Nice free thows Howard. Good defense nelson. Why was Lee not guarding Fisher with 11 seconds left?

They ruled the first half, maybe they burned themselves out for the 2nd half..still a great game.

20 rebounds, 9 blocks and you can't make one free throw to win the game.
How pathetic.

What a bummer - we had it and it we let it get away. Very, very disappointing.

They were behind 3 with 11 seconds left....they almost had to take a 3-pointer...and we give them a nearly wide-open shot ?????? If you aren't going to foul, at least contest the 3-pt line, don't play behind it.....and really Nelson shouldn't have been in the game at all on defense...yes, put Lee in there or someone a little taller....

Thank you referee's for missing 10 fouls against the Magic. That made it 20 points closer than it should have been. GO Magic and David Stern!

Orlando beat themselves in Game 4. In my opinion Jameer should have never been in this series. Alston was running the lanes just fine and I think that's a coaching error. Secondly Dwight should have been on the bench during the last seconds just like Phil did during the Shaq era. Simply put, this game was lost from a coaching stand point.

Unbelievable game. I thought for sure this was Orlando's. The refs were horrible as usual, and I mean for BOTH teams. I just want to make a point that they have been inconsistant. The big mistakes for Orlando were the missed free throws and not fouling Fish at the end of regulation. I have to wonder why SVG didnt have Rafer on the floor @ the end of the game and ot, even though Jameer played ok.

Reason Magic lost is all on Van Gundy,stop playing Nelson,rafer got you here and a 12 point lead at the half,why does he keep playing jameer who was off 4 months and is throwing up air balls,why the hell did you not fould with 11 seconds to go,yes we missed 15 free throws and had 19 turnovers but Van Gundy you should call phil and learn how to coach

Turk can't hit free throws. Nelson looked lost. Lewis has been torched and completely outplayed by Gasol.

Why didn't Rafer play more in the 4th? Nelson seemed to stall the offense.

One free throw and it's tied 2 to 2.

Somewhere Shaq is snickering....

Now? It's over Johnnie. It's over.

dwight has all the potential to be great,he needs to work with patrick and learn how to shoot a jump shot,he cannot just be the dunk man. All he does is stand under the rim and the lakers are converging on him,does he even know how to shoot jump shots,with all the shooters we have someone needs to teach dwight how to score on a jump shot,patrick ewing was the best at it work with him dwight

As boring as basket ball is, I hope this series goes to 7 games. It's good to see restaurants and bars full of paying customers. I wish there were other venues that could stimulate Orlando's economy as well as this basketbore series has.
