Boston Celtics had a close call last time when they faced Toronto Raptors, with the Celtics coming off with a 113-111 narrow win. Jason Tatum led the Celtics to this win with 20 points, 7 assists and 9 rebounds.
The All-star Jason Tatum and his young core of Celtics have always been trouble for other teams, He has formed an excellent partnership on the wings with Jaylen Brown. The duo is expected to deliver a championship with the Boston Celtics in the coming years.

Major contributions by Mohamed Bamba, who registered a double-double, with 16 points and 10 rebounds along with Wendall Carter Jr. who scored 14 points, 3 assists, 7 rebounds.
Magic is now 0-3 in the preseason and looks to change it by registering a win against the Boston Celtics. Since the departure of Aaron Gordon, who was traded to the Denver Nuggets, and Nikola Vucevic, who was traded to the Chicago Bulls, Orlando Magic seems to be a low seeded in the NBA regular season with really low chances of making it to the playoffs. They were last seen in the playoffs in the 2019 season where they played in the Orlando Disney Bubble.
