Yeah disect this game and figure out what went wrong. Orlando was competing very well till sometime in the 2nd quarter and then they unraveled.

Orlando should come back much better. Coaching staff just needs to figure out what went wrong.

Give me a break. The Magic are missing wide open shots and shooting under 40%. And yes Kobe is lighting it up tonight, not that we didn't expect that. Its one game and only one game.
Yea well the Lakers are 43-0 after winning "one game".

Gotta give the Lakers credit. If the refs keep calling the games the way they called it tonight, L.A. will sweep Magic.

Coincidentally, Lakers outscored Magic at the same time that we saw long stretches of 2nd and 3rd where Lakers couldn't get called for even intentional fouls.

Magic need to play through the horrible lop-sided officiating the way they did vs. Boston and Cleveland.

I'm sorry, you are right the Magic should just throw in the towel and not even show up for the next game.
No matter how ugly it was tonight and what the record is when the Lakers win game one it does not change the fact the Magic could not hit water falling out of a boat tonight.
Change that then lets see what happens.
I also think that Boston had a similar stat when leading 3-2 in a series. No?

Go Magic!!

C'mon bro Kareem, Magic and Worthy are not suiting up. So pointing to a stat that includes history is kind of useless. That's like the stat about Boston having never lost a game 7. Then they did.

That probably what the coach of team #23 said 20 playoff series ago.

I don't think you can blame this on the officiating. Poor shooting yes, officiating no.

Nobody even said for the Voodoo to throw in the towel. All thats being said is statistic-wise the Lakers are the better team. They have a chance at beating the Lakers if they regroup. Playing them with Kobe in his prime is very tough.

Well those guys are no longer playing so their accomplishments won't help anybody in this series. You would have to be deluded to think it would.

Now that Jameer has gotten to play in the Finals...keep him on the bench and put the personnel out on the court that got the Magic to the Finals!
