Posted by Jim Yesterday-'Make that 14-6. The Magic will lose tomorrow night to Washington, who will be playing inspired basketball trying to impress their new coach, as well as lose to Boston on the road next week. They will win the three games at home against three more patsies: Indiana, Minnesota, and that high school team in Oklahoma City. You heard it here first folks.'

Well Jim? anything to say about your latest prediction blunder?

This does not count as a blown prediction for me folks. And I have a legitimate excuse this time. I had no idea that Gilbert Arenas was sitting this one out tonight. Therefore that wipes the slate clean.

Good Game Tonight Orlando. Sry you couldnt be home with your family but im Thankful I got to watch you on TV today! Great Job by all the guys 4 starters getting into double figures and Johnson with 12 assists! Wow seems like they had everything clicking. some bad shots outside but hey thats our strong point outside! Dwight seems to be improving with his charity stripe shots which is a big plus went 10-14 tonight not bad for a 58% free throw shooter. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Today!

Anthony Johnson did a great job tonight at the point. 12 assists and 0 turnovers. Now that's how to get it done.

The Magic did a good job of putting these guys away and keeping a boot on their neck when they got up big. A good solid 48 minutes tonight.

Dwight made these guys look like 4 year old kids out there. What a dominating performance. Turk and Lewis came up big too. Pietrus had a good game and had a couple of jaw dropping dunks.

J.J. had 5 of their 11 total turnovers. He was also 1 for 6 shooting 3's. This is not gonna get it done.

I see that Iverson is up to his old tricks again in Detroit. He skipped a practice and got fined and will probably get benched. Meanwhile Chauncey is helping to turn things around in Denver. The Magic have to be happy about this trade.

Wrong. Agent Zero hasn't been predicted to return until January, LATE DECEMBER at earliest (source: Washington Post). Nooone with any level of NBA knowledge anticipated Gil to play tonight, and i would like to say that even you Jim, possess SOME small level of NBA know-how.

Be a big man now, and say 'Well folkes, i was wrong. Well done to the Magic who simply played better than i thought they would'

Go on Jim...Like a big boy

I am calling for a Magic win this Saturday night against Indiana folks. You heard it here first. Cut and paste accordingly at your own convenience.

I don't mind hearing your addmittance of incorrectness yesterday, today or tomorrow (as there is a more than likely chance you will trip on your words and be wrong again soon)

It is quite simple my friend- You said the Wiz would win, they did not. perhaps when you make your predictions, you should state 'if Gil plays, WAS will win, if not...etc.

You were wrong today buddy- on 2 counts.
Magic won, and it's spelt G'day.....mate.

Once again the folks over at TNT have snubbed the Magic. It was all about how terrible Washington is, and how they shouldn't have fired their coach. They just can't bring themselves to say anything good about the Magic. They probably have it circled on their calendars the next time the Celtics or LeBron plays on TNA...oops...TNT.

You had no idea Arenas was sitting this one out. Seriously give it a rest.

By the way, do you have any idea if JJ will be in the starting lineup for the next magic game?

I am calling for a Magic win against Indiana as well. However I will hold back on any kind of prediction for the score until after the game.
