Boston vs Orlando NBA Game Day Call Cruising Celtics Visit Melting Magic

Boston vs Orlando NBA Game Day Call Cruising Celtics Visit Melting Magic
Teams headed in opposite directions meet when the Boston Celtics visit the Orlando Magic in National Basketball Association action tonight. The Celtics have been piling on the points during a five game winning streak while the Magic has lost all but one of their matches in the New Year. This NBA Eastern Conference clash is slated for 6:00 PM ET on January 31, 2016, at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. We don't see the Magic's meltdown ending here.

Boston Celtics: Scoring points at a historically high pace

Winners of a season high five straight, and eight of their last ten games, Boston owns second place in the Atlantic Division and they are fifth overall in the Eastern Conference playoff race. The Celtics are on quit a roll as they have scored at least 100 points in eleven straight matches. Cracking the century ceiling tonight would match the twelve game run the Celtics posted during the 1995-96 NBA season. Boston is averaging 104.4 points per game which is their highest scoring pace since the 1991-92 campaign. This is the second of a home-and-home series after the Celtics lit up the Magic 113-94 in Boston on Friday. We like the Boys from Beantown in this fight in Central Florida.

Orlando Magic: Early season success has melted like chocolate in the Central Florida sun

Decent out of the 2015-16 NBA staring gate, Orlando closed out the 2015 portion of their schedule with a 19-13 record, the Magic have been in meltdown mode during the New Year. Orlando closes out a January to forget tonight as the Magic are 1-12 this month and they are riding an eight-game losing streak. The losing run has pushed Orlando from fifth in the East at the end of December to twelfth overall heading into action tonight. The Disneyland Dudes posted a 110-91 win over Boston to close out November so the season series is tied at one victory each as these clubs play the third of four matches this year. Orlando’s sub-par play recently includes five straight losses at home.

Celtics vs Magic NBA Prediction: Boston has been fairly solid at both ends of the floor as their 104.6 PPG scored ranks fifth and their 100.3 PPG allowed is the tenth best mark in the NBA. Orlando is a tick better than Boston on defense allowing 99.9 PPG but their offense ranks 23rd overall scoring just 98.7 points per game. Orlando’s numbers on defense are little misleading as the Magic have allowed 106.6 PPG during their eight-game losing streak. Back Boston with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted on the NBA betting board at SportsInteraction.
