The sliding New Orleans Hornets will try to end their slump by beating the Orlando Magic this NBA lines Friday at the Amway Center in Florida.

The Hornets have lost their last four games in a row, a streak that included defeats to Western Conference playoff contenders - Oklahoma City Thunder (33-18) and Los Angeles Lakers (36-16).

However, their most recent two defeats were against teams with records .300 or less – the Minnesota Timberwolves (13-39) and the New Jersey Nets (16-37). Now, this NBA lines Friday, the Hornets are hoping that they can end their skid with a victory in Orlando.

Unfortunately for New Orleans, the Magic are playing exceptional basketball right now.

Nielson Notice: The Orlando Magic have won over 73% of their home games this season.

With an average of 100.1 points per game, Orlando ranks 11th overall in the NBA. They also sport the 5th best field goal percentage in the league at 52 percent.

The Magic have also been performing well from a defensive standpoint.

With an average of just 94.5 points allowed per game so far this NBA lines season, the Magic have positioned themselves as the 6th-best defense in the NBA. In additiona, Orlando has only allowed opposing teams to convert 44.3 percent of their field goals (5th).

Overall as the game progresses, I think that Orlando will score enough points so that the Hornets’ 25th-ranked offense won’t be able to catch up.

Brett’s Prediction: Orlando Magic: 106, New Orleans Hornets: 93


NBA Lines Pick: Orlando Magic (-9)
