Prediction

- 97
- 103




This will be our first true test to see where we are right now as a team. No offense to the Bucks, Clippers, Thunder and Bulls, but if we can compete with the Magic it will speak volumes in my opinion.

Close game, but in the end we'll likely lose a close one to the Magic.

Predict and discuss guys.

Bargs is gonna shut down D12 and score 30 points, can't stop his perimeter game
Marion will stop Turkey glue
Bosh will have a field day on Lewis
Caldy will get about 16 assists

the overconfidence is astounding. Remember last year when we thought this was a great matchup for us in the playoffs?

We beat ORL before without JO & Jose..... now we actually have a roster that matches up with them MUCH better than any time before.

And there's still no Nelson to penetrate our D.. which is good.

I wouldn't be surprised if we won.

Control Hedo & Lewis and we're fine. And please for the love of God let's not give up 384629482564 open 3s.

I hope we do the right thing and attack Howard and try to get him in foul trouble early.

OR

We can let Bargs pick up 3 fouls in the first quarter and kiss the game goodbye.

We match up decent with ORL, but really it all depends on what kind of start we get off to. ORL beats a lot of teams down in the 1st and they cant come back afterward because their D is surprisingly good.

Hands up on the post entry feed boys!!! Dont let Howard get the easy passes 2 feet away from the bucket and youll have a shot!

Andrea and Jose are going to have to be huge because we rarely get any run outs on the road. Halfcourt shooting will be huge.

Outrebounded will be the biggest problem.

but if Joey G, Bosh and pops can help shut down the beast that is Dwight, then we might actually get this.
3 pointers can last for so long.

I wonder how Dwight will play. JO totally shut him down early in the schedule, but no more Jermaine. I see Dwight getting an easy 20 and 15.

AB wont get howard in foul trouble, howard will get AB in foul trouble, look for them to pound it inside early and often.

I have a feeling... Bargs is going to keep Dwight in check... Calderon will drive alot, Ukic will have a big game and then Raptors will continue their hot streak when it really doesn't matter

The Raps should look better than they have in many games this year, but Orlando is a vastly superior team and should put the boots to 'em.

I don't think Jose will drive because he will have the NBA's leading shot blocker waiting for him in the paint.
