With losses against the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat I think Orlando Magic will begin to fold and will start to on a lossing streak soon they just haven't looked good since that win over the Los Angeles Lakers. They just always seem to struggling in the middle quarters which makes it hard for them to make a fight back as they are so far behind. They getting many points off the bench which other teams seem to be able to do maybe they need to have a look at this problem in the offseason to solve the problem.

They have a two day break so hopefully that refreshes them and turns around the two game lossing streak. There next game is against the Pacers which they should win although in this form at the moment there are some doubts.

Do you guys think they will get back on track or will this be another "Boston Celtic Run"?
What are your thoughts on the Orlando Magic?
Do they need a good quality benchman?

and yeah,they will lose again and go on a terrible lossing streak just like the Boston Celtics were on during the mid season! But they should be able to turn around it with the names of Dwight Howard etc...... Watch they will be back

just like celtics!

Well, not really. They will still maintain being title contenders and top 5 in the league. I agree they will go on a losing streak. Basketball games are about exchanging streaks, shouldn't basketball seasons be about exchanging streaks?

Well I always like consistently in my teams but they just cant avoid hiding from a terrible run of form. If a team is not preforming they will just get punished, it takes 5 players on a court to win a game not 1. The team has to be gelling to be able to winning which for some reason the Magic aren't.

Who do you think will lift them again?

Possibly it will be Dwight Howard but I believe it will just take a quarter to bring back their form.

I agreee with you SlamDunk on the whole it takes 5 players not 1. But the Magic are using all 5 players the need to use. Mickael Pietrus is injured now so you can't count him now.

Nelson- Having a great year, should be an All-Star

Pietrus- Huge part of their success, big part when nobody knew him

Turkuglo- I have to say I am a little disappointed in him this year as many people expected an All-Star season.

Lewis- Big season for him this year, has lived up to his expectations a playing PF

Howard- Don't really need to say anything, you know, i will just keep going on and on

Oh i have to say Nelson and Turkuglo are in great form at the moment and have surprised me abit. The Orlando Magic have a strong team and it will be interesting to see what they do in the off season.

Imo Hedo has had a great year but you have your opinion Smile

Well the Orlando are no team of the future as they are one of the best teams now. But yes they look like they have some good young named players that will be very interesting to see what happens in teh coming years.

As far as I see the Bobcats, Thunder and the Bucks look like the teams of the future, all those teams hold some very young and good players that all look like they might put on a all star jersey. Out of those clubs the Thunder look like they will be title contenders in the next years and Kevin Durant will lead them there!

Ya. But you have to admit, Dwight is a little young. I wasn't talking about 5-10 years future, just a few years. Hedo and Rashard are the only "old" guys in the MAIN rotation, so, ya.

Yeah the Magic have no depth at the bench and No I don't think that they will go on a losing streak cause they have a Great starting lineup.....But for the past few games their defense has been lazy and sloppy so they better get back on track

Ya, Dwight Howard can't carry the team that easily because there are other great players on the team (Turkuglo, Lewis, Pietrus (injured), Nelson)

Of course they do not have a good bench at all.

Dwight howard doesn't have to lead the team, he just has to be part of it.
Like in baseball. The Yankees. Derek Jeter (in this case Nelson, Turkuglo, Lewis) make the team much better and Alex Rodrigeuz (in this case Dwight Howard) just does what he does to win.

Yes they have. I can see them in the Eastern Conference Finals, possibely the NBA FInals this year. They have been on tempo the whole year. I don't see them losing many games in a streak.

Well they did it early on in the year so you will never know but it would take a lot of good teams to put them back on a lossing streak. As far as their bench goes yes i agree definitely not as strong as many teams but they are still doing the job atm. And their starting side is one of the top teams behind the likes of the Celtics and Cavs. I cant say the Lakers have a better team than the Magic due to Kobe Bryant is the main contributer to the side.

Yes, I agree with the Magic are a better team than the Lakers. Kobe is doing all the work. But as some Lakers fans might say, Dwight Howard is doing all the work for the Magic. I wouldn't think so. Howard is averaging only 20 points per game. He has most rebounds and most blocks, as well as some steals now and then. He is not the contributer in scoring or assists, as Kobe is the best in almost all categories for the Lakers.
