Wasn't worried about this game, because it was obvious Howard was going to come out and try to tear these guys to shreds. With Afflalo looking to slow down Kobe, it was going to be up to Howard, and I was okay with that. Howard is a superstar...that's what superstars do.
However, one thing needs to be said: it was disgusting to see the Magic foul Howard so much, and send him to the line for a record 39 free throws. Why? Because they have the size (Vucevic) to try and defend him straight up, but chose not to.
Ultimately, it was to try and send a message. Vaughn had this idea that he could win a game with Howard shooting 40% or so from the line, and that every boo bird in the arena would eventually get to Dwight as he shot (and missed) these frees...but it backfired, and I'm so glad it did.
