1. I mentioned this in the writer roundup, but let me expand on it for emphasis: Orlando's defense in the second half of Game 6 was unbelievable. Nobody takes me seriously when I say the Magic were the league's best defensive team in the regular season, because they don't scowl, preen, start fights or get on all fours to menace Jerryd Bayless, but watch the tape from last night and pay attention.
