Game On: This Week in Sports

The playoffs get down to their final four

Monday, May 18, 2009



The Boston Celtics and the Orlando Magic played Game 7 of their NBA series last night, and the Magic played themselves to a 101-82 victory and a trip to the Eastern Conference finals. The Magic haven't made it to the Eastern Conference finals since 1996, when Dwight Howard, the Magic's current star dunker, was just 10 years old. But it wasn't just about basketball this weekend. The Preakness Stakes were run and for the fifth time ever, a girl beat the field. For a recap of last night's game, The Preakness, and what to look forward to this week, we turn to The Takeaway's sports contributor Ibrahim Abdul-Matin.

Watch Rachel Alexandra beat Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird in the Preakness in the video below.
