There are over 100 rebounds in a game, do you think Howards going to get all of them? And Dunleavy scores 3/4 of his points outside the paint. He may not get 28, but he'll get 20. Pacers 113 Magic 107

Magic 110, Pacers 94. With Howard clogging the lane, no one is going to put up crazy numbers. Dunleavy and Granger -might- put up ok numbers because the magic perimeter defense is spotty, but they're gonna play O'Neal single coverage with Howard, so no one is going to be consistently open. The Pacers' best bet is to start Murphy with O'Neal to space the floor and have Dunleavy pick-and-roll with O'Neal, forcing Howard to play D outside the paint.(Don't think I've seen O'Brien call pick-and-roll out of a set play, anyone know if he does?)

Tinsley-8 assists, 6 turnovers
O'Neal-18pts, 8 rebounds
Dunleavy-20pts
Granger-16pts

Dwight Howard is one of my favorite players in the league. He is everything an NBA star should be. Plus he is a monster in the paint.
