Great match-up. Can't wait to see this one unfold!!! King James against Superman... The future is now and Eatsern Conference supremacy is up for grabs. Who's going to take it?

P.S. I wonder if Shaq has called his ex-coach to say "Congrats," yet???

I say MAGIC in 7 again. But, I'm not sure ... if we play them good, put good defense on them, we could beat them in 5. Really not sure ... so I stay with MAGIC in 7.

You've been suspended a couple times now haven't you? What did you get suspended for? I got threatened to be suspended once by a guy that wasn't even a moderator in a Philly forum and I didn't even say anything bad. I got accuse of "baiting" and people who know me on the site know that's not my style when I chat with folks. Anyways, good to have ya back Mac. Theres not many true Magic fans on this site so we need need everyone we got.

Yes he's great, noone is going to argue that, but one player can't beat a team and you don't have anyone other than Lebron on your team that scares me at all. We have 6-7 guys on our team all capable of scoring 20 + points any given night. Even if Bron avgs 35 and Mo 25, that's only 60 points, theres a reason why Clevland only avg 90.6 points against us this year. Savy

I do want the Magic to win but I also know that this is going to be a hard series... For us to be able to win, we got to be consistent and learn how to close out games... We can't just give out leads like what we did to the Celtics series coz they have a player who can really catch on fire and score a ton of points in the 4th quarter...

macc
05-18-2009, 05:02 PM
Actually I want us to play the Cavs the same way we did during the regular season, we would basically play Bron man to man for most of the first 3 quarters, some doubles but not much, then when the 4th quarter came around we doubled Bron and made other people shoot. It makes the Cavs change their offense in one quarter.


I don't know, I might just be over confident but to be honest I was more affraid of Boston then Clevland, with or without Garnett. We've just had Clevlands number for so long I don't see how that will change with the same players in uniform.

I don't hate on Lebron, I wish we had him. I just think he's missing one more player before he can start winning championships. Jordan had Pippen, Kobe had Shaq, Wade had Shaq, Duncan had Parker and Ginobli. Garnett had Pierce and Allen. Lebron has Mo Williams???? See my point

Dude to say the cavs have just LeBron is plain F***ing dumb. There is a reason they have the best record in the NBA. There is a reason they went 39-2 at home and 27-14 on the road. The reason is because they all fill their individual roles well. The team chemistry of the 2008-2009 Cleveland Cavs is unlike any I have ever seen before. We understand the Magic are a great team. not good, GREAT. The thing is they are not battle tested. They are tired. They have not been here before. We saw what happens when the Magic don't hit the 3 pt. shot. The Cavs have the best player int he world LeBron, HCA, Coach of the year, Freshness, and the experiance. Bottom line. The cavs are going to go straight at Dwight and get him in foul trouble. After that all you see is the magic jackin up 3's. For LeBron's supporting cast- Mo Williams, Z, Varejo, Joe Smith, Delonte West, Ben Wallace, Wally, Daniel Gibson, everyone on that list plays their role well. Just because they don't put up the high stats doesn't mean they are not good.


Also, Rashard Lewis is so overrated it makes me want to puke. Inside of the 3 pt line he is just god awful. No post moves, under-sized, avg rebounder.

courtney lee to start vs delonte west(hahaha)Courtney Lee will start for Magic vs. Cavs

Magic shooting guard Courtney Lee will replace J.J. Redick in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Coach Stan Van Gundy feels Lee matches up better with Cavaliers guard Delonte West, "who puts the ball on the floor more and attacks with the dribble." Redick capably defended Ray Allen in the second round, but Lee is still a superior defensive player. May. 19 - 12:43 pm et

He's overpaid, grossly. I don't think he's overrated, though. He's been shooting well inside and outside, and he's been getting good penetration.

I've been looking threw some magics forums, and I see alot of weird stuff. I ask myself how many games outside of the magic do these fans watch? answer is very little.

1. I read that lee is a mismatch for west? is that a joke? west shut down hamilton and joe johnson. How in the world is lee going to cause him problems? He's not.

2. Z will draw howard out of the paint, which will allow lebron to do his thing. If not, then Z will hit his shot all night.

