The "rest versus rust" argument is a tiresome one, but the Magic certainly looked rusty in Game One. That said, the difference between the defenses of the Hawks and the Celtics may have been a bigger factor in Game One than the Magic's lengthy time off.
Either way, it took the Magic a while to start rolling, just look at their points by quarter: 14-18-26-30.
The Magic finally showed the firepower necessary to regain control of the series, but they will need to be firing on all cylinders to knock off a Celtics team that is deeper and better than almost anyone thought. (Sheed Sighting!)

We can be sure he'll have others, but here are 5 adjustments that Van Gundy MUST make if the Magic are to get back to the NBA Finals.
