NBA playoffs (Game 3)

4:05 p.m. PT at Orlando

Celtics +5 at Magic (189)

The teams split the first two games in Boston, but the Celtics come into Game 3 with the momentum. Boston overcame a 5-point home loss in Game 1 with a convincing 112-94 victory. Orlando’s reputation as a team that tightens up in pressure situations will be put to the test tonight. The Celtics went into Chicago tied 1-1 in their first round series and came away in Game 3 with the only blowout win of that epic 7-game war. Getting 5 points even with Kevin Garnett is worth taking considering all the history of playoff success. CELTICS.
