NBA Semifinals - Eastern Conference

Disclaimer: This is not a minute-by-minute account of the game. Just some random ramblings of a fan.

So the Orlando Magic won Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals over Atlanta Hawks. And they didn't just win. It was an awesome, amazing WIN! The final score was Hawks 71 - Magic 114. The beat them by 43 points. AWESOME!!!

It wasn't as bad early on in the game, as the Hawks were just down by 2 at the end of the first quarter. But after that, they just blew them away. Hubby was ecstatic and was in a very festive mood during the game (hmmm... I wish I took advantage and made him buy me something while he was in this genial mood haha).

Dwight Howard scored 21 points and 12 rebounds despite being in foul trouble. But all the players contributed to this great win so kudos to all of them.

One main concern was that they kept Michael Pietrus in the game even though he was playing with a sore ankle. I wish this minor injury doesn't affect his brilliant performance for the rest of the series.

Time to don our Superman shirts! Next game will be on Thursday, May 6 at the Amway Arena. Wish I could be there (anyone have extra tickets? Will trade one of my Special Edition Dwight Howard Superman Shirts for tix - XL size only! haha). No, seriously.
