if you're thinking that the Celtics' near-comeback Monday dented Orlando's psyche somehow, I greatly doubt it. Apparently, this is just what happens when Orlando plays Boston. And as shaky as the Magic can look, they actually have a fairly ironclad record in games in which they lead. In the regular season they were 48-4 when up after three quarters and 52-1 when they led with five minutes left.

John Hollinger of ESPN Insider I've shared the same numbers provided above by Hollinger a few times, so the stats shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone in the community. To update the numbers for the postseason, the Magic are 52-5 when leading after the third quarter. Say what you want, but Orlando knows how to finish games. Here's one more statistic to remember for tomorrow night's matchup, the Orlando Magic are 22-2 on the road when leading after the first quarter.
