And for my boldest prediction yet........

In the midst of a post game tongue thrashing, Stan Van Gundy, indeed....... Sharts.


We'll never know about that one, but I'll take your word for it.

As for the loss, I was pretty cautious about this one since they wiped away the Celtic streak a week back. Here's to our next 5 games! :pray: :pray: :pray:

Gerald Wallace is a beast....

See why I wanted him on the team so badly?



What I seen is that he still woudnt have been a good addition. Dude cant shoot. He was horrible in the clutch. Hes a great player, no doubt. But not a good fit here IMO.

I just can't wait until our schedule gets easier. We easily have had the hardest schedule in the league so far. I know you guys are mad and I am to, but we have to take that into account.

don't worry once this team learns the inside-out game, and doesn't have to be told after every timeout, we will be good.

SVG is to blame tonight 100%. He kept playing Keyon and Bogans and didn't even look to JJ or, better yet, Mo.

Just like when it got easy and we had Indy / Atlanta / Memphis all at home? This team sucks and thats the it.

Yeah Hedo's chances at the ASG are long gone now.

But Gerald Wallace was like 12 of 30, it's just those free throws that killed us that half of those we shouldn't have gave him.

Im fuming. This was just pathethic. Horrible. Indy, Mem, Utah, and now this one. Worst losses of the season. Yes the team looked tired. Yes the schedule is horrible. But there was a 19pt lead in the 3rd quarter and at the end of the quarter is tied. You cant lose 19pt second half lead. I dont undestand. I just dont. Its like they **** fell asleep and not supringly the other team got energetic. I cant watch that anymore, i just cant watch the Magic contine allowing things like that to happen to give up second half double digit leads and all in the same way.

Our guards have been in the league far too long to really 'learn' how to play that way. They are who they are, garbage. They aren't going to change.. the only way to fix the problem is to ship their sorry asses out of here.

I would complain about how we didn't get it inside to Dwight enough, but he was clearly getting fouled on every touch. His FT's were dropping 'til IMO he got tired or lost focus, like d12fan pointed out.

I'm afraid of our second-half schedule. Too many bad teams... I just don't want us to embarrass ourselves.

Wait, too late, we just did tonight.

Well Wallace is notorious of getting to the line.

12-14 Ft's in games for wallace aren't uncommon.

keyon DID look terrible the whole time...

but again i missed the 3rd, WTF happened???????

Carlos did fine.

Bogans look lackadaisical on defense. He even had to be yelled at by Stan to guard the ball on one inbound an responded by mouthing something back and not even putting his hands. Ball was in turn inbounded directly under the rim to GW for an easy 2.

He was really destroyed by GW throughout the fourth. It seems like something goes wrong and Stan yells at him then he responds with a half effort.

I'd rather watch Dwight hit 1 for 2 than watch 3s get chucked at the end of the shot clock.

don't worry keyon and carlos will be free agents soon. and hopefully we will never see them again except for 2 or 4 times a year.

Couple observations on Hedo; One, except for one shot tonight he's pretty much abandoned his midrange game. Some of those drives into traffic he could have just pulled up from 10-15 feet and gotten a great look. But the lack of confidence in his jumper right now and, as they said on the broadcast, fatigue I think are causing these problems. Two, not sure if anyone's noticed, but Hedo has been getting some very tough defenders for a while now, e.g Kirilenko and Wallace. Teams are paying a lot of attention to him, and that's something he will have to adjust to.

There's no doubt that things will come around again soon. I think it will start with the threes and work its way into the midrange game again.
