The surging Orlando Magic routed the hapless Nets last night at IZOD Center. The final score: 95-70.

After starting the season 4-1, the Nets have now lost four straight. By contrast, the surging Magic (8-2) are winners of three in a row after last night\’s victory over New Jersey (4-5).

Once again, the Vince Carter-less Nets couldn\’t mount anything offensively against the Stan Van Gundy coached Magic even though the defense played well in spurts. It was more or less a repeat of the blowouts the Nets had experienced at the hands of others as of late.

Excessive turnovers (22) and very poor shooting all around — 25-84 (.298) from the field last night — continue to plague New Jersey. Coaching moves like Bostjan Nachbar for Nenad Krstic in the starting lineup didn\’t make much of a difference.

The Nets get to try it all over again tonight at the IZOD Center where tip-off is at 7:30pm. The opponent will be The Miami Heat who are coming off a one-point loss to the Boston Celtics after getting star Point-Guard Dwayne Wade back for the first time.*
