Let me start by saying that I believe the world is against the magic, with horrible officiating, league office (Stern) threatening our coaches for speaking their minds, and now a terrible schedule.
What I mean, is I am confused why Miami gets to play a team after Orlando did on a back to back 50% of the time, including today's game against Cleveland. Take this out another week, the first 5 weeks of the season, Miami will have 8 homes games, with 5 of those opponents playing at Orlando the night before. How many have Orlando gotten, none. In fact, I believe that Toronto was the only team we have played that had played the night before, as did Orlando, on Toronto's court. I have not gone any further to see if this reverses, just tired of watching Miami beat up on a team after we played them the day before and wanted to comment on it, however, if you have the time, by all means, see how it pans out the rest of the season.
Now some might say, it doesn't matter, teams play just as well the second day as the first, and sure somebody has the statistics to prove that a back to back makes no difference, but common sense dictates that on a back to back, the team playing the second day is tired compared to the one that has rested, especially on the road. With my relative small sample of watching the Magic, we typically lose because of lack of energy on a back to back.
So I ask the league, why is it that you have the defending Champions having it so easy at home, with the visiting team coming off a back to back so often?
Feel free to squash my conspiracy theory
