About a dozen Magic fans remain; Is this series over?

courtney-lee-missed-shot.jpgHere's one of the more pathetic sentences you'll read today.

Around a dozen fans waited for the Magic's charter jet to arrive at Orlando International Airport early Monday morning.
For the math-impaired readers out there, that's about 12. Twelve people braving the dark night to welcome Dwight Howard and Co. back from an unsuccessful couple of games in Los Angeles. That borders on awkward.

Down two games to none, the Magic now have three straight at Amway Arena. Despite the change of venue, many are saying this series is over.

Not one, but two "Around the Horn" participants have tipped their hand on this issue already.

Orlando had plenty of chances to steal a game on the West Coast, but piddled them away with turnovers and blown lay-up. For a team that has played well enough to win not one, but two games it must be immensely frustrating to be staring at an 0-2 hole.

Is this series over or will the Magic use their home-court advantage to make this more interesting?

OVER??!? What are you talking about, K. Koster?

Did you even watch last night's overtime Game 2? The Magic showed they can play with the Laker, even in L.A.

Now that the series has moved East, look for Orlando to win games 3 & 4.

Actually, I only saw the last couple of minutes. You should know I NEVER miss Andy Rooney in "60 Minutes."
