WOW, just WOW!!!!!!!!! Great intensity throughout the game and a great win! If the Magic play with that same intensity in the playoffs, I think they can beat anyone.

This is the playoff type effort we needed. Every player played with intensity and focus. Very impressive. Unfortunatly Boston won too.

The excuse from Cleveland fans will be that the Cavaliers played a back-to-back. It is true that the Cavs looked flat. But I don't think they would have beat the Magic tonight even if they had a day off. What an ***-whipping. This is the best game the Magic have played all year, and it should definitely boost their confidence.

I think the loss of Ben Wallace makes the Magic a bad match-up for Cleveland. Neither Varejao nor Ilgauskas can guard Dwight.

Rashard was fantastic tonight. Unconscious. Both Battie and Gortat were great. Look at all the blocks! Anthony Johnson was also solid. The reserves came to play tonight, and helped us pull away.

Does anyone know who would win the tie-breaker if Boston and Orlando wind up with the same record at the end of the season?

Beatdown! thats what Im talkin about. Great play on both ends of the floor. This was championship basketball tonight. Labia James had no answer, and we could put these guys to bed quickly in the playoffs. Boston wants none of us either. I think everyone is hoping we get Detroit in the 1st round, not that it will be a problem there either.

That was a great win for the Magic. especially since it was on National Television.

Honestly I don't care we don't get
respect from the national market, us fans that watch every game KNOW we can beat any team on any given night.

The Cavs just don't match up with us well. I'm sure the Cavs don't want any part of us in the playoffs.

Hey, what about them pulling the plug on AI's season. Practice! We're talking about Practice.

Rashard was money tonight!

Go Magic!

I can't wait to hear the CLE fans excuses for this loss. Oh, we played last night, wah wah wah...

Stupid CLE fans. How many times have we told them, that the Magic have CLE Lebrons's number? Let's see, we beat them here at home earlier, they just barely beat us at their home, and now we blow them out? Come on, what more do you need.

Detroit is going to have a hard time putting points on the board without A.I. Obviously he is a cancer but he can still light it up. I don't beleive that they will make the playoffs. I think they drop to #9 by the end of next week.

Exactly. They dont match up with us, and Lebron is scared to come in the paint like a stray cat coming to the milk bowl. He knows Howard will swat his shot and noone else in the league can do that.

We need Kenny to show up and take his medicine. He has been here talking shite for 2 weeks since the last game. Now he disappeared.

The loss to Toronto shows how erratic and inconsistent the Magic can be.

Its easy to win at home when the threes are falling. But its a different story in a seven game playoff series.

How tough are the Magic when the threes aren't falling? That is what matters in the playoffs.

I will be rooting for the Cavaliers when they host Boston on Easter Sunday. Could be a big game for the Magic. Even given our poor history against Detroit, I would rather get the 2 seed and have home-court advantage if we wind up facing Boston in Round 2. There's something to be said for facing your nemesis and defeating it.

If we can't beat a weakened Detroit team, then Otis will have to look at the team and make necessary adjustments (a traditional PF). If we do beat Detroit, our confidence will be sky-high, and we will have an excellent chance to make it to the Finals.

I was in shock and awe, amazing effort by the Magic. And what's up with Gortat hitting the 3???!!! I was freaking with this game. And plus I am now considering myself a psychic after I called the large win tonight.......If you ever want to know if we will win or not just ask me. lol. My past last 5 game posts prove it! But regardless Magic have an amazing record against the top teams in the NBA and no doubt, I think we are going ALL THE WAY!!!! Bring on the Pistons!! Bet Jim just wants to stay away from this talk because he can't say crap now!!
