The Boston Celtics have been up and down in recent times, but there is no reason why they cannot pick up their 35th win of the season this Wednesday, as they take on the Orlando Magic at Amway Center.
The Celtics did not look all that great against the Trailblazers in their last game losing by a 10 point margin with turnovers being a rough spot for them, as they were careless with the ball turning it over 18 times.
Jayson Tatum was great in that game putting up 33 points in yet another solid performance, but the Celtics have to be happy that they got Evan Fournier going in that game scoring 21 points which was great giving how hit and miss he has been this year.
That last loss was extra costly as well, with Tatum and Jaylen Brown colliding and getting hurt which was a moment that had Celtics fans on the edge of their seats as their season hung in the balance. Luckily for them Tatum will be okay, but Jaylen Brown is expected to miss some time with a leg injury so he will miss out here which is obviously a costly loss.
Although this year has been a forgettable one for the Magic, they have put a nice little run together going 3 and 1 in their last 4 games showing that they are still more then willing to play for pride and are by no means an easy victory.
One guy I would look out for is Mo Bamba at center, who has really made an impact off the bench and when he starts, as he looks like their best player at times and he really will need to put in a heroic effort here to get the Magic the win.
The Orlando Magic are having even more injuries that impact this game which at this point does not even seem possible as they have had the absolute worst luck with injuries this year. T-Ross will miss out here with a back injury as well as Chuma Okeke and Michael Carter-Williams.
Free Boston Celtics vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
I do think the Celtics will get the job done here, but I do not see them being overly enthused about this game, as I do see them overlooking the Orlando Magic given the caliber of games they have been playing lately.
The Orlando Magic will likely look to slow things down as much as possible and I do not think the Celtics are going to push the pace much which should help in reducing possessions.
The loss of Jaylen Brown is also very important to the total of this game, as he is the guy who can really pick up the slack if Tatum has a rough night shooting or getting in foul trouble, so I do not see the Celtics being their best on offense without Brown.
The Celtics do not have a bad defense either and they should at the very least be able to keep the Orlando Magic’s shooting efficiency in check even if they do not come into this game with their A-game.
