Here's a look around the internets for reaction to the Orlando Magic's 113-92 defeat of the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the 2010 Eastern Conference Finals.

  • Orlando Magic beat the Boston Celtics with accurate 3-point shooting in Game 5 -

    Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel has more on the Magic's three-point attack, which was in full force in Game 5. Orlando made 13 of its 25 attempts from beyond the arc. This quote from Jameer Nelson, I believe, attests to the mindset of the whole team:

    "We're playing more of our game now, getting out in transition and just attacking and staying on the attack and trying to do it for 48 minutes," Magic point guard Jameer Nelson said.

  • Do You Believe in Miracles? Magic Do

    Tim Povtak of NBA FanHouse describes the Magic's locker room as "confident." He also has quotes from plenty of people involved in the game, including several that are complimentary of Magic center Dwight Howard.

  • PBN | Staggered

    Like me, Tony Mejia of ProBasketballNews does not believe the Celtics are the team under pressure now.

    The series now feels like it has been turned on its head, but don't fall into the trap of saying they go into Boston facing no pressure, because as the top seed in a playoff series they've finally got a grip on, the fact is the Magic are still the ones playing for survival and looking to extend things to a seventh game Sunday night in Orlando.
