It was a weekend full of triumph and upsets during the NBA playoffs. In a dramatic fight, Dwight Howard and the up-and-coming Orlando Magic managed to send the Celtics, last year’s NBA champs, back to Boston in a 102-82 upset. Next up, Orlando will try to slow down the momentum of NBA’s MVP King James and the Cleveland Cavs who have swept all competitors thus far.
With a rocky start Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers were able to capture a game 7 win over the Houston Rockets with a final score of 80-70. They advance to face the magical duo of Denver Nuggets’ Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups. The Conference Finals begin on Tuesday with Denver vs. L.A. and Wednesday with Orlando vs. Cleveland. This is only the beginning!
