This article is crap. Bad jokes,so one sided for the Magic and full of meaningless Van Gundy quotes. Bottom line is that Van Gundy is trying to make this bigger then it is in order to cover up his terrible coaching. His team is playing terrible in this series and are being pushed to the brink by a bad Sixers team. Whats next Stan? Another verbal brawl with Shaq? What a loser.....

I said last night that DiLeo always looks like he's about to cry. Guess I'm right.

Let's see. The New Jersey Nets finished 12th out of 15 in the conference, and you've got the nerve to complain about Stan's coaching? The Nets finished with a 34-48 season, versus the Magic's 59-23, and Stan's a bad coach?

Must be something in the water. That's all I can figure.

WELCOME TO THE DRAMA THAT IS THE NBA PLAYOFFS!

If they suspend Howard for that elbow in the face, then the league needs to look into game 1 when Dalembert hit Howard in the face and scratched his eye.

Tony Dileo is just a big baby and needs to man to be a coach in this league.

Watched the video
. To say there arms got tangled is misleading. Dalembert was ramming into Howard with his forearm and simply pushing Howard under the basket with all his muster. Not a legal move and Dalembery was the first to push Howard with his forearm. Suspension?? No. Fine?? Yes. Fine Dalembert also. The refs missed his flagrant and purposeful push into Howard.

Looks like a suspension to me.
Gortat/Battie will have to step up big and HEDO/RASHARD better not take a night off.
Honestly, this should have been over already but we put ourselves in this situation.
Hell, we could be going fishing come this wkend....
We better show up.
I see Gortat/Battie stepping up big!

I never understood the inconsistencies of NBA officiating. NBA rules are stretched and then contracted from game to game. Three seconds is three seconds, traveling is traveling. Subjectivity should certainly not be the rule, and in the case of three second violations these calls can easily and objectively be ruled. A DVR review of the game clearly shows Howard parked in the lane last night. DiLeo might be whining but he is right. 100%. There is too much riding on these games to let mercurial referees and strident abuses of the rules to go unchecked. Van Gundy has got to relax and talk to the Superhero about staying within the rules, particularly the easily determined ones.

Once again, poor taste shown by a Sentinel columnist in the never-ending quest to out-glib each other. The world is facing a pandemic and this guy makes a quip about Mexico. Some subjects shouldn't be fodder for tongue-in-cheek nonsense. What's next a Kaylee Anthony reference?

You forgot to finish the paragraph: "Without Howard, THEY LOSE BY TWELVE."

I appreciate Battie and The Martian, but even together they'll come up a dozen points short.

lol....and that too is a possibility and i have no sympathy for my MAGIC right now.
This series should have been over yesterday but ohh well.
Now we are about to miss key players and its in Philly.
Yes, we could lose big and by 12 but then again, Gortat can easily pull down 15/15 a night and we get get aggressive and IF...[BIG IF] HEDO can go back to his old form, then its OVER!

Really poorly written piece. Almost no real information, and the choice of words is awful.
Dwight was feeling especially "frisky"? Ummm..ok.
The series has some new "zestiness"? Ummmm..ok.
And references to tweety birds and mexican pig farms? Come on, terrible.
Dwight will be suspended, and he deserves it. Whether or not you believe he camps out in the lane, he certainly meant to land that elbow on Dalembert. Per the rulebook, if you elbow someone above the shoulders then you must be suspended. The magic were lucky that they had Dwight in last night's game because, realistically, he should have been ejected for that play.
Anyone see Rondo's play last night as well? The league has some deciding to do today.

Howard "flailed away"? Actually, he looked at the back of Sam Dalembert's head and threw an elbow strike. Even the UFC won't let you elbow someone in the back of the head.

All I have been hearing all year is how this Magic team is elite and a serious contender for the East. Having watched this team through five playoff games, I will say without reservation this team doesn't have what it takes to win deep in the playoffs. As entertaining a series as this has become, it has exposed the Magic's short comings. The stategy is simple, run when the Magic miss their three point shots. This team doesn't have the athletes to get back on D. As talented as Howard is, the Defesive Player of the Year, he is a non-factor outside of a half court game, and late in a tight game when Van Gundy doesn't trust him to knock down free throws. This team reminds me of the Phoenix Suns of years past. They scored a lot of points, they won alot of regular season games, and could not get stops on defense when they needed them. They were completely useless when shoting less than 40 percent from the three point line, which by the way is extermely difficult in the playoffs. So with that being said good luck with that Orlando. TNT is already get the fishing picture ready.
