We are going to play in Philly, Lee has been ruled out and Dwight might get suspended for elbowing Dalembert... Uh-oh... We're in trouble... I hope its only one game... If its a two game suspension, we are done...

whoa there is no way we are done!! even if dwight is out one game we have the talent to beat them! think about it without dwight we are an average team just like the sixers. we still have a strong team! dont lose confidence

u have no chance without howard. we can guard ur shooters, and we can single cover ur entire lineup.

no one will be left open

Just like you guarded them last night when they shot 8-23 from the 3 point line right? You have no answer for lewis and turkoglu is coming on strong the past 2 games. The sixers have fallen back to earth and they will lose tomorrow regardless if howard plays or not.

fallen back to earth?

we havent left the ground yet. we havent been playing our best ball either. weve only seen it in brief stretches and big runs in the 4th.

hey idc u can underestimate everyone as much as u want! u couldnt stop rashard? 13pts in the 4th, alston gets whatever he wants. hes to fast for miller. once jj and peitrus start hittin it will be dangerous! turk is gettin stronger. not to mention battie has a jump shot and gortat can get rebounds and he can do left and right hooks too! were a deep team u just havent seen all of us yet.

wrong, willie green couldnt stop rashard.....for some reason they let willie switch onto him off screens which is the dumbest thing ever. willie cant guard shard 1-on-1.

iggy, thad, and evans can guard him.

I wouldn't be so sure of that. Our average team has had you on the ropes every game even with Howard. Without him I can't see us losing. We'll just have to see what happens without him. Hopefully for the Sixers, he actually gets suspended and doesn't get the star treatment.

thad was the one guarding rashard alot of the 4th quarter! and yes u guys had us on the ropes but u know we sucked those games and u guys still won in the last seconds by 2 points each game! there still not where they can be so lets just see what happens. i agree with nyckid12

What do you mean haven't left the ground? Your team was the WORST 3 point shooting team in the nba, not one of the worst THE WORST, and now they make over 5 three's a game and shoot 37% from beyond the arc. And your team has a .500 record, they were up 2-1 in the series and you people are all hyped up saying crap like "we're better than the magic" and "we have the better team", please this team is average at best.

I think game 6 will be won by the Sixers... Yes, we are an average team like the Sixers without Dwight... The difference between the two teams is the Magic without Dwight does not have any stregth in frontcourt... Without a true pf and now, without a center... I just hope the Magic won't play sloppy in game 7... Another 20-20 by Dwight will seal the deal...

Are you serious? You have been shooting lights out from 3 especially in game 1! And you are the worst 3 point shooting in the league... Right?

magicbucs4eva
04-29-2009, 04:31 PM
they dont have any strengths in the frontcourt either! if battie steps up which he is capable of and jj and peitrus shoot good i think it will be close! dont count us out yet!

I think they have a decent frontcourt... JJ and Peitrus do better step up! Lee has been doing great in this series... I do hope you guys are right... I'd rather win game 6 and let the guys rest while the Bulls and the Celts bang each other up till game 7 with OTs every game...

man whats this guy talking about sixers aint playing their best? they're shooting good which isnt them, them beat us twice which they havent in 2yrs, millers hittin 3's, sam still sucks and iggys hittin 3s like he's trippin.
i hope we embarass them tomorrow in philly w/o dwight. its gonna be an even bball game. just gotta start pietrus.

macc
04-29-2009, 05:26 PM
Pietrus will def be our X factor, I just don't get the guy, talent wise he can shoot from anywhere, has one of the best drives to the basket in the NBA and plays great defense, he just doesn't play aggressive enough. I want to see him in the iso a few times to see what he can do. Maybe that would boost his confedence for the rest of the game. Either way we'll prob lose game six, losing 2 starters is tough enough, esp when one is D12. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Just because we've been making 3's doesn't mean that we've been playing our best. Our best is actually when we're forcing TO's and getting points in transition. We've done that for brief periods in this series, but we haven't put it together for a complete game. You guys have actually done a very good job of taking care of the ball and that's taking away from what is our biggest strength. Will see what you think of our best ball when we force you into 20+ turnovers in one of these games(if we can do it).

impress me by actually beating us by more than GW shot with under 5secs how bout that one, im very aware a wins a win but this series is 1GW shot in game1 due to US losing a darn near 20 lead in the 4th,
so do that for me

^^well, when Dwight Howard stops taking two steps, a hop, a skip, and a jump in the paint...we might be able to win without it coming down to a last second shot

It definitely sucks that we have to go without Howard in game 6. But maybe this will help Hedo and Pietrus get back on track. Without them we aren't going far regardless of the outcome of this series.

