Can The Orlando Magic Complete An Improbable Comeback?
The Orlando Magc were all but counted out of the 2010 NBA Eastern Conference Finals after being down 3-0 to the Boston Celtics, on the verge of a sweep. Since then, the Magic have perservered, winning the last two games in impressive fashion, led by Jameer Nelson making the most out of pick and roll situations, as well as Dwight Howard dominating the glass.
In my previous post, I stated that the Magic needed to incorporate Rashard Lewis, as well as Jameer Nelson needing to step up for the Magic to win. The team has done both, and the success is showing.
History has shown that not one of the 93 teams to fall to 3-0 in a series has been able to overcome the deficit, but the Magic are beginning to look like they may be able to break that mold.
Rashard Lewis, Matt Barnes, Jameer Nelson, and Dwight Howard all seem to be back in a rhythm, and seem to be gaining momentum going into game six.
The Magic may have an advantage on the inside for game six, as Glen Davis is suffering from a concussion, and Kendrick Perkins is facing a one-game suspension after receiving two technical fouls in Wednesday's game five.
If the Magic can continue to play like they have in the past two games, don't be surprised to see a dramatic game seven. In Orlando.
