The Magic will rely on Dwight Howard to get them back in this series. I have more of a feeling that he and the three point shooters will produce tonight. I think they'll play well. Just not sure who will win. Would give the edge to the Magic though could see Celts knocking them off again tonight. LIke the Celtics in the series for sure in five or six. Tonight's game at 7:30 on ESPN. Would love to see the Suns come back. Think they'll play a lot better tomorrow night. Both the Magic and Suns are going to make adjustments; they have to or they'll both get swept. Magic has to shoot the ball better from trifecta and Howard has to score inside. They were what 5-of-24 something like that from trifecta. I think Dwight Howard is capable of stepping up. He has in the past. Just don't know what you're going to get with him. One would think in a big game like tonight, he would elevate his game.
Suns, of course, have to shoot better from three and somehow slow down Kobe and inside guys. Suns were 5-of-24 from three also. They were 41 percent three-point shooting team in regular season and have been stellar in playoffs. They also have to stop Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol. Both playing lights out.
