Magic tick me off. This team better start smiling. I'm tired of this "Oh I feel sorry for myself" attitude. It sucks! Where's the spirit Hedo? Rashard?

Howard, youre the man. Sorry you have to play with a bunch of stiffs. Turk needs to pack his bags and go somewhere. SVG should have benched him, he cant play with an injury.

This sucks. As much as I hate to say it. We're not ready.

One thing I did like was that Dwight got the ball in the 4th quarter. If he's gonna be the man, he's gotta be able to step up in the crunch and carry the team/take over a game. He really stepped up tonight. Especially with those two big free throws to win the game.

I wish Turk would get it together. The ankle is not the reason for him clanking layups. He's doesn't seem to be mentally in the game.*sigh*

This really sucks.

This game was rough to watch. I don't even recognize the Magic lately. Who are these imposters?

Hopefully they get it together and turn it around in game 4.

This was an embarrassment to all the Magic fans. Utterly disgusting game. I'm sick of the same old crap in post game conferences. Quit making excuses.

Sorry, I meant to say, to "tie the game"

TURKOGLU MUST GO!!!!!!!!

Pietrus in: Magic 14-2 run
Turkoglu in: Magic lose!!!

We as Magic fans cannot tolerate losing to a barely .500 team in the 1st round!! At least make Turkoglu come off the bench. He is a cancer with his sloppy play and lack of desire to play. Dwight stepped it up and Rashard hit some timely shots, but Turkoglu is single-handedly losing this series for the Magic and SBG knows it! Why did Orlando sign Pietrus? He was spectating the whole game! Turkoglu must be allowed to opt out of his contract. Let him secure his family elsewhere. He is keeping Dwight and the Magic from making a name for themselves. No wonder the national media has no respect for the Magic, they keep playing this Turkish clown that has no idea what he's doing on the court! It's not worth keeping him on the floor for the .001 chance that he might hit a game-winner. Why pray for a game-winner if they could have had the lead if Pietrus would have stayed in the game. drastic times call for drastic measures and benching Turk is the only logical choice. Magic will lose the series if they don't destroy Philly in the next game. Nice dunk on Ratliff though.

F'ing embarrassing. Dwight ought to be pissed with this team. Turk sucked bloody a$$hole tonight. He needs to be benched. He wasn't in the game when the Magic came back at the end of the 3rd, yet he plays the entire 4th and Pietrus sits.

What a joke. I hope the Sixers smoke them in the next 2.

Win game 4 and we are back in the drivers seat. If turk does not step it up in the first quarter of game 4, he needs to be sent to the bench. Pietrus and Battie both played good in the limited minutes they received. and SVG, please stopping putting Gortat in the game. He is Garbage

DH is stepping up. I mean did you see him hit the Free throws in the end and tie things up? Well, our role players are not playing their roles.

This is going to come down to whether Turk and Lewis can make their shots. Its pretty obvious.

Our season is on the line.

What I dont get..when the Magic win..Otis Smith is a genious and its his ability that made this team possible..but when they lose and those same players under achieve...we blame the players and not the man who put gave $115 Million to a 6'10 streaky 3 point shooter??

MP really stepped up his game tonight, NOT ! MFM you R wrong.

I don't know what's wrong with Rashard and Turk, it also feels like we're being out-coached. They've stopped our game, but we cannot control what we knew their game was going to be...that's a coaching issue.

Will be up early Monday morning to watch game 4, go Magic.

Yeah it really is embarrassing. I've been talking up the Magic all year and then they come into the playoffs and lay down like this.

Hedo and Rashard are really letting us down. Watching Hedo is killing me.

Fairweather fan. This series is still to be had, dont bring that bull**** in here. Turk is suckin, no doubt but Philly has won 2 games on lucky prayers. Howards performance was promising, but he needs some help.
No Nelson, no healthy turk, it doesnt look good but keep the philly cheering out of here.

But Hedo is not only killing us offensively, A.I. from philly is eating his back out. Did anyone notice when Pietrus was in the game, they did not isolate Iguodala. but as soon as they put Turk on him, bam, bucket after bucket. On a sidenote, Philly cannot shoot this good again in this series, they were hitting everything

This team has no heart. It was clear at the end of the regular season that they had shut down. After they beat Cleveland they thought they were set. Dwight showed up tonight, but not the last game.

There's not a more lethargic playoff team than the Magic, right now. Maybe the Pistons, but still, the Magic are galaxies away from being serious contenders.

Has anyone seen how well Trevor Ariza is playing for LA ?? Great trade Otis ! Ariza is exactly what Orlando needs, good thing we have Cook coming off the bench and nailing 3's, and a solid backup PG in Evans...oh, wait, we don't...

OTIS !!! WHY ??
