The Orlando Magic (17-29) returns to town to face the NBA-best Boston Celtics (35-12).
But the Magic will get another big return Monday night. Jonathan Isaac is active and is expected to play on a minutes restriction for the first time since Aug. 2, 2020 … 904 days ago.
With Isaac back, the Magic’s depth continues to grow and its ability to defend. Isaac was a plus defender before his major injuries and is expected to contribute the most in that category.
The Magic is also looking for the season series win over the Celtics after it won both meetings in Boston back in December. The Celtics won the first meeting in the Magic home opener on Oct. 22 and hope to repeat that result again this evening.
Here’s a look at the information you need to know for tonight’s game …
