Full story: Orlando Sentinel

The Orlando Magic live and die by the 3-point shot Monday night. The Dallas Mavericks escaped the Magic's long-range artistry in the final seconds.

Stan van blew this one with his sub patterns. Dooling was great and helped keep them in the game. At crunch time who does he put in but Nelson who couldnt hit the broad side of a barn . Dwight had a big first quarter and then played part of a ghost as team quit getting him the ball.
Must agree with tragic tragic about Nelson. There are times he goes braindead and dribbles too much. Dooling does berret job.

"It's a broken record," Van Gundy said. "We couldn't stop them. I'm not going to sit here and praise our guys. We didn't guard anybody."

Losing 5 of the last 6 - Sweet!

Yup - Totally different team this year - Totally.

8th seed here we come!

Magic's record before trade: 10-2
Magic after trade: 7-7

Without Outlaw on the bench the Magic have no chance.

Who robbed what?? Replay shows his toe was on the 3 point line therefore it was not a 3 but a 2. In your opinion the refs should have overlooked that fact and ruled in favor of the magic. Ya sure we sure got robbed in your world and you are a duh person-

"Bandwagon riders....this is your stop to get off." True fans will ride out this bit of a rough patch. This is still a relatively young season, and we have proven we can play with anybody in the league. Great things will happen for this team this year. GO MAGIC!

P.S. If you're throwing them out, I'll gladly take all the Magic stuff you bought at Wal-Mart when we were riding high early in the year.

Wow - You think we are going to get number one in the lottery again!

You are right, we should be positive - Watching the Magic in the ping-pong ball drawing is always fun!

Remember my prediction a few games ago, when I said they'd slide into being a .600 team? Now I believe they'll be a .500 team by the All-Star game.

They're in danger of becoming the old Buffalo Braves. McAdoo would score 49 a game, but so would the rest of the team, and they'd lose 110 - 98. The team needs to produce and defend more, so Howard won't be burned out in a couple of years, and looking for another team.

I though that Van Gundy said that he was going to be making some changes to the lineup, did anyone see those changes last night because I sure as hell didn't. He definitely needs to take Nelson out of the starting lineup and either put Dooling or Arroyo in (Dooling would be it as of right now due to the fact that Arroyo is injured). And for crying out loud, put JJ in!!! Look what happened last night, as soon as he got the ball in the end, he sunk a 3!!! I mean seriously, Van Gundy is wasting all of our good players on the bench when he should be playing them!!!! ERRRR!!!

Get Nelson aka the Ball Hog outta there and but Dooling in!!!!

WE WANT JJ REDICK!!!!

The mantra during every Magic workout from here on in should be DEFENSE. Fans who go to Amway Arena need to scream DEFENSE at the top of their lungs. Van Gundy must demand DEFENSE in exchange for minutes on the floor. DEFENSE is nothing more than wanting the ball more than the other guy. It means playing on your toes and never on your heels. It means challenging every shot, boxing out and swinging your elbows at someone's chin if you have to. Wednesday the Magic go up against the Great Wall. It's a great opportunity to practice their new mantra.

"They were able to get what they wanted," Dooling said. "Defense is our Achilles' heel. That's our reputation."

And that reputation is something that the Magic work hard to earn on the floor every night....
