Game 4 - Sun. April 26, Orlando @ Philadelphia, 6:30 p.m., TNT (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/preview?gid=2009042620)

PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Andre Iguodala saw Dwight Howard standing between him and the basket and went right at the NBA’s best defender.

This isn’t the same Iguodala who flopped in his first playoff series as the man for the Philadelphia 76ers. He’s playing with the same aggressiveness and fearlessness that another A.I. displayed every time he stepped on the court.

The surprising Sixers are two wins away from pulling off a stunning upset over the Orlando Magic in their Eastern Conference first-round series. The often-criticized Iguodala is a major reason Philadelphia is in this position after stumbling into the playoffs with a 41-41 record.

“Andre really wants it,” Sixers coach Tony DiLeo said. “He’s really matured. You can see him out there. He’s on a mission. He’s taking it aggressive. We’re seeing him grow before our eyes. I think the people in Philly know about him, but now I think the national audience will get to see what Andre’s all about.”

I think the Magic will even up the series here. Too much at stake and I think they'll finally get it to click.

we need this game. if we win this then we even the series and we go back to our homecourt.

04-26-2009, 06:42 AM
this game is important

04-26-2009, 08:29 AM
Hard for me to say I think they are going to win this game because of how inconsistent they can be. But it is crucial we win this one if we're going to take the series.

Magic take this one only if Hedo is productive. If he gets it done along with Howard and Lewis, Magic should win this one.

SVG's frantic coaching style could also be a negative influence as well. It has caused a lockerroom full of doubt.

Philly is playing loose with the sense they have nothing to lose, as they weren't supposed to win anyway.

Neither team can hold a lead, so I think this will be another close one. Sammy D's shoulder continues to give him problems, hopefully he can suck it up and play good D on Dwight again. I think that it we'll win if a guy like Willie Green can find a way to knock down some open 3's(which he has failed to do). This is the most important game for the Magic, so I expect maximum effort from them, so any defensive lapses or bad turnovers could spell trouble for us.

36-36 at the end of the half.

Magic leading by 10 with 7 minutes left. Does Philly have another comeback left in em? I highly doubt it.

04-26-2009, 09:13 PM
Hedo with a clutch shot

04-26-2009, 09:14 PM
OHHHH, Iggy got off a good shot. Damn, good finish to that game. Hedo, man, that was cold blooded son.

04-26-2009, 09:32 PM
...uhh whoever was guarding Hedo.. that was terrible defense gave him way to much room.

Clutch shot by Hedo though this is a real good series. :)

04-26-2009, 09:32 PM
Another good game here.

The third great game in this series. I know that the Bulls-Celtics series is supposed to be the best, but this one is also a great series. 3 terrific finishes.
