Sixers getting blitzed at the half

Philadelphia, PA - This game had trap written all over it and sure enough, the Sixers fell in.

Tony DiLeo should have come up with a simple game plan without Dwight Howard in the lineup.

Run the Magic off the 3-point line and drive the basketball on the offensive end.

For some reason, the Sixers thought it would be a good idea to give the game's most one-dimensional player, JJ Redick, and Rafer Alston all the easy looks they wanted from beyond the arc.

Meanwhile, Andre Iguodala and Willie Green were content to shoot jumpers that just weren't there.

The result? Magic lead 62-48 and shot 57.5 percent, including a ridiculous 66.7 percent from long range.

Rashard Lewis ate Thaddeus Young for lunch and Green was just awful in the first quarter.

Iguodala was a miserable 2-for-10 from the floor...
The Sixers were a minus-19 when young was on the floor...
Sixers outrebounded 19-15 and 6-5 on the offensive glass despite Howard's absence
Here's the Magic 3-point info: Redick 3-for-3, Alston 2-for-4, Turkoglu 1-for-1, Lewis 0-1.
