Do You Believe In Magic?

It’s happening again in Boston.

Six years after the Boston Red Sox erased a 3-0 series hole and defeated the New York Yankees in the 2004 American League Championship Series, the Boston Celtics have to be fearful of the Orlando Magic. Down 3-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Magic went into their bag of tricks (yeah, I went there) and continue to surprise the majority of  basketball fans.

It all seems so eerily similar – only in reverse.

The Red Sox were down 3-0 in the series in 2004, losing game three 19-8 to the Yankees. The Celtics were up 3-0 in the 2010 series, after they clobbered the Magic 94-71 in game three.

The Red Sox needed a 9th inning steal from Dave Roberts in game four to set up the game tying run against the Yankees and a walk-off homer from David Ortiz to extend the series. The Celtics literally bobbled the basketball with a chance to win game four and the series against Orlando.

Who will wear the bloody sock for the Magic on Friday night?

The Boston Bruins have already squandered away a 3-0 series lead in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Philadelphia Flyers this season. Don’t think another dose of badness can bloom at TD Garden.

Do you believe in Magic?
