give boston credit but don't discount the gift they got with whatever garbage was going on in the cleveland locker room or between LBj's ears or both.

orlando doesn't have that garbage going on, and they don't have the empty holes cleveland did.  

my opinion, vegas loves that boston getting as much support as they are. 

remember this boston team is a team that lost to washington and NJ in the last two weeks of the season, when they needed to win for seeding.. NJ game was at home.

The overreactions to the BOS-CELV series is overwhelming it seems.  It was a nightmare matchup for Clev and a great fit for Bos.  It was almost like watching 5 on 2.  Cleveland can't handle a solid TEAM effort.  And make no mistake Orlando is much more than 2 dudes making plays.  Not to mention, I guarantee if they had both played their last game on the same night, people wouldn't be so swayed by the Boston series win.  But just as the public mind always remembers the latest fad, Boston is the hot ticket.  Plain and simple, Orlando did the best anyone could so far and thrashed whatever was put in front of them.  Just the same as Boston played very well in this postseason.  But this matchup is not the same monster for either team.  These teams are both hot and very closely matched.  And as falsely mentioned, Rondo will not go off on the Magic like he did on Cleveland.   Sorry, but the Cavs matchup was ideal for him, this isn't.  He will play well, but nothing like you just saw crush the Cavs.

Now you move to adavntages and history aside from what we have seen this postseason, as they are even in these playoffs.  Orlando is extremely strong at home, crowd is starving for play, players are much more rested (Boston's older players just came out of a grueling, emotional series), and they have the series lead this year.  Also noting, Boston has kept it very close. 

I'd say the best pick is Orlando (ML).  The rest and fire should give them an edge today.  But as expected I'd say it lands anywhere between 4-8.  Which causes concern.  Two ways I'd feel best...either Magic ML, or teast Magic and under.  The under looks good to me.

Main point hough, whichever way you go, don't let this latest playoff hype take over your logic.  Magic played great and Boston played great.  Both had matchup advantages that they exposed easy.  It won't be the same ion this series.  Look for real angles that involve the actual teams compared to one another.  And for the record, if they had swapped opponents last round we'd be seeing the same matchup.  And the public would be shouting how no way Boston could beat a real team like Orlanda that just beat the Cavs.  Just saying.  lol

Howard will play the series in foul trouble! Boston's variety of bigs will keep him guessing. Boston's D is picking up the pace.

 

Boston 90

Orlando 93

Boston and under!

Orlando, best team in the game right now...  but has their team character changed?  Were they that awewome, or was Atlanta that pathetic?  Someone tell me about that, eh?



wehl, so far so good...
