The fans at TD Garden will be treated to a game between the Orlando Magic and the Boston Celtics when they take their seats on Friday.

ABOUT THE MAGIC (18-29): Fournier, the team’s leading scorer (17.0), has missed six games in a row, while Meeks is out indefinitely following thumb surgery and Augustin is day-to-day. Point guard Elfrid Payton has been forced to pick up increased minutes, playing at least 37 minutes in three straight games after reaching that mark just four times through the first 44 contests. Augustin scored a team-high 15 points in the 30-point loss to Boston earlier in the season.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (27-18): Al Horford followed up a 22-point effort in a loss at Washington with 20 points, nine assists, three steals and two blocks in the win over Houston, doing most of it while playing through a groin injury. “I’m fine,” Horford told reporters. “I don’t know. I just felt something around my groin area. But we’ll see how it is (Wednesday) morning.” While Horford is probable, guard Avery Bradley (Achilles) is expected to miss his fifth straight game.

Oddsmakers currently have the Celtics listed as 9-point favorites versus the Magic, while the game’s total is sitting at 214.

Boston won its last outing, a 120-109 result against the Rockets on January 25. The Celtics covered in that game as a +4-point underdog, while the 229 combined points took the game PUSH the total.

The Magic were a 100-92 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Bulls. They failed to cover the +3-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (192) made winners of UNDER bettors.

The Boston Celtics avoided a four-game losing streak with one of their biggest wins of the season and now eye a soft portion of the schedule, beginning Friday at home against the Orlando Magic. The Celtics, who play nine of their next 12 games against teams that entered Thursday with a losing record, snapped their three-game slide with a 120-109 home win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.

“Three-game losing streak. A really good team in Houston coming in here with a really good player like James Harden. You could say that was the biggest win,” guard Isaiah Thomas told the media after scoring 38 points in the win over the Rockets. “Hopefully it gives us more confidence and we can find a rhythm and keep playing this way.” Boston has won 11 straight at home over the Magic and it picked up its most lopsided win of the season at Orlando on Dec. 7, a 117-87 rout that came while Thomas was sidelined with a groin injury. That result kicked off an 8-17 swoon for the Magic, who capped a three-game homestand with a 100-92 loss to Chicago on Tuesday. Guards Evan Fournier (foot), Jodie Meeks (thumb) and D.J. Augustin (ankle) all missed the contest as Orlando fell for the ninth time in 11 games.
