Can lighting strike twice
The Celtics are leading 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals against the Orlando Magic. However, with the way the last two games have gone, all indicators are pointing towards a major collapse after holding a 3-0 series lead. Game 4 saw the Celtics have several opportunities to win down the stretch and game 5 showed Orlando could have its swagger back and the Celtics really seemed to unravel. Game 6 will pretty much be a decider since the odds of the Celtics getting a win in a deciding Game 7 will be highly unlikely. One can wonder if two collapses like this will erase the good karma of the memorable Boston championships of the 2000s.
