Game night preview

From the Magic press release:

Friday, Nov. 20. 8:00 p.m.
TD Banknorth Garden
Boston, MA

The Orlando Magic will travel to Boston on Friday for a re-match of the Eastern Conference Semifinals when they take on the Celtics at 8 p.m. ET on Sun Sports and ESPN. The national spotlight will be on Orlando as it attempts to prove that it can take down Boston even with its addition of Rasheed Wallace and a healthy Kevin Garnett. “We’re looking forward to playing those guys again,” Magic All-Star center Dwight Howard explained. “We know it’s going to be a dogfight. We’ve always had dogfights with Boston. It’s not going to be any different. It’s going to be a good matchup, but I think we can win that game.” While the Magic will be looking to prove themselves once again, the Celtics, on the other hand, will be looking for payback. The Magic became the first team to defeat Boston after it led 3-2 in a playoff series and just the fourth all-time to win a Game 7 on its home floor when they stormed TD Banknorth Garden and claimed a 101-82 Eastern Conference Semifinals series-clinching victory last postseason.

Here is the complete preview from Yahoo! Sports.

The Celtics are 6 point favorites.

    This game should be fun to watch. With rondo and jwill being up-tempo guards i expect there to be some running and gunning from both sides. I see depth being a problem for the celtics and i think the magic will win in a close tough game. The key will be if dwight can finally start to stay out of foul trouble and dominate the glass.
