Boston’s winning streak has ended.
The Boston Celtics lost 98-113 in an away game against Orlando Magic in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season held at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, USA on the 24th (Korean time).
Boston’s one-two punch Jayson Tatum (26 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists) and Jaylen Brown (26 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists) fought hard, but they could not control the atmosphere in Orlando, where the main players performed evenly. Boston ended its nine-game winning streak, but maintained first place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 35-13 for the season.
On the other hand, Orlando scored double digits with Paulo Bankero (23 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists), Wendell Carter Jr. (21 points, 11 rebounds), Cole Anthony (18 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists), and Franz Wagner (15 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists). He scored goals and performed well. Jonathan Isaac (10 points, 3 rebounds), who returned to the court after 904 days, also contributed to the team’s victory.
From the first quarter, Boston struggled with the team as a whole. In the meantime, he allowed consecutive runs to Wagner, Bankero, and Anthony. Brown made three 3-pointers and struggled alone, but it was not enough, and the first quarter ended with 23-30. 메이저놀이터
In the second quarter, Boston’s fierce pursuit began. Even at the beginning of the second quarter, Orlando’s offense was not controlled and allowed a 14-point lead at one time, but Tatum drove in 12 points and succeeded in pursuit. Sam Houser and Peyton Pritchard started supporting shooting with 3-pointers, and Brown’s score was added to finish the first half with a score of 54-55.
The momentum Boston showed in the second quarter did not carry over into the second half. Derek White and Brown’s 3-point shot took the lead for a while, but Boston, whose defense collapsed, struggled with Orlando’s high-energy offense. He allowed three-pointers to Van Kerro and Isaac, and continued to allow runs to Bol Ball, Markel Fultz, and Anthony to set the mood.
In the fourth quarter, 79-88, Boston couldn’t stop laughing. Tatum’s three-point shot went on the chase, but he continued to allow Vankero and Wagner to shoot outside and failed to turn the tide. Boston, which even gave Carter Jr. a thrilling dunk at the end of the game, ended the winning streak by giving up the game.
