This guy Mourning, is a first-class joke, a hack, a bandwagon, whatever...and that organization had the gall to have a 45 minute halftime even though the league only granted a 24 min which was already long to begin with. F da heat, Magic win.

Just enough to get the win. If they have turnovers like that against the Cavs, it ain't gonna be pretty....

CONGRATULATIONS DWIGHT HOWARD: for passing Wilt Chamberlain and becoming the youngest guy to get 5k rebounds!

This game was too close for comfort in the last couple of minutes. It seems like we wait until the last part of the game to really turn it on lately.

I'm grateful that we have Courtney Lee. He's the only one that goes 100% the whole game.

How does Rafer Alston with 7 rebounds out rebound Hedo and Lewis? Our Power Forward had 3 rebounds in the first half but only managed 1 in the second for a whopping total of 4.

Good game from Alston with 13 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists.

Another great game from Dwight with 22 points, 18 rebounds.

I don't like how we let lesser teams stick around. This is a bad habit to be in but at least we won.

Mark,

I think you're overreacting. The fact that the Magic

1. Can even come back on the road and keep the lead.

2. Survive another fantastic game by Wade.

3. Still win an away game with almost 45 min to 1 hr halftime tells you this team is for real.

They're just doing enough to get ready for the playoffs. Again relax and enjoy the win.

Oh and I almost forgot Courtney Lee is the real deal. STEAL OF THE DRAFT!!!!!

Good game. Those calls on Lee were ridiculous!!! I know Wade is a great player, but comeon. Wade was jumping into him while Lee would stand motionless with hands raised.

I have never been a fan of Zo, it probably goes back to when he and Shaq had their rivalry in the early-mid nineties. However I do think he was a warrior on the court and a stand up man off of it.

He deserved tonight. In 15 years we will have a night like this for Dwight!

I don't think that anyone questions that the Magic are the real deal. They are #3 in this week's ESPN Power rankings right behind the Lebrons and Lakers.

Maybe I shouldn't compare them to the Gold standard of the Jordan Bulls teams. They weren't in the habit of letting weaker teams always hang around halfway through the 4th quarter.

This is a young team that will continue to improve. I'm pretty excited for this years playoffs. I'm anxious to see how we are going to do. I expect big things.

The Magic did what they had to do to get the job done tonight folks.

It was kind of hard to maitain focus after that 3 hour long halftime ceremony.

Don't get me wrong, Alonzo was a very good player and many props go to him after he went through his illness and came back to win a championship, but 43 minutes is way too long for something like this.

As for the game, it says a lot about a team when they can play one of their worst games of the year..on the road no less...and still manage to find a way to emerge victorious.

Magic fans, your witnessing something special. Even with 21 turnovers, they still pull out a win. Also, we don't win this game without Rashard. Everytime the Heat made a run, Rashard hit a big three.

CLee was robbed on several calls. I guess DWade gets the call, but on two of the fouls, CLee never left his feet and DWade got the call.

Bring on whoever! Go Magic!

The Magic are 16-4 since they acquired Alston and have 13 wins in their last 15 games.

^^ That's the kind of consistency the Magic lacked since that 4-0 west coast trip and before they got Alston. Let's keep it up Magic!

Gelling like a Felon. Great defense on DWade CLee. Maybe Rashard has finally gotten out of his slump. And what can we say about Dwight? The guy's put us back on the NBA relevancy map. And he's only going to get better. T

A win is a win.

Could you imagine what the score would be without the turnovers.

The Magic showed lots of poise as they played the last 2 minutes.

Could win of to Toronto,
