As a Orlando fan I am more worried about Shaq in the paint tonite. I'm guessing that the Lakers should blow us away which will keep Shaq from having a monster night. Of course, the Magic could somehow pull off a victory but with nobody to guard Shaq I fear it will be a long game for Tracy and the gang.

53-48 Magic at the half. T-Mac left with back spasms just before the end of the half, he had 18 points at the time. Zaza played very well before getting into foul trouble. Shaq has been contained pretty well, Zaza did a good job on him. Good first half, but without T-Mac(Who's return is questionable) I doubt we can hold on for the victory.

12 point game with 5 minutes + left in the third. It's actually looking good for the Magic. let's hope we can continue this...

orlandos playing very impressive through 3. stricklands stepped up and juwan howards getting some points on the board, albiet his low post moves have looked really slow and sloppy :\. holding shaq to 15 points through 3 quarters is always a plus, regardless if its on 66% shooting.

Yeah, the Magic have a superstar(T-Mac), 2 good players who both happen to play the same position(Gooden and Howard) and 9 players that should be in the NBDL. It's impressive that they've won 13 games with this team. They would be lucky to win 5 the whole season without T-Mac, seriously. They're that bad.

I seriously doubt they would win 5 games w/o T-mac.. I think they would win 2 or 3..

10 of those games that magic won, mcgrady had 25+ points and several rebounds/assists.. you dont know how big of an impact tmac is..just look at the double digit losses when he was out..

No Kobe or Malone, Shaq is their ONLY threat. If T-Mac plays a win isn't impossible.
What about LA's defensive threats who proved their worth in the clutch? Derek Fisher :yes:

They choked big time. No question.

It was clearly a steal by Fish. Rod knew it better because he's a veteran PG and should know it better to keep the ball away from defender, especially with Fisher. Obviously things turn around within a second or two.

If Orlando can land a guy like Emeka Okafor, this season could be a blessing in disguise. No doubt Tmac will learn a lot from going through this season. This team can score points with just about anyone. If they actually got a good interior presence they could still be pretty good. And next year, being in that sorry division, it should be pretty easy to win it.

Potential differences between this season and next season: Okafor, healthy Hill, healthy Garrity, Howard gone for someone who fills a need better, Gooden hopefully getting back into form, Bogans and Pachulia improving and we'll be playing in the worst division in the league.

All is not lost yet.
