Yes, it's finally playoff time for the Orlando Magic. They drew the Philadelphia 76ers, a team against which they match-up favorably and, by all accounts, should have little trouble dispatching. But if the Chicago Bulls' upset of the Boston Celtics yesterday taught us anything, it's that nothing in the playoffs is a guarantee. Orlando can hardly afford a letdown, which one must concede is a possibility, considering how poorly they played to close-out the regular season. Adding to that possibility is the fact that Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu, their second- and third- best available players, are recovering from nagging injuries which caused them to miss the final 3 and 2 games of the season, respectively.

There's not much left to be said that hasn't been said elsewhere, so I'll end this preview here. Tip's at 5:30, which one weird start time, don't you think? Go Magic.
