Magic Reeling after Falling Behind O-2 to the Celts
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Magic coach Stan Van Gundy slipped into his
bed to watch film of his team's latest loss, figuring he'd doze off
It never happened.
Orlando's play lately tends to have that effect.
The Magic have put their dream season in peril heading into Game
3 of the Eastern Conference finals Saturday, facing an 0-2 hole
against the Boston Celtics
Only three teams have ever come back to win a best-of-seven
series after losing the first two games at home. The Magic have
never rallied from an 0-2 deficit – home or away – and the Celtics
have never lost a series with such a lead.
All-Star center Dwight Howard remains optimistic, and says that
the Magic have the mentality that “there's no reason to say we're
going down fighting, because we're not going down.”
