    Espn has reported she'll sing again. That little girl is awesome! Everytime i see the replay it pumps me up all over again and it has nothing to do with basketball. I know she doesnt understand what those words really mean but boy she sells it well. When she pumps her fist and arm near the end and hits that high note i just get chills.

    It's great to be in Orlando during this very exciting time!

    I'm going to try to score a ticket for Game 5, but in the meantime I'm really psyched for the game tonight too, and can't wait until it comes on!

    Couple things. (1) RA has to keep winning the PG match-up. If they leave him open he has to make them pay as well as push the tempo and attack in transition. Limiting turnovers and staying aggressive is always the goal for skip. (2)Dwight has to attack bynum and gasol offensively. Be a force that cant be stopped and make the lakers start searching for answer's. Make them double so our perimeter guys get good looks,or beat one-on-one coverage. (3)Rashard has to do a better job on gasol. Push him out further and make the guy feel you,he's getting all his points in the paint and he's a finesse player. Gotta be tougher down low and if i were SVG i would use battie a just a tad bit more (if he's taking good shots offensively of course). I'd also like to see jameer get himself going a little bit,he seems slow and he's not aggressive at all. Hopefully he's playing himself back into shape and he'll start being a little more aggressive with his dribble to create his own shot,stop being afraid of contact and challenge somebody at the hoop and get to the line.

    I agree with you assesment Big.

    The thing that worries me about Jameer though, is, he went from the injured list to game one of the NBA Finals. Sort of like jumping from the freezer into the frying pan. After missing the last half or the regular season, then not being on the floor as the Magic scratched and clawed their way through the playoffs, I'm wondering if he knows the sort of intensity and struggle it took for the team to make it this far. Yes, he was with the team the whole time through the playoffs, but he wasn't actually on the floor. The playoffs are completely different from the regular season and the finals are even more intense. I know if anyone can adapt on the fly, it's Jameer. And I love seeing him out there with the team, I just hope he can get where he needs to be in such a short time to really help the team.

    It is official, Van Gundy has proven that he is not a championship coach and had no business coaching the Magic. To play Nelson the entire 4th quarter and then the overtime proves he does not know what he is doing. Nelson single handedly gave the game a way by his lack of defensive hustle and inability to make things happen. This is a shame that such a great year is being blown by the idiot decisions of the coach.

    All I have to say is..Why Nelson? Alston was on fire in the first and 2nd quarter. WOW..then Nelson came in..WHY? Idiots...now we need to win the next four games? what with Nelson starting? hmm....Van Gundy needs to re-think his decisions, leave Nelson on the bench. Seriously.

    15 missed free throws and 18 turnovers is the story of the game for the Magic.

    If the Magic don't miss 7 FTs in the fourth quarter (mainly Turk and D12), this game is won in regulation by the Magic.

    It's a shame.

    Freethrows is an excuse. The game was lost on the defensive end,fisher cannot be allowed to come down set up and launch a three to tie the game. Bottome line. Freethrows are missed throughout the whole game not just the fourth quarter and even with dwight missing two with 11 seconds left we still had a three point lead. Horrible close out defense lost that game and anonymous is right,SVG changing what we've done all year at this crucial time magnifies his coaching decision's and boy were they bad. Mainly jameer finishing the game!

    In a game like this, there are so many things you can point at as to why the Magic lost.

    Big Figure is right; missed free throws and turnovers by the Magic are only part of the story.
