Including Wednesday night’s contest against the Orlando Magic, the Brooklyn Nets have eight games remaining on the schedule. Throughout the season, this team has played terrific basketball but also atrocious basketball. It’s the growing pains that come with a young team.

This meeting with Orlando is the fourth and final time these teams will match up. The Nets have won two of the first three games. Brooklyn, however, is riding a three-game losing streak and have won just three of their last 10 games. It’s been a struggle, mainly because one aspect of the game has hurt them more than anything else.
