i give a B even though they lost because after that first quarter i thought they was gonna get blown out but the magic came back and made it a game up until the last couple minutes. and why did bass not play i thought this was why they brought him in, for games like this. howard cant take on shaq, ilgauskas and verajao by himself he needed to put in gortat more and bass to bang with the bigs of cleveland. ryan anderson is a good player but he is soft and plays no D. i bet if he would have put bass in, verajao and that hickson guy would not have made all them points.
When are they going to get a true point and get rid of the over paid wanna be Nelson. Williams out plays him every night.
I am resigned to a dumb coach with more talent than he knows what to do with. When does a back stay a back up even when he outplays the "starter". In Orlando under Van Gundy! JJ out played Vince, J Will outplayed Nelson. Who was in the game at crunch time? You guessed!, Nelson and Vince.
I voted an F, but then I remembered that we were tied at 96 and all of a sudden it was 105-96 (or close), so I'm changing my vote to oh, G!The refs were absolutely horrible for both teams.
Actually B+ For second back to back in five days, thought the Magic showed genuine teamwork and talent during loss. DH does need to work on avoiding needless fouls, but can see a team that is finally becoming a cohesive unit making a real run in the playoffs...including against Cleveland.
