Orlando came up close in Cleveland in the middle of the week but lost another game.
It’s now looking more and more like the Magic will get the first overall pick in this summer’s draft, or that it will at least have the greatest chance of winning it in the lottery.
There is only one need for Orlando: talent. The Magic will take the best prospect available, which I believe is DeAndre Ayton of Arizona. There is also Trae Young and a win player out in Europe who people are talking about.
To me though, Ayton has the best potential with the sort of floor height you look for in a number one pick. His size and athleticism alone should be enough to make him at least close to a double-double guy in the pros.
Aaron Gordon is probably the only keeper on the roster and even he might have to get paid before the Magic really want to. Orlando has been in the initial stages of rebuild for many, many seasons now.
The Celtics were still led by Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo when the Magic were as far along in its rebuild as it is now.
Since then, Boston has competed for a couple more Eastern Conference Finals, tore the team down and built a new winner.
But two losses in a row have the Celtics within shouting distance of the Raptors, who are still a game behind in the loss column (and potentially two if Toronto loses on Saturday night).
So for as good as the Celtics’ season has been, a division title is no guarantee. It does look like Boston should finish no worse than second in the Eastern Conference, even if Toronto does catch up.
The Celtics have already beaten the Magic badly twice this season. This one should be number three.
