1st game- Orlando had 9 threes
2nd game- Orlando had 15 threes (on 45%)
3rd game- Orlando had 11 threes (on 42%)
4th game- Orlando had 14 threes (on 60%)
When you have a 6'10" guy playing power forward (Rashard Lewis) who hit 41% from deep and 226 threes (3rd most in the league) and another 6'10" guy playing sf (Hedo) who knocks down shot after shot, it's scary. I haven't even gotten to the 21/14/2 guy in the middle who is only going to get better.
Philly just struggles to matchup with them. They won the season series last year 3-1 putting up 106 ppg against us. Don't underestimate Stan Van Gundy either. He's a great coach. 52 win team last season. Their team isn't going to get worse just because we got better.
