Nets look to slow Magic's Vucevic in rematch

Nikola Vucevic is off to a spectacular start, but when the Orlando center turned in the most productive game of his career on Friday, the Magic wound up losing to the Brooklyn Nets.

Four nights after scoring a career-high 41 points, Vucevic and the Magic host the Nets on Tuesday night in a matchup of teams trying to improve their records to 3-1.

Vucevic is averaging 27.7 points and 10.7 rebounds on 68 percent shooting from the field (34 of 50), including 50 percent from 3-point range (7 of 14). By comparison, Vucevic scored 35 points in the first games of last season when Orlando began 0-3.
