Game 6 Thu. April 30, Orlando @ Philadelphia, 7:30 pm EDT NBA TV (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/preview?gid=2009043020)



PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Dwight Howard will have plenty of elbow room wherever he watches Game 6.

Howard could stretch out in his hotel room and click on the TV. He could watch Orlando play Philadelphia from a restaurant or catch updates on a hand-held device.

What Howard won’t do Thursday night is play. Orlando’s “Superman” has been grounded.

Howard was suspended one game by the NBA on Wednesday for his elbow on Sixers center Samuel Dalembert in Orlando’s Game 5 victory.

The two tangled going for a rebound in the first quarter and Howard whacked Dalembert on the left side of the face. Howard drew a technical foul for the hit.

Howard said in a statement on Wednesday he was disappointed, but respected, the league’s decision.

I like Dwight, and I think the elbow was an outlying incident that's inconsistent with his usual character and game, but I'm glad he did get suspended for it. That was clearly the right decision.

Philly should win this game, especially considering the fact that D-12 was suspended for game 6.

Philly takes it to 7. 2 starters missing and if the Magic win they will need like 30+ from Hedo and 25+ from Lewis. Get ready for a Game 7!

Should change the starting lineup for Orlando, Redick and Gortat will replace Lee and Howard.

^haha, likewise


Wow, I called it. I knew the magic would show up without Howard. Too many Philly haters on this board who thought this game was going to be a easy win. Ill give philly the respect for the 2 games they barely won though

Sixers thought they would get a cheap win by whining to get Dwight suspended :laugh:

The Sixers deserved to get beat for playing like crap.

But likewise, Dwight MOST absolutely 100% deserved to get suspended. That was very clear.

I knew it wouldn't be easy. The Magics lost the 2 times Dwight scored 30+ points, anything under 30 and they won. So maybe there better without Dwight? lol..They should just take 50 3s a game.

Thankyou for some respect.

What people don't realize is we (Magic) have more than one all star. People forget that. Just because Lewis and Turk don't score 25 + points a game doesn't mean they're not capable of it. When you have a team where at least 4-5 players can score 20+ any given night then you share the ball more and it translates into more wins.

Same goes with your Celtics. Ray Allen doesn't avg 25+ points but just like last night he shows he can score anytime he needs to score.

I was impressed with how they won last night.

Yeah, it's a sign of a pretty great team when they rally together in the absence of their star and come up with a big win like that. A lot of people have been bagging on Orlando for being too soft, but that was a tough outing and they delivered bigtime.
