Orlando Magic won in Boston once again and forces the Celtics to wait some more for revenge

The Boston Celtics tried Friday night to take revenge against Orlando Magic’s playoff elimination in the NBA last year, when Kevin Garnett was absent.

But now, with Kevin Garnett on the team and with a new acquisition like Rasheed Wallace, the Celtics still could not beat Magic, losing home with a score of 78-83.

Vince Carter, who transferred to Orlando this season, scored 10 out of the 26 points from the fourth quarter and he made a brilliant defensive game in a dispute between two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. Orlando scored the last five points of the game after Carter brought the scoreboard to an equal, 78-78.

“I like to play in important matches. I live for them,” said Carter in the end of the game.
