Way to pull out a tough overtime victory over one of the hotter teams in the league right now at the end of a long road trip!

The magic continue to impress!

This team continues to impress! Dwight is hands down the MVP ... as of right now. The players around him are just playing great ball. Having a solid big man again really makes a difference. Stan Van Gundy was an outstanding pick for coach. So happy it wasn't Billy D. Brian Hill was horrible! GO MAGIC!!!

First of all I want to congratulate the ref who called that tech on Howard for smacking the padding under the basket. Please! He was just upset for not making the dunk. Next time don't interfere with such an exciting game.
Anyway what a victory for the Magic! This team just continues to impress. 4 and 1 on this road trip. Everyone is contributing. The bench is much improved. I think the Ariza trade is looking pretty good about now. Evans had a good game off the bench with 11 points. Another good one for Dooling who scored 10. But what about Jameer Nelson with 22 points, 8 rebs, and 11 asts ? And only one turnover. Nice job. Bogans with 22 and Lewis with 20 rounded out 7 Magic players in double figures scoring. Dwight had a good game with 18 points and 23 rebs despite being assaulted all during the game. Turk had 17 points, 8 rebs, and 6 asts.
Nice balanced scoring attack tonight. This team will continue to get better as the season goes on. You can see the confidence grow with each passing game.
What a blessing it was that we got SVG instead of Billy Donovan.This guy has them shooting for the stars. Great time to be a fan of the Magic!

Dwight Howard was dealing with fatige so this four game wait will be good for him and the team because they looked tired all game and still pulled off a win.

Great game! Way to dig it out in overtime. Road weary and playing a back-to-back against a very hot Golden State team...was by far the most impressive win I've seen this season.

what was up with that TECHNICAL FOUL called on Dwight? It seems all season long we have had to deal with lopsided, questionable calls (the entire 3d period vs. Boston, the no-call on Rashard's last 3 point attempt vs. Phoenix). Its nice to know our guys can beat the refs as well!

The refs are hacks. Where are all the Jameer haters. Yea he's undersized but he's a gamer. Told ya'll. 22pts., 8 reb, 11 asst., 1 to. Be glad the Magic have some depth. I like Arroyo at times but enjoy him while you can because next year he'll be playing in Miami. They got a squad but they gotta do a better job at stickin' the foot on the opponent when the opportunity is there. Surrendering 11 pt. leads in less than 2min. doesn't get you far in the playoffs. They've done that multiple times this season. Consider that they were up almost 20 on Boston at one time and won in a close game. Gotta stop dumb turnovers in the 4th quarter. Can't complain though 'cause somehow they get wins. They're young and they'll get better. For now just sittin' back and smilin'.

The one thing that I like about Dwight this year is that he is more aggresive. Credit Patrick Ewing for that. Now if we could hire John Starks to work with the guards....

Even ESPN is taking notice.
