Saturday, January 12 finds the Boston Celtics facing the. Orlando Magic as they meet for the second time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Thursday, the Celtics got thrashed in Miami while the Magic last played Wednesday in a loss to the Jazz.
Last season, Boston took three of the four games while Orlando won the initial meeting this year. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Magic in 63 of their 112 matches.
Although the Celtics were playing on the second night in Miami they got stomped on by a Miami club who struggle to score.
The Celtics went on a 16-0 run in the second half but still trailed by 10 points and the Heat weathered the run to reestablish a 20 point differential.
Kyrie Irving led his Boston teammates with 22 points. Marcus Smart added 18 while Jayson Tatum and Marcus Morris each scored 17. No other Celtic scored in double-digits.
Coming into the Heat game the Celtics were the only team yet to lose in the New Year. Their offense has climbed into the top 10 (9th) and rank fourth defensively.
Aron Baynes (fourth metacarpal fracture, left hand) will be out until at least until the end of January.
In the loss at Utah, the Magic had four players score in double-digits with D.J. Augustin leading the way (23 points).
The trio of Nikola Vucevic (20), Aaron Gordon (18) and Terrence Ross (13) were the other Magic players hitting the mark.
Mo Bamba has a sore left foot which kept him out of the game versus the Jazz and he remains questionable to play Saturday against the Celtics.
Timofey Mozgov remains out recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee with no definitive timetable to return.
