Vince Carter wonders how the Magic can break through the Celtics defense.

The Celtics are the first team to challenge the Magic and give them a real test in these playoffs, and the Magic crumbled under the challenge. The failure was most apparent late in Game 2 when Vince Carter missed 2 clutch FTs, and then JJ Redick failed to call an immediate timeout when he grabbed the rebound off a missed KG shot.

The Magic face the daunting task of needing to win BOTH road games just to stay alive and even up the series. How do they do that? I have no idea. Hope for another Celtics 4th qtr collapse, and then steal the game away from them?

Oh by the way, as for the Western Conference Finals, the Lakers beat the Suns once again, blah blah blah. They lead the series 2-0, blah blah blah. No surprises here.
