I feel like Willem Dafoe's mirrored reflection in Spider-Man 2: "AVENGE ME!" That early-January loss to the Nets was tough to swallow, so the Magic really need to give them what-for in this matchup tonight. New Jersey is 20-28 and 2-8 in its last 10, yet has a half-game lead on the Bulls for the East's final playoff spot. In the East, winning 42% of your games is good enough.

The Nets let their opponents get to the foul line more than just about any other team, so everyone needs to drive the ball to the basket tonight. Be aggressive, guys.

Jameer Nelson Watch: Stan Van Gundy told John Denton he doesn't feel obligated to play Nelson just because Nelson signed a fat contract extension in the offseason.
