Well, I would say the 76ers have a good chance at upsetting the Magic. Avery Johnson also said this last night on Sportscenter. I think with the bigs the 76ers have they can contain Howard easily with Dalembert, Evans, Ratiliff, etc.... I also think those 3 pointers the Magic have will be contained as well and I don't think they are comfortable either with Lewis and Hedo just recently being hurt.

I would say the Key matchup falls around the Small forward position, Iggy vs Hedo. Should be a fun matchup.

I say the magic win in 6, possibly even in 5

The sixers like to run, and that's just going to play in to the hands of the magic who could potentially blow some of these games wide open. I expect Dwight to come in focused playing like he did last year against the raptors. Iggy needs to play well for the sixers to have a chance, because he can at times be off with his shot although he usually fills out the rest of the stat sheet.

i say magic in 6. the sixers have contained dwight pretty well all season. but the 3's have rained down on us all season. things sixers need to focus on is making free throws knocking down the open 3 and gaurding the perimeter.

Howard also was guard by Chris Bosh and Rasho.
Not taking away his credit, but that just means that he owned a bunch of international scrawny big men. He's playing against men again in this series.

I don't think the 3's will rain down simply because Hedo and Shard have been injured in the last 2-3 games. I don't see the 3's being hit for them.

X-Factors for Both teams..

76ers: T. Young - Their team's best shooter, Efficient scorer, Can hurt the Magic easily

Magic: Courtney Lee - Rookie sleeper, pretty good defender, can score and shoot.

If Shard and Hedo are back healthly this series will be Magic or 4 or 5...can't see any other result. Sixers just aren't good enough to compete IMO

Texas is international now? Chris Bosh is clearly much more international than Samuel Dalembert, who is actually a Canadian citizen (the country where Bosh plays) and was born in Haiti.

Sixers in 4, Dwight will be Dalembert b!tch. They make the basket smaller during the playoff so if you shoot from the outside its harder to make it. Right OP?
