Sixers/Magic Game 5 Preview

Posted in Blogroll on April 28th, 2009 by Michael Tillery

This series has been as exciting as any other match up this post season. There have been all kinds of runs leading to almost insurmountable comebacks. You have three buzzer beaters out of four games. Despite the seeding, these teams look about as evenly matched as your local cross town rivalry. Dwight Howard has caught heat for not dominating–as has Andre Iguodala. the key players, IMO, have been Hedo Turkoglu and Andre Miller. Both vets have given their respective teams a sure spark by not letting their teams die on the floor. Game 5’s are pivotal. Teams winning this all important game have gone on to win 83% of the time.

Is This Really a Story? Really?
