Billups is a grea player, as any Magic Fan will confirm. He has worked over the Magic way to many times....

But, He is getting older and these long NBA seasons are getting him. Detroit went 6 games with Philly, then had a two day turn around before playing the Magic. He went down hard in Game two and was very slow to get up. He is a player that gives up his body every night... If he plays on Saturday, I say we put Bogans on him and play physical against him...

He'll have the two days to recover which works in Detroit's favor.

Will he be 100% is the question and how affective, but I agree play him physical as possible

I cant see him sitting out the game Saturday and Detroit will come out to play but will Orlando? LETS GET READY AND TAKE ANOTHER ONE!!

I know you always want to beat a team when they are at their best, but Detroit has been such a thorn in our side, it won't hurt my feelings at all if Billups misses game 4. But if he doesn't play, you can bet that will just focus Detroit even more, and the Magic better be ready for a very intense and physical game.

florida people...u must be delusional if you think you can beat detroit because billups isn't playing or not 100%. billups absence is not the same as lebron james or kobe bryants absence or for this matter, dwight howard's absence. joe dumars prepared this team for the worst case scenario of 1 or 2 or even 3 starting line up gets injured. this is the time that orlando magic fans should get scared because they haven't seen the secret weapon of detroit...don't believe me? you'll find out on saturday! pistons in 5.....worst case, pistons in 6.
