If Lewis shoots better than 28% we win this game. With Lewis' shooting we were 40.7%, without his shots in there the team jumped to 54% Granted he did shoot very, very well from the 3 pt line, but if the shots aren't falling try to draw some fouls and get to the line!!! He's a $118M jump shooter! Hell, I can do that!

Who cares who is/isn't injured or sick. Big time, all star players take games over...didn't happen for the magic.

Umm.**** yeah.**** I dont think I agree with you there.**** TMAC always show up against the MAGIC. Besides, nobody looked or played banged up that night.**** from what I hear.
Not only HEDO was out.**** we shot very poorly. And Houston?? 58% I beleive. Yeah, but still hung in there pretty close.
I said we played well and with HEDO on the line up, this could have easily gone the other way.
HEDO not only can give us 20pt+ but also makes sets up quite a bit for HOWARD etc.**** Trust me.**** HEDO is our main guy especially in the 4th quarter.**** and that was when we lost that game.
Hey there O, If anyone told you that Artest was running without a limp and T-Mac was not his usual self (like driving to the basket and forcing contact etc.)...you need to stop listening to them. Tracy does not even look in shape. Even the TV announcers mentioned that artest was continually limping. It was blatent. Tracy only played 30 min and took 13 shots and only went to the line like only twice. He would easily go to the line at least 6 times in a game when he was aggressive. He took outside shots because it was easier than driving. He attempted 6 threes! Artest never went to the free throw line either!
And to answer your question: Dwight looked like Yao owned him. D12 played much better when he settled down and not try to STOP Yao but rather alter his shot. That cut down on his fouls.

Tell you the truth, KGB, Tmac has been playing like that all season. He looks lazier and already is complaining that he doesnt like the offense he is running and wants less minutes. He coach is saying, when TMAC plays less minutes, he is a non factor because he never gets into rythm.
Same Ol' TMAC!

I"m sorry man...Houston is still a sorry team. They still have TMAC/YAO...that equals to not going any where. TMAC's back will always act up and YAO is still way too soft and injury prone.
I beleive everybody said the same thing last year about houston being a complete team. with Bonzi...Francis...scola etc....nothing happened. Now Artest...well..still...inconsi stent.
I dont know.
TMAC said he'll "shut it down", then show up to practise the next day...lol...c'mon now...
You know you are not going anywhere and TMAC is about to bounce. His BACK or knee always acts up against Good teams and shows up when things looks good.
Again, this has nothing to do with the the game but i'm just saying....Houston is in Denial, YAO will not take them an
the rockets are a sorry team huh so what does thast make the magic trash for losing to a sorry team

WE? you didn't win ****![/QUOTE]

You didnt win **** apart from that phelps dude whose body is shaped like a **** mermaid, you will see plenty of chinese on american violence soon, we just detest ur way of life, we detest your people because they are weak, we detest ur hypocrisy, i welcome you to gangland hong kong and macau, in fact we triads own the netherlands as well.

you can come right down here, americans are no 1 on our hit list, their organs sell for good money cause it's layered with fat, body traficking have been good business lately round here, we should stop picking on the elderly and worthless, and kill even more worthless scum that are americans. oh yeah we dont use guns, just good old hatchets and baseball bats, hurts way more that way trust me, and the cops will just write it off as a gang war, i say kill all americans.

:) LOL So Crow, when you say "we Chinese", do you really mean the Chinese, or do you mean Americans? Haha Cause you sure as hell seem more like an American guy than a Chinese guy. I've never seen a Chinese guy attack an American guy unless he was bothered first. I am an American, dude, and they never bothered me before. LOL Look, why are you posting all this stuff here? This is an Orlando Magic board, post your stuff on some other board. This stuff is off topic. Let's just discuss basketball here.

Imitating Chinese when you are obviously against Chinese people is funny too. If you hate them so much , why are you pretending to be them?:) LMAO Maybe we should just ignore you and talk about Dwight instead. Haha Dwight would probably never do that to them, bcuz he's such a classy guy. Dude, you're just cluttering up the board and wasting out time. By the way, the Chinese loved Michael Phelps, they think he's great, they have him nothing but praise at the Beijing Olympics. You can tell from that that you're not really Chinese. ROFL The fact that you said that they're against him I guess shows how "Chinese" you really are. LOL

OK, whatever dude. Go back to discussing Dwight and the Magic on the board. Dwight really bounced back against the Bucks. He had a really great game, I saw the game. Go Magic!

And you go too Crow, you who spend all of your spare time doing this, get a life man, you "Chinese Guy" ;) LOLOL

Ok everyone needs to calm down here. The snake venom and the bitterness is not gonna get it done. On rare occasions when I am not right with my predictions I come back in here with my head held up high knowing that I am still very good at what I do. You folks on the other hand can't bring yourseves to sing my praises when it is so richly deserved.
The Magic have only played 1 good team so far this season.**** and that was last night. They failed the test. Folks when this team gets to playing good solid playoff like teams the losses will begin to mount. You heard it here first. NEXT!

In the previous 7 games before tonight where Dwight and Yao went head to head: Yao leads 5 games to 2 in victories. Yao is averaging 24 points and 9.3 rebs in those games. Dwight is averaging 11.4 pts and 9.9 rebs. Yao is shooting 55 percent, while Dwight is shooting 44 percent. Yao has 2.3 bpg, Dwight 1.4.
These numbers don't lie folks. Yao owns D-12. To Yao Dwight is just like a little kid. A total mismatch folks.
Actually the record is 7-0. The Rockets have won the last 7 against the Magic, he Rockets havent lost to the Magic since trading for T-Mac.
