The Celtics complete their Orlando Summer League play with a Friday the 13th matchup with the host Orlando Magic.  The Celtics are hoping to bounce back from their first loss, a 93-79 beating by the Detroit Pistons while the Magic are hoping to keep the momentum going from their double overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers.  

The Magic are led by their first round draft pick, Andrew Nicholson,  who is averaging 14.8 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.  Other players to watch are center Kyle O'Quinn (9.5 ppg, 5.5 rpg), PG Kevin Anderson (8.5 ppg, 3.5 apg), and forward Justin Harper (11.3ppg, 5.3 rpg). 
The Celtics have been led by their first round pick, Jared Sullinger (13.8 ppg, 8.3 rpg), who has shown great fundamentals, a soft touch and an ability to score around the basket.  Kris Joseph (11.0 ppg, 6.8 rpg), has also been impressive for the Celtics, showing he belongs in the rotation with his solid all around play.  Also playing well for the Celtics are E'Twaun Moore (13.0 ppg, 3.0 apg), JaJuan Johnson (9.8 ppg, 5.5 rpg) and Dionte Christmas (10.0 ppg, 6.5 rpg, and 4.0 apg).

Hopefully the Celtics come out strong and play well in this one to finish the Orlando Summer League on a high note before heading out west for the Vegas Summer League next week.
