I keep on saying it. You can't take NBA teams for granted. The same saying from the NFL: "any give sunday", applies to the nba every.single.game.

Yeah, tell that to the Lakers. Or most of the teams that played Orlando when Jameer is healthy. They are 5-4 with Jameer playing. Don't be so quick to write them off.

If you watched the fourth quarter, it's more of what the Lakers didn't do.

I watched two plays where the Lakers had five on four for defense. And they let up an easy dunk and a wide open shot. And they had the numbers.


I know there is no guarantees in sports, but a back to back for a bad team on the road, if this isn't an easy win, I don't know what is an easy win.

We can easily make that same mistake, and the way that we make that mistake is if we don't take them seriously and assume this will be a win. Just like the Lakers did.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you don't take games for granted. I can't even put my finger on what happened besides orlando making some tough shots in the stretch.

F'ing J.J. Redick, I think they made at least 4 threes in the 4th quarter.

I think the combination of Thompson and Curry not shooting great along with a lot of TO's, and points off of TO's is why we lost this one.

Orlando looks like a decent team in the East. If Vucevic plays well and Afflalo, Nelson and Reddick shoot well this team can be good.

I think there is no doubt they will make it into the playoffs in the East.

They won't. There are eight better teams in the conference.

I don't know, they play well as a team. Nelson is being a great leader for the team, and I think Afflalo is finding his spot on the team. Big Baby cost them some games by being selfish, but it seems that has been fixed. Vucevic is giving them good minutes at center spot, he played nice against Howard as well. I wouldn't be surprised if they make it. Especially if they continue to play good games.

Ezeli shoulda played more than 15min in this one. Big baby was givin us fits inside for a while. Magic probably playing better than they are, right after beating the Lakers, so we just caught 'em
while they're hot. But W's gotta beat these crappy teams if they wanna make the playoffs.
