BOSTON - MAY 24: Matt Barnes #22 and Rashard Lewis #9 of the Orlando Magic celebrate during a stop in play against the Boston Celtics in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2010 NBA Playoffs at TD Banknorth Garden on May 24, 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Orlando Magic's season could end tonight if they lose Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Boston Celtics. Orlando made progress in winning Game 4, thus preventing a Celtics sweep, although Adrian Wojnarowski would have you believe that the Magic are a bunch of jokers who were merely content to win won game, and perhaps two, because they are "fraudulent," or some other such nonsense.
Anyway, the statistic of note in this series has become this: teams trailing 3-0 in best-of-seven playoff series are 0-93 in NBA history. Orlando will aim to improve that figure to 1-93 by winning the next three. So I'm asking you if it will make history. Consider it a fan confidence poll, or something. Also, because the last poll I conducted didn't go over so well, I thought I'd try something different.
The poll closes at 8 PM, just a half-hour before tipoff of what will either be the next step toward making history, or the final step in a mildly disappointing season.
