While the NBA is busy hyping up the Kobe v. LeBron thing, it's becoming increasingly obvious that the Magic are going to wipe Cleveland's :censored: on the floor. Being a big Magic fan that has his Dad make me seat right next to the cheerleaders, I'm biased, but seriously, let's look at the math. Magic has won two games and Cleveland has won one(with a close, slightly lucky shot). When I saw Cleveland in Game 3 I saw a 15 year weight lifter trying to beat a 22 year weight lifter. Once the Magic get ahead, they can't do anything, no matter how hard they try(and they were trying hard). Once I think about, Cleveland never had to catch up from a 20 point lead a lot. I'm going to Game 4 tonight, and I expect a maybe not easy win, but a win. Unless, the refs completely just manipulate us or the cavaliers get magically better(no pun intended, both of these are actually reasonably possible), we should win. I am welcome for any cavs fans to defend their team.

116-114.

Lebron can't pull a rabbit out of his hat this time.

if Skip to My Lou (and really, the team as a whole) didn't have such a fluky shooting night from 3, the Magic would have lost. What kind of elite team takes 38 threes?

wouldn't be shocked at all to see this series go to game 7

The same elite team that makes 45% of those 3's.

The series probably will go to 7 games, as Howard will get his 7th technical for no reason and get suspended for a game.

Seriously, can you watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTTzbpp2Y3k and tell me that deserves a techincal?

see: fluky, Rafer was a 33% three point shooter on the season. As I recall, he was 6/9 during regulation.

I'll admit that it is picky, but I've seen guys T'd up for much less. What he did was taunting.

The point is, elite teams generally don't live and die by the 3, which is what Orlando does. They only trailed the lolknicks in attempts during the season.

Truth. Also, the Magic are a good 3 shooting team, but FS is right, you can't depend on that. Lebron's pissed now. Watch him step up and carry the Cavs on his back for the next two (maybe 3) games.

Well they've been depending on it for the past several years. It's similar to how the Florida Gators use the spread offense, but have won two championships in recent years. Sometimes it works.

I still wish we had Nelson back. The Magic would have more of an inside game with him.

Also, the NBA has recsinded the technical on Howard, so now he only has 5.

I only got around to watching the 4th quarter, but what I saw was an ugly, confusing offensive effort from the Magic. Constantly settling for threes when it wasn't necessary and when weren't even remotely close to being open or shot in rhythm. They weren't looking to play a basketball game, they were participating in a three point shooting contest. The few times they actually DID look to run an offense other than "swing it around the perimiter", they looked pretty sharp.

That's what happens when the Magic panic. Of course the Cavs going 50% beyond the arc didn't help either.

Winner of Game 6 wins the series, as I really don't see Orlando beating the Cavs at Cleveland anymore, regardless of any 20+ point comebacks.

When I see the Cavaliers I see LeBron vs. Howard, Turkoglu, Lewis, and Pietrus. No matter how good you are, there is strength in numbers and LeBron is outnumbered. Now all we have to do is win Game 6, at home court.

Well being the bucks fan I am, I hope the cavs lose to whomever they face, I hoping the magic go all the way though because they kicked the Hawks butt's badly!
