Just completely unbelievable.


You have to remember that a lot of the Orlando population comes from the north. This is why Knicks and Celtics games are awful to go to.

our team is bad and the Knicks are less bad than our bad team

that's what happens

it wasn't like that when Nate Robinson and David Lee were suiting up for them

Rookies guarding Carmelo arent going get any calls in the fourth. It would be a carmelo parade to the FT line. Also NY went small, we dont want Andrew guarding Carmelo.

Basically JV doesn't trust Andrew to make the correct rotations on defense. Andrew again made a couple mistakes on that end tonight and JV is quick with the hook for the rookies when they do that. Also, I think he trusts McRoberts more as a veteran, especially down the stretch although it hurt us tonight with him guarding Melo.

Moe or Dequan should have been out there guarding Melo in the 4th. Vucevic continues to rebound well, Nicholson needs more minutes, and Afflalo is a good shooting guard. I'd keep him over JJ.

McRoberts isnt going to get any calls either.

I bet we would have won had Hedo not stopped momentum with that awful 3pt miss in the 4th.

This was my first game in Orlando (visiting from Australia, first Magic game was actually the loss in Washington a couple weeks back) and was totally confused by this. Even arriving at the arena there was so many more NY jerseys, and as the game went on I was getting pretty freaked out, hella surreal.

i think we just have to give JV some time to adjust his rotations. it is his first season as a coach, he will make mistakes. for example, GSW did pretty bad with Mark Jackson last year, but this year they are overcoming the expectations (i havent watched they play, but they have a good record)

Redick looked like he was about to pass a kidney stone after the loss. Afflalo looks like a Wolverine victim. All you can sometimes do is laugh when a guy like Melo goes off. Hopefully they do well on the road.

"Aaron Gordon will cost Henny's job by Dec 2016." Predicted Dec 2014.

"O'Quinn will have a longer and more successful NBA career than Nicholson." Predicted Jun 2012. Verified on Dec 2014.

It has nothing to do with how well teams are currently playing either. I went to a knicks game last year and again it was all knicks fans in the arena.

I sat next to a family of Knicks fans. The boy who sat next to me would turn to me and go "haha" every time the Knicks made a major basket. Took all the restraint I had not go off on him.

It's always been that way and I've been a fan since 89. You just don't hear them cheer quite as loud when the Knicks aren't doing as well. As I said I went to one of those and won't go to any more.

Reminds me of going to magic games when the pistons were good... same swarm of obnoxious fans.

I seriously think these losses are taking their toll on JJ .. Like he's being drained.

I also think that 'IF" the magic are to make a trade somehow in the next couple of months, JJ will probably be the one dealt... 'BUT' I'm of the mindset that nothing will get done before the deadline.
