The eighth-seeded Orlando Magic take on the third-seeded Boston Celtics in an early evening contest. Boston won both previous contests on January 24th (109-98) and February 5th (116-100).
Orlando won their first two seeded games versus the Nets and Kings but have lost three-in-a-row versus the Pacers, Raptors, and 76ers.
With the Wizards loss to the Pelicans, the Orlando Magic clinched a playoff berth and there will not be a play-in tournament in the Eastern Conference.
And while they trail the seventh place Nets by 1.5 games (two in the loss column) things could get very interesting as the final games play out. Orlando and Brooklyn each have three games remaining with one against each other.
The other two games for the Nets are the Clippers and Blazers while the Magic play this match and the Pelicans.
The scheduling should favor Orlando, however, if the Nets win one of their three remaining games it would force the Magic to win all three based on the win percentage odds now favoring Brooklyn.
In the loss to the 76ers, Nikola Vucevic delivered a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds. Evan Fournier (22), D.J. Augustin (16), James Ennis III (14), and Markelle Fultz (13) delivered double-figure scoring.
Aaron Gordon (hamstring) and Michael Carter-Williams (foot) are questionable.
Boston is 2-3 in their seeding matches with losses to the Bucks and Heat who were playing the second game of a back-to-back without Jimmy Butler.
The Celtics victories were against the Blazers, Nets, and Raptors.
The Celtics ended the Raptors seven-game win streak and broke through offensively on the team who had been the best defensively in the bubble.
Seven players scored in double-figures as they tallied 122 points.
In the defeat of the Raptors, Jaylen Brown led all scorers with 20 points.
Jayson Tatum (18), Kemba Walker (17), Brad Wanamaker (15), Daniel Theis (11), Semi Ojeleye (11), and Robert Williams III (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
NBA Betting Trends:
- ORL are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games.
- Over is 7-2 in ORL last 9 vs. Eastern Conference.
- Under is 6-2-1 in BOS last 9 vs. NBA Southeast.
Free Orlando Magic vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
A Raptors victory or Celtics loss will cement the second seed. Boston has the easier schedule facing the Magic, Grizzlies, and Wizards. Toronto has a back-to-back versus the Grizzlies and Bucks followed by the 76ers and Nuggets.
Every team the Raptors face is invested in winning for seeding purposes except the Bucks. Still, the Raptors would have to lose all four games with Boston winning all three for the teams to swap positions.
. And, I’m not sure why the Magic keep vocalizing how badly they want to play the Raptors – it’s chalkboard material.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Celtics -6.5
Celtics were clicking offensively and now their defense is catching up, so the Magic needs Gordon back if they want any chance of winning.
***NOTE*** In case you missed it…When the 2020 NBA 16-team playoff field is set, the NBA Playoffs will proceed in a traditional conference-based format with four rounds and best-of-seven series in each round. The 2020 NBA Finals will end no later than Oct. 13.
