Turkoglu hit the $10 million shot at the end of game 4!! No matter how his post-season went, that shot will prove to give him a hefty contract somewhere!

What Brian really meant to say was that the magic will either win the series the "hard" way (actually winning wo more games) or they will cozy up to the commish and hopes of getting some help from the league and their refs. Mr. Stern is coming to see the new arena and will be pitch the Magic as an up and coming powerhouse.

Wow the comish is going to be here, how about that? I hope all the fans that are going to the game will show some respect. Oh and maybe slip in a word for me about how horrible the officials have been thus far this year.(Won't be able to watch or make it to the game tonight, I have school).

Anyway, we had better win tonight or you can toss this season down the drink. A win tonight will hopefully give our guys the confidence to move forward in the playoffs and through this series.

Stay tuned and GO MAGIC!!

That's a good point. Maybe the officials will let them play tonight since the Comish is going to be there. LET THEM PLAY, LET THEM PLAY!!

i'm not sure what defense brian saw in game 4, but i saw us back pedalling instead of stopping the ball. that led to our 11 point lead vanishing, and having to fight the last two minutes instead of resting our starters.

if alston, lee, and turk would contain the dribble drive instead of running away from the ballhandler this would be a different series. i found myself wishing turk would break his ankle or opt out of his contract mid quarter with his defense and the way he kills the clock on offense.

can't wait to get jameer back next year and make a real run at this...

To win the game Magic should let Howard roll early. He should take +20 shots, let the Sixers react to that matchup.
Iguodala may have a big game, but what about Miller? He is definitely the slowest PG in NBA yet he torches us. Either Alston or Lee is much quicker than him, so pressure him on defense that will disrupt their offense. Also zone defense may be used to stop AI. Again Miller is too slow for our backcourt, so on offense that matchup should be exploited. We don't need to win all 5 matchups to win the game, we just need to play to our strength rather than their game. I must say SVG did a lousy job to ensure that sofar..

The Magic just need to give strong defensive effort and everything will fall into place. Stop saying it all starts with D and actually start the game with it and play it 'til you win. Too many times the 6ers get 2nd or 3rd shots. Play defense right from the start and make sure you get the rebounds, even if this means more minutes for Gortat/Battie. It isn't like we would miss a few minutes from Hedo. He can use the rest anyway.

You all see that quote Dwight had in this article?

It took JJ 2 years to teach Dwight how to say that so pay attention.

I gave it up I'll go 6'ers in 7 now.
