Orlando Magic prevail against Warriors in OT, go 4-1 on trip

Full story: Orlando Sentinel

The Amazin' Magic road show, incredibly, rolls on. Living out of a suitcase continues to agree with them.

yeah...definetely a great game, should be 5-0 on this road trip if it wasn't for the bogus no call. But Jameer played great really getting everyone involved and taking his shots when they came to him, not really forcing anything. Dwight Howard is a beast, i'll take his not so good game with 18pts, 23rebs, and 7 blocks anytime. If shaq gets voted into the starting all star center again this year, then the voting is a complete joke
Shaq will be voted in as a starter. And yes the voting is a complete joke. Always has been. Always will be.

Yes, there is something to complain about, Magic fans. SVG did not get Coach of the Month honors. They picked Doc Rivers of the Celtics. That's bone-headed. SVG gets way more credit for shaping the Magic into this road-winning juggernaut. All Doc has to do is show up and let Garnett coach the team on the floor.
Best game of the season last night, BTW. This team is going places! I guess with an 11-2 road record, that's self-evident.
They picked Doc Rivers ? First of all the Celtics have only played like what..4 games so far this year ? And most of them have been at home while the Magic have been on the road against tougher opponents. Plus Doc has the "Big 3" with KG. Pierce, and Allen. And yes, Garnett is the coach while Doc just shows up in a suit and draws up horrible plays. What a shame for SVG that he didn't win this thing hands down.
Once again it is another slight against the Magic who can't seem to get the respect that they deserve.

Mo Evans, Keith Bogans and Adonal Foyle have been very instrumental in the Magic's success on this road trip.

Great pick up in Mo Evans, hopefully Brian Cook will prove to be one too. I like that SVG is giving everyone a chance to prove him wrong. He gave JJ Reddick some playing time on this road trip and he performed very well. If this continues, I can see SVG being NBA coach of the year.

On another note, I love the shoot em' up offense we have but I think relying on our outside shooting in the dying minutes of very close games have been the main reason for our few loses. In the last 5 mins of tough games, we need to go to Howard more or give the illusion that we're going to Howard. In any case, we need to take high percentage shots during those times.

Good Work for the team yet again. A couple days of rest that they so heartily deserve coming up. I am thrilled with this season and can't wait to see them bury the Bulls when they come here to Chicago. Will be a great way to end this year for this super team on 12/31. I am usually the lone Magic Fan wearing my blue and black in a sea of red but I love this team, always have, and am just jacked to see them this year!

Van Gundy is the best coach!!! If he doesn't win Coach of the year..no one should win it. The Heat's loss is the Magic's gain.

Hey Magic Fan from Arlington Heights, IL--you may well be the only other lone Magic Fan here in Illinois. We should hit a game together at the UC when they come to town. Ha :)

Wish I could go to Friday's game. If I lived in Florida I would have season tickets every year. It gets costly driving there to see games. I usually do it once or twice a season, then catch them here a few times. There are Magic haters all over Chicago but I don't care.

Last nights win was probably the biggest of the year so far. The resilience of this team is incredible. They could of folded a couple of times, but held on in a hostile environment on the last night of long Western road trip.

I have to give some credit to the fans in Golden State, they could make some noise... Let's do the same for the Magic this Friday against the Pacers!

Stan Van Gundy is the man. I'm glad Billy boy went back to U of F, as I don't quite think we would be seeing the same Magic team.

I agree it's a joke that Doc got coach of the month. IMO, the Celtics are not as good as everyone is making them up to be. They don't have enough depth, but I could be wrong. Wait till their schedule gets a little tougher and we'll see what they are made of!

Also, I've keep thinking about this too, when the Magic (and Vanderweide)picked DHoward over Okafor I was a little bummed. I thought Okafar was a solid pick and DHoward had "Potential". Vanderweide might of been a hockey guy, but he made one of the BEST decisions in the history of the Magic to take Dwight over Emeka.

Also, where are all the Jameer haters today on the boards. He was only a couple of boards away from a triple double, and yes he's only 5'10". Great Game Jameer!

GO Magic!

One more thing red...Baron avg is 23 and he had 19; Jack avg is 21 and he had 25. Their combined avg is 44, and combined for the game...they had 44! Either way you slice it...it's the same results...MAGIC WIN!!!

Hey Red, the Magic are 16 and four, and have played 15 other games other than the one with the Warriors. They also have the best ROAD record in the NBA.

This is a case of you ignoring the obvious. In the NBA you are what your record is. In case you missed it, the Magic with Grant Hill, with Brian Hill, will Darko Whatshisname were a playoff team last year. They were not road kill.

Fast Forward to 07'...

Stan Van Gundy - Coach of the Year - So far.
Reshard "Sweet Lew" Lewis - Worth the $
Dwight Howard - Need I say more?
Adonal Foyal - Your loss.
Jammeer Nelson - Coming into his own.
Hedo Turkoglu - Merhaba in Turkish means HELLO!
Keith Bogans - Where have you been hiding this game!
Keyon Dooling - One of the league's best backups, AND kept secrets.
Brian Cook & Mo Evans - WE STOLE THEM in the best trade of the year!
JJ Reddick - His doubers are starting to shut up.
Carlos Arroyo - Under VanGundy he is becoming less erratic, and a steady presence off the bench.

The Magic are deeper, more mature, have a proven scorer in Lewis, are better defensively, and as shown in this recent road trip WILL NOT QUIT COMING AT YOU!

So don't hate, appriciate.

Be Bold - Be Blue!

Go Magic!

Red,

We didn't even have Carlos and we have played the most road games in the league so far.

When we do play you guys again it will be in Otown and you will get run out of the building!

Stop reading so many of Bianchi's articles and bring more game before you jam up our boards with your nonsense.

At the end of the day, if you don't bring your A game, you lose - instead of using Davis and Jackson's poor performances as an excuse, maybe wonder to yourself, why did they play badly? Ever thought that the reason they didn't hit their shots was because the Magic played good defense on them. No matter how you look at it, it's a W for Orlando, and an L for GSW.
