    Reddick starts at 2 for them? I thought he didn't even play, and I thought Pietrus started at 2.

    This will be a tough game. I think it will come down to how Howard plays. If he puts up a lot of points (25+), it will be difficult to come out with a W.

    I'm a believer in let the start get his points, but don't let the roleplayers or sidekicks go nuts. We need them to shoot a low FG% and we'll be in good position to challenge them.

    JJ Redick = Redickulous

    Are the Magic show-casing JJ for Bird?

    Uh, yes. Trade is imminent, we can only pray.

    Just try to limit D12 and do not forget about all the others (lewis, turkoglu).
    we need a great D effort, just like against the celtics, than we'll be fine

    I read somewhere where he was getting time the last couple of games or so.

    I'm hoping he doesn't have a career game tonight and Bird falls in love.

    I would do Tinsley for JJ, though. That's about it.

    If J.J. Redick works really, really hard, he could one day become a poor man's Feed Hoiberg.

    Fortunately, the salaries don't match. Bird isn't that unintelligent to fall in love with someone who is a one trick pony that can't guard his own shadow. Let Otis Smith keep his fantastic pick! Let's see Redick guard Quis and Jack.

    I'm not as worried with Howard with Rasho and Foster defending him. He'll get his points...but he'll have to work for them.

    I'm more concerned about Rashard Lewis and Hedo.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I'm not convinced its Dwight we need to worry about. He is gonna get it done either way, I say we focus on Turkoglu, he will be the kicker to us winning or losing this one. We have to keep him in check.

    EDIT: lol, on the same page with you CableKC

    I'm afraid that Dwight watched the film of Amare against the Pacers when he scored 49. Turk is the least of my concerns and Lewis really hasn't had his A game this year.

    Amare was getting a lot of jumpers too and Dwight isn't really capable of that. Dwight isn't near the free throw shooter Amare is, so I say if he's under the basket about to go up, just foul him immediately and make him earn it.

    I think Marquis and Danny can do a good job defensively on Turk and Lewis.

    I think our biggest concern would be if our offense goes stale again and we stop running it how we're supposed to. We need to be aggresive from the start.

    We can win this game.

    Quis should pressure Nelson and TJ should guard Reddick. If someone can keep Howard off the rim, we have a shot.

    This is the Pacers we're talking about......you don't have to have your A-Game on in order to light us up from the outside.

    Keep Howard off the rim? Good luck with that.....

    I don't mind throwing Roy out there....but I can see 3 quick fouls against Howard and see him sit for the rest of the game.

    Rasho can take care of Howard.

    The one bad thing about League Pass Broadband is the lack of a real pre-game program.

    Also the same ads being played OVER AND OVER.

    Yes, those two things are the one bad thing about League Pass Broadband.

    Fixed. Redick started in place of Pietrus in the Magic's last game due to injury. I just saw a report that says that Pietrus will be able to play tonight, I assume as a starter.
