Magic are gonna win this one by 15 or more. The Sixers are not gonna shoot 7-12 from the three point line again.

The Celtics got it done after losing game 1.

The Spurs got it done after losing game 1.

The Blazers got it done after getting destroyed in game 1.

All three of these top teams went out and took care of business in virtual must win games.

Folks the Magic WILL NOT get it done in game 2. They simply do not have any sense of urgency.

Philadelphia will be laid back and playing with house money.

Turkoglu and Lewis will both struggle again. Lee and Alston will get plenty of shots. The only thing is they will not make many of them.

Dwight will score a bunch of points once again. Philadelphia will not double team him too often and stay home on the perimeter players, especially Turkoglu and Lewis.

Easy call to make here folks. All data has been carefully reviewed. Analysis is complete. After tomorrow night the Magic WILL be down 2 games to none in this series.

Also the Magic bench will once again be outplayed in game 2. Another contributing factor to the game 2 loss.

The problem with the Magic is they live or die with 3 point shots. All the 76ers have to do is shut down those 3 point opportunities. Dwight Howard will get 30 plus points tonight. However, it will not be enough without those 3 point shots hitting their mark.

The "wisdom" of the MP trade has yet to manifest itself. Typically, I would rip MP, chucker though he is, but not today, not tonight. I predict MP will break out, have a "one of those nights" night, and get injured in the second quarter, out for the balance of the playoffs...sorry MP, just kidding, go Magic. By the way, the Sixers have the ABSOLUTE UGLIEST DANCERS in the NBA. Magic Dancers rock, maybe we should sub one for MP?

I doubt it, but with this team you just never feel confident. I thought they would destroy Philly in game 1.

Data reviewed? Analysis complete? PLEASE. Listen here Nostradamus, since you can see so clearly into the future why don't you make yourself useful and spit out the lottery numbers while you're at it. You can't possibly know what the "sense of urgency" is like in that locker room, noone here does. You will wait and see like the rest of us.

You are an absolute moron. Seriously, jump off a bridge. Did you watch game one? Like, how the Magic built an 18 point lead WITHOUT hitting their 3's? It's people like you that are so misinformed and go off of what the national media says. Game 1 was a fluke. I can see the Magic winning this in 6, EASY.

I'm totally with you Ant. The media has been saying all year that we live and die by the three. We do shoot the most in the league but the perception that it's all we have is just wrong. I am cautiously optimistic (just because the game one loss surprised me so much) that we will come back hard and take this series.

Yes, Mike you are right. If the Magic don't win tonight it's over. And if this scenario does play out Otis had better make some series changes this offseason too, but that goes even if we do continue to win :D...

Anyway, we had better get more than a combine 21 points from our 2nd and 3rd option. Hopefully these two will combine for 35+ points. We NEED that from these two. If Lee and Rafer has the same game they had in the Game 1, we should be okay. We just really need Hedo/Rashard to show up. Maybe someone on our team will go off for 40+ and maybe we can play same d @ mn defense tonight.
