Not this time... Jim you missed you prediction!!! what a blowout!!! Is Bosh too much for Howard??? Calderon definitely is too much for Magig guards... Toronto shot over 50%... I guess no defense again, and again...

For the one that wished K Thomas was traded to Orlando... your dream went to San Antonio...

tonight we were just completely outplayed. No energy at all this game until the 4th quarter, which is unacceptable. This team isn't going to win anything due to the very bad defense we play along with inconsistancy. Howard had a good game statistics wise but he was greatly outplayed by Bosh. Howards knock coming out of school was what???He was too nice and its really starting to irritate me more and more. The smiling, laughing, joking with other players and hugging opponents during the game needs to STOP!!!!! You want to play basketball and it be just a game, go play in a rec league, you want to be GREAT and win championships, you go to WAR!!!!

No defense at all whatsoever tonight. Howard was so wrapped up with seeing if he could keep up the scoring pace with Bosh that he refused to make any body contact with him. Once again his agenda was simply to put up his numbers tonight on the offensive end. His selfishness returned again for this one. That trickled down to his teammates and this one was easy for Toronto. Hopefully these teams dont meet in the playoffs otherwise it will be a clean sweep for Toronto.
Calderon looked like Magic Johnson out there. Delfino wasn't missing anything he put up, and Moon played like an All Star.
They were able to penetrate at will in addition to Bosh being given the Royal Red Carpet treatment. Once again it is all about defense. If they keep playing defense like they did tonight then they will get bumped out of the playoffs in a clean sweep.

Exactly Bobby. This guy should be setting the tone on defense. Look at KG in Boston. And supposedly KG is DH's idol. Someone has got to lay the lumber on someone just one time. Put someone in the third row the next time they take it to the hole. No toughness at all. And this trickles down to the whole team. They see Howard laughing and giggling and not being aggessive and they go out and do the same thing. Once again Dwight tries to do nothing but score tonight and once again it winds up being a lackluster effort on defense.

I look forward to seeing Nanningbob's post later. There will be no way to put any kind of a positive spin on this one. This was just an old fashioned a** whoopin'. Tonight was an example of one team wanting it more than the other.

I do believe that people have been frightened off tonight by this pathetic effort by the Magic. It is as though they feel there is no sense even posting anything tonight. They all must realize that the game speaks for itself. Also they all know that once again I called this lackluster debacle. They are too frightened to face the music I guess. Dont worry folks. It is not like I am going to tell you over and over that I called this one.

Jim, youve got to stop the predictions, its getting embarrasing. At least predict losses instead of jixing us like that.

100 points after three quarters? Wow!! For a while I thought Bosh was alot of hype. I've changed my perception tonight.

What say you Jim? We had a hard time defending the pick and roll tonight.

Tonights game showed what Orlando is lacking. No other big man to help out Dwight down low. And no size at the point guard position. And Otis has done what to help this so far ? Ah yeah that's what I thought. First round sweep folks. You read it here first.

Jim, hey brother, you've got a very short term memory. Have you been hitting the weed? I pulled your prediction and copied it below:

hate to do it folks..I hate to do it...but I predict a Magic win tonight. Now I know you are probably all thinking "Oh no Jim don't do it". "Please pick them to lose so that they will win". People have no fear. After all when have I ever been wrong about my predictions...recently?

Agree that D Howard should take a leader position in this team. He should stop thinking like a Harlem Globetrotter player. This is NBA baby! On the other hand,Bosh was great. One of the reasons was because his Point Guard played for him like a real partner. This Calderon guy had 13 assist! I think if we have a real Point Guard in this team Howard's life will be easier. Otis, remember that you have until tomorrow to trade Jameer!!!

I've watched this team since Day 1, but tonight it was hard to sit through it. Jim's right, the game speaks for itself. Makes you want to go out and sign Bill Laimbeer and Rick Mahorn.

The Magic blew their wad last night against the Pistons and laid a big ole defenseless egg tonight!

Also, Jim you wrote if they Magic play the Raptors in the playoffs they would get swept. I seriously doubt it. Remember, we beat them in their house already once this season and I have a feeling we are going to want some revenge in two weeks at home.

Tonight's game was kind of a reversal of last night's game.

Bottom line...no defense. Raptors were fresher and had more energy. But I don't put all the blame on players. Van Gundy needed to make adjustments and he didn't. Pick and roll accounted for about 75% of raptors points. DH will continue to grow....I think Spurs made the best trade of all. Magic don't get past 2nd rd with this team. They need a true PF. Peatreaus?????

Cocoa Beach Fan if you read that quote carefully you will see that I did not have sexual relations with that woman..I mean..I didn't inhale..no I mean I really never picked the Magic to win tonight. I predicted that they "could" win. But I picked them to lose.
