Nuggets win series.

Cavs will not sweep D12 and friends. It'll go to game 6-7.

Nuggets have a good chance to take advantage of the weary and less confident Lakers.

Beating a team by 58 will give you a big confidence booster.

I think the Nuggets have a legitimate chance of winning the series. Whereas the Cavs sweeping is unlikely, as is the Magic winning in my opinion. Cavs in 5.

Nuggets win
Magic win
Cavs sweep

I think the Nuggets will win, I hope/think the Magic can win (but I'm not picking them), and I'm sure the Cavs won't sweep.

not saying its going to happen, but out of those 3 scenarios, Nuggets winning the series is easily the most likely...NBA conspiracists are going to jump all over these two series on any questionable call, or even if the lakers meet the cavs in the finals. Odds wise though, it probably will be Lakers vs. Cavs in the finals...so excited.

I think the Nuggets will win the series now. At the beginning of the playoffs I would have said Lakers but I think the Nuggets have a good chance. Otherwise, Cavs in 6.

I would believe Orlando has a better shot to beat Cleveland than Denver has to beat LA. However, both could happen as well.

So is beating a team by 40.

Magic win is definitely most likely. Cavs sweep has least chance IMO.

Nugs win. I think the Cavs will win, but they won't sweep

Nuggets win.

Orlando has too many shooters to get swept. Magic win is possible, but unlikely considering Cleveland's HCA. So, I gotta take the Nuggets win. It's unlikely, but Denver matches up well enough with the Lakers that I could see an upset somehow happening.

All three are pretty damn unlikely though.

IMO Magic winning the series is not as unlikely as it seems.
They have done pretty well in the offseason against the Cavs.
You can't argue with the Cavs sweeping their first 2 opponents. I mean they beat a ****ed up Pistons team and the Hawks. I'm not trying to take anything away from them, but you can't say that because they played their first two rounds so well they will definitely beat the Magic let alone sweep them.
Every series starts at 0 and bball is a game of matchups.

The Nuggets chances depend on the attitude of the Lakers. If they don't take Denver seriously they will be in trouble but skillwise I think LA will beat them.

To me it's a toss up bewtween Nuggets beating LA and Magic beating Cavs although I would say that Denver beating LA would be a slightly bigger upset.
I mean it's the best four teams in the NBA, so anything can happen.

Forget Cavs sweeping Orlando. Not gonna happen!

cavs sweep... if dhoward cant stop lebron in game one i think the series goes to the cavs the second king james drives the lane with a dunk.

Magic beating Cavs.

They match up perfect with them

Right, except for the Magic having no one to guard LeBron, the Cavs having a big man that can draw Howard away from the basket, and the Cavs' defense holding opponents to the worst 3PT% and FG% in the league.

Teams don't match up perfect with opponents this late in the playoffs.

It will be a war and I think the Cavs will still take the series. I think my words where taken out of context I just think the Magic have the tools to win the series.

everybody is so against orlando losing but the big thing is orlando won 2 of the 3 games and i know it doesn't matter in the playoffs but we know that orlando can beat cleveland.....and for guarding lebron- courtney lee kept him pretty good forced him to take real bad shots.....and z cannot guard d how....its just gonna be a better series then everyone thinks

Sure, Orlando can win. By the time you get to the conference semifinals, typically all four teams have a realistic shot at the Finals.

I'm not even predicting that the Cavs will win (although if you forced me to . . .). I'm just pointing out that the Cavs have been, to this point, the better team, and thus it's impossible to "match up perfectly" with a team when you're the weaker of the two.

Nuggets winning is more likely.
Cavs have no shot at sweeping this one. They had two close games against the hawks.
Now they play a team with a superstar center to which Cleveland has no answer.

Nuggets win series. The Cavs have yet to face a dominant big man in the playoffs, D12 will win them one game on his own.

It's simple probability. The odds that the Nuggets will in 4 out of 7 games is substantially higher than the odds that the Magic will go 0 for 4. Odds are that neither will happen, but Orlando getting swept with a healthy Dwight? Next to impossible.
