The Magic have themslves to blame for losing this series. For the 6 games when Barnes was in without Redick against Rondo, Ray Allen and Pierce (RAP) the Magic were down 57 points in 90 minutes. When Redick was in and Barnes out against RAP the Magic were +19 points in 61 minutes, Game 6 was no different: Barnes in against RAR -9 points in 16 minutes, Redick in +3 points in 15 minutes. This was obvious after 2 games:
- Game 1 Redick in +3, Barnes in -9 against RAP
- Game 2 Redick in +10, Barnes in -13 against RAP.
