Magic stay alive

Win 96-92 in overtime. Not going to spend too much time with this game because I watched the final episode of 24 last night and want to spend a lot of time on that. Dwight Howard asserted himself last night with 32 as did Jameer Nelson with 23. J.J. Redick has been big off the bench for the Magic. Was three-for-six last night from three and finished with 12. Orlando hit 10 trifectas to Boston's five. Paul Pierce had 32 points but was o-for-6 from three-point range. Series moves back to Orlando Wed. Game time is 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.

Should the Celtics be worried? Yeah, they should. Their hockey brethren, the Bruins, led 3-0 over the Philly Flyers two rounds ago in the playoffs and lost 4-3. There is some reason for concern. If Orlando can win at home and cut it to 3-2 things could get interesting.

LA at Phoenix game four tonight at 8 on TNT.
