The Magic shot just 15-of-44 (34.1%) and have not made a three-pointer (0-of-four).

The Nets are 19-of-46 (41.3%) from the field and five-of-13 from beyond the arc (38.5%).

Point guard Deron Williams has 11 points, four rebounds and three assists.

The Nets led Friday night's game 50-35 at the half. They went on to win the game 107-68.
