Jameer Nelson Guarantees Victory in Game Five

Fresh off a game in which he missed four of six free throws — and you could say they might have come in handy, given the one-point finish — Magic guard Jameer Nelson did what any rational player would do.

He guaranteed victory in Game 5.

“You know what, we’re going to make some adjustments and we’re going to go there and win this game,” Nelson predicted to Florida Today on Saturday. “I’m not being arrogant or cocky or anything like that, but tonight, we let it slip out of our hands, let Game 2 slip out of our hands, and we’re going to win this game in Detroit.” [Detroit Free Press]
