But of course, as promised, coming back in here for second half action between you, Orlando Magic and your Brooklyn Nets, we will just get a few moments here for everyone to get back in and involved before we kick off the third quarter and will continue to be watching how Caris Levert attacks towards the basket.
Use that mid range of perimeter game and see if he's able to round out this performance here as the Nets of Bring in a 13 point advantage, 54 to 41 back in just a minute here with continuing coverage of the third quarter.
Thank you, as always, for rejoining us here on SportsCastr.
On social media, we got Nets and on iTunes.
If you If you care to listen to myself and the sultry sounds of Doug Nori at, we got Nets and away we go.
Third quarter action underway with Orlando on the offensive end off the elbow for folks good and through as Orlando looks toe get themselves off to a faster start here in the third than they did in the second, where the Nets outscored them 27 to 1911 point advantage as Levert works off the dribble on the corner kicks out the Spencer Dinwiddie, and it is the entrepreneur reaching into his bag of tricks for yet another three bowl.
He now get himself 17 points and three of five shooting from the outside.
So great performance here by Spencer Dinwiddie.
He's been rounding out his game nicely, and oh, by the way, that also marks the fifth assist for Caris.
Levert, this one, Steel on the interior Allen comes away with it, gets it up to Spencer Dinwiddie, who rattles home another three bowl.
And just like that, the Nets and the entrepreneur put themselves up 17 60 to 43 early here in the third.
And it's fakes on the three gets on the baseline there against Tori on Prince, who holds his ground.
Manual work in transition.
He's going to drop it off to Jared Allen, who kicks out, too.
Joe Harris Harris, now over to the corner, and Spencer didn't when he rises up, though, I think the bench and the arena would have erupted if he knocked down 1/3 consecutive three, instead, got to settle for the one and done and go the other way here is Ennis pulls up at the foul line and knocks that one down.
An important bucket there for Orlando has right out the gate there.
What was a 13 point advantage? Balloons? 17.
Now back down to 15.
Here, a story on Prince works on the inside, gives up the dribble, kicks out to caress lover.
He has Fornier defending against him.
There gets caught there with the double team.
Pivots around, kicks over to Spencer Dinwiddie.
The deep Eve is off front rim.
So Spencer, dimly trying to heat check himself right back into rhythm, comes up a little bit short.
Nevertheless, what an electric starts in this second half nets up by 15.
The perimeter three will go for Orlando.
That one coming off the hands of Harris.
And just like that, back within 12.
So you know, you can respect Spencer Dim when he wanted to keep trying.
Knock down those threes.
But you'd like to maybe see him go with a little more consistency and give himself an opportunity or a teammate for a good look.
Here he drives and kicks Tori on Prince takes his man off the dribble, works on the inside and the mid range shot is good as Ah, Tori on Prince now finds himself on that score card with five points.
One and done here are certainly seven now, following that bucket one and done here that was didn't with his third assists.
He used the Jared Allen screen drives baseline throws this one up as it was.
Ah, Vucevic's getting called on the foul.
Nice had esteem for Spencer Dinwiddie, a 60 to 48 advantage right now and Brooklyn doing a great job here, coming out aggressively to start off this contest.
Now we've been talking about and watching his Nets get the inbounds going here.
Laverne over the dimly Fultz rate up in his chest, uses the Alan screen, works inside Bounce pass to Jared Allen.
The foul and it goes.
The pro knows where to go with the bands past.
Gets that one up off glass and in, he heads back to the foul line here with an opportunity to convert the three point play market down for four.
Now assists of four Spencer Dinwiddie, who is doing it all with a 20 point performance right now, four of eight shooting from beyond the arc, eight of 14 overall.
And now that fourth assists, which Jared Allen comes up short, however, Tourney on Prince will tip that one on the rebound here to Joe Harris, who wheels outside and it is Lumber Joe.
They catch it to go as the flashes, the now infamous Finch fist pump to his teammates on the bench.
Everyone is involved here, and this marks down the 2nd 3 us as human 2nd 70 run here for Brooklyn in this game, as they now come out here in the third quarter really looking to take the heart out of the team and that fist pump is honored on the bench there.
Love this stuff you've got feel Pinson Garrett Temple streaming down the sideline there with the Joe Harris pump on.
As we say now, the Brooklyn Nets find themselves with a 67 48 19 point advantage.
They start this quarter off 13 to 7 advantage over Orlando.
Carrying that back over to the second, the Nets have now outscored the Orlando Magic a combined 40 to 26 over the second and into the third quarter of action.
Now we had mentioned, of course as well.
The earlier game action.
We were saying how the ah, Brooklyn Nets have done a nice job over this 12 to 4 run 12 and four run of 84 over the last 12 games.
Excuse me? Where they have shot and made 14 3 pointers to an average of just 94 of the opposition.
