Another crappy game. The Magic aren't even worth watching until the playoffs begin IMO.

Sit the starters...Its more important to have a healthy team going into the playoffs. Turk had to be helped off the court? Not good. Magic looked like a tired team on Friday...same ole on Sat. Give the team a rest.

Any word on Turk yet? I didn't watch game because it was meaningless. Hopefully ankle isn't too serious.

I agree. 0 mins for all starters but C. Lee.

Second verse, same as the first.

Losing 3 out of the last 4? And all 3 of the losses to the cellar-dwellers in the Eastern Conference?

It's one thing when the Lakers lose to Portland, a team that will actually be in the playoffs.

Sad end to an impressive season. That's not the way to go into the playoffs.

Folks I hate to say it but this sure enough looks like a first round playoff exit in the making.

Turkoglu is probably going to miss some playoff games. Lewis is hurting. And quite frankly Howard is unable to carry the team by himself. Atleast not yet anyway.

If Turk had to be helped off the court that does not look good at all. That is probably a severe sprain which will require atleast 10 days to 2 weeks of inactivity. He will probably miss 2 or 3 first round playoff games.

Howard and Turkoglu should have taken the night off too. SVG plays these guys too many minutes to begin with.

Hedo was nothing but a relentless chucker anyway. Magic are better off without him.

One thing about the Magic's losses right now. It sure brings the haters online.

I'm tossing out the rest of the regular season. The Magic truly are one of the 4 best teams in the league. The regular season is over. Time for the playoffs.

The Magic will cruise through the first round.

Ok everyone here needs to calm down. Talking like this season is over is simply not gonna get it done in here.

Even if Hedo is out for a little bit that is no big deal. The Magic are a better defensive team without him anyway.

In addition to this you don't have Hedo launching up all those bad shots and making a bunch of silly passes.

The focus will be there because it will have to be for the Magic to pick up the scoring slack. The Magic will HAVE to rely on their defense more which I think will be a good thing.

The wakeup call is here. Will the Magic answer the bell when the playoffs begin ?

Give me a break. Orlando will be lucky to get past the first round without Hedo in that lineup. Get real.
