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 (27-48): Forward Terrence Ross is enjoying his late-season stint with Orlando after a trade from Toronto last month, averaging 13.2 points in 17 starts, up from 10.4 with the Raptors. He had 23 points in the loss to the Thunder, scored at least 14 in six straight games and is shooting 56.4 percent from the floor over his last four contests. Center Nikola Vucevic recorded five double-doubles in his last six games, although he shot 3-of-14 in Wednesday’s loss.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (48-27): Boston shot 39.8 percent against the Bucks, its lowest mark since March 5 and worst at home since Feb. 27. Isaiah Thomas was the outlier by going 9-of-17 – including 5-of-9 from 3-point range to set a new franchise record for triples in a season (223) – en route to 32 points. Avery Bradley is averaging 10 points while making 1-of-10 3-pointers since returning from a one-game layoff (flu), but he had 23 points in his only game against the Magic this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Celtics listed as 11-point favorites versus the Magic, while the game’s total is sitting at 217.5.

The Boston Celtics will wrap up their longest homestand of the season while looking to keep pace in the race for the top spot in the Eastern Conference when they host the Orlando Magic on Friday. The Celtics won the first four of their six-game stay at TD Garden to seize first place in the East from the Cleveland Cavaliers, but a 103-100 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday made it a virtual tie entering Thursday’s action.

“It’s just a loss,” center Al Horford told reporters. “I feel like they jumped on us early, we fought our way back, we got into a good rhythm and just went back and forth and we just couldn’t make plays down the stretch.” Following the visit from the Magic, Boston heads to New York to take on the Knicks before returning home to host the Cavaliers in a matchup that should help decide who gets the top seed in the playoffs. The Celtics have taken 12 straight matchups at home against the Magic and won each of the first two meetings this season by 30 points, including a 128-98 victory on Jan. 27 in TD Garden. Orlando had no answer for Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook on Wednesday, as he went off for 57 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists in handing the Magic a 114-106 overtime defeat.

Boston lost its last outing, a 103-100 result against the Bucks on March 29. The Celtics failed to cover in that game as a -7.5-point favorite, while the 203 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Last time out for Orlando, they were a 114-106 loser as they battled the Thunder at home. The Magic failed to cover in the match as a +5-point underdog, while 220 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
