------------------

I'm gonna take the Celtics in this 1. Everyone's saying the Magic have an advantage since no Garnett for the Celtics, but I think the Magic are pretenders. I dont have faith in their coach and the fact they fall in love with jump shots. Celtics in 7.

Magic tried to give the game away in the end of the 3rd-4th quarter.....lucky they had almost a 30 point lead or Boston would have won game 1

Celtics crush Magic, series tied 1-1

Rajan Rondo bounces back from his bad game in Game 1 and puts up yet another triple double. Eddie House came off the bench and dropped 31 points and got in Rafer Alston's head. I still think the Celtics will win this thing.

Rafer Alston slaps Eddie House so hard, his headband spins!

The NBA suspended Rafer Alston one game Thursday for slapping Eddie House(notes) in the back of the head, leaving the team in the hands of 34-year-old Anthony Johnson(notes) and seldom-used Tyronn Lue(notes) for Friday’s Game 3 against the Boston Celtics in their Eastern Conference semifinal.

Alston contended afterward that House goaded him into the play. A Magic spokesman said Alston was not planning to comment until Friday’s morning shootaround.

Physical play has frustrated the Magic throughout the playoffs and ballooned into a series of foolish retaliations, a formula the Celtics look to continue as the series shifts to Orlando tied.

He got suspended for that slap but Rondo can throw a guy and get nothing more than a technical?
