Boston finally saw their winning streak come to an end against Miami. They return home for this one looking to get right. I think they might be due for another fall but this is a matchup they can take advantage of. I don’t know how good this team is but they are so well coached.
Orlando is definitely in a funk having lost six in a row. They started off pretty good but now I think they are back at their level. This is not a playoff team for me.
The Magic are in a free fall. Six losses in a row are not all that surprising for a team that doesn’t have good guard play. It is hard to win consistently without it.
I am not a fan of Elfrid Payton but at least you know what you are getting with him. Not much offense but he can beat some guys off the dribble and play some defense.
Evan Fournier is the leading scorer on the team but he might be their fourth most talented player. They need to boost their other players not give him more opportunities if they really want to progress.
Aaron Gordon is one of those guys but his problem is that he has yet to develop any go to scoring moves. Everything he gets is off athleticism or the work of others. That has to change.
Jonathan Simmons might have been the pickup of the offseason. He was a role player with San Antonio but has proven he is good enough to start in the league.
The Boston winning streak was impressive. They won every which way but they were starting to show some leakage before the loss. The fact is that half of their roster have never been in the roles they are in right now so it might be asking a bit much for consistency beyond a few players.
I thought Kyrie Irving was going to explode this season and maybe lead the league in scoring, especially once Hayward went down. He is averaging less than he did in Cleveland and only third on the team in minutes. I love Brad Stevens as coach but maybe he is not sure how to use a player of his calibre.
I like the depth of the Celtics overall but inside they do not have much. They want to play Al Horford at the 4 where he is more comfortable but he does not create mismatches there. Aron Baynes is a reserve. I love his energy you want to give him less minutes not more, even if he is a fan favourite.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
How do the Celtics bounce back after losing for the first time since the first week of the season? The fact is they were not just winning they were covering a lot too.
At home they are 6-1-1 against the number. This one might actually be a buying opportunity. It would have probably been double digits if they had won.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Celtics -8.5
Even though Boston is off a loss the Magic is off 6 of them. I can make a case for fading Orlando in a lot of situations and certainly against one of the best teams in the league.
