Except for some missed critical FTs, Turkoglu played a great game. He was the best Magic offensive player, but when I see the 2nd half collapse of Magics offense in the last Game 4, I feel that is the cause of loss more so than these later specific moments like missed FTs from multiple players, bad defensive close outs, missed shots, etc.
Doing a pick and roll with Turk is one of the Magics best plays, but all I was seeing in that 3rd and 4th was the Magic PGs bringing the ball up the floor, giving it to Turk at the top of key, and running to dissappear in a corner, effectively making a 4 on 5 situation. What happened to Jameer? Going from slicing up the Lakers defense in dribble penetration from the regular season games to being so invisible now. When Rafer Alston was attacking the paint all the time in the 1st half, the Lakers defense gets out of thier comfort level. Every teams defense gets uneasy when there's some driving and dribble penetration. How can the Lakers not defend a Turk pick and roll poorly when it happens every offensive possession. There are fewer passes, and the defense knows more or less what to expect from the most repeated play in Magic history! It makes it harder for the Magic frontcourt to score with all the defense on it. Can the PGs get some confidence and do something? Can SVG call plays for the PG to get them going and keep them involved all game? Because something was wrong with the Magic offense that last game, and it might have been over-using the Turk pick and roll play making the PGs spectators.
