More Impressive Win: Nets or Clippers

Cohen’s Pick: Clippers

Forget comparing Brooklyn and L.A. and trying to determine who has the better squad – that will be determined as the season progresses – it’s the way the Magic beat the Clippers that was most inspiring.

Unlike last season when it may have folded after relinquishing a 19-point lead, Orlando demonstrated a resolve that is aberrant for young rebuilding teams. Sure, blowout victories like the one against the Nets are empowering, but the Magic’s unwillingness to surrender when the pressure gets sky high is most revealing.
