What a difference, Jameer needs to be seated more often and longer, if not traded, he is not a leader, he is a looooser, when he came to the game , the bucks almost get them, Brial Hill sent him back to the bench, and guess what ???? the magic returned the advantage, he came back, and what ? same deal again , it is a proof, he is a looser, he started shooting like crazy instead of organize the plays, Arroyo did not scored, but organized the game, how many magic players scored ? almost everybody, but Nelson is playing , only G. Hill, D Howard, and himself. It is a shame that B Hill did not played Diener, it was a perfect game to play him, JJ Redick is getting the FRIO OLIMPICO, what is going on with him? he also deserves more minutes,

PLEASE SENT NELSON TO THE BENCH !!!!!

Magic finally won. They did however lost a 29 point lead at some point and eventually got down to 13. For a second, I thought they were going to lose it again.
Also, for once, Magic won without Dwight doing well. Other people actually stepped up this time,

wow...we won dude calm down...jameer is struggling right now you are right...but there is no way the magic should trade him...that will come back to haunt them...Carlos has played well lately managing the game...but it wasn't too long ago that he was doing the same thing...should he have been traded then?? If that would have been brought up the Puerto Rican's would've gone crazy....

moral of the story...we won big...Dwight didn't play well and we still won by 25, nothing to be upset with...lets just hope they keep it up...

Geez, Hill needs to start Darko though I'm wondering if its the Magic plan not to let him inflate his number so they wouldn't get hit hard on the cap this summer.
JJ needs to play more, give him a couple of jump shot per game, just throw the ball in Dwight and he will free up JJ for some open shot.
Damn Golden State for that slippery spot, took Ariza out and now we are missing him badly.

A shirt being not tucked in must be something really horrible, they musy have been bored, and had to find something to call. Well I am glad that the Magic finally got a win, at last!

Jameer needs to be seated more often and longer, The Magic should just get rid of himand stopmessing around with him, along with a few others.

I like Jameer's swagger. We need to keep him. Remember, the whole team has been playing bad lately not just him. Good win... lets hope they keep it up.

It feels good to see the win but those Free Throws are hell to watch. Combined with the 3rd quater melt down, if the opposing team was any thing else, say the Hawks, the Magic probably would have lost again. Thank god the Bucks are even worse than the Magic and coming off a huge defeat just the night before in Miami!

And vice versa, if we can get JJ going it will free up spaces for Dwight.

Better play a lot better than this friday night and in the future because we won't be playing the Redd-less bucks every night, although we do have 1 more game with them before he comes back so...

" Nelson said "You have to decide when to have fun and when to make it business. Tonight, we made it all business."
Its all business on the court Jameer and you are not getting it done. Not as a Shooter, Not as a PG.
By the way nice job on your article today Brian Schmitz anyone who reads it without having seen the game last night will have no idea of what really happened, THE USUAL!!!!

howard does not have to score for him to have value to our team. he needs to be a monster under the boards on both ends of the floor . he will be surprised at how many points he will find by just getting rebounds and put backs

darrell armstrong is still our answer. don't forget!

Darko and Arroyo did a great job. Eventhough Arroyo didnt score alot when he was in the floor the magic were untop of their game, as soon as they put Nelson back on the game they lost their big lead. We need to try starting Arroyo and Darko more often.Jameer and Turk will come of the bench with more energy. We should start Arroyo and Bogans as the Guard, Hill and Darko as fowards and Howard as the center. We should try this line up to see how it works. There's nothing to lose now. We def. need to make some changes and i loved the tempo on the game with arroyo, hill and darko on the game. They did a great job... not taking credit away from tony who did an exelent job on defense and offense as well.

Darko if your reading this, please, please, please stop trying to shoot the long Js. You can't make them right now and it is basically a turnover whenever you decides to shoot. Better to have at the free throw line making 1 of 2.

BRIAN,

YOU TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT ARROYO'S LEADERSHIP AND KEY TO THE MAGICS VICTORY...EVERYTIME HE WAS ON THE FLOOR THE MAGIC DEFENSE AND TEAM CONCEPTS EXCELL....NOW MY QUESTION TO YOU IS SHOULD HE BE STARTER? MAYBE MOVE JAMMER DOWN TO SG OR SIT HIM DOWN AND START BOGANS AT SG WITH HILL AT SF?YOU TELL ME..

The Shaq era is dead for big men these days! It time for Howard to learn to shoot the ball, if wants to be the best. Everybody like Bosh,Duncan,Okur and ect can! Big Ben,Howard and the brick tosser named Shaq can't shoot. Howard is still young,so if the Magic don't teach him soon,then some other team will,in the end we can thank B.Hill for another player gone!
