Magic advance

Orlando's late run brushes aside Toronto as the Magic become the first team to advance in the 2008 playoffs. Howard was the difference in the series-clinching Game 5 as well as the series. He posted 21 points and 21 rebounds, his third 20-20 in five games.

Orlando's bench is thin, but its starting five is very good. The Magic will give either Detroit or Philadelphia a tough series, but staying out of foul trouble will be key.
