It would only be logical for us to blow out the Bulls, lose terribly to the Bobcats, and then beat a surging Blazers team. That's the typical week in the life of a Magic fan.

i fully expect dwight to shut down aldridge on the glass, but no one on our roster can match up with roy. he's going to have a monster game.

Yet another lame game thread :noway:

I'm watching this one so we better win if my Sunday is to be happy.

Really, no predictions - our team is unpredictable...

so you haven't been paying attention to basketball then :nonono:

let me just say since the Heat took them to the wire last night and they are on back to backs we better win

I am very impressed by how they have played considering their youth, when oden was pronounced out for the season I though they had no chance in the west this year

It means you underrate your opponent. Portland is a very good team, and in a much tougher conference. I'm not sure why you think they're not worth worrying about.

So far this game thread is the worst I've seen. You should be proud of yourself.

I mean Jailblazers???? Really? Dude, 6 years ago called and wants it's punchline back. Portland is not only playing well, but is the new model for every rebuilding team in the league.

Blazers suck???? Really? The Magic probably will and should beat them tonight, but to say they suck with the record they have....IN THE WEST is a little...no extremely ignorant.

Thank you for that intelligent, well-planned analysis.

I doubt you've watched one of their recent games then. They've become a different team since they last played us. To be honest, I'd be very worried about the Magic facing them in a 7-game series.

^i have watched them recently. but that is just my opinion on them. if the magic play well and not like a bunch of retards there is no reason they should lose this game. curious what team would you rather play in a 7 game serious out west? (of those actually making a run for a playoff spot)

I wouldn't want to play anyone in the West in a 7 game series to be honest.

It seems almost everyone in the General Board thinks we'll lose. We're underdogs, and that always seems to help us. :D

Crap.

Well, ESPN is stupid. Don't be fooled guys, we're still the underdogs, so go out and prove them wrong!

Hopefully we'll be in for a great game tonight guys.

Dwight scared the hell outta me considering we are bad enough at grabbin rebounds as it is. Hopefully our outside shots are fallin cuz I'm not counting on our inside game. But time will tell. :)

EDIT: Jailblazers? Really now, guys?
