After three quarters at Amway Arena, the Orlando Magic lead the New Jersey Nets 75-62. Amid rampant Dwight Howard to New Jersey trade rumors, the All Star center has dominated on the glass, pulling down 19 rebounds in addition to 13 points. Howard is a team best +18 so far tonight. Jason Richardson is having his best game of the young season as well, pouring in 16 points thus far. Ryan Anderson has also added 15 points, hitting three from downtown.
Through three quarters, the Magic have held Deron Williams in check as one of the league's best point guards has struggled shooting, going one for eight from the field. The Nets are expected to be one of the worst teams in the East, and with Williams struggling, the Magic must close them out in the fourth quarter at home.
