Boston Orlando Game 5

  1. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 5: Does one good game deserve another?

    May 27, 2010, 9:50 AM EST

    Here’s what we learned after the game last night: Stan Van Gundy hates Rasheed Wallace in a good way, the Magic get how hard Game 6 will be, and Big Baby is always a little bit loopy.  

  2. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic: Game 6 or bust for Boston

    May 27, 2010, 9:13 AM EST

    Give credit to the Magic — a lot of teams would have just rolled over after losing three straight games and meekly surrendered their season. I’m looking at you, Atlanta. The Magic showed some fight, caught a couple breaks and won Game 4 in overtime. Then they came out and threw a knockout punch. A…

  3. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 5: Magic find their form, pull within game of Celtics

    You can talk about Perkins’ suspension. You can talk about Rajon Rondo’s second consecutive sub-par game. You can talk about Garnett and Pierce both struggling from the field.

  4. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Rashard Lewis not feeling good on, off court

    May 26, 2010, 6:56 PM EST

  5. NBA Playoffs, Celtic Magic Game 5: It's all about the pick-and-roll

    May 26, 2010, 3:45 PM EST

    The numbers tell the story: In the first three games of the series the Magic ran 33 pick-and-roll plays. In Game 4 they ran 43. And won.(via Eddy Rivera) And these weren’t just your standard screens. They were staggered double screens, with Rashard Lewis setting a first screen before Jameer Nelson came off that one…

  6. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics Game 5: Vince Carter should do the exact same thing he did last game, only completely different and much better

    May 26, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    Vince Carter had no redeemable value for the Magic in Game 4. He wasn’t scoring well, and finished with just three points on 1-for-9 shooting. He wasn’t making plays for his teammates, even if he wasn’t necessarily a ball-stopper. He wasn’t hitting the boards particularly hard, and he certainly wasn’t making any significant contributions on…
