Orlando is learning, quite the hard way, the nature of Indiana's beasts.
After David West torched them for 37 points and 20 rebounds in the first two games of the series, Magic Coach Stan Van Gundy threw everything he had at the Indiana power forward in Game 3. He opened the game with quick double-teams to give undersized defender Ryan Anderson as much help as possible, and...

A grumpy Stan Van Gundy vents to the media about David West's impact, the adjustment he needs to make, what Jameer Nelson needs to do to have an impact on this series and he talks about Orlando needing to improve on the offensive end.
I don’t like as many dunks as I am told I should; no breakaway dunks should ever make a Top 10 Plays. Give me a drive and jam with hands in the face, or a no-look pass alley-oop with a one-handed flush. Those require more skill and toughness than a very tall person merely jumping [...]