And when we think about was double check here and make sure that I had those stat lines, right? And yes, indeed I did, because I usually D'oh.
So you go inside these numbers here, though, and talk about the full box score for the for both these teams, four of 19 here.
And you know, at this stage, when you're talking about being a 47 marks, you're not really midway through the third yet, but just four of 19 for Orlando Nets now sitting at nine of 20 so you can think nets are gonna be rate in that range Here.
Could be as many as 10 or 11 or 12.
Made three pointers by the end of the quarter here and you don't see necessarily Orlando knocking down what has now been two plus quarters of game action on Lee able to convert on four off their perimeter shots.
That being the case we've highlighted this before.
Seems like early in these games before, obviously Kyrie and Caress were back on the court Dimwit.
He was doing a whole bunch of heavy lifting for this team.
But here in these ones now early in the contest, it seems like you're going to give Caris Levert every opportunity to be effective, to probe, to get to the basket and to knock down some good looks for himself.
Ah, but you could also see and we've highly this on the podcast before how Spencer Dinwiddie has that ability is take over a game on it comes out here in the third quarter, knocks down to big three pointers, test the market on it, see if there's any more to be had, doesn't other converting them, but then immediately pivots right and it goes ahead and find story on Prince who gets into the middle of the lane there and gets a little pull a pop.
He then comes back down again, takes his man off the dribble, drives into the lane, bounce past the chair down, finish an opportunity that doesn't convert for and won, but nevertheless just ah, fantastic chance here that to take advantage off some of these looks here, and they've done so back in here on the game action.
Short front rim on a three ball opportunity.
Alan come with low rebound, kicks it outside Dettori on Prince Hill.
Run and drive the length too strong on the layup, though hard off the back rim back aren't excuse me and now folds in transition.
Kicks out the 48 gets that feed right back.
It's Spencer dimly defending against him.
He goes baseline kicks inside, and it is Aaron Gordon who was the beneficiary there.
This one bounces away.
So brief timeout here.
Aaron Gordon now is the least of these lives, with Ennis Gordon, Fornier Folds and Vucevic's Harris livered Alan Dim, Woody and Prince.
That would mark starting lineups for both rosters, cutting the lead as we approach eight minutes down to 17 here.
Ah, Aaron Gordon now has 10 points through two plus quarters of action.
Joe Harris driving kick, Tori on Prince extra fee dispenser Dignity.
He goes inside and then air mails.
This one looking for Joe Harris in the corner.
Unable to get that once ago, DeAndre Jordan takes the opportunity to pick that loose ball up off the bench and fire. Three.
What she promptly threw that behind the backboard didn't quite have the range there, and we'll get a little bit of ah, ribbing from Garrett Temple there as well.
This is Musa ***** handing off to, and his Ennis will drive against Joe Hares kick over to boost ceviche.
Mid range is good, he knocks it down, and now Vucevic's will give himself just his fourth bucket.
Excuse me and only his second bucket.
Two of six now Spencer Dinwiddie.
Many euro step up at the basket.
Gets that one's ago now has 22 points on the evening, doing some heavy lifting in the third quarter here for the Nets, Joe Harris tries to fight to the screen, will get hit with a foul called against Ennis on the outside.
And as we like to do, we go ahead and take a look inside the numbers on Twitter.
Does Doug know we have any duct nuggets for us? It doesn't so nothing doing here from the Dumpster as Fornier drives and draws, the foul still remains.
69 52 7 20 Marchal Avert Picked up That found Didn't appreciate it.
Take a brief step away here.
Come right back in.
Following these foul shots and continuing coverage of the third quarter is there a team would each row **** and then kicked into the outside.
Natori on Prince takes his man off the dribble.
Drives to the basket, cannot convert the rim, but we'll go to the line shooting to as that foul call went against Vucevic's who did not appreciate it, by the way.
So, unfortunately, I give another opportunity for more free shag Anyone I welcome in Dan 56.
I welcome in AA Bowl run ins.
Interesting bull runs.
That, like cool runnings like Bull Term, is a combination of the both.
TLC checks into the game.
I'll throw it out once again, Who leads the Nets franchise all time in, uh, blocks all time Who leads the franchise? Tell me yet free swag.
You'll get a hat.
You'll get a T shirt.
You'll get something on behalf of the We got next podcast as Vucevic's drives rises up, gets that to go, and we'll take a look here if they're gonna call it against Tori on Prince or Spencer Dinwiddie.
Vucevic's will go to the line with a chance that convert a three point play and obviously trying to bite into this lead a little bit.
Stands at 14 right now.
Tori on Princeton.
So it looks like it does go against him, and this can get you back down to 13 which virtuous connects on.
So so far they've managed, and we know whether the Vucevic's storms, so to speak.
He was quiet one of five in the first half.
Now three of seven, though starting to get a little bit of a head of steam.
