(46-22) Boston Celtics vs. Orlando Magic (21-48)
It’s an Eastern Conference showdown between two teams on the opposite ends of the standings on Friday night. The Boston Celtics make the trip to the Amway Center to take on the Orlando Magic.
This will be the fourth meeting between the two teams this year. The Celtics have won two of those three games.
After having such a hot start to the season the Boston Celtics seem to be going through some trying times as of late.
They come into this game having two losses in a row, and the last one was a killer. The Washington Wizards hit a three-pointer as time expired to tie it up, and then it took until double overtime before they finally lost the game.
One of the biggest problems for the Celtics has been their injury. Marcus Smart will be out for an extended period time and Kyrie Irving is doubtful for this game with a knee injury.
For the Celtics to win this game some of the bench guys are going to have to step up in a big way. This is a game they should win, but with the way they have been playing anything can happen.
They also can’t dig a hole in this game, or they will have some issue getting out of it and winning this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Orlando Magic who has had a terrible season, but they surprised a lot of people in the last game knocking off the Milwaukee Bucks.
The offense was clicking and that led to a 126-117 victory. The defense really still struggled in the game, but in this game the offense was enough to overcome it.
That gets us to the struggles this year for the Magic. The defense is giving up 109.6 points per game and even if they could drop that a few points a game the season could have probably turned out a lot different.
To win this game the Magic need to push the pace and make this a high scoring affair. With all the injuries for the Celtics they won’t have enough offense to keep up in a high paced game.
