After being left for dead following an embarrassing loss in Game 3, not many people expected to see the Orlando Magic play the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the 2010 NBA Eastern Conference Finals. The Magic, for lack of a better word, quit in Game 3 and didn’t put forth the effort and energy required to compete against the Celtics, let alone beat them. However, after playing well in Game 4 and really well in Game 5, Orlando has given themselves an opportunity to live to play another day, as long as they can beat Boston in Game 6 on the road.
Tonight’s game will be the toughest road test the Magic will have ever played this season, up to this point, without a doubt. There’s no guarantee that Orlando will win, though at least they put themselves in a position to have a chance.
What have the Magic done to extend the series to a Game 6?
