The Orlando Magic will get one more crack at the Boston Celtics before the Playoffs start on Wednesday. The game starts at 8:00 pm ET and can be seen on ESPN.

The Orlando Magic have faced the Boston Celtics twice this season already, and it was probably the worst two game stretch they've had against any opponent in a very long time. The first game, in Boston, was an absolute blowout that the Magic had very little influence over. The Magic only scored 56 points in that game, 31 fewer than Boston's 87. Just a few days later the Magic got another shot at the Celtics and jumped out to a huge lead, only to see Boston come all the way back in the second half and take a 91-83 win. I'm not really sure which one was worse to be honest. Can the Magic bounce back on Wednesday?
