When Dwight Howard was declared out for the year with a back injury, everyone wrote the Orlando Magic off as a playoff doormat, and a means to an end for the Pacers in the first round. Well after a stunning comeback in Game 1, the Magic hold a 1-0 lead in the series and now have home court advantage. The Pacers will likely come out with their hair on fire in this game, but the Magic will have the motivation of all the naysayers behind them again; and that certainly worked for them in Game 1.
