Magic Look to Re-group Against Celts

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Play time is over.

The trick shots that had become a ritual after Orlando Magic

practices were gone Monday. So were the usual jokes and playful


They were telling signs of just how much has changed in the

Eastern Conference finals after the Boston Celtics stole home-court

advantage, shattering the Magic's playoff invincibility.

Orlando will now have to overcome a loss for the first time in

more than six weeks when the Magic face the Celtics in Game 2 of

the Eastern Conference finals Tuesday night.

The Magic haven't lost consecutive home games all season.

They're banking on that streak continuing, or their hopes of

redeeming last year's NBA finals loss to the Los Angeles Lakers

could be crushed.
