Magic show backbone in OT to win Game 4 and extend series


By Couper Moorhead, for NBA.com
Posted Tuesday May 25, 2010 1:39AM

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- The difference between Games 3 and 4 for the Orlando Magic was simple.

In the first, they gave up and ran. Tonight, they stood tall and answered the bell -- and Orlando's 96-92 overtime victory was perhaps the game of the playoffs to date.

"I think everybody on our team took Game 3 very personally," J.J. Redick said. "We've been a very tough group, a group that plays hard. And I think everybody kind of internalized things.

"There wasn't a lot of rah?rah, there wasn't a lot of rhetoric, there wasn't a lot of cliches going around the locker room. It wasn't about yelling at guys. It was just, let's go out and play and be who we are."

Neither team was particularly sharp, as 57 fouls and 35 turnovers can attest, but events were fiery until the end as elbows flew, and every player had a moment that either shook or silenced the arena. But while the Boston Celtics offense stagnated as it did during so many second-half collapses during the regular season, the difference was in Orlando.

Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy spoke after Game 3 of keeping his team from giving in to human nature, down 3-0 in the series, and escaping. They did just that in getting an eight-point lead in the first nine minutes, but the Magic again had to avoid the temptation of ease when the Celtics gained their first lead of the game to close the third quarter.

"The hardest thing is when you go behind in a game like this, and you're down 3-0," Van Gundy said. "What you're fighting against is that human nature to let it go.

"If you don't believe you're going to win the series, it's just too easy to let go. Yeah, you've got to play it one game at a time, but there's got to be a belief in there."

And that's the question, hokey as it sounds, that needs to be asked: Do they believe? The answer will determine whether the Magic withstanding Ray Allen's five threes and Paul Pierce's dead-legged heroics matters, or if this game will be whisked away like a final breath.

"We didn't win this game just to win a game to say we were in this series," Dwight Howard said. "You know, we want to make this a series and win this series. We all have to believe that. I told the guys before the game to put out all disbelief, anxiety and fear. We just got to keep playing."

The change in Howard was less poetic than that of his team, but the impact was felt all the same. In the post, rather than deliberately and stubbornly charging at Kendrick Perkins, he made fluid decisions, creating space for running hook shots or clearing the strong side for a driving Jameer Nelson, lurking behind defenders for an alley-oop.

Howard finished with 32 points on 19 shots, and of his 13 field goals, five were assists from Nelson, all dunks.

Nelson, with nine assists and 23 points on 14 shots, was indispensable, hitting consecutive threes in overtime after missing a potential game-winning shot at the end of regulation. He made the appropriate edits to his pick-and-roll game, drawing the defenders with constant probing of the paint, finding shooters -- Orlando hit 10 threes -- and diving to the rim when the space was there.

For the first time all playoffs, Rajon Rondo was thoroughly and definitively outplayed by his point-guard counterpart.

"I just think the first three games he wasn't as aggressive as he needed to be," Howard said. "And tonight he was aggressive. He was attacking the basket. That's what he did in the first two series. We need him to just continue to do that."

Continuity was largely the issue on Boston's side. Rondo had a dud of a performance after early foul trouble, a far cry from his magnificent earlier performances, and while Ray Allen kept hitting everything from everywhere, Boston got just 10 points off the bench and 17 out of the frontcourt of Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins.

Even Pierce, who almost turned the tides with a drive-and-hammer-dunk in the final minutes of regulation, needed 25 shots to get to 32 points. And as the game wore on, his jumper fell shorter and shorter, culminating in a sequence in the final 20 seconds of overtime when he front-ironed consecutive triples.

"You have so many things on your mind, you weren't thinking about what was happening tomorrow," Allen said. "It was all about that moment. We have such great talent on this team, such great individual talent on both ends of the floor that each man feels like they can get the defensive stop. Each guy feels like they can make the shot to win the game for us.

"Sometimes that's been at our team's detriment."

Still, Boston has plenty of breathing room, as no team has ever comeback from a 3-0 deficit in the history of basketball.

But Orlando believes. That matters. And for another couple days at least, so will this game.
