Nets vs. Magic: 3 Good Stats

After every Nets game this season, we will have 3 good and bad stats that jump off of the box score.  First up are the 3 good stats from the Nets 105-90 loss to the Orlando Magic.

1. 17 Points, 7 for 8 Shooting, 6 Rebounds

In his first five games as a member of the Nets, Travis Outlaw has been inconsistent at best, but put up his best effort against the Magic.  Outlaw led the Nets in points, rebounds and was the only player to log at least 25 minutes without turning the ball over.

2. 10 for 22 From Beyond The Arc

There weren't many areas New Jersey outperformed Orlando on Friday night.  Shooting from long range was one of them.  The Magic were an effective 11-for-28 but the Nets were just a little better and it helped keep hope alive for the visitors throughout the game while they were dominated inside. 

Leading the way were Outlaw and Terrence Williams each shooting 3 for 4 from three.

3. 6 for 7 Shooting In 17 Minutes

Over the final 15 games of last season, Kris Humphries only attempted 7 or more shots 3 times.  Each of those games he played at least 23 minutes.  Against the Magic, when his number was called, he did what Brook Lopez was unable to do: score in the paint.

Considering how poorly Lopez was playing, it might not have been a bad idea to ride the hot hand and give Humphries a little more run.
