The Magic's shooting is why they are in the Finals in the first place. Acting like their hot shooting is some kind of anomoly is pretty naive.

I wonder what Kobe fans would be saying if Lebron shot 5-10 from the ft line in a tight finals game and shot 3-10 from the field in the 2nd half.

Actually Lebron did do something like that and it costed the Cavs a game.

The Magics actually shot like 4 long 2-pointers with their feet barely touching the 3-point line. If you counted those as 3's, they would have done better than their average in 3-point shooting.

And if you count those 4 as threes it would be an 8 pt victory.

I would also be excited, because if it goes to 7 games, I would then stand a good chance at winning Lamar Doom's competition, which includes loads of fun little goodies.

Why am I not surprised that the biggest Kobe stan on this site, Fatal, posted in this thread?

And he brings up Lebron in an attempt to deflect attention from the piss-poor game his god played? Didn't see that one coming.

Nice work by the Magic! Keep it up….win the next one so that Laker fans’ cockiness can start waivering.

Some of my coworkers and I, in southern Cali, believe in A.B.L……..Anybody But the Lakers.

Get Pietrus more involved and good things happen. He had an awesome game, and honestly the Magic were oh so close to having a 2 to 1 game lead.

I'm pretty sure his real personality is his on court personality. He is always trying to run up the score against teams. You don't see guys like Lebron doing that, IE guys without the true hunger to kill the opposing team.

Eh, who cares?! Magic in 7! I can't stand the Lakers anymore...Kobe this, Kobe that, Lamar is underachieving, Pau is goofy, Bynum is shut down and Luke Walton is just not very good.

Check this blog out that I found. Hilarious. Pau Gasol will never escape the abuse...

I think the Lakers may be able to take solace in that in a game where they faced the hottest shooting team ever in an NBA FInals game, they had a chance to win and lost by 4.

I thought Kobe ran out of gas in the 4th, and was trying to do things his body wouldn't let him do. Tiredness also leads to mental mistakes, he committed more than his fair share last night.

Overall, if I'm a Lakers fan, I wouldn't be worried. Orlando cannot stop the Lakers offense. Just like the Denver series, it's whoever makes the least mistakes down the stretch.

Who predicted that? Many said L.A in 6.

Many also expected Orlando to take game 3 at home..it was expected.

I said before the series started L.A would win both home games, lose game 3, win game 4, lose game 5 and clinch back home for game 6.

I'm confident thats how it will play out.

What do you guys think Kobe will do in Game 4? He had a bad game and everyone is talking about it. So what does he do? You think he'll come out jacking up shots trying to score 50 and shut everyone up or will he try to be the facilitator, setting up his teamates.

Wow. I always thought the Lakers could win at least a couple of games ;~)

Honestly, some of the proclamations made in this place have no basis in reality.

Cut all the nonsense and just focus on the ISSUE.
