The Orlando Magic really took the game to Boston Celtics on Wednesday night, and the end result was the most dominant game that the team has had in the Eastern Conference Finals. C Dwight Howard was at the center of it all. Most notable was his inadvertent elbow that caught F Glen Davis in the cheek. Howard wasn't just being physical for the heck of it, either. He finished Game 5 with 21 points and ten rebounds to help lead the way for Orlando.
Davis suffered a concussion and lost a tooth for his efforts in the paint. He wasn't nearly the only casualty, though. F Rasheed Wallace now has an aching back in spite of the fact that he scored 21 points on the day. C Kendrick Perkins became visibly frustrated with how the game was going, and he was 'T'd up twice and thrown out of the game after playing just 17 minutes. The NBA rescinded one of the technical fouls that was handed down to Perkins on Thursday, which becomes notable because the second technical marked his seventh of the playoffs. The seventh 'T' calls for an automatic suspension for one game. Rest assured that the Magic are going to try their best to goad Perkins into yet another technical foul in Game 6, which would see him be suspended for either Game 7 at Amway Arena or Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
The Magic are three point underdogs on Friday night in Game 6, which is a far cry from the seven point underdogs that they were just four nights ago in Game 4. Should they win the game, Boston would be facing the prospects of becoming the first team in NBA history to blow a 3-0 series lead after 93 successful attempts. Going into last season, the Celtics had never lost a Game 7 on their home floor in franchise history. This year, rather than just making team history, they can make history that will shake the entire league.
The Magic are still +220 underdogs to win this series, but they have a lot of betting trends on their side. They know that the underdog and the road team in this series is now 8-2 SU and ATS in the L/10 clashes. The road team is 3-2 SU and ATS against the Eastern Conference Finals odds.
