Nets’ season: The Brooklyn Nets are now placed 2nd in the NBA standings for Eastern Conference and if healthy, they are favorites to contend for the NBA Finals this season. James Harden has notched multiple triple-doubles and with Irving, he has racked up a bunch of wins this season.
Magic’s season: Magic is rebuilding right now and even though Vucevic has done his best to be a winner, the roster lacks the depth to compete for the Playoffs. Terrence Ross has also been in form recently but the team will need more from other players.

Harden has been in incredible form this season and has carried his team to the peaks. He is an offensive juggernaut and to top it off, he leads the league in APG. Harden’s PPG numbers may be down but he might even exert a bigger influence now with his elite passing and ability to take over games. Harden can be elected as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Uncle Drew is shooting at more than 50% and for a guard who averages 25PPG+ with this percentage means that he is having a record season. He has put up 30 points+ games too this year and he has shown the league that he is far from being done.
Vucevic has been an All-star level player for the Magic and he has been their mainstay offensively and in terms of rebounding the ball. Vucevic has become one of the best scoring big men and his ability to hit tough shots has helped him to become an offensive machine.
Fournier missed few games due to injury but he is back in full flow. Evan has continued to be a great scorer at the Guard position and his shooting enables him to create space for himself to finish at the rim too.
Terrence Ross: PPG: 15.6 RPG: 3.4 SPG: 1.1 PFP: 29
Ross is one of the best bench players who can score from the get-go and given consistent offense. Ross has had a great season for the Magic and had some big games too, he has averaged 21 PPG since the last 5 games.
Joe Harris: PPG: 15.1 RPG: 3.5 PFP: 26
Harris has played an amazing complementary in a team full of high-quality players and his 3-pt shooting makes Nets a more potent team night in and night out.
Dwayne Bacon: PPG: 10.2 RPG: 3.0 PFP: 14
Bacon is a decent shooter at the Forward position for the Magic and has performed his role well so far this season.
DeAndre Jordan: PPG: 7.5 RPG: 7.2 BPG: 1.5 PFP: 21
Michael Carter Williams: PPG: 7.6 RPG: 5.1 APG: 3.5 PFP: 23
PG: Kyrie Irving
SG: James Harden(SP)
SF: James Ennis
PF: Chuma Okeke, Al Farouq-Aminu
