BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Celtics need one win to reach the NBA
finals for the second time in three years. And the defending
Eastern Conference champions barely put up a fight.
Backup Glen "Big Baby" Davis scored 17 points and Rajon Rondo
added 11 points and 12 assists on Saturday night to lead the
Celtics to a 94-71 victory over the Orlando Magic and a 3-0 lead in
the best-of-seven East finals. No NBA team has lost a playoff
series after winning the first three games.
The Magic have to win Game 4 on Monday night to avoid a sweep
and force the series back to Orlando. They'll need a better effort
than in Game 3, when they fell behind early for the third straight
