Just a day after calling out his coach, Dwight Howard is confident the Orlando Magic will beat the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

“We can’t give up hope,” Howard told reporters on Wednesday. “We’re in this series to win it. We are going to win this series.”

Howard criticized head coach Stan Van Gundy
following the Magic’€™s Game 5 loss. He questioned why he wasn’€™t being allowed to ‘€œdominate,’€ as he barely touched the ball down the stretch of their fourth quarter collapse. Howard and Van Gundy seemed to have reached a resolution.

“Getting the ball shouldn’t be a big issue for me,” Howard said. “There’s more ways to dominate the game than scoring. Me and coach, we talked about that. I just can’t let my frustrations get to the point where I’ll say anything.”

Game 6 will be played tonight in Orlando. The Celtics lead the series 3-2.
