Biedrins played the best defense on Howard. I would argue that he is our best post defender, better than Kwame was, he just played too little for some reason.

The Warriors are going to have to play very solid to keep this lead against Howard and all the good 3 shooters the Magic have. When Biedrins is out you can tell that they just want to get the ball into Howard. He could go off tonight if they're not careful. Might as well let him score though if it means guarding their 3 shooters all night.

They already have twice as many FT attempts. Though, it is understandable cause of all of those intentional fouls on Dwight.

Monta is showcasing his skills right now. I really think his value is almost as high as it can get right now. I like him but he probably needs to be moved soon.

I have to say, picking up Nate Robinson was a great move. He is finally showing his potential by playing in a fast-paced offense as a starter.

Bullshit call on Monta, this is how they end up losing games like this, dumb NBA refs that want to be contradictory and flamboyant.

What call? Can't remember anything that bad that happened, at the moment.

It was the charging call at midcourt, his feet weren't even close to stationary.

I think the ref just called it because he wanted to do the "contrarian charge call" that always gets the crowd riled up.

At the end of the half we started missing, and Magic hit a few shots...killing ourselves again. That defense that was good started playing soft on Dwight. Making fouls and letting him attempt decent shots along.

Currently the fouls and FT differences are ridiculous.

How can the refs think this is a fairly called game, even with Dwight Howard altering things.

I think it was McGuire that got the ball there and have been called for the charge, not Ellis. Might be wrong, but that's what I remember and why I couldn't remember bad call on Ellis. ::lol:


Anyway, we are lucky to be up by 4 at this point. Pathetic finish of the 2nd quarter. Jackson playing smalls for too long even though Dwight was in the game...that's why we lost the advantage we had in rebounds, and why every ball went to Dwight when Orlando was on offense.
