It’s All About the Pick and Roll

Even though the Orlando Magic won last night in a thrilling game that went to overtime and avoided getting swept, the odds are still completely in the Boston Celtics’ favor to advance to the Finals sooner or later — NBA teams trailing 3-0 in a best-of-seven series are 0-93 in those series. But if the …

Second Look: Orlando Magic 96, Boston Celtics 92 (OT)

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “The Orlando Magic were perhaps due some luck in the land of the shamrocks. And with two minutes, 42 seconds left in their season, point guard Jameer Nelson tossed up a 3-point shot that somehow banked in off the glass. Nothing but hope. And that’s what the Magic have to bank on …

Monday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Once again, Boston Celtics center Kendrick Perkins says his team is “locked-in” and focused heading into a playoff game against the Orlando Magic. [...] Perkins made similar comments in the hours before Game 3, and we all know how that contest turned out. The first quarter ended with Boston ahead 27-12, and Orlando …

There’s Defense, and Then There’s the Boston Celtics’ Defense

Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images Via ESPN Stats and Information: The key for the Celtics in the series has been their ability to guard the [Orlando] Magic one-on-one in the paint allowing their defenders to stay at home on Orlando’s shooters and forcing them to make plays. The Celtics’ interior defenders have held the Magic …

Sneak Preview: Orlando Magic at Boston Celtics, Game 4

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Historical evidence indicates the Orlando Magic are vacation-bound, unable to change the course of the series against the Boston Celtics. But maybe tonight they can change — or erase — an unflattering image that could dog them into the summer and beyond after Saturday night’s Boston Massacre.” George Diaz of the Orlando …

But with Los Angeles’ Byron Scott and Magic Johnson out with hamstring injuries, the Bad Boy Pistons won the championship in a four-game sweep. That win avenged …