3. Regular season means nothing. cavs were 2-0 vs spurs in regular season. what happened? they sweap us in finals. means nothing.

4. cavs are 40-1 at home.

5. If i were the cavs I would just let Z go one on one with howard. People might laugh, but howard has no jumpshot and a horrible hook shot. I would force howard to shoot over Z.

6. live by the 3 you die by the 3. I did not just make that up. Its the truth.

cavs win game 1 and 2, magic win 3 and 4, cavs win 5 and steal game 6.

cavs in 6. mybe even 5 if the magics three's don't fall.

Hey I'm not taking anything from Lebron, I think he's great but he's gonna need help to get it done. Yes you are correct that the Cavs are great with their record but since we're taking records weren't they 2-7 against the top 3 teams in the NBA? They can't beat great teams. Or at least they don't have winning records against them. Does that not tell you anything at all about your team? You can say the regular season doesn't mean anything but why? During the regular season these games are hyped up just as much as the playoff games so I don't see people's reasoning here when the say the regular season doesn't mean anything. Oh and our 29 pt victory over your team means nothing as well.

I've said it many times, we match up well against your team. When it comes to the playoffs its all about matchups. A team may struggle with one team in the playoffs but kill the next one. Look at the Lakers, they may beat up on a Utah team but then struggle w/ Houston w/ injuries. It's all about matchups.

Lebrons BIGGEST advantage over his apponents is driving into the lane with his leaping and athletic ability. Well we have an equalizer for that in our athletic freak in Dwight Howard. It forces Bron into a jump shooter and you know as well as I do that that isn't his best shot. That's why we'll win the series because after Howard and after your Bron we have the much better supportin cast.


On Lewis, if you think he's only a 3pt shooter than i'm sorry but you're simply ignorant and don't know his game. Hes excellent in the post, he has a nice turn around fade away that noone can guard, and he's good at driving and most importantly closing at the rim, if you don't believe, actually watch him play, he did it to the Celtics all series.

1. I woudln't say Lee is a mismatch for West but Lee will def defend him well, you won't see West with his wide open 3 pt oppurtunity's like you're used to seeing, don't believe me, ask House and Ray Allen of the Celtics how many open looks they got. Lee has some nice offense and a great mid range shot but in his rookie season he's known more for his lockdown defense

2. Z won't draw Howard out of the paint, when centers leave the lane typically Howard and Lewis/Battie will switch up. You rarely see Howard leave the lane

3. I would be saying the same thing to if my team lost by 29 pts

4. Actually you've lost at home twice. We are a great road team and was very close to beating you guys if it wasn't for a 3 sec violation that was called on us that wasn't called the entire game. In any case, your home court advantage is overated, if you say the regular season means nothing that stop PICKING AND CHOOSING what aspects of the regular season matter. Getting blown out by the Magic means nothing but winning on your home court doesn..hmmmmmmmm

5. Good luck with that one. Z avg's 11 pts and 8 rebounds against us. Shoot em up Z.

6. We've won ugly games when our 3 ball isn't dropping (see Magic/Philly Magic/Boston series) if you haven't noticed our 3 ball hasn't exactly been dropping that well this entire playoffs, somehow we've managed to get to the ECF.

And on Lee vs West, sure West shut down Hamiltion and Joe, but Lee has guarded the likes of Kobe and Wade and did a damn good job. I cant wait for tomorrow to see what happens.

hamilton isnt a face up player. he runs thru screens to shoot, joe was hurt. simple n plain. its no way delonte can check that man. so from that delonte has a hype from cleveland fans as a great defender. i think lee has a slight ege if his shot is on, i think rafer and mo even out. raf is a way better point and ballhandler, mo way better shooter.
and lee can guard a guy who avg 11pts easily

Lee will have to help on lebron, williams alot, which will get west open.

Well Z will have some big games I see. lebron will get howard in foul trouble real quick.



3. I would be saying the same thing to if my team lost by 29 pts

well I know your team has not been in the playoffs much, But you need to understand regular season is the regular season. It means nothing. If magic go in there thinking they will destroy the cavs like they did in that game, then cavs win in 4.




