Massive mental breakdown by Ross which led to the Korver 3.

I've been very pleased by Vuc's performance this series. He's doing what a playoff team's best player should be doing. I still want to see him do it in front of a live playoff crowd and not during this sterile bubble environment.

This was real coaching malpractice to end this game. Fultz and Fournier having to defend Giannis in crunch time.

I almost feel sorry for Evan...usually he at least gets his numbers. What a blow to his self-esteem and his next payday.

Absolute atrocious all-around game for Fournier once again. They have attacked him all night with no resistance. Even Matthews burned him.

All said it done, with AG-ISAAC-CHUMA helping with a player like Giannis, and getting rid of Fournier, were not in bad shape. We just desperately need a real goto scorer. I feel like if we had a second fiddle to Vooch, that could give us 20 during this series in the clutch, we would have easily had a chance at this game, and game 2

Clark not seeing the court in the 4th quarter is rough.

Clark played some great defense on Giannis.

Is there any feasible way to clear enough cap to sign VanVleet? Asking for a friend.

All it took was 2 minutes in the early 4th to lose the game. It was like when Markelle went to the bench, the lead went away from ORL like it stole something from Markelle's house :lol:

No disrespect to DJ or any ORL player though, proud of the Heart and Hustle by every single player. Let's get Game 5 with that same energy!

Good effort by Fultz today. I liked his aggression at the end. Hopefully, The Magic can avoid elimination on Wednesday.

This is what i don't get with Clifford.....Ok so we had energy and rhythm with Fultz and Vuc playing towards the end of the 3rd but i get it you can't play them every minute so you bring in DJ and the company....but when they came in they held on for a little then you started to see the energy and momentum slip and slip and slip....CLIFFORD SEES THIS.....AND DOES NOTHING....stick to the chart....don't bring them back in earlier to stop the bleeding....keep them on the bench because....reasons? where's the IN-GAME adjustments?

So -- we all saw this and I'm sure Cliff does also but he really has limited options. You bring back Fultz too early and he is not going to have enough gas. He actually did bring him back well earlier than usual. The fact of the matter is that Cliff isn't playing with a full deck -- its really damn hard against a stacked Bucks team especially when they are hitting shots.

To me if there is one criticism here its failing to play Clark in the 4th. He was playing the best D on the team on Giannis and shooting better than Evan. This was probably Evan's best playoff game - ever - and he was still godawful. I don't know who to beg that Evan opts out this year but that is probably the biggest positive that could happen to the Magic this offseason....

The competitive level was much better compared to Games 2 and 3. Credit the players for playing hard and not giving up. Not even surprised Markelle had a bounce back game. The kid works extremely hard and he is a smart basketball player. He will only get better from this experience. Vuc and Fultz tried to carry this team on their back but unfortunately Coach Cliff let them down with some bad sub patterns. He has a 5-15 playoff record. He can get your team to the playoffs but it does not seem he can get them to win playoff games.

Is that a joke? Let's trade coaches and see how Cliff does. The Bucks have talent and shooting oozing out of their lineup all over the place and the Magic are lucky to field a few healthy starters. Under Cliff we are seeing the best Vooch we have ever seen at any time in his career and he has strung together one win and one very gutty performance out of four games against the clear cut East #1 and the reigning MVP.

I think its totally fair to question some of his sub patterns and its also totally fair to criticize, but your comments here are myopic and obtuse.
