Love them or hate them, at least the Celtics make for an exciting playoffs. Now let's see if the Rockets can keep it up.

I would give the Celtics credit, but the Magic seem to do regularly.

I see the Magic up by ten, and all I can think is that the Celtics have them right where they want them.


Also, it annoys the hell out of me that Garnett talks trash from the bench. He does his little walking fingers thing a lot. Unless you can back it up right then and there, don't talk.

There is plenty of blame to go around. Redick in there late...is freaking stupid. Makes no sense what so ever. And our team just clammed up at the end. Rashard took all of one shot in the quarter and they played scared when it got close. This series is over.

This one was the bag and they blew it...again.

Out of a timeout you have a first, second, third, fourth option to make a pass. Three guys couldn't get open, partly because of defense, but it must have been a bad play. C'mon, there's no way in hell Howard should get that ball.
You're assuming. The players didn't even know what they were doing.

Missing the last 8 shots in the game -- tell me how SVG did that? How Does SVG start jacking up 3's instead of driving to the hoop? How does SVG cause a defense that was playing great to collapse?

It's a straight cop out. The Magic players are mentally weak.

Ok but what did Redick do? did he give up easy points to Allen? No so who cares, it wasn't a problem.

The ball should have gone to Shard every possession down the stretch.

Man, i'm not giving you a cop out. I'm giving you another reason as to why your team is failing when they should have won this series already. You already know how mentally weak your team us, and how they lack a hell of a lot of execution.

Again, why don't the players know what they were doing? That's all on the coach. You can't say that the players on the floor don't know what the hell they're doing and then say that the coach isn't to blame.

It's not all SVG...and if you watched the Magic play in the regular season, you would see how great he really is. Maybe he does get nervous in the playoffs. There is certainly evidence to support this but, he is still a great coach and this is something that he can overcome. Even if he makes **** decisions every once in a while, he has proven how good he is. I have faith in him.

I see what you're saying, i really do, but what does it matter if he makes great coaching decisions during the regular season, if he is part of the reason why they collapse in the playoffs?

Hah KG has always been extremely emotional. When he was with Minnesota he 1) never got to watch his team succeed from the bench and 2) pretty much never made it out of the first round of the playoffs. Love him or hate him (and he's always been a guy that has rubbed a lot of guys the wrong way), that's who he is.

I have faith in him. It's not like it's something that he couldnt overcome if it really does effect him.

Orlando looks scared out there down the stretch and I dont think it's a trickle down effect completely. They play scared when the game starts to tighten up.

A humble guy? Sorry, but I used to love KG in Minnesota and he was most definitely not humble. He's always been this way. Probably just the first time you've seen him on a consistent basis besides '02.

Avery Johnson is the Hornets. In 2010.
I actually like Avery Johnson a lot as a coach and think the Mavs were dumb for dumping him.

I just don't think SVG has done anything wrong. He made us a top 3 defensive team in the league, he puts the players in position to make plays.

He shouldn't be criticized for guys taking ridiculously stupid shots down the stretch. Obviously he didn't want them to take those.

Im 100% positive SVG didn't say "you know what guys, we've been driving on them all game and it's been working so lets stop doing that now"

I mean, it's the team. Now way around it. the bottom line is this

The team is playing not to lose with a lead and nobody wants to step up. Everyone is worried about missing a shot.

You can say this is from the coach, but I looked at SVG and saw him spinning his arm in a motion signaling to keep pushing the pace and keep raising the tempo -- The team instead settled into a half court game and took bad shots. I don't know what else the guy can do other than put a uniform on.

Orlando looks scared out there down the stretch and I dont think it's a trickle down effect completely. They play scared when the game starts to tighten up.
I think it does have a effect nonetheless, it's really in the eyes of the beholder as to how much you feel it hinders the team.

It seems like Orlando can never come up with a clutch play when it counts the most. That swipe away after the Allen miss with 10 or so seconds left is a prime example. When there is only one guy from the other team in the area, you should be able to come down with that rebound.

I guess it's because in Minnesota he never had anything to talk smack about. Seriously, that ring on his finger makes him feel like he can talk **** to anyone. I hate him.

One thing I do know is that Hedo has got to go....

Beyond all of the other reasons I've given for not liking the guy -- This team is not going to change unless the players change.

The Magic blog I read is called "Third Quarter Collapse" because we used to get big leads in the first half and squander them away in the 3rd quarter.

The only difference this year is that we last until the 4th qtr before we collapse.

Shard is great when used correctly, Dwight and Nelson are center pieces, Lee looks to have a bright future, Pietrus and Gortat are good guys to have coming off of the bench. I also like Battie as the vet leader, but wouldn't mind losing him.

IMO Hedo, JJ, AJ should all pack their bags. It's time to churn the roster a little bit.

If Otis Smith is smart, he will not overpay Hedo. Instead he will add a veteran player with championship experience who works within the scheme and can help develop Howard's post game, not to mention be that piece who can help a team in the playoffs -- Rasheed Wallace baby.

Bring Sheed to Orlando. Perfect fit. He's friends with Howard, he can help develop his post game, he'll play tough for a contender, he can shoot 3's, he's used to playing for a defensive minded team.

Someone tell me how this isn't the perfect FA fit?

Speaking of KG, I forgot to ask during the game, but what's that taunt he does where he does the "legs" walking on his hand? I never got that, but he's done it a few times.

That's still on him, though. What good is he as the teams coach if they aren't paying any attention to him?

I can see them giving SVG another year though, if they can count on Jameer Nelson successfully returning from his injury. Who knows how they'd be doing in the Playoffs if they had Nelson running the show.

Of course, this all goes out the door if Billy Donovan wants the coaching spot.
