Boston Celtics Preview
The Boston Celtics have gone through many changes in recent months, both managerially and in their roster. They are expected to make the playoffs as they have established themselves as one of the East’s heavyweights.
However, they will first look to improve their first-round elimination in the 2021 playoffs. They faced the Brooklyn Nets super-team with few hands but managed to clinch a series victory, thanks to the brilliance of their franchise player.
Following the departure of Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier, and Tristan Thompson, the Boston Celtics acquired the likes of Dennis Schroder, Al Horford, and Josh Richardson. Jaylen Brown’s return from a wrist injury will also be a significant boost in his next season.
Orlando Magic Preview
The Orlando Magic were plagued with injuries in the 2020-21 NBA season, as were many other teams. However, they quickly chose to go down the rebuilding road, trading three of their oldest players for juniors and draft picks.
A completely healthy Magic team can compete, despite its lack of All-Star caliber players. While no one expects the team to make the playoffs, they should improve their final season’s performance, especially with the return of Jonathan Isaac.
Magic vs Celtics prediction
The Boston Celtics are by far the strongest team, but the Orlando Magic should put up a good fight. While the odds will always be against the Magic team due to their inexperience, they could pull off staggering victories.
However, a surprise is not a likely outcome in this confrontation. The Boston Celtics should show their dominance early on against the Orlando Magic.
