyn got the ball to Carroll, who was fouled and converted one free throw for the lead. After the Nets harassed D.J. Augustin into a missed last-ditch 3, Crabbe chased down the rebound to seal it. From there, Crabbe was fouled on a drive to the rim and he buried two more free throws. "[Orlando] beat us last game, so we came out here and just wanted to get the win", said Crabbe, who made two free throws to give the Nets their three-point lead with 18 seconds left. Brooklyn shot 43.9 percent from the field and was 9 of 25 from 3-point range, including Carroll's 25-footer with 4:30 left in the fourth quarter. As a team, the Nets shot just 41 percent from the field and 11 of 36 from the three-point line but they kept themselves in the game with their defense, especially in the final 4:27 where they held the Celtics without a field goal.

Allen's two blocks helped make up a season-high 10 from the team, as well. The big man has averaged 32.5 FanDuel points per game as a starter.

Orlando Magic center Bismack Biyombo has been a beast on the glass in the three games he has started in place of Nikola Vucevic. Kyle Lowry had 26 points for the Raptors, who are an NBA-best 14-1 at home.

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have lost eight of their past 10 games and they will be aiming to bounce back after last night's 108-105 loss at Boston.

Orlando squandered a 93-90 lead with 1:51 to go in the fourth after Gordon made a pair of free throws. The home team has covered in four of the last six meetings so I'm sticking with the Nets to get the win and cover over the Magic who just can't buy a win these days.

According to Nielsen , the film has reached a younger audience, with 3.9 million at ages 18-34, and 7 million at 18-49. Nielsen only tracks TV views, so mobile and PC views may add to that number.

"We've got to get everybody on the same page", Gordon said.

A most unlikely source, Biyombo, buoyed the Magic offense in the third quarter. While he is scoring only 8.3 points per game, the boards and blocks are enough to make him worthwhile fantasy play almost every night.

Orlando led 48-47 at the half, but the lead seemed to be a tenuous one considering its struggles in the second quarter.

For rising star forward Aaron Gordon and the Orlando Magic, the month of November and onwards continue to be very cruel to his team. He seemed to pick up right where he left off in his 39-point effort on Saturday by burying two 3-pointers in the game's first couple of minutes. Orlando's Wes Iwundu then answered with a basket to even it again at 95-all.

LeVert contributed 15 points and eight assists. Payton gave the Magic four points and four assists in the first 24 minutes, but he turned the ball over three times while trying to force too many passes into tight spaces.
