Should be a good series... Magic in 6

This is a difficult series to predict--it could go seven, it could last only 5. I'll split the difference and agree with jpro611. Magic in 6.

The Magic have a glaring advantage, and they better give him the ball every time down the court. Dwight should have at least 20 FGA. Magic W.

Some people think Collins is a "Dwight-stopper". I don't buy it.

Might not get 20 FGAs, mainly because he'll be hacked to death down low, but he should get some big touches, for sure.

I just hope Anderson stays hot...otherwise, our bench isn't going to be good at all.

ManRam
04-16-2011, 12:03 PM
I'm also assuming that Collins starts, but I'm not sure if that's official yet...

GREATNESS ONE
04-16-2011, 03:18 PM
This should be one hell of a series. The Hawks match up perfect with Orlando having a slight edge in positions with Horford,Johnson and Smith. Orlando has the man beast tho and he should get the ball 15-25 times and just control the paint. I'm excited to watch this series play out and think the key to the series is Hinrich vs Nelson.

Taking Orlando in 6. This is a good series for them to play before the Bulls next round.

KnicksorBust
04-16-2011, 04:35 PM
Not to disrespect the Hawks but the Magic are so underrated going into the playoffs it's comical. There is not one player on the Hawks or Bulls that can handle Dwight down low. I'm expecting him to put the league on notice this year. I think they are a really sleeper to make a finals run.

You could argue that individually, the Hawks have the advantage at SG, SF, PF and the bench...

In my write-up for the Round Table thing, I pointed that out. However, this is an example of why just comparing positional match ups is a flawed science. The Magic defense, and the advantages they have at PG and C probably will be the difference.

Dwight needs to go back to establishing better position before he gets the ball. Now that he has a good offensive game, he doesn't fight as hard for positioning like he used to.

So much inconsistency with everyone on this team besides Dwight.

I wouldn't say they're "letting" Howard score.

ManRam
04-16-2011, 07:56 PM
I agree with the announcers. Gil had that huge game where he basically just was hitting threes (still wasn't showing any lift or athleticism), but this is the best he's looked, even compared to that game.

Great sign. Great to see JJ playing well too. Our bench has been so bad, but now it looks like it did 2 months ago: great.

I know. Just think if Horford can play PF all game and camp out at that mid-range shot, instead of having to stay in the paint while Josh Smith jacks up 3's like he is Jamal Crawford or something.

*Silver&Black*
04-16-2011, 08:04 PM
I love Crawfords game. I don't know why he doesn't start for Atlanta.

Dwight Howard - Unstoppable (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA8z7f7a2Pk).

And yet, the Magic down by 7.

Can Atlanta do two things:
1) Keep up their hot shooting and
2) survive the foul trouble Dwight's gotten them into?

Those two factors determine this game, imo. If the Hawks shooters go cold, and/or if they have to dig too deep into their bench, they're toast.

I get mad when people slander their team to boost someone's stock, which happens a lot in MVP races.

But seriously, the Orlando supporting cast truly is as inconsistent as it gets. I don't care about MVPs and that ****, and I like the role players more than Dwight (I'm weird, but I love Jameer, Hedo and JJ a lot), but for real...they're a let down at times, and tonight is one of them. When I bash them (and I do a lot) it isn't just because I want to hype Dwight. It's honest feelings.

Honestly I don't understand why teams don't defend us like this everygame. Boston has it figured out, LA has it figured out, the best way to d is to play everyone straight up and let Howard get his.

I can't wait for the 4th. This might be the best game today, if Howard keeps it up and ATL keeps scoring.

I predicted 2 things I come to regret on day 1 of play-offs, first I predicted Orlando will beat Chicago in round two but it looks like they wont even be there, secondly I predicted a Miami loss for game 1, I was close on this one and never thought that Bosh could carry us. Lebron and Wade are just slow early play-off players, by game 3 they will be ok but the two have a history for playing bad in the beginning of playoff games.

Hawks in 5 btw.
