Friday night takes us back to Boston where the Boston Celtics open up the weekend and put their undefeated home record on the line against the Orlando Magic here in this one. Both of these teams are having fantastic starts to the regular season, and both of them are in position to make a playoff appearance in the Eastern Conference this season, as long as they both remain healthy and consistent throughout the year. Both teams come into this game well above .500 throughout the early part of the regular season and both of them will be looking for a statement victory here in this one on Friday night in Boston. As the Orlando Magic and the Boston Celtics face off in one of the best games of the weekend here on Friday night.
The Orlando Magic are having a quality start throughout the early part of the year and they will look to maintain that momentum throughout this game on Friday night in Boston as well. They will also be the first team this season to beat Boston at TD Garden as Boston has opened up the season with double digit wins at home throughout the first month and a half of the regular season. If anyone can end that streak for the Boston Celtics, it is the Orlando Magic with the way they’ve been playing throughout the early part of the season. They come into this game with 16 victories through their first 23 games of the regular season and they will look for win number 17 of the year here on Friday night in Boston.
Their roster is made up of the perfect mix of young players and grizzled veterans that has led them to one of the best records in the league throughout the early part of the year. Orlando comes into this game with plenty of momentum as they currently find themselves on a two game winning streak after back-to-back victories against the Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Will look for a third consecutive victory when they hit the road to play the Boston Celtics here on Friday night. This is certainly an early season measuring stick game for the Orlando Magic, and they will find out just how much tender they can be this season, depending on how they perform in this game on Friday.

The Boston Celtics are having an incredible start to the regular season, and they will look to maintain that start with another quality performance here at home on Friday night against the Orlando Magic. Boston has already picked up a pair of victories at TD Garden this week with back-to-back wins over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now they will look to remain undefeated at home with another victory here in this one on Friday night against Orlando as well. They have been a legitimate contender of the last several seasons, but they have been unable to reach their ultimate goal of winning an NBA championship in that span as well.
As long as they remain healthy and consistent throughout the regular season, they will arguably be the favorites to win the NBA title into the postseason. Boston comes into this game with 18 victories through their first 23 games of the regular season and they will look for win number 19 here on Friday night at home against Orlando. They come into this game with plenty of momentum after grabbing two consecutive wins this week over a top Eastern Conference team like the Cleveland Cavaliers. A victory in this game for the Boston Celtics would further establish them as a legitimate contender this season.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Boston is 12-0 at home this season
