The Orlando Magic host the Boston Celtics on Sunday, looking to build their first three-game winning streak of the season. Tipoff is set for 6 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 4 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Boston is off to a slow start in 2012/13, with a meager 7-6 record. It ranks 11th in offense and just 24th in defense, a stunning regression for a team which has never finished worse than fifth in defense since acquiring Kevin Garnett in 2007. The Celtics are coming off a 108-100 victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder, which win ended a two-game losing streak.

The Magic, after tumbling to a 3-7 start, have recovered with consecutive home wins against the Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers. Neither team presented as much of a challenge as Boston figures to.
