Still dribbling balls off their foot with Brighthouse cable TV. Would have been nice to have seen more games. Redick looks like a boy among men and gets treated as such. I wouldn't play him either :)

If I didn't live in an apartment, I sure as hell wouldn't keep Brighthouse as my provider. We are in Orlando and can't watch the games! COME ON! I agree, Redick looks horrible on the court, big deal he can shoot.

On topic; the Magic will want to continue where they left off with their statement-making process. The only thing to talk about concerning the Timberwolves is where they'll land in the lottery. I'll go with the Magic by at least 7.
Quick answer -- do not like the service satelite provides either. I think they both need a little fiber optic competition. Back to the topic

Hi. I'm Happy. I like to say "are you Happy Pappy?"

Let's look on the Brighthouse side of things,ok? They make lots of money and that's a good thing, so be Happy, ok. It doesn't matter if you dont get TV shows you want, Ok. Be Happy with the ones you get.

Next, is that JJ Redick is a great player and it's great that he doesn't have to play and he can stay healthy and make $3 million dollars a year. That would make anyone Happy!

Besides, when he gets away from Orlando he will get to play and be a big star and then make probably $5 million dollars, which might make him Happy but that probably wouldn't be as good as not playing, staying healthy and making $3 million dollars a year.

What makes Mr. Stan Happy is to not play JJ Redick and to make all those fans mad/sad.
I hate it when someone is mad/sad. Even though Mr. Stan is Happy I hope fans can be Happy as I hate to see anyone not Happy, Ok.

Sooooo, let's all stay Happy and be Happy for JJ Redick and be Happy for Mr. Stan and Brighthouse and people that get Brighthouse too. That way everyone will be Happy!

this a big step for this young orlando team. imagine how good this team will be next year. we can upgrade the point guard through trading and we will get tony battie back next season and we can get asolid back up forward in the draft. and as an added bonus cory magette would like to back to orlando but i don't think he will come back for the mle so the onl way we could get him is through a sign and trade deal with the clippers but i doubt either team would be willing to do this.anyway i am just glad we are in hte playoffs and i want to see how our players react in the playoffs.

There should be every opportunity for the starters to get a nice workout followed by some good rest, tonight. Not to underestimate the Wolves, but aside from Al Jefferson, they are a pretty woeful team, and if the Magic come out focused they should dispatch them comfortably. Let's hope our guys realise that, and come out with some fire from the first tip.

This is a big step for this team to reach the 50 win plateau.

The addition of Rashard Lewis has really been a big addition to this team. The fact that Grant Hill didn't resign has really been a blessing in disguise, because I don't think Hedo would of blossomed like he did with Grant on the team.

Like we've talked about all year long, the Magic need to secure another big body that can rebound and defend. As most of us know, we really don't know what we have in Gortat or Augustine because they have not played any significant minutes. SVG must see something in practice that we don't because he doesn't have the confidence in these guys.

Let's get a win tonight and start getting pumped up for the playoffs.

IMO, I hope we get the Sixers in the first round!

Surely the fact that he can't beat out Mo Evans and Keith Bogans, two career backups, for playing time is a fair indicator that star status is not something he is likely to achieve in the NBA?

I have a feeling that will not happen unless we have a 30pt lead and that "five O" WIN is in the bag.

Maaan i'm 50/50 on that coccoa...Can you imagine we get Sixers adn get wacked in teh first round....Not only that its a possibility but also NOT coool at all. So on the other hand I might as well get Arenas' Wizards. It wouldnt hurt as much and if we do beat them, it will be Sweeter. IMHO, Beating Sixers would not mean much to me at all. Thats just me.

Only by 7??....That would be acceptable if JJ/Gortat play considerable minutes. If all our starters play as usual, we should WHOOP ASS by at least 18.

I think that SVG need to combine his starter with his beanch this week if he want to have a shot in the Play Off. All NBA champion use his beanch on the Play Off becuase is a very long and strong post season and the starters get tired
1- give a rest to his starters
2- Build comfidence in his beanch
3- Give the playing time to the beach that he did't gave in the regular season.

No team can win with his starters only
