Can The Magic Win This Series?

(Advertising for Frank Caliendo? That should only be done on TBS. Via Jose3030)

This isn't really hard to believe, but no NBA team has come back from a 0-3 hole in a seven game playoff series in NBA history. Could it happen this year? The Orlando Magic beat the Boston Celtics last night in overtime to keep themselves from being eliminated. After showing no fight in Game 3, the Magic proved last night they won't go down quietly.

Jameer Nelson outplayed Rajon Rondo with 23 points and nine assists. Dwight Howard added 32 points and 16 rebounds and proved that he has the mental capacity to play in the big games. By avoiding the sweep, Orlando can take this series one game at a time and try to climb back into this series.

Other Notes: Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard got into a skirmish last night after Howard landed an elbow on Garnett.

- Big Baby Glen Davis had some weird tongue action going on during the game. He must be a fan of Lengua.

- Kevin Arnovitz of TrueHoop breaks down the terrible final possession of the game for Boston.

Now some Dwight Howard highlights from the night.
