New Jersey Nets vs. Orlando Magic: Superman Returns

The New Jersey Nets (3-5) will try to avenge last week's loss when they welcome the Orlando Magic (5-3) to Newark on Saturday night. 

The Nets are looking to win two in a row for the second time this season after first doing it to open the season 2-0.  Devin Harris helped New Jersey put an end to their five game losing streak on Wednesday with 31 points against the Cleveland Cavaliers

The Magic have dropped two straight games, both at home, to the Utah Jazz and Toronto Magic.  They are led by Dwight Howard and his 22.3 points and 10.6 rebounds per game.

New Jersey has lost three straight at home and 10 of their last 12 against the Magic.  Orlando's last game against the Nets was last Friday when Howard dominated Brook Lopez and the rest of the front line with 30 points and 16 rebounds on the way to a 105-90 win.

After the game the Nets will jump on a plane for a four-game West coast swing.