Here we'll see a Spencer Dinwiddie drives and kicks to Garrett Temple.
Thinks about, then rises up from three, and it is bank guarantees.
Ebola three. He's knocking it down from the outside.
He continues to have a nice night for himself that'll give him now 10 points on the evening on a four of five shooting performance.
Nets are 10 or 2148% for 20 for 20% for the Orlando magic from deep, and it's has his pocket picked by TLC, but he will get hit with that foul call.
I think he had it initially and then tried to fight off, and it's when he was gonna go over and try to get that loose scoop Tim when he picked up an assist on that three ball as well and now has five on the game, 73 57 from deep front room missing Spencer Dinwiddie on the rebound.
Looks to push tempo kicks outside the TLC.
Gets it right back over, though, and reset.
This offense here takes his man off the dribble and the foul will get cold there.
It's going to go against Aaron Gordon, who does not appreciate it, but I think there it looked like, you know, did what He had the advantage driving to the basket, try to get his body back out in front of him and came up just a little bit late side out here, it will be Temple taking the odd amounts way and don't quite something out there Now will be so Temple of the Inbounds play gets a dispenser.
Duminy uses the Jared on screen works in the lane probing Roman kicks outside the tourney on Prince crosses up.
Aaron Gordon rises up and can not get that one to go.
Orlando, by the way, is in the bonus here at the 5 50 marks.
They have a lot of opportunities to make up ground here at the line.
Little push shot in the lane.
Quick transition bucket there. Four.
Vucevic's and the Orlando Magic and the Nets lead is again sitting there.
Spencer didn't win.
He kicks it out to the corner and a Taurean Prince but its hive out, called here by Kenny Yak. Instance.
Just want to take a beat, get themselves back into rhythm.
And make sure I was just about the highlight of a 14 point gain advantage here.
Obviously a great opportunity tohave some success at pushing Orlando further from you before you head to the fourth quarter, where you looked so hopefully taken the wind out of their sails and move towards victory.
This quarter here is 1918 so Orlando obviously has played this one close, losing just one point in terms of the overall score card here.
But again, Spencer Dinwiddie, now nine of 15 4 of eight from beyond the arc.
Five assists, 22 points.
Leading this team temple giving you 10 Alan giving you 10 8 points kicked in from Tori on Prince right now as well.
So just a really great overall performance from this unit.
You go inside the overall starting numbers yet you had 11 from Revert 5 12 I think you can live with that right now. Again.
I'm gonna break down some of these numbers here.
Ah, in the podcast episode that will come out tomorrow as faras livered shot selection over 48 minutes.
But again, you know, did what he's been leading this team.
You get a nice country contribution there from from Temple off the bench with 10 points and then seven from Harris, eight from Tori on Prince again.
Taurean Prince, three of eight shooting from the field.
Knocked down a three ball 37 from Joe Harris.
Knock down the three ball one of two.
So you know, salad contributions.
And when you're up the way they are, obviously expect anyone to be in the plus as faras overall performance, but just really nice balance.
Four steals on the roster.
In the starting rotation, you talk about those assist numbers again.
Caris Levert with five along with Spencer, Damon Allen has three.
So good ball movement, finding open shooters, even in the bench.
One for Jordan to for Temple, one for TLC as well.
So you just like what you're getting from this unit overall, because every single one of these players, this is what we talked about, right? By the end of the game, you expect that Spencer damage and caress liver gonna be leading the team in terms of shot selection.
But this is more balanced than we've seen in some other games where, you know, 12 attempts for Laverne, 15 for dignity.
Then you're talking about Harrison prints splitting those just listening that's miked up from care Silver.
Nice to hear some of things.
We take a little bit of a pause here.
It's nice to hear some of those in game conversations.
Good support from carrots, pervert communication with Jared Allen in terms of when he wants to get that ball tonight and then defensively talking about, we're gonna go underneath all these screens.
Don't worry about trying to sag back.
You know, in terms of where you're gonna line yourself up defensively, I'm sure sleep under and try to prevent the shot from the outside.
Al you to DeAndre Jordan from Spencer Dinwiddie did not go and then quickly the other way, Fultz drives and kicks outside the 40 a Wilson Chandler steps up there, but top of the key knocked down for Vucevic's.
So he has certainly come alive here in the third quarter.
Now, as he stands with what will be 12 points once they tally that number up Spencer did.
When he works out of the corner, kicks outside to Garrett Temple extra feet over the TLC, takes 48 off the dribble.
Pass it over to Garrett Temple, who gathers it quickly, rises up but cannot get that three ball to go touches up and over the back backboard so we'll have a side out here, 73 62.
So back down to an 11 point lead.
Five minute mark.
Nets have weathered the bit of a push here from Orlando.
