    The celtics will try their best to attack the paint on offense and rough-us-up on defense. The magic have to match their intensity from the jump. The key will be how well our perimeter players can play the pick-and-roll and how well hedo can handle the peirce isolation's. If their perimeter players are getting by our defenders and challenging dwight at the rim (rondo game one),dwight will get into foul trouble and we cant have that. In the first game their best play early was the pick-n-pop with big baby,the magic must do a better job on that play. To me there's nothing boston can do to defend this team except play more physical,if rashard and hedo are aggressive going to the basket off of dwight howard double teams we'll be in good shape. Without garnett and powe i just dont think the celtics have enough man-power let alone fire power. We have to do a better job of finding house when he's running off screens and scalabrine cant have 10 points off the bench,if we play better in three area's we can steal another game. (1)Rebounding and turnovers. To many second chances for them,we run when we rebound and running got us a 28 point lead. Turnovers werent horrible but always keeping them low is the goal.(2)Stop fouling. we basically gave them all their points by fouling 15 times in the second half,just stay with your man and stop fouling. Ride your man to the hoop and funnel him to dwight. (3)Control their bench. Its basically as thin as it gets,marbury,house,scalabrine and allen are basically all that played for doc off the bench. Marbury was killing AJ,house was getting open and scalabrine was finding ways to score also,that cant continue to happen because THEY ARE SCRUBS for pete sake.

    No matter what happens tonight, the Magic have stolen home-court advantage already.

    In the first half Monday, the Magic had a fantastic 14/3 assist/turnover ratio. In the second half, a very mediocre 6/10 assist/turnover ratio.

    Hopefully we see ball movement from the Magic like they did the first half in Game 1.
