Joey Crawford is so awful at his job it's not even funny. If it were you or I at our jobs we would have been fired by now, but since Joey Crawford thinks he is the Lebron of the refs its ok. He is old and just makes up calls. RONDO clear tripped himself and Crawford finds it necessary to call a foul.

DO EVERYONE A FAVOR AND RETIRE ALREADY!!!!!!!!!

The referees were terrible for both sides. Just awful.

We had open looks. We just didn't make them. Their defense wasn't spectacular, it was good at best. Our lack of killer instinct and not driving to the basket when we had most of their bigs in foul trouble didn't help either. Instead we settled for the 3 pt shot, which weren't falling last night.

We're controlling this series. They're the ones that have had to react to our domination of games and they're the champs. They're the ones elated to steal a one point "3rd option" win on the road because they know how tough we are to beat. This series is 2-2 but it's time for the Magic to be the better team again and take game 5 on their floor and continue to control this series. I don't believe the C's have the ability to take 2 in a row from us. Win Tuesday like we know we can, blow them out again by passing the ball, penetrating on every play, and keeping their defense on their heels. Then learn from last night's mistake of letting them hang around and close this series Thursday at home. Go Magic...we're the better team, just need to play like it.

one more thing...if Hedo takes the ball up the floor and holds it for more than 2 seconds above the 3 point line without driving or passing, bench him. His slow approach in the half court is killing us. We put up a bad shot every time.

That is why this team will never even win a conference title - the are the Phoenix Suns of the East, a nice gimmick for the regular season & the early rounds of the playoffs...

Soft team, average defense, no inside game (and don't call Dwight's 1 move a low-post game) and a bunch of jump shooters, without a real go-to player...

Your highest paid player is an oversized spot up shooter who is afraid of contact...
Your best player has to develop more parts of his game to really do something in crunch time...
Your coach, well, that act is already getting old...

Um...you ought to think about what you post, before you just start typing.

If our D is average and our D is soft, what does that make Boston's D and their team? Since they beat us by a whole point.

These are two very good defensive teams. If Orlando ups their shot percentage just a little bit, we'll be in the next round.

All the rest of your post is biased non-sense. Dwight is a very good inside player, on both ends of the court. Perkins is doing a better job than I thought he could at harassing Dwight and staying relatively out of foul trouble.

Rashard takes advantage of whoever Boston tries to cover him with.
