May 4: Magic at Celtics Game 1 (Round 2)
 
Orlando at Boston, 8 p.m. ET -- The AP reports: The Celtics played a record seven overtime periods through six games of their first-round series against Chicago, and then beat the Bulls in Game 7 to advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Magic. The defending champions had just one day off to rest up for Game 1 of the second round on Monday night at the new Boston Garden... Boston and Orlando split their four-game regular-season series, a record that is of little consolation for the Celtics because Kevin Garnett missed one and played 16 minutes in the other before aggravating the right knee injury that is expected to keep him out for the duration of the playoffs. He is expected to have surgery as soon as itís clear he wonít be ready to help in the postseason... The Magic have their own injuries. Guard Courtney Lee is recovering from surgery on a fractured sinus that he injured in Game 5 against the 76ers. He has been cleared to play with a protective mask, but he is expected to miss at least the first two games of the Celtics series. J.J. Redick is expected to start in his place.

DISCUSS THE GAME!

rayray/rondo vs alston/redick... fuhgettaboud it!!

boston better be quick on their closeouts, dont want to give orlando any daylight on the perimeter.
here's hoping perkins can stay out of foul trouble, without perkins, dwight eats anyone else alive

Good luck to big baby and Perkins guarding Dwight. Going to be tough for them this series.

Really hoping the refs call Dwight fairly for once, will give Boston a much better chance at victory. Because the problem for Boston in this series is mainly the lack of qualified bench bigmen, a problem that will grow too large to overcome if Perkins and Big Baby get in foul trouble.

Boston's backcourt dominates Orlando's backcourt.
Orlando's frontcourt dominates Boston's frontcourt.
This should be fun to watch. :cheers: Go Magic.

You really think stern and the refs are going to let him do anything except pick up early fouls?

Howard has a lot to learn about post offense, and fundamentals
