..So Close, But So Far..[Lakers 2, Magic 0]

The Orlando Magic were this layup away from beating the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.  Guard Courtney Lee missed a lob-layup with 0.6 seconds left, which would have won the game in the 4th quarter.  Because he missed it, the Magic and the Lakers went into Overtime, where the Lakers consistency outdid the Magic 101-96.  The Magic ‘Big 3’ (Turkoglu, Lewis, and Howard) combined for 73 of the Magic 90 points and the Lakers ‘Big 3’ (Gasol, Bryant, and Odom) combined for 72 of the Lakers 101 points, which shows the supporting cast of the Lakers put them over the top.  Game 3 is Tuesday night in Orlando.  Game 3, 4, and 5 are in Orlando.
