    I think we will see a completely different Magic team this time around, In fact, for the rest of this series.

    I agree ken. The magic had a twenty point lead at one point,SVG will remind them of that and i expect that they will come out and build such leads again. This time around the magic wont let up as they did in game one. Going in i thought it was going to be huge if RA could score the ball and not pass up so many shots,well he had a nice game and wasnt the reason we lost the game. To me watching the game back,dwight's eye injury was the difference in the game and really gave the sixers some time to play without dwight on the floor as well as gain some confidence. That cant happen again which brings me to my first key for tonight's game. (1)4 Quarters of DH defensively. Dwight has to be a monster around the rim blocking shots,i dont think the sixers are going to shoot the ball that well again so at some point theyll start going hard to the basket (which is their strong suit anyway)our wing players have to do a much better job contesting shots and dwight must crush whats left of their confidence by swatting shots at the rim. (2) Contesting shots. We let the sixers shoot way to many un-contested shots,they are far from a three point shooting team and they hit a good number which means we werent at the intensity level we needed to be at on the perimeter. We need to do a much netter job on A.I.'s help. (3)Protect the ball because Philly feeds off of the fast break. CL turned the ball over late and within seconds A.I. was laying it up at the other end,if were going to beat them we cant give them anything easy plain and simple. They dont have a great shooting team at all and if your intensity level is right this is a team waiting to get blown out.
