Game 7: Third quarter update
Posted By Paul Flannery On May 17, 2009 @ 10:00 pm In General | 1 Comment
After three, the Magic lead, 66-61.
Every time the Celtics  get close enough to really put pressure on Orlando, the Magic find a way to make a play or two. With the score 54-50, Ray Allen  had a look at a 3-pointer, but it rimmed out. J.J. Redick and Hedo Turkoglu  then hit 3-pointers to make it a 10-point game again.
But the Celtics are hanging in there and they have the Magic to thank. Rashard Lewis missed a pair of free throws at the end of the quarter and Rafer Alston  fouled Rajon Rondo  while he was shooting a fade-away jumper. Then after Courtney Lee  missed a 10-footer, Rondo drained a long two at the buzzer.
This sets up the classic fourth quarter situation. If the Magic are going to take a step and advance they will have to hold a lead on the road in a close-out game. The Celtics have 12 minutes to come back from yet another deficit and continue the defense of their title.
