This Monday night showdown features two Eastern Conference teams playing for the first time this season. This game will be played in Boston and it is sure to be a packed house as the city prepares to host the World Series the next day.
Last year the Celtics won the season series against the Magic three games to one and will look to win the first meeting of this season as well. The Celtics earned a win last time they took the court, while the Magic are on a two game losing streak after a loss to Philadelphia.
As mentioned, the Magic lost to the Sixers this past Saturday 115-116. They played a great as a big underdog, but just were not able to come away with a win. They will get another shot against a very talented team when they travel to Boston.
Against the Sixers, the Magic had three standout performances that kept them in the game. First was Evan Fournier. He led the team with 31 points and shot 12 of 23 from the field. He also made 6 of his 10 three point shots. On top of that, he grabbed 4 rebounds and 3 assists.
Next was Nikola Vucevic. The Magic big man poured in 27 points and shot 10 of 15 from the field. He also went 4 of 4 from behind the arc. In addition to those stats, he had 13 rebounds and 12 assist to give himself a triple-double on the night.
Lastly was of course Aaron Gordon. Gordon added 20 points in this game and shot 7 of 12 from the field. Gordon had 12 rebounds which gave him a double-double.
Defensively the Sixers will need to see improvement if they are to make any noise this year. They allowed the Sixers to shoot 47.9% from the field. The Magic even out-rebounded the Sixers, but could not do enough to slow down Embiid an allowed JJ Redick to hit a 3 with 17 second remaining to seal the win for Philadelphia.
The Celtics earned their second win of the season with a win over the New York Knicks Saturday night. This game was much closer than probably expected as the Celtics only won 103-101. They will need to play a bit better as Orlando comes to town with a squad that has potential.
Jayson Tatum was the standout for the Celtics as he scored 24 points and collected 14 rebounds. He shot 8 of 15 on the night and went 2 of 3 from three point range. The Celtics will definitely need this kind of production all season long if they are to make a run for another NBA title.
Defensively the Celtics did a nice job to hold the Knicks to 41.4% from the field. They also forced the Knicks into turning the ball over 16 times. Look for the Celtics to continue playing solid defense as the NBA season continues to roll on.
