    Tonights game will be more about denver than it will be about the magic,if allen and melo decide to get everyone involved by passing the ball,then the magic are in big trouble. The magic's best hope is that they try and get themselves going and forget about their teammates,letting them be scorers is exactly what you want to do against them but you cant let them get to the hoop,you've gotta turn iverson and melo into jumpshooters tonight.

    Thanks for writing this. Usually I would write my own, but today I am just running too far behind to get to it.
