    This will be a great chance for the other guys to step up in Howard's and Lee's absence.

    Game 6 will be difficult for the Magic to win, but not impossible if everyone contributes.

    Funny how only Magic fans feel that this dirty azz play by this Superman wannabe wasn't "intentional". Give me a break! Dwight gets out-dunked by Spud Web 2k9 in the dunk contest, then he tries to WWF D-Bert!? Friggin' loser. The people's elbow is riding the pine for game 6. O-Town should be greatful they have a one game lead going into this game. In the end, who cares about either one of these teams? It's not like either one has a chance against Lebron or Kobe.

    I agree with the one game suspension of Howard, and am disappointed he could not control himself better. He put his team in a difficult situation for Game 6.

    Regarding your other comment... of course, on paper it's supposed to be the Lakers and the Cavs in the Finals, but that's why they play the games; you just never know what might happen.

    Yes, you're right, the Magic should be grateful they have a 3-2 lead over the 76ers, as 4 of the 5 games have been close, but I give the 76ers credit for playing the Magic a lot tougher than anyone thought they would.

    HAHAHA! Not like either one had a chance against Lebron or Kobe???? Your kidding right? I guess you never watched the Magic play. Magic beat the Cav's 2 out of 3 times this year and beat the Lakers both timmes they played them. Talk your crap somewhere else, Friggin' loser!!

    LOL...Nice Ken! Yea,dwight deserved the suspension. Surprised me he did that. Like mike said first,this is a big opportunity for guys like JJ and marcin to show they're worth. Me personally i wouldnt start either,i would go with a veteran line-up of peitrus and battie replacing CL and DH. That way JJ and marcin could stay in their natural back-up roles.

    Courtney Lee will have surgery on his fractured sinus, and is in danger of missing the rest of the playoffs.

    Very unfortunate, as Lee has been playing well, but the Magic can't be feeling sorry for themselves, they have to move forward.

    It'll be interesting to see what lineup SVG comes out with tonight; I hope the Magic can at least keep it close throughout the game, and give themselves a chance to win late.

    I just read on the Slantinel that SVG plans on starting Gortat and Reddick. I can understand Gortat, but not sure about the Reddick decision.

    Only thing i can figure is he hopes Reddick will spread the floor with his supposed 3pt threat. And that Petrus has been pretty good coming off the bench for a spark.

    The Magic have a very real chance of winning this game. How many times have we seen games where one or more of the star players were missing and they still managed a win over a good team. It can happen.
