08:13 AM ET 05.03 | Stan Van Gundy isn't left with many options in what could already be an 0-3 series hole. [They] try to put Ryan Anderson on David West. West either eats him alive or the Magic are forced to double team, opening up the perimeter and allowing the Pacers to shoot 53 percent in the first half. Meanwhile, Anderson is reduced to an offensive cipher, worn down by West's physicality, his game diminished by the lack of an Orlando low-post presence. "He wasn't good again," Van Gundy said simply. So they come out in the second half, put Glen "Big Baby" Davis on West and place Anderson on Roy Hibbert. That's a signal to Hibbert to dominate, and he did that against Anderson, forcing the Magic to put Anderson back on West.

I know you people think the Knicks are ghost already.......guess what?......we don't!

I thought without Howard that they'd be swept but you never know in the playoffs.

I was surprised by Ryan Anderson's game yesterday. I thought he was going to deliver a whole lot more!
