The Boston Celtics enter Saturday's game against the Orlando Magic needing one victory to secure at least the seventh playoff seed in the Eastern Conference, and to thus avoid a first-round matchup against the top-seeded Miami Heat. Celtics guard Jason Terry thus dubbed Saturday's contest a "must-win" for his Celtics, according to Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston. Of the Magic, Terry said, "I don’t want to give them any fuel, but they’re terrible."

Before Saturday's tipoff, the media asked Magic coach Jacque Vaughn to respond. Do Terry's comments matter to Vaughn?

"Not one bit," Vaughn said. "We'll start five guys, they'll start five guys, and we'll go play."

Vaughn and Terry were teammates on the Atlanta Hawks in 2001/02 and again in 2003/04.
