Keys to the Game: Celtics vs Magic (November 24, 2017)
Back on Track:
Yes, it was tough to see the win streak end. However, it was bound to happen. Celtics, it is time to show the league that you were not just hot. Show them that you are a real team. Show the league that you belong at or near the top. Right the ship, get back on track, and get a W.
Magic Big Men:
Much like the last time around, the Celtics will need to play the Magic bigs well. If they both (Gordon and Vucevic) have good games ,the Celtics will have a tough time stopping Orlando. Last time they played, the Celtics X'd out Vucevic, and Gordon had a good game. One of the two can do whatever they want, but total big man domination reeks of a Celtics defeat.
Irving played alright on Wednesday. However, the Celtics just lost and ended a great streak. They will be looking to lean on their superstar tonight. I believe Irving is going to be the tell-tale of this game. Prediction: 23 or less points for the PG tonight, Celtics lose. 24 or more, Celtics win.
