Orlando won the shooting battle 45%-41.3% and dominated the backboards 54-38 with a few more looks at the basket and a few more long balls making a big difference on the scoreboard.

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
