Opening Night: November 4th

Sacramento Kings @ Orlando Magic
Lineups:
Vlade Divac - Drew Gooden
Chris Webber - Juwan Howard
Predrag Stojakovic - Grant Hill
Doug Christie - Tracy McGrady
Mike Bibby - Tyronn Lue

Quarter 1 Score: 28-17 Kings
Notes: Kings started off on a 12-2 run we battle back to bring it within one by the Kings go on a run and were down 11. Gordan Giricek in 7 minutes had 4 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist.

Quarter 2 Score: 42-39 Kings
Notes: We start off better and cut the lead to just 6 early, Also got Chris Webber in foul trouble with 3, just over halfway through the 2nd quarter. Outscored them 22-14 to cut the lead a bit. Howard with 10 and 6 led the way

Quarter 3 Score: 63-62 Magic
Notes: Chris Webber picks up his fourth foul a little over halfway through the 3rd. If we can keep up the defensive efforts we should be able to pull this one out. McGrady is bound for a breakout quarter as he only has 8 points 4 boards and 3 assists. Howard continues to lead the way with 19 points and 9 rebounds. We are now winning the rebounds battle by +4.

Quarter 4 Score: 85-83 Magic
Notes: Webber gets his 5th with 6:55 left to go. Rested McGrady until the 6 minute mark as Doug Christie is starting to get tired. We pulled this one off in the winding minutes as McGrady assisted to Grant Hill for the lead with 20 seconds left, Peja missing the last chance bucket to tie it up.

Game Notes: Hard fought victory, Howard was a nice surprise with 21 points and 11 rebounds in 28 minutes of play, Grant Hill with 11 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists, McGrady added 10, 5 boards, and 6 assists.

Trade News:
Orlando Magic Trade:
Grant Hill
Keith Bogans
2005 First Round Pick

Miami Heat Trade:
Lamar Odom
Caron Butler
Bimbo Coles

Grant Hill was getting older, and I knew I had to eventually ship him out, Grabbing back 23 year old Lamar Odom and 23 year old Caron Butler was a solid deal to me. Bogans was seemingly not going to develop well sitting behind Tracy and Gordon. Bimbo Coles was just a filler but nice to add a third PG.

November 5th, 2003
1-0 Magic Vs 0-0 Pistons
Lineups:
C: Drew Gooden - Ben Wallace
PF: Juwon Howard - Darko Milicic
SF: Lamar Odom - Richard Hamilton
SG: Tracy McGrady - Bob Sura
PG: Tyronn Lue - Chauncey Billups

Quarter 1: 35 - 19 Magic
Notes: Great start! T-Mac going ham with 13 points including 3/3 from downtown. Howard has added a nice scoring bunch with 9 in the first. Outrebounding the Pistons 15-8.

Quarter 2: 69-52 Magic
Notes: McGrady's performance continues. 20 points and 7 rebounds. Howard with 13 and Williams with 11. Need to play defense though as they are heating up.

Quarter 3: 90-67 Magic
Notes: Much better defensively. Only giving up 13 ponts and we extend our lead to 23. Caron Butler having silently stong first game with us, 10 points 4 rebounds 5/6 from the field.

Quarter 4: 108-85
Notes: Pulled the starters with 9 minutes to go. Trying to see what we can do without them. We were about to continue to score against their starters. Easy win against a tough team. McGrady had 22 and 8 and sat the entire 4th and still got POTG honors.
