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.”
