View From The Opposing Bench: Magic Basketball

Thumbnail: The men in green left Boston with their first victory of the season, and they have some nice company in that category. The Bulls and Knicks have just one win each as well. Of course, I know it is early, but how much longer will we be able to say that the Celtics are in the same jurisdiction as those two teams?

Unfortunately, the Beantown and Windy City basketball teams have another number in common. The Celtics and Bulls are the two worst fourth-quarter teams this season. While Chicago owns a -5.2 margin per final quarter, Boston is at a whopping -11! You read that correctly: the Celtics are being outscored by a combined 55 points in their 2013-14 fourth quarters.

They now are in Florida for back-to-back games, the first of which is against a team that outscored Doc Rivers and the Clippers by 10 points over the final 12 minutes a couple days ago. With that 98-90 victory at the Amway Center, Orlando brings a perfect 3-0 home record into this game with the Celtics.

The main reason for the Magic’s impressive win against one of the league’s best teams was Nikola Vucevic, who got the “Whoa Boy!” fantasy line of the night on the Starters for his 30 points and 21 rebounds. In addition, Vucevic has averaged 14.5 points, 12.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game in his four career games against the Celtics in which he has accumulated at least 20 minutes played.

Prediction: The Celtics will be seeing a lot of the Magic over the next four days, so it will be important to contain the center from Montenegro. Although Boston has won the last eight meetings with Orlando, I do not think they can make it nine in a row.

Magic 101, Celtics 94

  • The Cardinal

    Sully has had a great game thru 3 Qtrs.and we've scored on some nice assists.

  • The Cardinal

    Leave Bradley in, take Crawford out in a one point game knowing the other team will have to foul. Hmmm…me skeptical?

    I'm a bit worried about Faverani having 3 below-average games after his first 2 games which were all we could ask for from a center.
