-----------------------------------

I expect Orlando to bow out gracefully in 4 games. After their sweep the question will be who stays in Orlando? SVG? or Dwight? Its gonna be a rough long offseason for Magic fans.

Not going to lie, haven't seen much Pacer basketball this year but I do know the loss of Howard will be big for Orlando. That's not to say they were playing that well with him.

I got Pacers in this one. After seeing them play really well last year vs the Bulls I am sure they will bring the same energy.

Pacers are legit. They got an athletic fast young team that is pretty deep. It's good to see them finally turn it around after years and years of sucking in the 2000's. Their playoff appearance last year and #3 seed this year show you they're on the right track.

Pacers in 5. Without Howard, the magic will rely to much on the 3 ball as their inside game is weak now.
Stan Van is fired immediately after this series

Its actually really surprising how successfully the Pacers built their team without high picks or big free agents. Danny Granger, Hibbert, Paul George were all mid 1st round picks, while Collison and George Hill were both traded for. You dont see many teams pull that off successfully

The Pacers are the team we need to emulate...them or OKC. The Pacers sucked for years, pretty much 2000-2010, but Larry Bird stuck with his plan and got the team on track. I see us going the same way, but if we can get a squad like this Pacers squad, it'll be worth it.

I'm going with the Magic. They have more playoff experience, many underrated players and Van Gundy is a better coach than people give him credit for.

Series is now tied 1-1. It seems these Magic came to play. Big Baby Davis has stepped up admirably at the center position in Dwight's absence. Stan Van's gang has stolen homecourt, so this young Pacers squad will have to win in Orlando if they want to take the series.

Pacers need to rely more on David West. He's been playoff tested before. The magic didn't lay down like I expected...I can see this going to 6 or 7 and being a tough 6 or 7 games

Pacers blowing the Magic out at home by 20 late in the 4th. Looks like they will steal homecourt back and have taken control of this series.

Roy Hibbert is getting it done today. This young man has transformed himself from raw prospect to a legitimate all star big man. 7 footers that are skilled at center are like dinosaurs in today's NBA, near extinct. Georgetown continues the "big man" tradition.