4. Actually you've lost at home twice. We are a great road team and was very close to beating you guys if it wasn't for a 3 sec violation that was called on us that wasn't called the entire game.

one real game. Nobody counts that last game. Although are bench almost beat the sixers.

Heck yaaa. If he's wide open, he is a very good shooter.

Also, Rashard Lewis is so overrated it makes me want to puke. Inside of the 3 pt line he is just god awful. No post moves, under-sized, avg rebounder.

He's been getting to the hoop pretty darn easily in the playoffs. He isn't big, but he is 6-10 and he is very lanky. He's not a bruiser, sure, but he wont claim to be. He's a SF playing out of position...but that just creates mismatched, sometimes both ways, sometimes not. He was probably the biggest reason we won the series vs. the Celtics. He showed up every night, and Big Baby and Scal couldn't guard him.

Overpaid...not overrated. He's an amazing scorer.

rapjuicer06
05-20-2009, 12:31 AM
i think orlando matches up great against the cavs. hedo on lebron, lee on williams, alston on west, and the switch for me is shard on Z and dwight on varejao. that way dwight can stay closer to the hoop and shard can guard Z on his shots. hopefully thats how we go about it. Z can't guard howard, varejao can't guard lewis or howard, lebron could shut down hedo but he'll be helping too much on dwight and shard. the cavs may be a great defensive team, but against us they just can't match up. their too slow with the big men, and not that athletic. in order for us to win this series shard and dwight need to come up huge. and hopefully MP can keep up the bench points as well

the best way the cavs could guard dwight is if lebron did. i think lebron would cause a lot of problems for dwight, but then that completely leaves our 3 point shooters open

Thanks bro too,you have one hell of a team,I'm pretty sure you're better than the cavs,plus you matchup pretty well against them.
If we go to the finals and meet you,I will be thrilled cause you're pretty good,wathever I hope it will be L.A - Orlando.

I love D12 ,Rashard and Pietrus,and Hedo is clutch as hell.

1. I woudln't say Lee is a mismatch for West but Lee will def defend him well, you won't see West with his wide open 3 pt oppurtunity's like you're used to seeing, don't believe me, ask House and Ray Allen of the Celtics how many open looks they got. Lee has some nice offense and a great mid range shot but in his rookie season he's known more for his lockdown defense

2. Z won't draw Howard out of the paint, when centers leave the lane typically Howard and Lewis/Battie will switch up. You rarely see Howard leave the lane

3. I would be saying the same thing to if my team lost by 29 pts

4. Actually you've lost at home twice. We are a great road team and was very close to beating you guys if it wasn't for a 3 sec violation that was called on us that wasn't called the entire game. In any case, your home court advantage is overated, if you say the regular season means nothing that stop PICKING AND CHOOSING what aspects of the regular season matter. Getting blown out by the Magic means nothing but winning on your home court doesn..hmmmmmmmm

5. Good luck with that one. Z avg's 11 pts and 8 rebounds against us. Shoot em up Z.

6. We've won ugly games when our 3 ball isn't dropping (see Magic/Philly Magic/Boston series) if you haven't noticed our 3 ball hasn't exactly been dropping that well this entire playoffs, somehow we've managed to get to the ECF.

I think we got their respect when Orlando swept them this year. In any case I like classy fans. Bostons fans were pretty good to go as well. So far the Cav's fans have been fine. I just got sick of hearing Philly fans complain about the refs...arggg..

I've been looking threw some magics forums, and I see alot of weird stuff. I ask myself how many games outside of the magic do these fans watch? answer is very little.

1. I read that lee is a mismatch for west? is that a joke? west shut down hamilton and joe johnson. How in the world is lee going to cause him problems? He's not.

2. Z will draw howard out of the paint, which will allow lebron to do his thing. If not, then Z will hit his shot all night.

3. Regular season means nothing. cavs were 2-0 vs spurs in regular season. what happened? they sweap us in finals. means nothing.

4. cavs are 40-1 at home.

5. If i were the cavs I would just let Z go one on one with howard. People might laugh, but howard has no jumpshot and a horrible hook shot. I would force howard to shoot over Z.

6. live by the 3 you die by the 3. I did not just make that up. Its the truth.

cavs win game 1 and 2, magic win 3 and 4, cavs win 5 and steal game 6.

cavs in 6. mybe even 5 if the magics three's don't fall.