True... But I'm just a little scared of playing til game 7... Anything could happen... What if they don't miss on 3 pointers again and our shots don't fall? I would rather close it out at game 6 already... I hope Dwight learned his lesson and don't lose his cool in any situation...

Yea but a team always runs that risk, it's just from game to game though. In the end, it always works out to what a team usually does. And don't lose faith yet, I know these philly fans can agree with me that most of them in the beginning of the series had little to no faith that the sixers would even contest the magic and now look where they are only down 3-2 in the series and now they have a game at home without orlando's best player. I guess what i'm saying is don't lose hope just because howard and lee aren't playing.

This is why I firmly believe we will win the series. First, you have to admit that Dwight has won you every game with his rebounding and easy dunks and without him you guys will almost surely lose and even if its a close one I still believe we will come out on top. We will ride the momentum down to Orlando without any pressure on us at all because nobody expected us to come close to winning, while you guys were supposed to be final contenders. If you fall behind early at home in Game 7 your fans will begin to get more and more edgy and Van Gundy will start his twitching again. The players will feel all the pressure of the fans on their backs and we will come through with the victory.
Not trying to start anything but this is how I see it playing out. You have to admit if we win Game 6 then all the pressure is on you not us.

Dwight has won us every game? Game 2 he had an average night and courtney lee was a monster that game, game 4 hedo drained a 3 pointer to win it for the magic, and the last game was a team effort where lewis, howard, turk, and alston played very well. So to you I say howard has not won every game for us, he helped a hell of a lot but it was team play that won us those games. Who also said we were finals contenders cause I really would love to see it? Seriously, unless you mean the ECF then all we've been hearing is the same everyone else has been hearing, it's the cavs and lakers. And even if you're talking the ECF, a lot of people still had orlando losing to the celtics next round without KG. You also talk about momentum, i'm sorry aside from all this bullcrap with the refs and howard, the magic are coming together as a team, playing defense, playing team ball, and remembering what got them 59 wins this year, and have won the past 2 games. Orlando has the momentum and don't say the sixers are going to win on thursday just because howard is out because we still have plenty of shooters and are playing very good defense. It should be a closely contested game and I see orlando winning it in game 6.

I've been reading a lot that without Dwight we are toast, but I started thinking and IIRC in Dec. Gortat did really well in Dwights absence. Something in the area of 15pts 13 rebs. If he does this well, which I think he will, we still should have the upper hand in game 6.

I'm not to worried about tonight, granted no Howard and Lee is a big blow but it's not like we're playing the Cavs or Lakers. We're playing the 76ers, if we can keep doubling Iggy and making their other non shooters take jump shots then we'll be fine. Turk is capable of scoring 20+ Lewis is capable of scoring 20+ Alston & MP as well. Just get good ball movement starting with Alston penetrating and dishing and we'll be fine.

A win against Philly w/o two of our starters would be very nice.

Worse news other than game 6, courtney lee is probably going to miss the rest of the playoffs with his fractured sinus. He is going to have surgery on it and the preliminary signs are that he's done for the rest of the playoffs. Damn and he was playing as well as anyone this series not named dwight howard.

I know! I've seen a few games this year where he has scored 20+ points and makes it look easy. I know the Magic isn't a selfish team but at times if you know you're good and you know you can drive anytime you like you should take advantage of that. MP is to me the X factor on our team, depending on how he does off the bench will determine how far we get into the playoffs.

04-30-2009, 06:04 PM
yeah but he has struggled with injurys and inconsistency. he won't drive because he might get a injury. imagine jj redick with pietrus athleticism.
