NBA Finals: Orlando Magic won Game 3 over Los Angeles Lakers

The Magic won its first game in two visits to the NBA Finals as Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis scored 21 points apiece in a 108-104 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3 last night at Amway Arena to pull within 2-1 in this best-of-seven series.

The Orlando Magic shot 62.5 percent from the field tonight, and so they won–barely, but they still won. It’s safe to say they won’t shoot that well again in this series. Only seven times this entire season did a team shoot better than 62 percent from the floor, and it never happened against the Laker defense.

Game 4 is tomorrow night Thursday, June 11, 9pm at Amway Arena, and Game 5 -- now necessary -- also will be at Amway Arena on Sunday.
