76ers-Magic Yesterday

Just one thought:

The 76ers put 37 year-old reserve forward Donyell Marshall into the game late in the fourth quarter. The guy all but has a neon sign on his forehead that exclaims: "I am going to shoot the three."

So what happens? Late in the game, Orlando fails to guard Marshall (well enough), and he hits a three.

NBA teams have something like 5 assistant coaches sitting on the bench. Shouldn't three of them have been screaming to the guy assigned to Marshall that he should stay closer to him than Epcot is to Magic Kingdom?

Dwight Howard might sell tickets, but the Magic have to tighten up their defense to get closer to a championship.
