That game was there for the taking…and well, just like the magic in the last game..we had cotnrol (but not control enough) for 3 quarters, and pretty much gagged at the end. so many thing to complain about. (also some positives, for the future anyways, perk and rondo continue to amaze)
Pretty dissapointing. the celtics dont really deserve to win this series for not being able to put a team in crisis away tonight. i mean really.
As a Magic fan, I can't wait for game 7. Both teams have some areas in which they've struggled lately (Ray Allen has had 5 awful games and is prone to go off; the Magic are shooting 17-for-75 for 22.7% from three the past three games) that they're hoping can finally get fixed by Sunday night. It's been a great series and I'm extremely impressed with the fight that the Celtics have. Both teams are missing their heart & soul All Stars, but the C's have really been able to step up in crunch-time (the comeback in game one, Big Baby's game-winner in game 4, the comeback in game 5) with incredible defense and some big-time shots. They've rallied around each other and played unselfish ball, and have played with much more desire (and obviously big-game experience) than the Magic have in this series. I've also come to the conclusion that Rondo is the next Jason Kidd. Good luck to you guys in game 7. Hopefully it's one for the ages.