They need to again stymie Orlando's offensive rhythm and then look to get themselves a couple of nice shots there Spencer Dinwiddie does a nice job, Doesn't found tries to make it difficult for 40 a, but he gets himself on the interior.
That's a seven run now for Orlando here in the third and then a turnover here by Brooklyn.
Back the other way.
It comes the foul by TLC against Ross, who converts and will now go live with a chance to turn.
Earn the extra bucket in what will cut this Lee now now nine and could be a 10 run here for the Orlando Magic.
And just like that, 66 73 a seven point game Camila, as low as six knocks it down 4 40 to go a lot of time to play.
Both teams are now in the bonus.
It'll run as we mentioned here for Orlando, and that's what gets them right back into this one whistle on the outside here.
As Wilson Chandler tried to work his way through and ends up getting the foul pick up here, we'll take a look here, free throws, coming as we said in the bonus.
So we were talking about how, when the Nets were up big, the disparity disparity at the line didn't matter, however.
Now 10 of 12 for Atlanta, just one of four for Brooklyn as Ding when he knocks down the first.
And this is where over the last 4 33 in the third you want try to write that ship.
Get those numbers a little bit closer together here and feel like you can go to the fourth quarter again.
Push this thing back out to double digits.
I feel like anything under 10 as did what he converts Both is really gonna be a win for Orlando.
If they're, they're down by nine or less.
Here, going in the fourth quarter, they're going to feel like they did their job here.
From the second and third quarters.
Vucevic's in the lane, Push shot goes DeAndre.
Jordan will inbounds here, and we've highlighted this already before.
Big third quarter for Vucevic's here as well Now put himself up to 14 points on the night Spencer dominated.
The land, kicks outside to Garrett Temple.
He drives and kicks out the TLC.
Tri State loses the dribble, finds Garrett Temple back in the corner.
He's got Ross defending against them.
Now Vucevic's comes over to gather with him big out, swinging over to Spencer again when you were just three to shoot.
He'll rise up on boats.
Doesn't get it to go, but a great job I care of by Garrett Temple, who, not stabbing the three picks up the rebound, works himself to the corner, turns right around.
Bang goes Garrett in the Temple of Threes.
And he continues a very nice performance off the bench for the Brooklyn Nets and gets this lead back out to nine.
So a huge shot there for Garrett Temple at the 3 40 mark in the third answered right back by Ross on the three ball.
And just like that, excuse me as Garrett and the Temple of Threes is more than just a movie, it's a trilogy.
He is now knock down back to back three pointers for Brooklyn, and now the Nets aren't 48% from the outside. 48.
Responds **** back, though, So the Orlando Magic are not going away here, continuing to find these looks from the outside as they maintain this six point deficit dimwit into the lane kicks outside the temple over back to didn't Woody.
Now Temple offers the screen instead dim when he drives and kicks to the corner, and Wilson Chandler once again comes up off the mark, has yet to convert one of his three point looks.
Folks goes into the lane and gets bodied up by DeAndre Jordan there, who left his feet hard foul and it will be full.
It's going the line shooting, too.
13 A 17 is Orlando in this quarter.
77% Nets, also with 17 attempts.
So both teams shooting lights out.
Really? In the quarter, missing on that free throw was full.
So this is a five point game is he? Went one of 2 81 76 to 30.
Mark Garrett Temple uses yonder door screen kicks outside the Wilson Chandler hell down, driving the lane scoop up and in, gets his first basket of the game.
And on an evening when he is 004 from the three point line, he goes ahead and tries to find another way to impact.
This game took the feed from Temple and converted 23 to 15 advantage for the bench scoring here.
Nets had a 50 point bench performance on the last game over the weekend on Saturday night here, Ross rises up over TLC from three.
Can't get it to go.
Cares the verge.
Check back into the game.
We will reset these lives here momentarily for you as Laverne hands off to Wilson.
Chandler gets it right back.
Cross up behind the back.
Use of the Wilson Chandler screen now has the switch against Aaron Gordon kicks out to the corner, gets it right back from Garrett Temple, then feeds him down low over the TLC.
Can't get it to go.
But DeAndre Jordan battles and we'll get this bowl to stay with Brooklyn as he went ahead and fought for that, they're on the interior, only black jersey in a sea of white.
Yet he manages to get this one here.
Had Aaron Gordon there, had Carter Williams there and continued the tip tip tip until this one goes off of Carter Williams hand.
Even though it may have technically come off of DeAndre Jordan right now, it stands as a coal.
They converted back the other way, so three missed there, and the layup attempt does not go for T l C on the inbounds and just like that, Unfortunately, Nets come up empty here.
It's a 6.7 point game.
Excuse me, 83 to 76 one and done therefore Orlando Wilson Chandler on the rebound.
Hands off the carousel.
He will drive the lane and get that little runner to go.
85 76 9 point advantage one minute remaining in the third.
