Nope. You still lose.

The Celtics ARE on a winning streak.
The Magic ARE on a winning streak(not any more)
The Celtics ARE the Worlds champs
The Magic ARE the World champs(not this year, but some day)
The Cavaliers ARE 1 1/2 games behind the Celtics
The Magic ARE 1 1/2 games behind the Celtics

Lets try your way. The Magic is 1 1/2 games behind the Celtics...Nope. Nice try

But don't believe me.

dude, they are plural to begin with.

The Magic is singular.
plurals are, a singular is.

And just because a lot of people use bad grammar doesn't make it correct. In fact, the sentence "The Magic is 1 1/2 games behind" is correct.

The Marines are.
The Army is.

I still win :)

Feel free to be wrong. I will go with what I already thought and what the professional journalists support.
