Tonight is a must-win for the Magic. If we lose tonight, there’s zero doubt in my mind we lose in Toronto, and the series is over. 

 

At the same time, I just have to remember that I had no expectations for this season. This team has already gone so much further than I, or really anyone, thought. No matter what happens the next two games, it’s been quite a ride.

Frustrating thing about this first round is that there are so many games where the underdog is making tons of noise and putting a scare in 'em... but then just barely losing in the end. Spurs/Nuggets looking like the only series that's interesting at a full-series level.

For sure. Brooklyn and Indiana each looked like they could take over the series, but haven't. Indiana especially; it could easily be 2-1 Pacers now.

But you are dealing with a team coached by Nate McMillian: NBA's version of Jeff Fisher, down to the mustache.

Celtics are the first team through, and Indy’s the first team out. Kind of a shame as I was hoping for more gold vs green games.

 

honestly I feel like the close game results flattered the Pacers. They were still quite good after Oladipo went down but benefited from an easy schedule, imho. Those were some nightmarish cold streaks the Pacers went on this week. Would’ve been worse if Boston ever managed not to take a quarter off.

Don't forget about us, either. Game 3 really should've been a win, but they had a 16-0 run in the 3rd, and at the end of the game Kyle Lowry decided he wanted that rebound more than the 4 Orlando guys around him. The refs sucked all game, but I really have no right to complain about them - I can't deny that they were worse for Toronto.

 

I just hope that the crowd is as crazy as it was on Friday. I was too young to remember any of the Dwight years (and I'm not sure if we even went to any games), so that was the first playoff game I've ever been to... across all sports. I've never seen anything like it. A few days ago, someone on Reddit with a Knicks flair (lol) said "If the Magic are in the playoffs, but no one in Orlando cares, are they really in the playoffs?". If they're somehow also on this website, please watch Game 3 and then kindly :censored: off.

That’s the series. GG Raptors. I would say “we’ll be back”, but who believes that? I sure don’t.

And then, you look at the Leafs...

What else do the Thunder need? They got two superstars on their roster, but can only muster a six seed and a first round exit. As much as I hate to say it, George would've been better off in Los Angeles.
