First half observations:

- The defense is practically non-existant. Everyone looks like they're just going through the motions.
- Bender almost looks like another JO out there, albeit faster and less powerful. Once he starts hitting his shots... :eek:
- The Magic, especially Turkoglu, are shooting way over their heads.

We'd better pull it together. No reason to lose this one tonight.

This is Reggie's moment...he likes to go on free-throw line with no time left on the clock...how in the hell did Reggie miss a free-throw...was he actually nervous???? He has missed some ft's recently....my mind is going crazy how does Reggie miss a free-throw :( ...for some reason I had a bad feeling that was going to miss...

Ron makes our defense elite.....without Ron our defense sucks.

Oh well. I went to my computer after the game and there was a black screen instead of the game. The video cable had somehow come out of its socket some time durring the second half so no video on this one. If that had been a dramatic victory I would be kicking myself right now.

It has sucked since Ron has been gone...there is no question about how much weaker we are without Ron. Why deny the truth?

That's dumb. Our D WAS good last night, that was my point. S-A-R-C-A-S-M was used in the previous post I made. Our D was fine last night. It was flat tonight. We were tired and sluggish off of a back to back and a 1/2 as good opponent.
