Magic questions will be answered

Throughout the Eastern Conference finals the Magic have seemed to be a step behind the moment. Game 1 came and went and the Magic seemed unprepared for the Celtics [1] physical play. Then down 2-0 Orlando was run off the court early by the Celtics and never recovered.

Now that it’s literally a must-win game for Orlando, Stan Van Gundy [2] was asked if he would know if his team was ready early in the game.

“I don’t even think that’s the real question,” Van Gundy said prior to Game 4.  “I think the question will come, whether it’s early or later on in the game, the question comes whenever you get hit, especially when you’re in this situation.”

The Magic didn’t react well to that Celtics punch in Game 3 and Orlando has faced criticism that they laid down with their season on the line. Doc Rivers [3] wasn’t going near that one.

“I don’t know,” he said. “We’ve always said keep your own bedroom clean, let everyone else clean their own. It would be great if it was us because that would mean that we’re playing well, but I can’t answer that.”

Things can change fast in this league. Take the Celtics who spent most of the regular season answering those types of questions. Now they are an efficient, focused machine. It was only a week ago when people were saying the same thing about the Magic.