As I said, though, still a win for Orlando if you're trailing by single digits going in the fourth quarter, that being said as tight as this got here, I think the Nets would be relatively okay is Ross tries it on TLC and converts pulling themselves back within seven.
Let's have a gentlemen's two for one opportunity, 48 seconds to go here with 18 on the shot clock.
Avert and Garrett Temple work the two man game.
While Garrett Temple couldn't get that one to go.
DeAndre Jordan thought he had the rebound put back, demanded a foul call there and did not appreciate it.
And now Orlando cut this back to a two possession game here with a two pointer.
Instead, they pull up from deep, and it is Aaron Gordon knocking it down.
Ah, four point game here, 30 seconds to go in the third.
The Nets had had as much as a 19 point advantage in this one.
It has shrunk now just a four.
A six second shot clock to game clock difference avert on the ball and calling for a screen.
He gets it set by Garrett Temple.
The switch comes briefly now.
Oliver tries, elevates the mid won't go and DeAndre Jordan grabs that one.
It slams it through with authority and a little bit of a bark on his bite as he felt like he had earned a foul on the previous possession.
Slams this one back through and pushes the advantage out to six.
The three ball will not go four.
They're looking to get that one to go.
Cannot convert it, and we'll take a look here at this replay.
No, that isn't clean.
Put back flush for DeAndre Jordan.
So the Nets wrap up the quarter again.
I'd say overall 14 point deficit shut down here shrunk down.
Just a six for the Orlando Magic sled to feel pretty good about it.
That being said, in spite of the miss, their of Iowa vert, DeAndre Jordan.
Get that one put back through and they can head to the fourth quarter feeling at least like they've gotten themselves back into a little bit of that rhythm.
We'll see how far Caris Levert extends.
Spencer dimly has also obviously been very effective here.
And Ken Day push this this lead back up.
So where they had had it for so long from the second quarter into much of the third quarter as well.
Double digit 14 point advantage.
For the most part here we had highlighted how relatively quiet night you had Vucevic's shooting.
Just 105 in the first half on.
And then excuse me as I just gather myself.
It was the 2nd 3rd quarter performs.
Excuse me by Vucetich.
One of five in the first half.
Six of 10 now from the field.
It has really brought this team right back into it.
Aaron Gordon hitting that Big three ball there in the closing moments of the third as well.
We take a little step away here.
We'll talk percentages.
We'll talk numbers.
Hello to Texas guy.
Texas guy. Texas 12.
How are you, sir? Thank you.
for the for the joint broadcast.
Thank you for the follow.
I give you the opportunity if you're a Brooklyn Nets fan who leaves the Brooklyn Nets franchise all time in rebounds, answer the question.
Get yourselves in Brooklyn, that swag.
If you're not a next fan, tell me who you're a fan of.
I'll send something your way.
That's the kind of presence we want to have your own SportsCastr.
And in spite of the fact that the viewership is unwilling to respond to this very generous and easy trivia question opportunity I submitted out to you. Good, sir.
I provide you with the follow back as well, a brief step away here before we begin our fourth quarter coverage and to see if the Brooklyn Nets can hold off Orlando as the look ahead to that Washington Wizards matchup on Wednesday.
And what would mark an opportunity for the Nets to a 26 and 29 right now? Chance for them to get just 21 game under 528 29 before they'll have back to back games at the end of the week Friday and Saturday against Atlanta and Miami.
We were back in just a moment.
He missed their from D from Carousel vert.
Ah, in the mid range.
Shot does not go, but DeAndre Jordan once again battles here on the interior against Bomba.
Grab that rebound and then they'll call the tie up.
So DeAndre, Jordan and Bomba will go up here on the jump ball.
But again, DeAndre Jordan's been playing with a nice bit of edge to him as he gets this tip over to Caris.
Levert Pervert gets into Joe Harris.
Joe Harris thinks about the kickback instead, drives on the inside and gets eaten up there, and they want the goaltending call here.
The entire Brooklyn tents and print bench, including Kenny Atkinson, wants that call.
Instead, it goes the other way, and Ross takes Harris off the dribble.
87 83 4 point game.
We'll take a look here to see if that one gets reviewed it all, as Kenny Atkinson is barking.
Then the turnover time out called here by Brooklyn two point Game, 87 85 Kenny Atkinson is, as they like to say, a little hot under that collar.
Jordan's having extensive conversation with him right now.
The referee offers him the bench.
We're gonna look back at this one here, just a miss.
So the replay may have looked a little bit different, you know, in real time.
But instead it looked like maybe affected by Ross, and then it bounces off there and beyond.
Me gets a fingertip to it, so it's actually the clean play.
But maybe this could be one of those things that the Nets used the trigger there.
Now they follow that up after Orlando's make was compounded by a turnover that went ahead and led to a dunk for Carter Williams.
And just like that, the Nets have their lead cut down to two here in the third quarter.
