    I'll be there tonight... Section 117R Row A!

    The Magic's 11 game winning streak with me in attendance will be put to the test, but I'm psyched for the game... GO MAGIC!

    If Carter and/or Pietrus can show up for the Magic tonight, that would be a big help for them.

    Wojnarowski may have a future in writing crime novels, but as a sports writer he stinks worse than the dead fish in water. His piece was all about making bold but cheap statements which my grandma can do better.

    The fact is that BOS can play another game with minimal pressure, and if they lose, they are going home trying to finish the series there. But then all the pressure move back on them because they cannot afford to lose that game in BOS. Additionally, as the series drags out, the wear and tear on the older team becomes more apparent. Therefore, if they lose tonight, which I expect to be the case, one may see things getting a bit easier for the Magic.

    Enjoy the game Mike, and make sure that your karma is at full strength.

    I think tonight is gonna be a tough game to win for the magic for a couple reasons. (1) The celtics won the first two games in orlando and are a very good road team,they have the mental advantage at this point in our building. (2) The celtics will adjust to our pick-and roll and make it tougher for jameer and dwight to be able to connect on lobs,which will take away from jameers ability to be a playmaker. If they are able to get back to slowing jameer's playmaking abilities (5 assists or under) we're in trouble. Dwight and jameer dominated game three and its no secret we go as they go,at the same time rondo and perkins never really got it going because of pretty good defense by jameer and dwight. Tonight we have to get that same defensive intensity,energy in transition and connection from jameer and dwight. The team has to play fast and push the ball for early offense,pushing the ball will free jameer from rondo and rashard from KG and get us more shots than them. Thats our only way to be successful,trying to go four quarters against their set defense isnt going to work.
