Reality check everyone. The Celtics lost in overtime because Paul Pierce tried to be a hero and Rajon Rondo had his worst game in about 3 months. Dwight Howard played out of his mind and Jameer Nelson hit a couple threes including one that banked in. Can they do this for 3 straight games? I highly doubt it.
Sure, the Magic have two out of the next 3 games(if necessary) on their home court, but does home court even matter with these teams? I'd argue the Celtics are better on the road than at home. Do you really think that if the Magic are fortunate enough to knock off Boston tonight they can win at the Garden in Game 6? It would be a collapse of epic proportions if they did somehow lose this series, but I really just can't fathom it.
You know when we can panic. When it's 3-3 going back to Orlando. Then everyone has every right to start getting nervous. Until then we are in good shape. What would you have said before the series started if the Celtics were up 3-1. You would be ecstatic right? However, because everyone just assumed we'd sweep the attitude changes. I said before the series that the Celtics would win in 6 and I hope I'm wrong. But even if they lose tonight let's remember that momentum is overrated. Each game is its own animal. If momentum was so great we would've lost Game 4 last series and won Monday's game. The better team over the course of the series usually wins and we are the better team.