Let's go ahead and talk news and notes around this match up here.
We have highlighted the previous game between Orlando and the Brooklyn Nets.
We talked about the three point shooting from the Brooklyn Nets over this eight and four run in the previous 12 games.
Ah, now Vucevic's average 20 points and 11 rebounds since the beginning of the new year, January 1.
Ah, he is one of just five players to average 20 points and 10 rebounds over that time period along with Yonas Aziakou Po, the Greek freak also can throw in Joel and beat John Collins and Nikola Jokic, so that's pretty nice company to be keeping.
And obviously, as we talked about how well things that seemingly been going in the first quarter for the Nets first half of the Nets excuse me that third quarter, where boosted, its really started to turn it on, especially offensively nice little mid game or mid range game.
Working for him has paid massive dividends as now.
He has a great chance here, too, of course.
Continue to hit that mark off 20 and 10 taking a look.
It's on his rebounds.
Do let's see where does Vucevic's sit here from a rebound standpoint already already excusing with eight rebounds.
So eight and 14 right now for him feels like he's right on the edge of getting himself to that 20 intent Mark.
And just in case you're wondering, uh, DeAndre Jordan did pick up that technical foul, arguing that situation there and then because a part of that the Orlando Magic have now pulled themselves within 1 87 86 let's go ahead and reset these alliances the Nets get into their offensive set here for Brooklyn as a kick, Their from Caris.
Levert is off the mark.
Turn over looking for Wilson Chandler on the outside.
So you know you have Laverne Wilson Chandler accompanied by Joe Harris, DeAndre Jordan and Garrett Temple.
So represents that power defense of line up here for Brooklyn as the backdoor feed goes to Ross and Orlando has the lead 88 87.
They now have an eight run here in the fourth Caris Levert with a nice dump off in the reverse jam for DeAndre Jordan.
So I was just highlighting here, and we'll see how it plays out as the Nets were.
Ah, plus one when the power defense of lineup off Wilson, Chandler, Garrett Temple and DeAndre Jordan were on the floor together here.
So let's see how this plays out care.
Sorry, Garrett Temple.
They're playing the front side of Aaron Gordon.
Nobody on the weak side to help him.
They're an easy flush.
For Aaron Gordon, 90 89.
This is looks like it has all the makings of a back and forth contest here.
Livered hands off the Wilson Chandler gets that bull Ray Pacto has Carter Williams defending.
He will cross up and rise from three, banking it in.
I don't know if he called Glass, but it's still going to go and caress Lover gets the Nets back out in front here with a nice three ball from the outside.
This one little cross up there tipped away.
Wilson Chandler comes up the loose ball.
He'll drop it off to Garrett Temple flashing through the lane.
Nice job there between Garrett Temple on Wilson, Chandler and as we highlight, this is that powerful defense of set for the Nets that now force the turnover here off the feed.
Ross, though good from three, struggled early in this one.
Seems like he's finding his rhythm.
Had a nice backdoor cut on the previous possession.
Now it gets a nice look from the outside.
Pulls Brooklyn back within one Caris.
Levert used the DeAndre Jordan screen, now pulls back up from three.
And bang Caris Levert.
He is rising up from beyond the arc right now and doing a **** fine job of it as he looks to carry this team right now.
The start of the fourth quarter Nets up by 4 97 93 on three ball for Ross's good.
Orlando has refused to go away.
Go back to that third quarter.
Garrett Temple knocked down back to back threes, answered by the combination of Ross and another member of the Orlando Magic.
As again assuming Caris.
Levert tests the waters for his heat check and comes up empty there on a three bowl.
So 97 96 remains a one point game right now.
You would say the one liability defensively Apple is gonna be Joe Harris.

As once again, we highlight Jared Allen, the aggressive denial at the rim against Bruce Ceviche.
We, of course, knows the game where the Nets had a 14 point advantage at halftime saw that cut into down to this six going to the fourth quarter.
They now trail by one here.
So obviously, things have been trending in the wrong direction.
From a Brooklyn standpoint, however, one of the biggest components of this would be that the Nets are shooting 47% from three, which is, of course, otherworldly.
And yet a team that struggled and was under 20% after the first quarter.
Orlando now shooting 37 a half percent from beyond the arc.
Ross, a big component of that come back stretch 50% from the field for the Orlando Magic, 49% for the Nets.
So nearly a dead heat, their Orlando trailing in rebounds, 44 37.
The turnovers, as we always say, protect that basketball nets have 12 to this 120.
94 The Orlando Magic.
As we recalled at three in the 1st 3 in the second, they had a handful. Three.
Morris, You being the third clean fourth quarter here so far for Orlando and then for Brooklyn, unfortunately, have picked up a handful more here.
There's a couple of their careless passes, and then, at one point you saw carries the Virgin get caught down the lane really caught a jumble.
