2010 East Conf Finals Game 5: Celtics @ Magic
 
I'm excited as hell for this game and I really hope Boston finishes Orlando off. Not sure if it will happen, because when you are at Home, your shots fall more and are easier to make than on the road. Hopefully the overtime game didn't affect Boston too much either. Go Celtics, eliminate them, don't be the first NBA team to allow a team to win a series despite starting 0-3.

Can't wait as well. I just can't see Orlando losing 3 straight home games. This game will be extremely tough just as all the others but I think they squeak it out at the end again. Don't let the season end tomorrow! Go Magic!

Cs wins, I dont think they'll be as relaxed tonight. That said, I dont really care if Boston wins in 5 or 6, as long as those loses wakes them up and prepares better for meeting Lakers (yes, I still dont think Los Suns will upset LA). Before GM4 I said I'm afraid if Celtics sweep Magic, they'll could be complacent when facing Lakers, which could cost a game or two, I'm glad it happened earlier, long winning streaks builds overconfidence.

Celtics by 10+.

Perkins, Sheed, Davis, KG....box the big man out and if that fails then execute the hack-a-Howard play.

No excuses for those three OT offensive put-backs in Game 4. Just terrible interior defense.

Why not exactly???
I know Orlando is a good home team but Boston is really tough on the road. Orl losing the first 2 games doesn't rally have an impact because game 5 is isolated from them.

Just percentages I guess. I understand they are all isolated events but while the Celtics are a great road team, the Magic are also a great home team. They hadn't lost 2x in a row this whole season let alone 3. It could certainly happen don't get me wrong, I would just be extremely, extremely surprised.

I think the game will come down to who wants it more...Orlando wanted it more in Game 4 and that's why they won. Boston wanted it more from Games 1-3 and that's why they won in all of them. It's about will....Boston has to go back to the way they played in Game 3 if they want to win Game 5.

Even though Boston is great on the road, when you are at home, you are more comfortable making shots.

Well, before game 4, the series was all but over. Now Orlando, has atleast a little life, they have to take it 1 game at a time. Boston is still in a commanding position having beaten the Magic in Orlando twice plus they'd still have another chance to close out the series at home if they lose.

Should be a great game.

Boston will win by a good 8-10 points.

After the lost in game four, they will make the necessary adjustments.

It was a close game 4, with the magic's getting away with all kinds of crap, like moving screens and elbows.

Well, why would Orlando get away with things in Boston that they wouldn't at home?

i want the celtics to win, but ball hog pierce has ruined team harmony, you can sense the tension between PP v (-Doc Rondo and Ray) the Magic may hold home court for this game, but if the real Celtics show up they can win on the road, and rest up for the finals. :applause:

Orlando is taking this. Dwight will hustler and have a game like last time. Jameer Nelson will score 20 and VC will play with more heart.
