Evidently, even Jason Terry calling the Magic “terrible” couldn’t inspire lowly Orlando.

The Celtics guard had said, “Orlando is a team that, obviously you see them. I don’t want to give them any fuel, but they’re terrible.” He wasn’t wrong. Terry’s team trounced the Magic, 120-88, Saturday night in Orlando. It was the C’s eighth straight win over Orlando.

Helping the Celtics’ cause was the return of both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, both of which didn’t play the night before in Miami.

The duo got the Celtics off to a fast start, with the visitors never trailing. By the time halftime rolled around the C’s carried a 57-37 lead.
