Since Nov 1989 Ive seen EVERY game. I remember the pride I felt the 1st game we ever played in a regular season with the Nets. Theus, Skiles, Corzine, Catledge, Reynolds, Green...wow was it really 20 years ago? I remember the " Beat LA "chant that 1st year when we played the Lakers and the O-rena literally shook! I digress...I also remember the hurt of loseing to the Rockets in 4 quick Finals games in '95...the indgnilty of loseing Shaq to the Lalers in 96...the painful regression of Penny....the McGrady years and the loss to the Pistons after being up 3-1...watching Grant Hill ride the pine for most of 7 years, while adding to his art collection, only to bolt for a "better team". Im' rambling. I only ask you Dwight and Hedo and Lewis...PLEASE dont break our hearts again! Show some heart...dig deep & Win this thing... NOW !

The main reason of Magic`s bad play in playoffs is Rafer Alston ! He is not doing his main job well enough, he should play for his team not for himself ! The more he holds the ball in his hands without passing the more Magic struggles offensively ! Lewis and Hedo can`t be effective in this situation and everything would be on Howard`s shoulders ! You can`t play like this in playoffs. Magic is definately missing Jameer. Coach Stan should warn Alston to pass more and leave the ball from his hands quickly, create more free shooting positions for the shooters otherwise no hope..........

Double team Andre Miller!!! He is the engine that gets the team going. In the fading minutes of game three we doubled him at the top of the key and their offense collapsed. Don't start to double after he is already driving. By then it's too late. Double immediately and make him pass. By the way, whoever is guarding Marshall (Rashard), the guy cannot drive. All he can do is hit the three point shoot. So stay on him!

That`s the game Magic should play ! Analyze the team and stick to the game plan. They should use inside outside balance equally and create open looks for shooters ah before i forget no matter what happens trust your leaders ! At the end they say the last word ;))
