Magic in 6.

I want to pick the sixers, but they just dissapointed me tonight. and they also lost to the Celtics without Ray or KG.

Iggy, Miller, Thad. 3 solid players that could steal two games. Reggie Evans off the bench with energy in Philly could get the crowd going crazy, but in the end the Magic are too much for Philly unless Philly does what they were predicted to do and put together stretches of full games of solid play.

Philly in 7.

The magic are not as good defensively as they think they are and ended the season in a tail spin. This team relies on too many 3's and their low post threat is a poor foul shooter with limited offensive moves.

This will be Iggy's coming out party. He is a much improved slasher and shooter and should have some big numbers.

Magic in six...Howard should dominate the boards against a team that lacks sufficient size and rebounding prowess.

Ironically, Elton Brand would've come in real handy against Orlando especially.

out of all the series, this is the most un-even. Dwight is just going tear-up Dalembert. Hes gunna avg like 30 and 15. This series has the highest potential to be a sweep. But i will give philly a game. So magic in 4 or 5, but i'll say 5.

pd7631
04-16-2009, 08:18 PM
Not saying this means a whole lot, but this is what Dwight Howard did vs. the Sixers this year:

Game 1- 14pts 8reb 3blk
Game 2- 21pts 14reb 2blk
Game 3- 12pts 8reb 3blk

Samuel Dalembert vs. Orlando this season:

Game 1- 10pts 14reb 3blk
Game 2- 4pts 7reb 1blk
Game 3- 8pts 6reb 0blk (16 minutes)

While Sammy D's numbers are far from great, they are decent and in 2 out of the 3 games these teams played this year Dwight Howard has been more like Clark Kent.

Now, this could all mean nothing, because Dwight Howard could really step his game up in the Playoffs and just dominate the Sixers, but in the season series the Sixers have done a good job keeping him in check, and for some reason Samuel Dalembert always does a good job on Dwight Howard(and Yao)........yet he sucks against almost everyone else.

Note: the average margin of victory for the Magic against the Sixers this year is 6 points.

Again, I don't think the Sixers will win this series, but it could be closer than a lot of people think.

Shut up, you guys aren't **** without KG anyways, Magic can take you in 6. And i hope the Bulls shut you down.

BTW remember we are doing this all without Nelson. I know that philly lost Brand, but he didn't fit into their system anyways, and are way better without him. It helps them get out and run.

Props to Philly, I underestimated them, even tho i was really upset we lost even after Dwight nailed 2 clutch free-throws.

He has a point man. Throughout the season you guys looked like you can be a real threat in the East, but no one ever took you seriously because your team has not been proven in the playoffs. Regardless of Nelson being hurt, you have Rafer Alston as a replacement, not saying he is better, but Alston is a good PG to run things while he is out. You guys should be able to SWEEP the sixers.....you're playing a team that is .500 41-41 record and getting out hustled.

As a Magic fan and as much as I hate to say it but he's right. The playoffs is where you prove yourself. Orlando hasn't been getting any respect all year and heres their chance to prove people wrong and they simply aren't doing it. They aren't playing their style of basketball. Ball movement is the key for the Magic and I'm not seeing much of it.

Your normal basketball watcher will say to give Howard the ball more but honestly the Magic plays their best when the peremeter guys are shooting wide open jump shots (w/ good ball movement) and Howard is the cleanup guy. Everytime Howard has a game where he scores 25+ points we either bareley get a win or we lose. Not sure why that is but Orlando is one of the best teams in the NBA when they balance their scoring. Forcing the ball into Howard all game long just doesn't get it done for us.

In any case if we (the Magic) don't start playing like we normally do and get the ball moving around the arc and shooting our open 3's we are simply going to lose. Simple as that.

Philly has been playing great, def got under estimated. Anyone who says Philly is a bad team is nuts. I know they have a .500 record but they started clicking at the end of the season and now have found their rhythm in the playoffs. I think they would be a tough matchup for anyone.

Its because something is wrong with Turk, maybe that ankle is bothering him, and Shard needs to step it up. This is what we signed him for. We aren't giving him 20mill per year to be a 15ppg scorer in the playoffs. No excuses tho, we need to be better prepared.

And about Alston, yes he is good, but Nelson was really key late in games, he would hit the 3 and really step it up in the 4th. You would also know about that, he did it to you guys in LA.

Your normal basketball watcher will say to give Howard the ball more but honestly the Magic plays their best when the peremeter guys are shooting wide open jump shots (w/ good ball movement) and Howard is the cleanup guy. Everytime Howard has a game where he scores 25+ points we either bareley get a win or we lose. Not sure why that is but Orlando is one of the best teams in the NBA when they balance their scoring. Forcing the ball into Howard all game long just doesn't get it done for us.

In any case if we (the Magic) don't start playing like we normally do and get the ball moving around the arc and shooting our open 3's we are simply going to lose. Simple as that.

Philly has been playing great, def got under estimated. Anyone who says Philly is a bad team is nuts. I know they have a .500 record but they started clicking at the end of the season and now have found their rhythm in the playoffs. I think they would be a tough matchup for anyone.

u got it exactly right.

except the philly part. They really aren't that good. They werent clicking at the end either. they lost a critical game to Boston with only Pierce and Rondo playing basically. Then they barely beat cleveland without Lebron or Z playing in overtime. They do play great team basketball and Iggy is becoming a star this series.

Dwight Howard should get suspended for game 6. That hit on Sam Dalambert was a dangerous move by his part and he should get penalized for it.

People can die getting hit that way.

He will probably just get fined.

That would be wrong.

What do you base that on? I read this at true hoop (http://myespn.go.com/nba/truehoop):


This is what the rulebook says (my bold):

k. A technical foul, unsportsmanlike act or flagrant foul must be called for a participant to be ejected. A player, coach or trainer may be ejected for:
(1) An elbow foul which makes contact shoulder level or below
(2) Any unsportsmanlike conduct where a technical foul is assessed
(3) A flagrant foul where unnecessary and/or excessive contact occurs
EXCEPTION: Rule 12A--Section V--l(5)
l. A player, coach or trainer must be ejected for:
(1) A punching foul
(2) A fighting foul
(3) An elbow foul which makes contact above shoulder level

Seems quite clear to me that he should have been (but wasn't) ejected from the game. If the league doesn't suspend him for the following game, I think Philadelphia will have a legitimate grievance to level against them.

I am surprised Magic pulled it off with the win, not even close. No Dwight, no Lee, not even close. Sixers should of taken advantage of the losses.
