What da hell was that? No fight, we didnt show up tonight. Im glad I didnt watch the 2nd half. Alston will be suspended next game, and we are in trouble of losing game 3 at home. Still think we will win the series, but if we keep playing like we have the last 5 quarters, then we will be out quick thats for sure.

Egad that was ugly. Nice to see we know how to lay an egg. Dang I wanted to see them go for the juggular instead it was a rest for them. Now we are in a war. I hope we put up a fight. NEXT

JJ has one foul and makes final 3 pt shots to end the 1st qtr. Where is JJ in second qtr?
I am sick for the Orlando fans. JJ leaves with score 26-21, returns at 6:35 in 2nd with Magic down 41-28. Stan is a joke of a coach.
Houston is plsed with Rafer gone. Rafer, last 4 yrs= 37%-34%, 39%-35%, 37%-36%, 37%-32%---career? 38%-35%! And, JJ could play point - especially if Stan had given him the chance. Nice defense on House, Rafer- nice slap... Rafer is the worst starter in NBA.

A good coach = knows there is no way c Lee, etc will win for him- only a gamble on JJ gives Magic ANY CHANCE AT ALL. I HOPE JJ GETS OUT OF THERE AND SHOWS HOW STUPID THIS COACH AND TEAM HAS BEEN( WE KNOW IN LA HOW 2 OF YOUR PLAYERS DISLIKES JJ AND CONTROL THE COACH) WHAT A TOTAL JOKE. RAFER OR LEE OR PIETRUS OR JOHNSON CANT CARRY JJ'S JOCK....ONLY ORLANDO WOULD NOT REALIZE THIS.

What a horrible game. I guess I will just have to focus on the bigger picture. The big picture is that we went into Boston and snatched the home court advantage away from them.

Why do the Magic play so unspired at times? Where was the urgency tonight?

Hopefully Friday the Magic give us a blowout game to redeem themselves.

Can anyone tell me why STAN TOOK JJ OUT AFTER A FINE 1ST QUARTER?
WITH A SCORE OF 26-21, THE GAME COULD HAVE ENDED ENTIRELY DIFFERENT IF JJ HAD STAYED IN......

SOMEONE TELL ME..........PLEASE.... WHY DID JJ NOT ENTER 2ND QTR UNTIL 6:35?

HE WAS HOT AT END OF 1ST QTR......I JUST DONT GET IT

Jeepers do you know anything about basketball. The starters get a rest and then come back in sometime during the second quarter. Why do you even bother to ask the question? JJ is our 4th string SG and only is playing because the others are injured.

What in the world are you smokin' JJ play point. JJ has his strong points and has played a couple of quarters of good ball lately. I hope he continues to play well but PG egads. JJ is guardable by good players. It is why he doesnt play much. As soon as Boston or any team for that matter pays attention to him he cant score. He only scores against teams that drop their guy off of him. As soon as they see he will hit some shots they play him tight and he is done for the night. If they find out he cant hit a broadside of a barn then they have a free defender to double down with. So he has to be pulled. JJ is extremely inconsistant and it has only been very recently he has been able to put more than one good game together. He is easily guardable by NBA pros. This isnt college ball anymore guy.

WOW.

I now think Boston DID win Game 1 from the standpoint of "who's going to impose their will on who".

This team is a dichotomy and the Orlando "Softies" showed up last night. I'm glad they were mad about game one - otherwise it would have been a 75 point loss.

After that showing, I don't think there's anyway they win this series.

They should be embarrassed, but once again, I think they just don't give a damn.

And I don't know what's going on with SVG, but the team is obviously not listening.

This is not good ... and as I said before, I'll bet that SVG will "want to spend more time with his family" real soon - like he did in Miami.

DH will be leading the second Magic coach revolt.

And SVG is a really good coach.

And JJ. You probably know he's not exactly my favorite player, but he's proven he can score over the last three games.

And he's not on the floor?!?!?!?

Even I would have put JJ in.

We're done.

Is Turkoglu on some king of medication or something?

Did he even understand he was in a basketball game?

At least he showed some fight - despite how embarrassingly gay it was.

I totally agree, but last night I would have let him in, because at least he would occupy a defender that couldn't go double another player.

You simply cannot be champions and come out and play any game the way the Magic did last night.

If the Magic lay down again on Friday and resort to their too familiar goofing-off-on-the-bench, I-don't-care attitude ... I hope the suckers, errr fans, attending the game will let them know how unacceptable it is.

Spoiled rich brats who don't deserve you as fans.

Alston has always been a poor shooter - can't even make easy layups like any 5th graders can. I wince every time he shoots the ball.

That was the most lackluster effort i have ever seen them play. Boston just played more physical and with more energy this time but the Magic didn't respond at all.
