Nice to see the team grind this one out. It is a good sign when you play poorly on offense and can still get it done thanks to the defense.
Foyle was tremendous along with Evans and Arroyo. They played big minutes in the final quarter and provided the team with a huge boost.
Once Cook gets in better shape, this bench will be even deeper.
If the defense continues at this level, along with the bench improvement, this team will be a major force.
GO MAGIC!!!!

IMO this team is a major force now.
Every team but the Spurs should fear them.

Congratulations MAGIC!
Tonight you showed us that you can play both offensive and defensive sides of a game. It's also nice to see improvement from the bench.

MO EVANS AND DOOLING NEED TO BE THE SUBS FOR THE BACK COURT WITH EVANS ABLE TO HIT THE 3 AND PLAY D THAT IS A HARD NOSED BACK COURT IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT. MAYBE STAN THE MAN MIGHT TRY THAT AGAINST SEATTLE PUT DOOLING AND MO AT THE SAME TIME AND SEE WUT TYPE OF PRODUCTION THOSE 2 CAN DO TOGETHER.

Still have to beat Detroit as well. Also Phoenix and Dallas. Right now they are a force. To be a major force they have to beat the exceptional teams atleast once. Especially when they play them on their own home floor. IMO then I will truly consider them a major force.
GO MAGIC!!! Keep up the good work.

What a great win for the Magic. I really hope they will go all the way this year. We at the Magic Kingdom has been disappointed for sooooooooo long that it's about time we get something in return.

The Magic schedule has been brutal. They did beat Boston and Cleveland which should count for something.

I believe this team will only get better as the season goes on. Go Magic!!!

It was a tough game to watch. Pretty ugly at times actually, but it was nice to see the way the reserves were stepping up. Same day the OS quoted SVG as saying he needed to play the bench more, "BANG".....he does. And they really won the game for us! CONGRATS! GO MAGIC!

Evans brought Ariza type energy and effort and obviously is a much better basketball player than Ariza. That trade is looking good to me.

Brian Schmitz, Why it is so hard to say Carlos Arroyo's performance was better than Nelson?

Is Nelson paying your salary? you always have to mention his name in all of your "articles" even tough is not relate to him.

I am not saying than Nelson did not play good,-- he has improved.

Magic were loosing with Nelson, but, Arroyo helped in the magic boost.
Just say it !

give the guy recognition !

Wow..liking this Evans kid. This cat works hard. One of the ugliest games I have ever sat through.
Grats to the Magic for never giving up, esp. Foyle and Evans. I thought Cook was supposed to be the 'good one.'

Mr. Biian Schmitz, there is not a single mentioning of Arroyos name on the game performance last night. You are suppose to be a writer for the Magic as a whole. Your bias against him is very obvious and players need positive comments to be stimulated.
Must congratulate SVG excellent rotattion on players so far.

Dude, you've gotta be kiddin me. Arroyo plays good once out of every 5 games, the other 4 he SUCKS. At least Nelson plays good every other game. Who sparked the 16-0 run in the second quarter(that was Jameer, not Arroyo). I'm not saying Jameer is a premier PG or anything, but he's a hell of alot better than Arroyo. Get a clue

This is the time of game that the Magic will lose last season, last year it was an atmosphere of giving up at the first adversity on the court, players and the coach breaking clipboards, VanGundy, keep a level of consistency in the mental game, no highs amd lows. He is the main reason, IMO, for the changing of the coulture here.
