This team really is pissing me off right now. Dwight is the only one you can count on night in and night out. Rashard Lewis is a 110 million dollar joke right now. Even Hedo has become undependable.
Courtney Lee and Dwight Howard are the only two guys that give 100% right now.
Are you kidding me? Dwight giving 100%? what a joke. He needs to grow a brain and Rashard needs to grow a backbone. How many blocks did Dwight get? How many rebounds in the second half. He is not ready to win a championchip and with this roster he never will. Unless Dwight is paired with a Lebron or DWade he will never get it. You all keep saying this team needs to play this or that way, but they are what they are and to change that there must be roster changes this group has picked.

Ok folks. I said the Pistons would win this game tonight and end their 8 game losing streak. I said the final score would be 89-84. It was 93-85. Close enough. I said Dwigh Howard would have 17 points and 12 rebounds. He had 21 points and 13 rebounds. Close enough. I said Stuckey, who has been miserable lately, and Hamilton would dominate. They dominated. So to say I called this win would be an understatement.

But I am not here seeking props. I am here to once again point out that the Orlando Magic WILL lose in the first round of the playoffs if they have to face the Pistons.

It will either be the Pistons or the Celtics that will put an end to the season for the Magic.

No excuses. Plain and simple. They are both too physical for the Magic. End of discussion.

I was at the game, if the game is officiated the same a both ends its a different ballgame. ina closely matched competitive ballgame these calls matter. u can say deeetroit adn go on and claim your scuminess as the armpit of america, but if the game is officiated fairly its a different outcome, and who the hell claims detroit? thats like being proud of being illiterate. highest unemployment, highest murder, lowest HS graduation. deetroit is deesgusting. pure scum of this nation. deetroit= single mother who didnt graduate high school 4 kids 4 different daddies.. pure scum, really is

Detroit have won so many games against Orlando, for a long time.
It gave Detroit a huge Confidence knowing that they will beat Orlando every time anyway. Meanwhile, it gave Orlando LESS Confidence knowing that they can not beat Detroit at all. That is a just mental game. Orlando needs more physical, driving thru and "Get Mad" mental to beat Detroit.
It is a mental game. Now it is time to build a Confidence and think positive. Go Magic Go! Can Do & Win!!
They need to get mad and play agressive and what ever, is not going to happen not with this group of whimps.f em

The part that disgusts me is that we are stuck with Rashard Lewis and his 110 million dollar contract and he gives us 10 points. Meanwhile Hedo gives us 13 points. What a pair of scrubs. They have no balls. When if ever will this team start fighting again? Time to look forward to football again. This team is a waste of time.
F*ck you Magic!

I love you Maqic, but it's getting more difficult for me to use my tickets every time you lose to a team like this. The other day I thought Van Gundy was being too rough on you when you lost to the bulls, but Van Gundy IS right. The real men will win the title. Man up!

I keep seeing how Howard is the only one trying to go for the rebound during offense. Why doesn't anyone else try for the rebound? I see AJ always gives the ball to Turkuglu and then goes to the corner and stays there. So freaking predictable. It's as if we're sitting on quicksand watching you play.

They beat us awithout Chauncey Billups. They beat us without Rip Hamilton. They beat us without Iverson. They beat us. They always beat us.

Detroit is too physical for the Magic. Boston is too physical for the Magic.

This team is filled with a bunch of powder puffs who like to dance around the perimeter like a bunch of sissy's.

Right now Detroit is going to do everything they can to make sure they finish at number 3 in the East. Fcae it folks. The Magic will remain at number 3. They are too far out in front to drop down to 4. And there is no way they will be able to compete with Boston and Cleveland for the top two spots.

eerr good one..another night for you at the Parliment house?? I mean do you actually have a valid point about the Orlando Magic other than my spelling?? I may not be able to spell, but your Magic can't beat the Pistons, Celtics,..i.e the two teams that matter..

But I tell you what I can spell..

The Magic are the Pistons [email protected]...!

How does 21 out of 26 feel buddy?? Tell me?? LOL..Why don't you head down to ClubHouse and maybe have them put on replays of the last time the Magic beat the Pistons in the Playoffs..you know..over 12 years ago?? Ha Ha..oh and since then how does 04, 06, and 07 feel?? Did you enjoy it?? Huh pal?

How many rings do the Magic have?????? Ahh I see LET ME SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU ZERO.!!!

To the guy from Hicksville, NY: You are always welcome to post here. We need you to help us (pessimistic/realistic magic fans) convince our poor gm and the bandwagoneers here that a title run is not possible this season.

FAIL = ORLANDO'S ATTEMPT AT HAVING A LEGIT NBA CONTENDER.

It's always fun talking to you guys, it's a habbit now..maybe when you actually beat the Pistons come talk?

Can't wait till the Pistons play you fools again in 2 weeks..ha ha, maybe this time Lee will go down and start actually crying along with the rest of your froot loop players.

Good job tonight by the way..palying against the Pistons "BACK UP" POINTGAURD??

I give up....
This was going our way...and something happened...
I give up....I take it all back....
Something is wrong with this team and we just cannot pinpoint it right now...
We are obviously not mature enough I guess....We need to find that quick or its going to be a disappointing postseason.
I'm still optimistic about this team but we have lost our first half identity.
We are back to "We have no Idea which team will show up" routine again.
And this time its NOT due to JAMEER. We have that area covered its simply about this team playing together and be focused and rebound.
I'm depressed, ashamed and very disappointed.
The Team should feel the same way.
We are playing again some sorry teams now and it will take a while before this team can redeem itself again before National Media.
Obviously after that West coast successful junket, MAGIC could not handle all that media and they lost their grove.
Time to GROW up once again.

Can somebody shed some light on this!
I know JIM will give me some here...but can anyone shed some decent analysis on this game.
I DVR'd this game now I don't even wanna watch it obviously.

It's obvious that when Jameer went down the Magic quit on the season.

This is the most gutless team that has ever played here. So much talent and so little fight. Remember the "Heart and Hustle" team? At least thy fought. These cowards won't even put of a fight they just lay down.

The Magic will be a .500 club the rest of the way essentially. They will win one lose one, win two lose two..yada yada yada.

The way they look right now I can honestly say they may not even make it out of the first round unless they play a team like themselves...like when they played Toronto last year. That was just basically an extension of the regular season.

But if they play a team who decides to be a little physical with them then they are done.

It is just not in Dwight's nature to be nasty out there. Why not give Rasheed an elbow to the jaw ? It's amazing what that can do to an opposing player.

Instead Howard takes it out on the officals with his constant whining. Simply put, that's not gonna get it done.

The Magic need one or two big bruisers to be signed before March 1st. It probably won't happen though.

The Magic will either do nothing or they will sign 1 or 2 more powder puffs.
