Game 31 - Nets vs. Magic - Monday, December 27, 7:00

The Nets have won three of their last 10 games.  The Magic have as well.  The Nets have won three of their last five.  The Magic have won only two.  The Nets made a big trade and got back Sasha Vujacic and two first round picks.  The Magic made two big trades and got back Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu and Earl Clark.  That's where the difference lies.

So far, it looks like the Magic got the better of their two big deals.  They've beat the Spurs and the Celtics, the latter in dramatic come-from-behind fashion on Christmas Day. In both cases, they ended a double-digit winning streak, 10 for the Spurs, 14 for the Celtics.  Now they'll road test their additions, starting in New Jersey. Jason Williams, the Magic's backup point guard, will not travel.  The Nets expect to be slightly healthier.  Quinton Ross is questionable.  Brook Lopez, who hasn't had a lot of luck vs. Dwight Howard, will get another chance.

As for the weather, it's unlikely to postpone the game.  The blizzard is expected to end during the morning rush hour.
