Rashard Lewis: The Magic's Next Level

Some thoughts came to mind a few hours before game 2 of the Magic-Cavs series...

In order for the Magic to pull through in this series, consistent play out of Rashard Lewis is absolutely a must. This team cannot go anywhere unless Rashard is scoring 20 points a game. Lewis is the key, because of his silky-smooth stroke and ability to knock down clutch free-throws. His game is mostly from the outside, mainly beyond the arc.

That is the problem with Rashard. He has the ability to put the ball on the floor and drive to the hole as well as post up on the block, but more often than not he chooses to settle for the outside jumper. The Magic need his all around game in this Conference Finals if they expect to get by the Lebron-led Cavs. For the Magic's sake I hope Coach Stan Van Gundy realizes Lewis' contributions can get his team to the next level.

Peace, for now until later.
