I hope Dwight gets as physical with kg and Perkins like when he went up against shaq. It should be a defensive standoff, I expect low scoring, and a lot of Stan yelling.
Leon Powe is still out BTW with that sprained knee, he and Tony Allen are supposedly a ways off from returning...Which is totally cool with me, Powe loves playing the Magic...
I think we're going to win this one. Dwight was humiliated last time when Boston visited, so I think Stan will be in his head all day to remind him of that.
If we can't beat the Celtics at home with Garnett still getting back to regular minutes, we don't deserve the second seed.
Magic win. They hafta..
We need this game.
Dwight- Crush their pathetic big men...except for KG, he aint pathetic.
I PREDICT THE OFFICIATING WILL BE TERRIBLE.
There will be an altercation between Dwight Howard and Perkins. KG will get in his face. Battie and gortat will try to back up Dwight because no one in the court has the balls to defend him. They will be ejected.
I want to beat Boston real bad but I'm worried about capturing the 2nd seed and having to face Detroit in the first round
Magic get luck of the Irish against Powe-less Celtics
Dwight is the key, stop whining and start being uber physical. Smack Perkins in the mouth early and put Garnett on his *** early and it sets the tone and makes a statement.
Uber-physical= offensive fouls because Perkins and Davis are floppers.
Perkins is no flopper. The guy plays Dwight as tough as anyone else in the league. If Dwight has a subpar night, he has himself to blame.
I don't see us winning this game.
How come the Celtics starters have huge pictures, and we have the teeny tiny ones?
That's because all the Celtics players have big heads from their egos
We are not going to win, I would love for them to Prove me wrong, but just like Detriot, they know how to guard the bigs and the 3 point line,
Why exactly do we want to win this game? #7 - Detroit Pistons Let the Celtics play them in the first round plz.
The Celtics whine and complain but the magic take this one
Destroy the dirty, cheap shotting, tommy heinsohn cheering Celtics
The Magic are favored by 3.5 points.
I think this will be a statement game for the Magic... Our coming out party on National TV. I say we win because I'm sure the statement were trying to make is not "We suck".
Allen worries me
Perkins sure gets away with a lot of pushing.
Rondo out for the game?
No, he took acting classes with pierce
Shard mugged, no call, then Big Baby just lowers his head and gets the call. Wooooow.
Glenn Davis = the rashard stopper.
Davis u fat a** go for the ball and not howards legs. I bet if the ball was a cheeseburger you will get it
Moore is just useless against Dwight.
I hate that I can hear applause when Ray Allen hits a three. I guess it's not the Orlando fans' fault, but it's annoying that there is such a notable Celtic crowd.
Glad to see Orlando still cant get a call against Boston. Watch the Celts fans make a huge deal out of 1 missed call against them for a week again ...
Boston sure gets a lot of help for a team that is supposed to be so good. I guess they need it.
Will someone please let the refs know that they don't have to be pro-Boston. They can beat Orlando without making it an 8 on 5 affair.
Its the CelticsLakersCavs syndrome. The refs have strict orders to not call fouls against these teams.
Pierce just pushing his way all around the court
What chucks by House.
House gets the chucks to go in, pietrus cant finish layups, go figure
There's that silky smooth Rondo jumper.
Boston is really good. The Magic aren't going to pull away from them.
Dwights about to drop kick walker if he keeps it up
Pierce is able to foul anyone without getting called for it
If garnett is only playing 8 minutes in the third we need to give it all we got to limit him as much as possible. They just arent the same team without him
Can somebody please stop Perkins from looking like a star? Not only it hurts the Magic, but also hurts my fantasy team in the playoffs.
I just want to see doc get chucked out and go NATO at the refs again get one fined and then the Celtics will surly lose in the playoffs the refs will hate the Celtics be a lonnnnnnng hard run for them then
Commence standard 3rd quarter meltdown.
I think we got away with one there........lol. Pierce got mugged
Look at pierce flopping around. What a joke.
Doc looks silly arguing a call with the amount of favoritism his big 3 get.
When doesn't Doc or the whole Celtic organization complain about something that doesn't go their way? They're a bunch of cry babies
Is it me or have the Celtics played better without garnett
I wish they would put Marbury in. This game is getting too close.
I'm tired of the C's getting every bounce and every call.
So much flopping in one game.
The refs are lettin 'em play. On both sides, lots of non-calls.
I cant see us beating the Celtics in a series
What a good win. But something needs to be done about Hedo taking 16 shots and sucking like he does.
I don't want to here espn saying if KG played the whole game it would of been different because we were killing them when he was in
Nice to celebrate a win, but we can go ahead and drop back to the 3rd seed now. I just went to espn and checked the current playoff match-ups and saw us against the pistons in round one... It was sobering. That would be a energy consuming first round series for us.
A win is a win, but we need to close better if we want to beat them in a series.
At first, Stan made a comment about the fact that we played our best ball in the 16 minutes that KG was in. Then Stan took another question. But instead of answering the next question, he went back to Schmitz's question and proceeding to ask how a team can get on the "excuse list" of winning and losing based on who is present on their roster. Boston seems to be at the top of this list and he wondered how the Magic good get on it.
We played better when Garnett was in the game...and worse when he came out.
(+-) for Garnett = -10 Shows you how much the C's "need" KG. I hate Boston. A big ball of excuses.
It was crazy loud, especially at the end, I like the fact that the fans didn't fold to the cheering by the Celts fans, there are a lot of them here, lol with new dark green jerseys, I guess they had a bandwagon sale after the championship.
