Default Re: *OFFICIAL* ORLANDO MAGIC game discussion thread. **including playoffs!

game preview:
Detroit at Orlando, 8PM ET -- The AP reports: The Orlando Magic have used a number of defenders on Detroit's Chauncey Billups, and none of them has been able to slow him down. Billups has 43 points and 19 assists in two games, taking advantage of mismatches, avoiding double teams and finding open teammates... Knowing Billups creates problems for his team, Magic coach Brian Hill has rotated Nelson, Carlos Arroyo, Keyon Dooling and Grant Hill onto the 6-foot-3, 202-pound point guard.
Hill started off Game 1 guarding Billups, but that left Nelson covering 6-7 shooting guard Richard Hamilton -- another mismatch. Nelson ended up on Billups for part of that game and eventually fouled out... The Magic have decided they need to be more physical with the Pistons. They want Dwight Howard, who missed eight free throws in the series opener and was sick in Game 2, to assert himself in the post. They want Grant Hill and Hedo Turkoglu to drive to the basket more frequently.
