Nice game but Rashard disappeared again. What is the deal with him lately?

Only 13pts, 3 boards and 1 assist out of Rashard in 33 minutes. I wish he would step out of his slump soon. We are going to need him in the playoffs.

I'm starting to buy into the theory that his legs are tired and he needs rest.

This team has great character. The way it can come off a heart-breaking loss the night before and absolutely dominate the next game tells you a lot about this team.

part of it is that lewis is tired, the other part is that he likes to play mind games with himself. he'll get his rest near the end of the season when coaches like to rest their starters in preparation for the playoffs.

They mentioned briefly during the broadcast that Lewis was treated for a little case of tendinitis. Maybe he did something and instead of taking a couple games off, is just trying to play through it?

Now this is how to get it done folks. Let Howard go to work. The defense was solid. A nice bounce back win.

Lewis keeps trying to hit those 3's from the corners and each one looks worse than the other.

His shot looks even flatter than usual. I think he needs a couple of games off in my opinion.

Interesting watching what Coach is doing with the SG spot. He gave them all about the same amount of minutes to see what each delivers.

Lee - 23 minutes, 13 points, 2 boards
Pietrus - 21 minutes, 5 points, 1 boards
Reddick - 20 minutes, 9 points, 1 boards

Keep in mind that most of Lee's minutes are against the opposing team starters.

Rashard needs a rest, just not on Sat against the Knicks when my wife, son, and myself will attend our first ever Magic game!!! We're only 3 hours away now, and have decided to support MY team as much as possible. We're staying at the Mona Lisa, and any advice on traffic and parking will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, and GO MAGIC!!!

OK that's what I am talking about solid win after a heart wrenching lost.
Our Magic have heart.
Once again please don't worry about Rashard he will come around.
Miami did its best to helps taking Boston to a overtime but came short at the end.
Lets get a 16 game winning streak going.

The Magic need to go 10-4 to reach 60. They can do that but I think we will see them taking some nights off down the stretch. We will get the usual screaming about how the Magic wont win in the playoffs because of that but it is typical of NBA teams that have their playoff position sewn up. Boston is facing the same problem. Do you push yourselves to get the home court or do you rest your players. Knowing SVG he is going to push them but I think they will take some games off to rest. I would prefer a rested healthy team for the first round, especially if we get Detroit.

I could point out that Hedo only had 14 points in 36 minutes. But the thing that's different is that Hedo had 10 rebounds and 7 assists also. I wish Rashard would find other ways to help also when his shots aren't falling.

When was there 250 posts? I didnt watch this game but I saw they were dominating after 1. They lost yesterdays game but they played hard. I have to repeat whats been said about Rashard. Not sure why hes been off with his shot lately. A few of those go down and Magic win the Cleveland game. Sad to think about, they needed that game to have a chance at # 1. Number will guarantee home court through the first 2 rounds and I like our chances to up end Cleveland if its them we face in the conference finals.

Detroit losing to Houston in OT 88-85 with about 2 minutes to go. No Iverson, Wallace, and Hamilton once again folks.

Jim, I don't know how accurate your theory is that Detroit is playing to be able to face the Magic in the first round. But if it were true I would hope that they would announce it to the whole league also. Then coach SVG could put that on the bulletin board and maybe then the Magic will say ENOUGH is ENOUGH!

We have to beat those guys so let's do it this year. I like our chances. Especially with Alston at the PG spot.

Jim you know they don't care they are resting and waiting for the playoffs.
Same can be said for Boston today they sat out Ray Allen.
This teams with ageing stars need to rest a lot before the playoffs

Yeah, it's kind of sick how after a loss, or some other negative/adversity, there are tons more posts than after a win...
