Today in Central Florida sports history: Magic fall to Celtics in Eastern Conference Finals

This time, the Boston Celtics made sure the Orlando Magic didn’t pull off another playoff series comeback against them.

The Magic fell behind 3-0 prior to closing to 3-2 in their Eastern Conference finals series with the Celtics before their season ultimately came to an end at TD Garden with a 96-84 loss in Game 6 on this day in 2010.

The Magic were riding momentum on May 28, 2010, as they pushed toward avoiding playoff elimination by the Celtics for the second consecutive season. Just days earlier, they had closed Amway Arena with a Game 5 win over the Celtics, who watched the Magic come back from a 3-2 deficit to win the teams’ 2009 conference semifinal series.
