The regular season means nothing. We were 4-0 against the Celtics and 1-3 against the Knicks. The key here is that Vince Carter is a garbage playoff player. Dwight Howard has played like ish in the playoffs and the Magic have no answer for Josh Smith or Jamal Crawford. All the Hawks have to do is slow down Nelson and this series is winnable.

I love how fans of teams with 10 wins can say that my squad has no chance. Your team isn't even good enough for you to be in this thread.

Mike Bibby cannot stop Jameer Nelson, Pietrus and Barnes can conceivably cover Johnson and Crawford both. Rashard also pulls Smith away from the paint on defense. I dunno how much that helps though.

The Magic will die by the 3. They are like a squad with 12 Sheeds. We are not the Bobcats. The Cats couldn't take advantage offensively. The difference will be Al (Bawse) Horford. Horford's ability to knock down the midrange jumper will force Howard to come away from the basket. Also, watching Reddick trying to defend Crawford will be the funniest thing since Sanford and Son.

What about the fact that Howard crushes Horford head to head? it didn't seem to stop him from getting all those boards and blocks in the reg. season

Horford is a better player at this point in the season. He was probably our most consistent player in the first round.

So, let me get this right. Only fans of Play-Off teams have a right to comment on Play-Off games?

It's ironic though you posting here, given the board rules dictate you must have a brain before you can post on this here message board. C'est la vie.

They might die by the 3, but they also sure as hell can live by it...
