[BOSTON] — The Boston Celtics played host to the Orlando Magic last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 117 to 116 C's victory. The win bumps Boston's record up to 49-27 on the season, while the loss drags Orlando's down to 27-49. Though a win's a win and Celtics fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from Aaron Gordon led all players in the contest and his 32 points, 16 rebounds, 1 assists, 2 blocks and 1 steals in 36 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Gordon, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Celtics. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Orlando back in the win column before too long.

Also pegged for the loss was Elfrid Payton, but one might be reluctant to blame him directly either. Payton's 12 points, 9 rebounds and 15 assists were appreciated but ultimately for nought.

Boston's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Magic, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the C's will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling C's will be a date with the while the visiting Magic will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
