celtics are not going to see kobe in the finals, up by 20 and only win by a lucky 4 point lead?

There was no question which team was better, although I liked Magics 4th quarter, but clutch Ray and Pierce sealed the deal. Since Howard wont have much better games during the series, its up to Jameer, Gortat and Carter to show up every game to have a chance, which is a bit unlikely.
Howard won't have much better games? Howard will rebound. Orlando not playing for 6 days hurt them this time. That was a physical game and there is no way you can simulate that in practice. Orlando has always been resilient and I have no reason to think they won't come back from this.

The Magic need to get over the mental hurdle in order to beat the Celtics. They've got all the pieces they need to win this series, but it doesn't look like they think they're good enough to win a 7 game series against them.

Game 1 was a defensive game. The Celts defensive won the game, but they were lossing it in the 4th quarter in the game. The Magic needs to make their shots. They had a couple of open shots, but the ball didn't go in. It should be a interesting series.

Because Howard is their lone rebounder so everyone gets back in time. Nelson has been playing incredible ball in the playoffs averaging 21 ppg on 51 percent shooting. They both do great things for their respective teams and Rondo's man to man defense will be taken away because of the pick and roll play of the Magic.

Advantage: Even

Barnes vs. Allen: Matt Barnes will probably start off on Allen then Reddick will get his run at him. Don't laugh because Reddick made Allens life hell last year in the playoffs.. He was all over him

Advantage: Slight Advantage Allen

VC vs. Pierce: Pierce has been up and down this post season, mostly down. Vince the past 2 years has had a field day against the Celtics and is extremely crafty with getting shots and getting in the lane.

Advantage: Moderate Advantage VC

Lewis vs. KG: KG has been playing incredible this post season and you know Orlando will have a game plan for him. Whenever Lewis is overmatched with a big PF Orlando always shades with Howard and Perkins being a non threat offensively will make it easier to neutralize KG. Lewis is one of the best shooters in the NBA and can get his shot against anyone. He will have his hands full with KG though.

Advantage: Moderate Advantage KG

Howard vs. Perkins: Perkins always plays Howard great on defense but Howard always plays great defense and is a great rebounder on both ends of the floor. Perkins is tough though and will battle him for everything he gets. But Howard impacts the game in so many ways (help defense, offensive rebounding, altering shots, blocking shots, pick and roll defense) that even though Perkins might/will hold his points down, that doesn't mean Perk has impacted the game nearly as much as Howard

Advantage: Big Advantage Orlando

Bench: Orlando has one of the best benches in the league with Williams, Reddick, Pietrus, Anderson, Gortat, and Bass. They usually go 10 deep and should the series go 6 to 7 games their advantage of going up against an older team will be apparent. Outside of Tony Allen, Glen Davis, and Rasheed Wallace, they really don't go too deep to their bench.

Advantage: Big Advantage Orlando

My Official Prediction: Orlando in 5 or 6.

sorry dr. insidehoops.

i just felt to point it out that howard let a lot of people down. it's cool.

man, this must really mess with the magic's mind. they haven't lost in a month so how the hell are they gonna deal with this?? boston is coming strong so there's no room to play around. you're in a "real" series now.

play some ball, man.. i still believe in y'all.

We can all appreciate your devotion to being a supposed hardcore Magic fan, but truth of the matter is, your homerism is excessive enough to the point it discredits and clouds your judgment as a general NBA fan.

Speaking of bandwagon fans... Boston is and has forever been one of the more established teams in the league in terms of fan base. Orlando, completely different story.

Overreaction is people saying Howard has no offensive game, and is not going to have an impact on this series. I have read that multiple times. Boston is not unbeatable at home so what do you want me to say? That Orlando is done for? Come on now I believe Orlando will win this series and I stick by that.

I thought that G1 was the most loseable game but this game was so up and down. Physical games like this are unpredictable especially when Orlando isn't executing. I didn't give much thought to Orlando not playing ball for 6 days then you throw them into a highly physical team that just played 3 days before.