It is so funny how you say regular season means nothing but saying afterwards you guys are 40-1 at home...:rolleyes:

I used to think all Laker fans are a bunch of homers... Apparently, they are not... Some are very classy... That is nice to see... Boston fans are great... Cavs fan however, are mixed too... There are a lot of classy ones but at the same time, there are a lot of homers too that believes they are unbeatable because they have the best player in the league... This series will be interesting... They are a good team at home but we proved to be a good road team expecially in the Celtics' series... I was so scared to play game 7 on them... But we did a good job... I just hope we can just hold Lebron down to his average... There is no way to stop that guy... Don't let him score 50 on us and if he doesn't, don't let him have like 12 assist that will get his teammates going... This is a hard task but ccan still be done... Can't wait for tonight... I hope we win game 1....

I know MagicBucsSox thinks I root against the Magic because I think Cleveland is better, and picked them to win the series...but you will really think I hate Magic fans if anyone starts whining about calls. There is nothing I can't stand more than people whining about the officiating. Just don't. You're going to be caught up in the game, and things will seem worse than they are at times. Try to be objective with the refereeing. 99% of the time the game is called the same for both teams, even when guys like Wade, LeBron and Kobe are involved.

Those guys get calls because they are the best. The don't get special treatment, they just are the best. The best players have the ball in their hands more than the rest, the best players are the most aggressive, the best players attack the rim the most. That's why guys like LeBron get calls. Because they deserve them. Occasionally they'll get a 50/50 call because of who they are, but you have to remember, it's a 50/50 call.

Please, please, please don't whine. No one likes people who complain about refs. Then again, I have no right to tell people how to root...

Gotta change up how we are defending LeBron. When he's isolating he's unstoppable...but at the same time, we're leaving shooters wide open, and he's too damn good of a passer to do that. SVG has done a great job handling the defense, hopefully he can adjust. He's absolutely dominating.

I can't take this series anymore, too many close calls already and i'm losing a couple years off my life as it is. I'm not going to complain about the refs but I knew that no technical foul call on williams would come back to bite the magic but **** happens. Hopefully hedo and rashard can start a game out like they do in the fourth quarters in the next two games and the magic can play some defense the entire game instead of just the second half. A lot of positives for orlando coming home for the next two games and right now I have to see this series going 3-1 in favor of the magic after these home games. Great win cleveland, hell of a 3 pointer by james, and see ya in orlando on sunday.

Yes I think Orlando is the team who was most tested in this playoffs,first round game 1 lost,won game 7 at boston,won game 1 at cleveland,and they always come back with vengeance,very impressive.

ESPN did it too. It was a solid 1:30 montage of the shot from every angle. They even followed it up with MJ's shot.

"I pulled it out of my bag of Michael Jordan tricks."

"The old 23 is gone, look at the new one."

I can't hate him.

He thinks he's the next MJ now. The media has been saying it since he was drafted, but LBJ thinks it now. LBJ thinks he's larger than life.

Ya it's crazy how good Lebron James is. I mean I knew he was good but you always play closer attention to the guy when he's facing your team as he is now and you really get to see how great the guy is. I don't hate on him, I appreciate the guy. Its just crazy how good this guy can get.

He doesn't have a true #2 man on his team. Imagine in 2010 if he gets paired up with a Chris Bosh or Amare, you might has well give his team a couple championships off the bat. Imagine Lebron w/ Dwight. Wouldn't even be fair.

Well the Magic are easy to like. Rashard Lewis has always been one of my favorite ballers. Watching Howard destroy cleveland down low has been awesome. Courtney Lee should get a rookie of the playoffs award after Rose. Gortat cracks me up. he loooks so goofy, but then he actually stuffs lebron.. freaken hilarious!

to add to that, nothing annoyed me more this year than the taunting and dancing of the cavs. They act like they already won the championship. After every Celtics loss, we had cavs fans talking some real garbage. I hate the obvious preferrential treatment lebonr gets on every drive or 3pt shot apparently. I hate how the NBA is trying to force this supposed next MJ upon us.

