This being the more unlikely series, holds more question marks than answers.
Last year, 'Big Baby' Glen Davis hit a game winning jumper in Game five to give the Boston Celtics a 3-2 lead in the Conference Finals, only to give back the series in the next two games.
The difference this year, is the comeback of a healthy Jameer Nelson and Kevin Garnett.
The change between Hedo Turkoglu and Vince Carter should also be of intrigue to those watching.
The change of Carter taking Turkoglu's place raises a potential problem for the Celtics in Vince Carter causing Paul Pierce more pain than last year from Turkoglu.
Pierce's problems with on ball defense could be catastrophic in Carter's ability to drive and might force the Celts' to put him on the bench in favor of Tony Allen.
The Orlando Magic should be able to spread the ball around the floor through Dwight Howard; Thus allowing Matt Barnes, Carter, Michael Pietrus, Nelson and Rashard Lewis some easy and open looks.
Dwight Howard needs to be the man this series and make a few of his free throws this time around.
His inability to knock down the freebies almost cost them in last year in the Playoffs.
If he can knock them down Orlando will be looking good for the Finals trip.
Boston on the other hand is a team of curiosity.
They seemed dead in the water a month ago struggling into the Playoffs with Father time breathing down their necks.
Suddenly, Rasheed Wallace is actually hustling, Kevin Garnett looks healthy, Rajon Rondo is playing like a top Point Guard in the league and Paul Pierce is still complaining like a five-year-old girl.
Paul is a perplexity to me, as a young man trying to make his mark in the league he was tough mentally and physically.
I would expect the toughness to continue to grow over the years, but he has somehow become softer. I bring this up because Pierce cannot have another lackluster series (like the last two) if the Celtics are going to win this series.
Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins must use their fouls smartly against Howard and try to force him to commit silly fouls.
The one thing Dwight Howard cannot do in this series.
It was enough of a scare committing fouls against Charlotte; those same fouls will make a bigger impact against Boston in this round.
Ray Allen is an unknown, like Lamar Odom, when he shows up, the other team is usually going down.
Orlando still has not lost a single game in this Playoffs and will be tough just getting the first loss on them of the series.
The Celtics have so many unknowns in the coming round it almost makes me think of them as certainties.
All of this being calculated the consistency of Orlando should prevail over the at sometimes uninspired Boston Celtics.
Forget a rematch of the 2008 Finals.
Prediction: Magic in Six
