PHILADELPHIA (AP)—By splitting the first two games in Orlando, the Philadelphia 76ers grabbed the home-court edge in their first-round playoff series against the Magic.

Don’t be too quick to call it an advantage.

Orlando tied Cleveland and Boston for the second-best road record in the NBA this season at 27-14, just two games behind the Lakers. The Magic played better on the road than the Sixers did at home (24-17).

Orlando also won both meetings in Philadelphia.

So while the Sixers certainly got Orlando’s attention with a 100-98 victory in Game 1, the third-seeded Magic struck a tone of respect and determination after evening the best-of-seven Eastern Conference series with a 96-87 win in Game 2 on Wednesday.

Well, hopefully we can do the same thing to Orlando that we did to Detroit last year and really take it to em' in game 3. Iggy, Miller, and Thad scored 71 out of our 87 points last game...we need more help from the rest of the team if we want to win.

Magic has been kinda of shakey past few weeks, but I think they will take this one in a close game.

Well if Orlando does what they should do then it should be a win for them. If they don't get any ball movement then they will lose.

I can't even believe some people actually thought this Magic team could go to the finals. I said since day one that teams that rely on the 3 pointer as much as the Magic never go far in the playoffs. It's not over yet but I can't see them getting past the 2nd round if they even get that far.

Orlando pulling a choke job, Rashard and Hedo really doing nothing all series.

No way Orlando is winning this series, Hedo and Rashard are chokers.

They've lost their 2 games by a total of 4 points. How is there "no way" they can win the series? Please, this series is nowhere near over and it will probably go 7 games.

They can win, but they won't, just like the Pistons can win the series vs the cavs but won't.

I said before the playoffs started that teams like Orlando that rely on the 3 point shot so much never go far in the playoffs. I know it's far from over but even if they do get by the 76ers I can't see them getting past the 2nd round.
