Actually I didn't think it would be that close. What terrible shooting, except for Dwade...he can't win by himself though, just like I said earlier.

Good to see SVG still has no faith in his bench whatsoever. I can hardly wait till the playoffs... who shall we have win this year Celtics or Lakers? Any votes?

Lee had a good game off of the bench, as did Battie. AJ had a few good plays. Gortot, not so hot, but good minutes off the bench. Oh, sorry, you only have eyes for JJ.

On a less obvious note: great lock-down D in the forth quarter. It's nice to see that we can play an overall lousy offensive night and still win.

Simple, the new Magic arena has been drawing fire being that we are in a recession and Orlando is going 500 million in debt to build a new arena for a crappy team.

So, the owner (Mr. DeVos, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_DeVos ), you know the 73rd richest man in the US and the 249th richest man in the world) said: "Hey, let me win a few games here!"... So, they will win a few games and go to the playoffs where they will lose/choke.

Magic suck and will always suck.

Letting Shaq go showed they had no interest in winning, just bilking the city for hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars.

Isn't it past your bedtime yet. You're talking out of your head again. Your nurse will be back soon, so try not to wet yourself before she's there to change you!

A lot of people were still fuming about the Brighthouse situation. They felt like they were mislead. It appeared like the channel would simply be added at no additional cost. But as most of you know by now the only way to get the channel is if you have digital cable. Otherwise it is an extra $6.95 a month to have a smart box for digital purposes.

Simply put, this is not gonna get it done. These poor folks waited all this time to have this channel added to their lineup so they could watch the Magic games. And now they have to fork over 7 bucks a month ?

Like I have always said, it is all about money. The timing couldn't have been more perfect also. They suddenly reached this deal just at a time when most of the games will be on FSN.

I am thankful that I can see all the Magic games. I just hate to see other people get jerked around by all the typical corporate bs.

Great defense by the Magic again tonight! It is nice to see them winning games when the offense isn't running on all cylinders.

Turk couldn't hit the side of a barn tonight. Lewis was steady again as was Jameer and C.Lee. Battie did good also. Dwight got it done with another double double.

The Magic tied a franchise record for the most wins after 33 games. This team is for real folks. Get your tickets now. Or you could stay at home and watch it on Brightho....ooops...I mean you can pay 7 bucks a month to catch some Magic action.

How many games before Courtney Lee starts? He's really improving quickly at both ends of the floor.

Loved the team D tonight. That will lead to success in the playoffs.

Cavs are best in the east because they play consistent defense. The magic are really good, not great. (can't stand the celtics)

Another win for the Magic. They are impressive at home(14-3) despite a mediocre crowd. If the fans want this to be a championship team, they need to come out and support these guys. I know it was a sell out tonight but the team needs more consistent support. I think that the Shaq and penny teams did so well because of the fan support was awesome. I know the economy sucks, but look at some other towns fan attendance, and they are in worse shape than us. This team is for real. Maybe better than the shaq teams...

Just to let the exec's at BH know, I watched the Magic game despite of not having to pay that extra $6.95 to get that digital box. It's call the internet guys. In fact, I didn't have to pay anything extra. I'm sure you already knew about that. When I do own my own place, you can guarantee my name won't be your list of customer you can screw each month.

Get your facts straight. Shaq left because Lakers had more money and offered him more. Magic didn't let him go like they didn't care. Shaq was never played for the fans and was in it for the money 100% of the time. Why do you think Orlando never welcomed him back ever since he left. Till this day, Shaq has always been boo'ed whenever he comes to town. When Phx came to town just two weeks, he purposely didn't play. I wonder why?!?
