Boston Celtics vs Orlando Magic Game 2 NBA Picks and Odds

Boston Celtics vs Orlando Magic Live Basketball Odds: The NBA match between Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic will kick off on May 18, 2010 at 8:30 PM ET. This match is scheduled at Amway Arena, Orlando, FL.

The trick shots that had become a ritual after Orlando Magic practices were gone Monday. So were the usual jokes and playful banter.

They were small but telling signs of just how much has changed in the Eastern Conference finals after the Boston Celtics took home-court advantage, shattering the Magic's playoff invincibility.

Orlando will now have to overcome a loss for the first time in more than six weeks when the Magic face the resurgent Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals Tuesday night.

Paul Pierce and the Celtics still have some gas left in the tank, as the 2008 NBA Finals MVP netted 22 points, grabbed nine rebounds and handed out five assists to lead Boston to a 92-88 wire-to-wire victory over the Orlando Magic in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

While the Magic are trying to prove they can overcome adversity, the Celtics are looking to regain their knockout punch.

The Celtics went ahead 65-45 in the third quarter. Even if the slow start was the rust of a six-day layoff, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy doesn't accept that as an excuse.
