Hope you enjoy that humble pie that we just SERVED you, Philly! Cry to David Stern to suspend Dwight so you can stay in this series, only to get SHALACKED by 25 on YOUR court!?! Better luck next year when you should learn that Game 1's don't win you a playoff series. You've gotta learn from your past mistakes! GO MAGIC!!!!!!!!!!

Run and hide, Run and hide anti-Magic crowd. How many times have you had to do this? Dang what a game. Rafer way to come through. Lewis earned his money tonight. JJ finally ........ wish you did that more often. Hedo gets kicked out ......... Bring on the Bulls, Bring on the Celtics .......... we will be ready. OT again for them .......... of course here in China I get the Rockets for the millionth time.

This will be an easy win for Philly tonight folks. No sense even watching it.

Look for the Magic to not reach 80 points in this one.

Should be a final score of Philadelphia 94 Magic 77.

Face it folks. The Magic have NO chance of winning tonight.

The Magic will back down and fold up camp like a flower wilting in the hot Florida sun.

another prediction by jim that flopped like how the sixers came to play lol lol lol

Awesome game tonight by our Orlando Magic!!!

Everyone stepped up tonight and made it happen. The POLISH HAMMER stepped in and beat them down in the paint.

LMAO probably won't be on here tonight. He will be spending the next few hours with his plastic JJ Reddick doll.

Wow!!! Be careful what you wish for DiLeo!

A few things to note:
1. DiLeo and Van Gundy did not greet/congratulate each other after the game.
2. The Magic players seem to have a lack of chemistry and always seem serious with one another with the exception of Howard and Turk. Nothing like the Cavs, at least.
3. Rashard has a MEAN post-up game!!

Jim......what do you have to say for yourself? Egg on your face for the second time in the series. Do not try to divert attention from your bad calls by issuing a one line rebuttle and then changing subjects like you usually do. YOU ARE NOT A FAN!

Wow. I wish I could have seen that coming, but I didn't. I thought the Magic would have a chance, but I never would have predicted a blowout. Fantastic effort. Rashard had a great overall game. JJ was on fire from 3 point land. Gortat was huge on the boards and had 4 steals! Why, why, why can't we experiment with having him play the 4 with Dwight at the 5?

Unfortunately, games like tonight, as well as his excellent rebounds per minute rate all year, are going to make it tough for the Magic to resign Gortat.

I thought Jim said that the one winning game one would go on and take the series. Dammit I am confused now!

And acually Jim you where wrong about three games because you predicted a Magic loss in the mythical game 7 that will never take place.

Rashard would average more points if he posts-up more often.

This game was won because Howard likes to camp out there for more than 3 seconds, also that brute..Gortat was fouling all the time and Orlando always fouls on defense.

Right, coach Dileo?

Jim was actually wrong many times in this series not just a "second time". He predicted every Magic win wrong since he picked Philly every time.

Enjoyed this. Philly played from behind the whole series except for one game. They managed two last second baskets to win games and that was it. I really respect their fire and do not die attitued. They mentally collapsed tonight though. No matter which team we play in the second round we need to jump on them game one. They should be both mentally and physically exhausted. However, Boston would handle it better than Chicago. NEXT!!
