Magic avoid 3-game skid, top Nets on Nelson basket
Question of the Day
Nelson redeemed himself after missing two free throws with 19 seconds to go and Orlando up one. Brook Lopez then made two foul shots to give New Jersey the lead with 11.5 seconds remaining, but Nelson sped down court and tossed in a floater while falling to his left.
Carter drove into the lane and slammed down a powerful dunk with 2:29 left to snap an 83-all tie, and he got to the basket again for a spinning layup and a four-point lead with 1:47 to go. Howard followed with two free throws for an 89-83 lead before New Jersey made one last push.
Orlando beat New Jersey for the 12th time in the last 15 meetings.
Howard had averaged 21.4 points and 15.1 rebounds against Lopez, who managed only 11.9 and 7.4. The last matchup was particularly one-sided, with Howard getting 30 points and 16 boards in a Nov. 5 victory, when Lopez missed his first 13 shots and finished with 10 points on 3-of-17 shooting.
Orlando extended the lead to 12 in the second but gave almost all of it back with poor shooting and worse defending. The Magic made only 33 percent in the period and allowed the Nets to shoot 61 percent, with Jordan Farmar’s 3-ppointer cutting it to 52-51 at halftime.
