Orlando Magic Make Ideal First-Round Opponent for Celtics in Wide-Open East (Podcast)The Boston Celtics have emerged as a legitimate playoff contender in the Eastern Conference, but it hasn’t been easy getting there.

Thanks to the emergence of now-starter Avery Bradley and the slow but steady development of role players like Greg Stiemsma, the C’s have scratched and clawed their way into the playoffs.

Now, they find themselves battling for home-court advantage in a likely first-round matchup with either the Atlanta Hawks or the banged-up Orlando Magic.

NESN.com’s Celtics beat writer Ben Watanabe stopped by the podcast to chat with NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette. Watanabe shares his thoughts on the C’s as they round out the regular season, and breaks down why the Celtics should be hoping to face the Magic come playoff time.
