Game 3: Final Wrap

Posted By Jessica Camerato On May 8, 2009 @ 9:58 pm In General | 1 Comment

The Magic were in control the entire night as they defeated the Celtics [1], 117-96, to take a 2-1 series lead in Orlando. The Celtics got off to a slow start and found themselves down 54-41 at halftime. After cutting the lead to single digits, they failed to take advantage of Dwight Howard’s five fouls. Even with the Magic’s big man on the bench, the Celtics were never able to put together a threatening offensive run. Paul Pierce [2] led the Celtics with 27 points (14-14 FT). Ray Allen [3] shot just 3-for-13 (8 points). Rashard Lewis led all scorers with 28 points. Game 4 will be played on Sunday at the Amway Arena.