If Hedo and Shard play 40 minutes of basketball, and not like 10, we'll win tonight. We're lucky (not really, because the Cavs haven't been given us much of a challenge) that we've been able to win with such inconsistent play from them. Actually, our whole team has been painfully inconsistent. Vs. the western conference teams, our cold streaks will kill us. Gotta find a way to avoid the long droughts we go through...and I think Hedo and Dwight have to be the drought-killers. Hedo by going to the hoop, and Dwight by getting the ball down low and scoring.

I know this is great. This is what winning does for a franchise. I don't know if they are bandwagon jumpers or long time fans but I don't care. Being a dallas cowboy fan during football season, you can't get a word in edgewise in that forum with so many people in there but it's great to see so many fans and I hope the magic get a lot more people like that if they go all the way. It's still a long way to go and the way this series and this post season is shaping up, one more shot that comes down to the buzzer and I may have a heart attack and this forum loses someone. I like orlando's chances this year more than I did when penny and shaq took this team to the finals and I have a feeling it's going to be a magical year. GO MAGIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I sure hope we just keep up the great play and wrap this up in Clevland tonight. Not that I am negative but I have been a fan since day one with the Magic and a season ticket holder for 5 seasons now and I have seen the Magic go stone cold sometimes. Hell even against Philly and Boston some this post season. The shots that have fallen for Rashard with the game clock under 15 seconds have been fantastic but if those miss... we are down 3-1. And over 99 games this season I have seen plenty of those clank off the rim for losses. I used to moan a little bit about his contract but these playoffs have convinced me otherwise. I hope he goes to the rim tonight like he did in Boston. I do not want to see 38 3's jacked tonight.
I have posted in the Orlando sentinel forums for years but am happy to find a new home at prosports daily. I have come here for articles for a couple years but just joined the forums. I have told all my buds too. GO MAGIC!!! finish this!

You can't deny that Hedo was inbounds when he passed the ball. You can't deny that Rafer was very close to being behind LeBron. Both weren't bad calls. I see clear path called a lot. Not the inbounds call, but that was blatant. If that's the best you can come up with as to why Cleveland won, you're crazy. The officiating was absolutely fine last night. Best officiated game since game 2 (both games we lost).

But you're right, they wont shoot that well again. Shard wont shoot that poorly again. Rafer wont go 1-10, maybe 3-10, but anything is better for him. Our defense will be ready. SVG has been a defensive genius these playoffs. We can't afford those cold streaks I keep talking about. The whole first quarter was a cold streak. Much of the 4th was a cold streak. Sooner or later they're going to come back to haunt us. Need to find a way to score some buckets when we are struggling.

We'll get them tomorrow. :pray:

I should have pointed out the free throw disparity also. Not because orlando shot more free throws, the fact that they missed something like 12 or 13 free throws and howard missed like 4 or 5 of them. Lewis missed 2, turk missed a couple, that should have been the game changer right there. Make free throws and play better defense and orlando wins this game.

You guys should check out my post in the other thread......

Orlando's 3 keys to success are (IMO)

Keeping Dwight out of foul trouble
Stopping Cleveland from shooting so well again
Rafer taking better shots (or at least making the shots he takes).....

After Cleveland's performance in G4, Home Court advantage doesnt do much for the Magic.

I disagree...with the second two. I kind of agree with the first.

Cleveland's shooters aren't going to shoot 50% from three again. There's nothing we can do about that. We have got to play them the same way we have all series. It's worked 4 times out of 5. Unfortunately, they were on fire last night. I doubt they can keep that up for two more games.

Rafer is our 6th best scoring option. He needs to take better shots...sure, but he's not going to be the reason we win or lose. He's not that important.

Rashard is that important. He had a bad game. He and Hedo need to play good basketball for all 4 quarters, not just one, like they have all series long. As they go, the whole team goes.

And the defense needs to step it up again. Too many wide open dunks and layups. Poor transition defense. Too many mental errors. Howard left his man open a few times. The guards left their men to help on LeBron too much. We got to let LeBron try and beat us from the perimeter, and not let him get to the hoop. If we force Cleveland into a jump shooting team...we'll win.

And free throws. We gotta make them...plain and simple.
