Cohen 8-Ball: Magic's Main Competitors for Playoff Spot
Cohen's Analysis: It would only seem rational to believe that the injury to Andrew Bynum and his ambiguous return date will deny the Sixers from advancing to the playoffs. However, Jrue Holiday is evolving into a potential All-Star and Philadelphia has exceeded expectations over the first month of the season. However, it has had a cupcake schedule to date and one would assume eventually the Sixers will be desperate for Bynum's presence. If he doesn't come back by February or is merely ineffective, logic would insinuate the Magic would have a better chance to qualify.
