Scoreboard Watching will give Orlando Magic fans a heads-up on which games with potential playoff implications to pay attention to.

The Orlando Magic could learn tonight which team they'll face in the Eastern Conference Finals, as the Boston Celtics have the opportunity to finish off a huge upset tonight when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs dropped Game 5... by 32 points... on their home floor. Of this year are no doubt already aware, given the hyperbolic media frenzy that ensued; Bradford Doolittle of Basketball Prospectus says we should all get a grip. Reigning MVP LeBron James had a hideous game, and while there's no doubt he needs to step his play up--here are some suggestions from the incomparable Kelly Dwyer--there's more to it than that. It's about his teammates playing better and his coach realizing that Anderson Varejao needs more minutes, writes John Hollinger. And GM Danny Ferry goofed bigtime when he turned down the chance to acquire Amar'e Stoudemire to instead obtain Antawn Jamison, writes Mike Prada.

But this sort of analysis, as Kevin Pelton tweeted, is a bit unfair to the Celtics: they've played a great series, yet now "exist solely as props to allow us to judge LeBron."

Enough of that, though. Comment on the game in this thread, Magic fans.