They're lost control of a little bit.
And then because he was surrounded by a handful of Orlando Magic defenders, turned that one over as well.
Inside these numbers, we talk about how Gordon again we mentioned it, thought his 15 and 1/2 number in terms of his overall output was going to be something you could easily take the over on.
He has 22 knocked down two or 33 pointers here in the second half, which is certainly helped him.
And the Orlando Magic, 48 with 21 points, has been a nice performs for them.
Vucevic's had that good stretch has gone quiet again here, 14 points obviously denied at the rim here.
When you talk about the the presence of Jared Allen on some of those interior looks, but 13 points from Ennis as well.
Ah, five from the fault is that a pretty quiet night? Just two of eight shooting has come up with seven assists, However, though, so still has had an impact on this game.
You talk about the Brooklyn Nets, you know you need to get things going here down by 1404 to go.
Easy Opportunity, though, Settle yourself down.
Continue to work that offense.
So much of what has gone right for you in this game can continue to be the recipe for success here.

Their great job by Aaron Gordon blocks his midrange shot back the other way.
This one is Bank off the leg of Caris Levert by faults and then turned back around and a time out.
Taken here by Orlando, sensing that things were kind of coming a little bit little friend, a little frantic there on the offense events.
But let's have one point lead.
We came back in for the time of the 40 farm work.
We hit the time out here.
2308 Mark nets were down.
That's a net positive, as we like to say.
So we'll take a look here and see if the Nets can close out the last bit of this one.
As the highlights of Spencer didn't when he plays throughout this game Oh, and as we've done a couple times before in the past, will start to get ourselves set up for a recording session.
Here we welcome in.
Well, I don't know how to say what I say you cure in and in and D k Iran, and I gotta break it down, Kieran and Cure and ah ha ha! It's tricky with all those in the group together like that.
Thank you for coming on the podcast and, ah, shout out there anyone else who is coming in with us here as we close out what has turned out to be a very exciting game.
I thought the next would have a chance and it looked like they were going to pardon me for one moment.
Have every opportunity in the world to take advantage of some matchups here.
Get on the interior, which they did kick it from the outside, which they had a nice job there in the first happen into the third quarter. Even.
And yet a CZ you would expect, I guess.
Seventh and eighth seed teams that are close and record, you know, playing each other tight down the structure.
So back in on live game action, we've got faults and Orlando Magic on the ball over to Fornier, 48 rises up from three long and strong.
Harris and prints.
Think about fighting for it.
Prince will come down that readout over to Spencer Dinwiddie next with one point advantage to 50 to go here in the fourth quarter.
This is where you want to see a team pull out of W, right? You're winning the game with under three minutes.
Dim Woody over to Alan.
Alan feeds him right back, then sets the screen, did what he works inside his Vucetich on a switch here.
Boo ceviche playing very tight defense against a step back.
Three entrepreneur Well off the mark there.
So a nice job defensively by Orlando Vucevic's extended out that defense very well and then losing, getting ah size on the interior There was Vucevic's takes the feed from Aaron Gordon knocks that one down 1 10 109 advantage Orlando **** what he feeds that I had to caress the vert vert used the Jared Allen screen.
Now pulls back out has fornier autumn kicks over to Spencer Dinwiddie off the left side, full defending against them up and not in as it was Ross there who was behind Jared Allen and just bumped into his body from behind there to denying the easy look at the flush there at what would have been a beautiful assist from Spencer Dinwiddie.
Instead, Alan will go to the line shooting to here, and ah, well, I'm a little confused here.
Is there, maybe gonna say this a side out.
They're gonna call this a side out here for Brooklyn.
I don't know how you can argue that we're coming with the final two minutes to play here.
Uh, that one's a little confusing to May inbounds play.
Spencer Dinwiddie attacks can't get it to go, and Alan falls down to keep fighting for that rebound.
So a one point advantage here and there it is on the inside, 1 12 to 109 trailing by three.
That is Gordon, who fades away and connects 24 points for him.
Now that's trailing by 31 35 to go.
Dan, when he gets it over to Harris.
Feeds and **** back, though, didn't we? Now on the inside gets it up in over to the pro who knows right where to go straight through on the flush.
Seventh assists of the game for Spencer Dinwiddie.
Nets come back within one here, 1 12 toe, 1 11 as we have just 1 25 to go here in the fourth quarter.
Vucevic's on the inside, working.
Alan holds his ground, kicks outside to Gordon Gordon against Prince sets. Reset.
Sidestep knocks it down.
Gordon as 27 on the night now big performance from him.
Time out by the Brooklyn Nets won 15 to 1 11 trailing by 41 12 to go in the fourth and Nets and Kenny Atkinson.
We'll need to figure out a way to get themselves back into this game here, down for not back into.
But obviously when you have the advantage that you did in the first half is not the way you want to see the second half of action go.
