The #Orlando Magic defeated the #Brooklyn Nets with a score of 125-121 on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida. Rondae Hollis Jefferson had a great game for the Nets. He contributed 18 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes. He also shot the ball very well at 75 percent, but that was not enough to defeat Orlando. The Magic now have a 3 -1 record for this regular season.

D'Angelo Russell continues strong showing

Everyone expected D'Angelo Russell to have a good season this year, but certainly not this good. He had another monstrous game against the Nets in which he contributed 29 points, five rebounds, one assist, and two steals in 30 minutes.

He shot 38 percent from the field, 44 percent from beyond the arc, and 88 percent from the #Free Throw Line. Russell has averaged 21 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.7 steals, and seven assists in his first four games of the regular season. Russell and the Nets will now shift their focus to their Wednesday game versus the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Chris LeVert had an all-around game

Chris LeVert did a little bit of everything against the Orlando Magic. He contributed 15 points, eight rebounds, and five assists in 27 minutes. He shot 36.5 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from beyond the arc, and 100 percent from the three-point line. Chris LeVert will have plenty of playing time [VIDEO] this season with Jeremy Lin out. He will have to step up and show just how good his skills are.

Fournier scores 28 points

Evan Fournier also had a great game against the Nets.

He was able to contribute 28 points, six rebounds, four assists, and three steals in 36 minutes. He shot 60 percent from the field, 40 percent from beyond the arc, and he made all eight of his free throw shots. Fournier continues to be one of the core options for Orlando. The Magic lost to the Nets Friday, but they bounced back with this win.

Aaron Gordon records a career-high

Aaron Gordon had the best game of his career against the Brooklyn Nets. He contributed 41 points (career high), 14 rebounds, and two assists in 36 minutes. Gordon went 14-of-18 from the field, 5-of-5 from beyond the arc, and 8-of-10 from the free throw line.

After not playing in their previous two games against the Nets and Cavaliers, Gordon came back with a frenzy. He was extremely efficient in scoring his career-high. Gordon is now the only player in Orlando Magic history to score 40+ points and go 5-of-5 from behind the arc. If he can continue to play this well, we may likely see him in the all-star game this February.
