Orlando Magic vs New Jersey Nets: Live Reaction, Analysis and Video

Joshua SextonSenior Analyst IIMarch 16, 2012

Welcome to the live blog for the Friday night matchup between the Orlando Magic and New Jersey Nets.

The game tonight had the potential to be one of the most interesting of the season, considering it was believed by some fans and pundits that Dwight Howard would be traded to the Nets before yesterday's trade deadline.

To the surprise of many, Howard announced he would be staying with the Magic through next season. So instead of watching Howard's old team play his new team, fans are treated to a run-of-the-mill Magic vs. Nets game.

But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Any basketball is good basketball, right?  So stay tuned for live reaction, analysis and video for tonight's game. Tipoff is set for 7:00 ET.