Nevertheless, here's where you stand.
Can you get the job done? A pretty step away here before we come back in with the final 1 12 in the fourth.
They're sorry have myself muted there for a moment.
Gustav. It's Mrs on the baseline.
To shoot him when he has the ball in hand 19 seconds ago.
Eight on the shot clock.
Cuts it inside to nine on the interior kick outside.
Story on Prince.
Can't get it to go.
And with just 98.
8 seconds on the clock that fouls committed there A great find out of the interior by Spencer.
Fantastic defense against Caris Levert, who cannot get that one to go on the inside now.
It's just great defense.
I'm not gonna knock liver it on this one.
It's Aaron Gordon comes sweeping through again Lover tries the hang and get that one up.
Joe Harrison was kind of that.
Loose ball remains a two point deficit for the Brooklyn Nets, the trial 1 15 to 1 13 with 8.
8 seconds on the shot clock.
Now they will have an opportunity here.
Neither team is in the bonus yet, so there is a foul to give in.
Orlando throws the ball out of bounds on the inbounds play, looking for 48.
Orlando throws that ball clean across the court, bouncing out of bounds.
Orlando's head coaches I rate right now as Ah, Steve Clifford claims he was trying to call a time out.
There doesn't matter.
His team threw it away.
You so the Nets will get this ball back here.
They show the replays of Ah, Clipper.
Just trying to have that conversation there about whether or not he was trying to call a timeout was yelling over to his team.
Unclear Right now, Nevertheless, the Brooklyn Nets will have an opportunity here.
Down by two, the question will become What are you trying to draw up here? If you are Kenny Atkinson and the Brooklyn Nets? See Clifford.
I mean, if you want to go.
And Justin, thankfully, by replaying what you saw from it, looks like Clifford is being authentic in the fact that he, like he was crying, is crying out for the timeout on Just did not get hurt.
Now, however, what the problem is here is that now he's saying, I was saying Time out, time out.
If you look at the replay, he's not making that gesture.
You see him audibly yelling something, but I don't know if you're looking at him, you know, calling necessarily for that from the official.
So we will say, Hey, pointing to play here.
Nets trailing by two.
Vucevic's will come out.
Williams will come in for defensive purposes, as the Nets have Laverty Harris didn't Woody Prince and Ah Wilson Chandler at the center position.
Right now in bounds, comes to Harris.
Gives it the dribble.
Hands off, delivered kicks outside.
Prince rises up.
Can't get it to go, and that will do it.
Unfortunate loss for the Brooklyn Nets had a big advantage in this one.
That play, they're never quite gets itself into sequence for the Nets.
They full to the Orlando Magic.
Let's talk the numbers real quick here.
I'll come back in tomorrow evening and diving on some of the conversations after this game, but the end of the day.
Disappointing loss for Brooklyn, 1 15 to 1 13 It is a game where the Orlando Magic end up finishing, shooting 49% from the field and 38 from beyond the arc.
We have highlighted how the Nets were knocking down an average of 14 threes to just nine for their opposition over this eight and 12 4 run over the last 12 games.
Nets knocked down just 16 of There's kind of came a little bit down to reality back on Earth there in the second half from three, a lot of opportunities here down the stretch, unable just to convert them, however.
And, ah, at the end of the day, that's shooting 16 of 37 43% from me on the Ark, just six of eight, only eight free throw attempts in this 1 17 for Orlando.
That obviously looms large in this one as well.
You can talk about those turnovers 12 for the Nets, but Orlando ones of finishing with 10 themselves, so not necessarily as big a deal include that big one there at the end and towards the end there of regulation.
At the end of the day, this felt like a game.
We're like we said Orlando Aaron Gordon could have a big game finishes with 27 in spite of just a 16 point performance from Boozer, which was only three below his game is season average.
Right now, 21 from 48 was a big one.
And then, of course, Ross off the bench.
Big threes in the third quarter certainly spelled a little bit of doom here for the Brooklyn Nets.
That being said, we're gonna go ahead and check out of here.
This one disappointing loss.
Orlando climbs a little bit closer from that eighth into that seventh seed.
You know, in terms of the battling, they're trying to overtake the Brooklyn Nets Nets will have.
As we mentioned a game coming up here on Wednesday night, they will be looking to turn around here 26 30.
So they're gonna come a Ray back here on Wednesday, though, as we mentioned, they had two games.
Then at Friday and Saturday night to keep dealing, took Leo to me full look at their schedule here, and that's going to be Washington On Lenz.
They followed up by back to back Atlanta and Miami.
So we're talking about the roster of the depth.
How are you gonna extend out maybe some of these players when you talk about these back to back nights? We keep an eye on that as well.
Nevertheless, it is a 1 15 to 1 13 loss for the Brooklyn Nets.
They full to 26 30 on this season.
