Friday’s Magic Word

Ben Q. Rock of Orlando Pinstriped Post: “Again, [Stan] Van Gundy has come under fire for his offense, which I don’t understand.

Second Look: Boston Celtics 96, Orlando Magic 84

Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “In the end, it was the beginning of the games that doomed the Orlando Magic and derailed their championship chase. […] The Celtics built upon early leads in three of their four victories, a tell-tale Game 3 rout that put the Magic in a still inescapable 0-3 hole. Playing catch-up all series, …

Friday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: ” ‘Ridiculous.’ That’s the word Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy used to describe a Boston Herald column in which Ron Borges labeled Dwight Howard as ‘a cheap-shot artist’ and advocated that the Boston Celtics attempt to impose ‘frontier justice’ on Howard in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals tonight.” George Diaz of …
