I have no idea how this team was even in the game tonight.  They played horribly for most of the game with brief spurts of brilliance.  The Magic just played a little less bad and earned a key early season win.  

Some bullet points:

  • Doc tells Sheed to take fewer 3's and the very next game he goes 0-8.  With that said, most of them were good, open shots.
  • Sheed seemed to do all the other little things right.  It was that kind of night.
  • Perkins picking up two quick fouls in the 3rd were big but Howard never really took advantage.
  • Rondo sat for most of the 4th quarter.  Was Doc sending a message or did he just want Eddie's shooting on the floor?
  • I really like the little things that Marquis Daniels does on the floor.  He won't fill up a stat sheet, but he helps you win games.  That is when you aren't doing everything else to lose them.
  • KG seemed to tweak his knee early in the 4th but he looked alright after that.
  • Kept waiting for someone like Pierce or Ray or Rondo to take over the game and nobody did.
  • I really don't like Vince Carter.  Almost goes without saying, but I'm going to keep saying it.
  • We really need a more consistent effort on defense.  The offense will come and go, no big deal, but if we make stops more often, we win going away.
