The Magic beat the Raptors 106-94 to take a 3-1 series lead. This was really a game of runs, and the Magic were due for one late. Bosh put it all on the line today, but it wasn't enough. He had a career game, Toronto needed some contributions from other players. Only two Raptors players were in double digits. Howard had eight blocks from the first two games, none in game three (only Raptors win) and six in this one. The key seems to be Howard's swats. More use of a reverse layup could curtail Howard's numbers.

The series will now shift back to Orlando, they have a chance to take out the Raptors. Toronto can win if Howard has one or two blocks, otherwise I like the Magic. Toronto doesn't want to go down terribly easily, hopefully they can live up to that.
