=== Boston Celtics Team Report – November 29 ===

(Sports Network) – The struggling Boston Celtics try to halt a four-game
losing streak tonight, as they visit Steve Francis and the surprising Orlando
Magic at TD Waterhouse Centre.

On Sunday, the Celtics fell to the Miami Heat, 106-104, at AmericanAirlines
Arena. Raef LaFrentz poured in a season-high 21 points along with eight
rebounds for Boston, while Paul Pierce finished with 17 points, nine rebounds
and five assists in Boston’s fourth straight defeat.

Ricky Davis ended with 16 points in Sunday’s loss for Boston, while point
guard Gary Payton registered 15 points, six rebounds and two assists in 31
minutes of action.

Boston is just 1-4 on the road this season.

Last season, Boston won three of its four contests with the Magic. Overall,
the home team has won 10 of the last 12 games in this series. The Celtics have
lost three of four and four of their last six at Orlando.
