Magic will use the same game plan he used in beating Dominique Wilkins in the 1st rd, but I again feel that athletic players like Dr. J. will give him trouble.

Moses pulled a 1st round upset of Karl Malone and will have to pull off another big one to advance to the Elite 8. (Note: Whoever made the Olajuwon video, hates David Robinson)

  1. Magic got lucky getting by Dominique in my opinion, now he’s up against another athletic 2 guard with the Doctor. Dr. J is über athletic and crafty, but not the scorer that everyone thinks he was. He only averaged over 25 once after he left the up tempo ABA. That being said, Magic never averaged over 25, but I think his ball handling and strength gets him to the next round. Magic wins 15-13, but don’t expect him to go much further in this tourney…

    The Dream is a nightmare matchup for almost anyone in this tourney. He dominates Moses in nearly every facet of his game but Moses is relentless and makes the dream work for every basket. Hakeem has too much offense for Malone though and pulls away with the win 15-11.

  2. Magic barely made it by the far more athletic Dominique Wilkins in the 1st round and I don’t think he can get by Dr. J. in the 2nd. The Dr. will be able to drive at will and score easily. Dr. J Wins 15-11
    Malone pulled the upset to get to the 2nd round, but his tourney today. The Dream is too big, too strong and too quick for Moses to hang with 1-on-1. Hakeem Wins 15-10

  3. Magic- He can handle the rock and drive to the hole. I don’t see a leap from the foul line in the game to help Dr. J.
    Moses- Way too much grit for Hakeem. He will back him down all day.

  4. Magic beats Dr. J on pure creativity. I watched those highlights and Magic was breaking necks on every drive.
    Moses is done. Hakeem is the best defensive big man ever and Moses has no chance.
