Well that was a real ball game between to lousy coached teams.
I want the magic to win every game but I now agree with Shaq that VanGundy sucks as a coach.
I think the Garrity minutes was another smack in face for Redick. Poor kid, I feel sorry for him and detest Otis Smith & A-hole Van Gundy for their actions.
Love the win.....hate the coach.

is van gundy ever happy? he is always yelling and turning around disgusted...i mean, there are mistakes in every game ,misses ,turnovers , fouls....if he wants a perfect game he should be the point guard and let somebody evaluate his job with a microscope and throw a tantrum every time he doesn't play with perfection.

Until this team finds a focus, they will end up with a decent regular season record and then get bounced in the first round of the playoffs. If they think they will just be able to flip a switch in April, they're fooling themselves. Their main advantage right now is that a lot of other teams in the Eastern Conference suck.

The Magic would find every possible way to lose games against sub .500 teams with Brian Hill last year. Now, the Magic are one of only four teams in the Association with 30-Ws under their belts, are playing 12 games over .500, yet there are people out there who hate Stan Van Gundy because he keeps Reddick the bench warmer glued to the bench. Reddick must be doing something wrong in practice or in the lockerroom that's keeping him in the doghouse.

Your reasoning sucks too. The Magic are one of four teams with 30-Ws in the NBA. Three of the teams with 30-Ws are in the Eastern Conference, which means the Magic would also be among the top teams in the Western Conference if they played in that bracket.

Didnt waste my time watching the game but saw some highlights. I will go with the VanGundy sucks crowd. Actually both VanGundys suck lol. No wonder they both got fired although I dont like the way Riley fired SVG he did the right thing. And O My G how bad is Jeff as an analyst UGH. Heres a tidbit, Jeff couldnt make the Yale basketball team. LOL. Plus i'll never forget Alonzo dragging Jeff around on his leg, Loved that.
Oh well I had a good MillerTime tonight so i'll get on to bed.
A win is a Win.
Lets have a MILLER!

Well, the anti-Magic crowd have nowhere to go now with their negative predictions but the playoffs. With almost nothing but home games from now to the end of March the Magic will put together several winning streaks together. It is too bad we will have to put up with the garbage until they are proven wrong once again at playoff time. The Magic will be in great position to advance to the second round and if they get Boston instead of Detroit they have a chance to go on. If Cleveland can beat Detroit again this year,......... well, I know thats dreaming, but to you anti Magic people they do have a chance. 2nd round yes, 3rd round, if things bounce their, finals, hmmmmmmmm if they really have things bounce their way. This is the year they gain valuable playoff experience, add one or two pieces this summer, get Battie back and they will be one of the best in the East.

In case you havent noticed, Search4Knowledge, the Magic have already gone out West and bounced many of those teams on their home court. So it doesnt matter if its a Western team or an Eastern team. The Magic have beaten them.

Hedo definitely deserved to be in the all star game. If he keeps playing like he is right now, he will be for sure.

When you have a team in transition like the Magic are right now, nothing is always going to go as planned. You have to try different things, and find what works and what doesn't. This team is doing incredibly well this year, especially with a new coach. Things will get better, with time. It won't happen overnight.

GO MAGIC!!!!!!!

What is he supposed to give them lollipops every time they make a basket? That is why he is a good coach and you are a loser making stupid comments on a board.

That was a gutty game where little defense was played but we got away with a victory. Road games are never easy and you cant be too disappointed with a win.

I called this win way back in November. That makes me 88 percent accurate this year in my predictions.
