Game 1 Win
Posted May 17, 2010on:
Being in Orlando for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, was a certainly a blast. I am a huge Celtics fan, and was lucky enough to get tickets to the game in Orlando on sunday. The Celtics came out looking strong. Paul Pierce opened the game up with a three-pointer and the Celtics went rolling from there. At one point in the first half the Celtics were leading the game 29-14. Watching the Magic warm up was certainly a shock, they were not even taking the game seriously. They were clowning around, and
more focused on making the fans laugh than they were on the game. Meanwhile, they Celtics were extremely focused and it showed early in the game. However, when the lead was cut to nine by the half, thoughts of a late game comeback had aroused. The Celtics came out strong for the third quarter, but in the fourth quarter they did not score in 5:30 and the Magic were able to get back in the game. With just 2 minutes left in the game the Celtics were up only by 5. But surprisingly, and only surprisingly because of the year they had this year, they were able to hold it out and get the win. It was certainly sweet walking out of that stadium with a vicotry, and watching 25,000 Magic fans leave utterly disgusted.
