Robin López contributed 20 points and 10 rebounds and Orlando Magic beat a decimated Brooklyn Nets 100-93 Saturday to end a seven-game losing streak.

Gary Harris added 17 units, Chuma Okeke added 15 and Franz Wagner 14 to help the Magic improve to 6-25.

Patty Mills led the Nets with 23 points. David Duke Jr. had 18 points and 14 boards, Blake Griffin added 17 points and Cam Thomas scored 15. Eastern Conference leading Brooklyn fell to 21-9. The Nets had won four in a row.

Brooklyn started the game with 10 players on the COVID-19 list, after Kyrie Irving, the star who just returned to training, and MVP candidate Kevin Durant entered sanitation protocols.

An hour before the game, the Nets announced that rookie forward Day’Ron Sharpe would join the protocols, as well as De’Andre Bembry, Bruce Brown, Jevon Carter, LaMarcus Aldridge, James, Johnson, Paul Millsap, and James Harden.

The Nets signed James Ennis III and Shaquille Harrison before the game.
