NBA Finals Game 2 preview

The Magic have had two days to dissect their blowout loss to the Lakers in Game 1 and also to look at game film.

This quote from the Yahoo! game preview from Stan Van Gundy says it all:

“We’ve been through it,” said Van Gundy, who plans to keep his rotations intact for Game 2. “As the playoffs have gone on, I’m given them history lessons of just about anything that can happen in the playoffs, people being blown out at times. All of us were upset with our performances the other night; I wasn’t happy with mine, I don’t think they were happy with theirs. We’re anxious to get back at it.”

The Magic are 6 1/2 point underdogs.

Here is the complete game preview from Yahoo! Sports.

The game starts an hour earlier than Game 1 at 8 PM Eastern on ABC.

    I know the Magic are really anxious to redeem themselves after their Game 1 performance, and I'm looking forward to seeing them do so.

    Yea me too mike. Couple things. (1)Change the way we play. Play fast and everybody get up shots in transition,make kobe feel like he cant win by out-scoring his help. In game one trevor ariza took 3 shots i beleive,he needs to be shooting the ball 15 times. I'd like to see bynum and odom get alot more shots too so if that means doubling kobe then so be it. (2)Make them know we're here on the defensive end. The magic need to up the defensive intensity and play everything straight up,no more giving up dunks to bynum and gasol in the paint. The lakers break your defense down with good ball movement/passing,if the magic are gonna compete the game has to look harder for guys like fisher,bryant and gasol.
