BOSTON — In the end, it was the beginning of the games that doomed the Magic and sent them on an unwanted vacation. The Celtics followed a familiar pattern in a clinching 96-84 victory in Game 6 on Friday night, charging out to take control and earn their second trip to the NBA Finals in three seasons. They will face the winner of the Western Conference finals between the Lakers and Suns, which the Lakers lead 3-2. The Celtics built upon early leads in three of their four victories, a tell-tale Game 3 rout putting the Magic in an inescapable 0-3 series hole.

I was one of 25,000-plus "businessmen" playing hooky at the "Businessman's Special" Thursday at Oriole Park. Most of us spent the entire five hours and 14 minutes at the Yard, meetings, phone calls and emails waiting for another day. (Note to my partners: I did go in early to get a few things done before heading to the game. I need this job so I can buy more O's tickets.) We stayed though the nail biting and nerve racking 14 innings to the glorious end. To leave sooner would've been to jinx the home team and be the sorry cause of a lost opportunity.

They won't get far Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel What the Magic should do is undo what they did. Why make any move while Carmelo Anthony is still on the market? That's the move the Magic needed, one that likely could have been made through a far less disruptive process, with the type of rebuilding pieces that could have benefited the Nuggets, pieces such as Marcin Gortat, Brandon Bass, Mickael Pietrus, J.J. Redick and other serviceable parts that could have fast-tracked a Denver rebuild.

The Magic showed they could survive with Dwight Howard in chronic foul trouble. With him on the floor, they looked dominant. Howard had 21 points and 12 rebounds in one of the most crushing wins in Magic history, a 114-71 victory over the visiting Hawks on Tuesday night in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal. Howard added five blocks and avoided the fouls and frustration that overwhelmed him in the first round, helping the Magic go ahead by as many as 46 points.

Magic will make change Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel Of course Stan Van Gundy won't keep his job with the Magic, and he's coaching them in name only now, simply collecting checks until someone, perhaps his "source" in the front office, puts him out of his misery by issuing him his sought-after golden pink slip. The Magic will do what seemingly every team in sports does, go from a hard-driving coach to an easygoing type in a bid to change the culture and appease the restless.
