The Celtics have really responded to their blowout loss to the Hawks last week. They’ve won four in a row and they have a great chance to make it five in a row here against the Magic tonight. These are games they must win if they are to return to the middle of the Eastern Conference standings. Their winning streak has catapulted them to the eighth seed and brought them so many games over .500.
How to watch Boston Celtics at Orlando Magic today:
Game date: February 6, 2022
Game time: 6:00 p.m. Eastern time
TV: NBA League Pass Canal 8
They are coming off a 102-93 victory against the Pustons, where they were led by their best player, Jayson Tatum, who played almost 30 minutes and scored 24 points to lead his team. They’re playing their best basketball of the season, but they’re hoping they’ll add one more piece before the Feb. 10 trade deadline to make them a more legitimate contender.
The Magic have a long way to go in their build, but they’re also playing their best basketball of the season. They are led by Cole Anthony, who is averaging 17.9 points, and will probably need him to do more to pull off an upset despite playing at home. Orlando will be looking to bounce back from yesterday’s loss to the Grizzlies.
Look for them to try to be a thorn in Boston’s side.
