Celtics Steal Game 5 from the Lazy and Heartless Magic (HOLLA!)

That was another awesome win by the Celtics last night!  Once again, they had no business winning that game but they had more heart and determination than the Magic and that is what mattered in the end.  They literally stole that game by playing better defense and hitting some big shots in the last 5 minutes.  The Magic looked unmotivated and were completely out of sync during that time.  Dwight Howard only touched the ball 3 times and no one else could hit a shot to save their life.   The C's saw their window of opportunity and they seized it.  That was classic Celtics basketball in the 4th quarter.

The thing that got the Celtics going was the outstanding play from Stephon Marbury.  He scored 12 points in the 4th quarter and completely rejuvenated the Celtics offense to the point that they had a chance to win this game.  We've been waiting for that from Marbury and it finally came at the perfect time.  He looked confident and was looking for his shot which is what the C's really needed at that time.  They also received another great offensive game from Big Baby Davis and a HUMONGOUS shot from Ray Allen to help win this game.  UNREAL!

It sounds like the wheels are really starting to fall off the Magic's already shaky team bus.  After the game, Dwight Howard said in a note so subtle tone "I would just say it’s tough to win all season when you play inside-out with people who got you off to a good season. I think I’m capable of scoring in the post. I don’t want to say it’s all about offense. But when you have a dominant player, let him be dominant."  

He even took a direct shot at coach Van Gundy: “The coaches have to recognize what’s working on the floor. Stick to it. Even if it’s half your starters on the floor. Not just the guys you have put the most trust in. You have to have trust in everybody.  We moved the ball, we ran, got easy shots, and our coach has to recognize when he was a certain group out there and they are getting the job done and we have to leave those guys on the floor. We are going to make mistakes, but I think you have to go with what works."  DAMN! 

There is just no way in hell that Van Gundy will be coaching in Orlando next season unless they can win this series.  There is no way in hell that will happen now.  The way these unmotivated clowns are playing, it will be over on Thursday night after the Celtics destroy them on their home court.  I just don't think they have the heart to take this series to 7 games and I don't think they even want to at this point.  The Magic have already given up on this series and their coach.  It's sad but I really don't care.  All that matters is another Celtics win!!!
