So by now I'm sure we all saw the outcome of the BOS/ORL game and I was thinking what does this do for each team?

By Boston coming back from 27 down without Rondo/Ray does that make them think twice about blowing it up? Do they now think they have the squad to make one last run and does anyone think they do?

Orlando on the other hand just lost a heart breaker. How do they respond to a loss like that with the Dwightmare hanging over the team? Can they brush it off and bounce back to continue on their so far solid season? What happens if they lose a few in a row?

Lots of questions about both teams from this one game.

No impact.

One game.

It's one game. No way either team bases their future on one game

One game like that can effect a mind set, why is that funny. :confused:

Chris Paul lost one game to the Lakers and was almost in tears freaking out when Pau touched his head. A devastating loss or huge win can surely have an impact on things moving forward. Not really a huge deal in terms of the standings but surely it effects team morale.

One game like that can fuel a win streak or start a losing streak. Mentality/confidence is a huge part of basketball.

No that was nothing like the LA/ORL game.

Well, Orlando are not a very good team when they play against upper elites. They have bad record, and it shows in the playoffs clearly.

D12 is good as gone, and may be its good thing but clearly they will never win a Championship with what they have now. Need a fresh start. New Coach get Mike Brown.

It means that they should sign everyone on the roster to new 5 year 60 million dollar contracts. Keep everyone until they're 45.

A lot! Now ORL will face their fears and decide that that their best hope is to trade Dwight to the Nets and BOS will trade us Ray Allen too!!!... END SARCASM

:facepalm:

The rest of the year smart guy, the rest of the year. OK, fine you don't want to talk about a the impact of a great game that's fine. Lets all go back to talking about something that is going to happen the Knicks trading Melo.

This is basically a thread about are the C's and Orl good enough to compete or should they blow it up that's gone way off track with poor sarcastic attempts.

Even as a Magic fan, I think this game and the one in Boston had a big impact on us. This team is mentally weak and our offense just shuts down versus Boston, only 8 points in a quarter is ridiculous. I sure hope we don't play them in the playoffs.

And they did all this without Rondo and Ray. Only exception I have is there is a high chance their rookie Moore doesn't score 16pts and 10 in the 4th...

It's the end. They are on the verge of losing out for the rest of the season. Better trade Howard to Toronto for Rasual Butler.

Why do people need to answer a ridiculous question SMART GUY?!? Orlando choked and it's as simple as that. You think either them or Boston can compete? Boston is too old, that's fact now. You see how they got destroyed by the Heat in the playoffs last year? Yeah, that's going to happen again, either by them or the Bulls. It's no surprise they're playing worse than predicted, because they're old and have no energy to fight this schedule. By the time they reach the playoffs (if they make it) they'll be burnt out that's for sure. Orlando on the other hand, has done nothing to improve. They will make the playoffs, but then get dismantled in the first or second round.

Nobody forced you to answer it but you're right there's no reason to discuss a historic come back on a NBA forum. Why even play the games lets just put MIA and CHI in the ECF.

It's actually 2 games considering how embarrasing the Monday game was

I think so. van Gundy's job if it was hanging may be in free fall. If it wasn't, maybe the GM and Owner will start paying closer attention for a bit.

The losses were embarrassing but I don't think it means a whole lot. Both teams are wishy-washy at best

Boston is rounding into shape, and anyone counting them as roadkill is being a bit premature.

I don't know if Boston will really use these games to consider trades, but they have to at least consider considering it.

The impact is this, now the Celts try to matchup with the Magic in the standings so they get to play them in the playoffs... It's obvious the Magic struggle mightily against the Celts, so maybe the Celts pull what the Grizz did last season (with the Spurs) and try to matchup with them.

One game can boost a team's condifence, yes. They surprised everyone with a stunning comeback which normally will boost a team's morale, however, will that one game determine whether the Celtics are prepared to make another run? no. They're off to a terrible start for themselves at 8-9 & for them to show and prove they're capable of making yet another run, that sort of play we saw in a small glimpse will have to stick for an extended period of time, otherwise, you'll continue to hear the bashing and criticism.
When Rondo and Ray-Ray come back healthy I think you'll see them start to settle in and play better. Their still a playoff contender in the East nonetheless, however, unfortunatly for them, age obviously has began to sink in and cause its effect's.

It's just one game, but this is just a reminder to never take your "foot off the gas" during a game.
