Pregame notes:

• Former Celtic E’Twaun Moore is averaging 11.1 points and shooting 43.9 percent from the 3-point line in 12 games for the Magic, six starts.

• The Magic are 28th in the NBA in scoring at 93.5 points per game..

• A few statistical notes: The Celtics are 1-5 when they trail after three quarters and 0-5 when opponents score 100 points. … Rondo has 10+ assists in 36 consecutive games and could tie John Stockton for second all-time tonight. The NBA record of 46 is held by Magic Johnson.
