I think Orlando needs to take a couple of things away from this game. 1. Be more aggressive. You're on the road. You can't let a guy inbound a pass to a guy who can jack up a 3s like that. 2. The fans in Toronto showed up the fans in Orlando. Let's not let this happen when they're back here for game 5. Fill the arena.

At least our "lame" fans will be making noise in the second round vs detroit in the O-rena...there's no way Toronto will win this series.

We might have played with less intensity and had all of our weaknesses on display be if we go back to using our fundamentals we can beat the Raptors. My hat goes off to their fans and their players for the great shooting, albeit the flopping ticked me off. Euro players always do that, IE the SPURS, so its quite common even if I hate it. Game 4 will be a tough battle but we cannot allow them to come out on fire. it is what we did to them for 2 games and they used a little bit of our strategy right back on them. Lets remember how to win on the road. Raptors are definitely beatable and they soft inside. If I was Van Gundy i would hand off to Turk or Shard and say drive it each time. Bosh and those euro geeks are softer than Hagen Daz Ice Cream on a hot summers day. They are guaranteed to foul us, and if we miss Dwight needs to mow um down for the rebound.(see game 1 and 2)
Drive it to the hole
RAPTORS ARE EXTINCT.......IM RICK JAMES B*I*T*C*H*E*S

Craptors suck. They got their one win, now they can plan for the draft. I guess there must be some good gambling joints for the refs to bet on in Canada, that was horrendous for the 2nd straight game.

Home Court Advantage changes the game, doesn't it?

tough game tonight considering we flew all the way up there after we just played 2 nights ago in a thriller. There wasnt alot of energy and the guys just looked extremely tired. we had some chances to get back in but when your tired, can't play defense and the opposition hits every freggin shot they take, thats what happens. To be honest I'm not sure what Toronto is actually getting happy about, they aren't going anywhere for a very very very long time, if at all in their pitiful existance.

Go Magic win this series in front of the home crowd.

I got one for you, since all they do is flop, fall on the floor and cry for fouls...The Toront Actors, kinda sounds like raptors.

NBA....Where when your team wins they can do no wrong, and when they lose it's the refs fault happens.

Come on everyone Magic defended their home court Raps are doing the same. Sit back a relax and enjoy what is going to be a fantastic series.

Wow, the Raptors are the biggest babies in sports! I've never seen such poor acting, although it seems the refs bought it! I hope the Magic come out strong and tough Saturday...the Raptors are definitely beatable!
