Haha is this guy serious?!

I mean not even I, a Cavs fan, am going to tell you I'm confident the Cavs are going to win. But Magic by 19 seems like an outrageous statement to me after all these great games we're seeing.

Magic have won by 1, 10 and 2 - average of 4.3.
Cavs have won by 1 and 10 - average of 5.5.

I don't see the winner winning by more than 10, but I'm going to be a homer and say Cavs by 2 - this time Lewis rims out a game-winner.

look at the Celtics Magic series and u saw how that ended. every game was close, but then it ended in a blow out. i see something very similar here. lebron looks exhausted out there.

if it means anything. i picked u guys by 10 in game 5 and i was right. sooo anyways, its my opinion/prediction and im sure u will let me know about it if im wrong.

I think the Celtics were more worn down than the Cavs are right now. They had just got off a seven-game series before having to endure another one with Orlando. It will be interesting nonetheless. We shall see.

Nike will pay millions so that Cavs - Lakers meet in the finals. They want to air the rest of their commercials. In harsh economic times, one could do the math for the difference between a Lakers - Cavs 7 game series and a Magic - Nugs 4 game series in the finals. The difference would be hunders of millions of dollars of revenue and popularity for a sport that loses to its college predecessor in ratings. I'm not saying I think the NBA is fixed, I'm just saying that I wouldn't be surprised if everything was "a bit swayed" towards a Lakers-Cavs long Finals series. It's kind of like saying I don't think people in the MLB do roids anymore, but I am not surprised to hear about new people getting caught. Above all the NBA is a business, if it wasn't, games would be free and people would be able to bring their own Naty Light to the game.

All in all I hope to see a Cavs Lakers finals...just to see what other commercials Nike has in the bank ;-).

I understand that a lot of people think the role players who contributed for the Cavs in Game 5 can't possibly do it again. But you have to understand that this is what the Cavs did all year - and even in the first two rounds of the playoffs. The Magic did a great job in the first four games of taking those guys out of the game, but it's not a fluke that they played well and they can do it again. Obviously the big question is will they when they're up against the wall on the road?

role players excel at home and dissapear on the road in the playoffs. I have no idea why, but it always happens. Last night was no surprise. Gibson will not play well in Orlando for some reason, while someone on Orlando like Gortat will have a nice game like 8 pts. 6 rbs off the bench. its just usually what happens.

That is exactly why I mentioned how all the role players on cleveland most likely will not have the same game on the road in orlando. Gibson, West, and even Varejao prolly will not have the same offensive production they had in game 5.

Should be a good game but I think the Magic will win by 7 +. I don't see the Cavs shooting over 50% from 3 pt range again or their role players having another big game. Mo will shoot is usual 5-17.

The Cavs are gonna try to get Howard into foul trouble early, I can see quite a few plays in the first with Lebron taking it to him. If they do take Howard out of the game because of it, it might be a catch 22 because Gortat has had Lebrons number and has blocked him like 3 times already this series.

I hope the Magic pull it off tonight. Its 80 degrees here and I'm skipping out on the lake so I can watch this game. Hopefully the Magic don't disappoint me.

yeah, what they did during the rest of the season against other opponents other than the magic does not matter...

the magic have had the cavs number as of late -- during the regular season, the cavs just did not have an answer -- yes they did have that one win...but they should not have won that game.

Its all about match ups.. the cavs just do not match up well against the magic... and it makes it tough. The celtics matched up well against the magic and kendrick contained dwight...thats why it was close. its not that the cavs are bad...they just dont match up well..so they cant get their rythem going.

that said, its not out of the question that they can win -- they have the talent. just saying it will be tough.

Well they did twice this year...


It might be a preview to a matchup that is just beginning to brew...

Howard vs. Bynum. Granted Bynum is still 1-2 years away from being even in the same stratosphere as Dwight, but the two workout together in the offseason, and are probably the two best young centers in the game.

You misspelled Dwyane Wade...


Lebron does initiate a lot of contact with his shoulder, depending on where Lebron hits the defending player it could be a charge. Shoulder in the middle of the chest is an offensive foul.

Greetings everyone,
I believe this game will be really close, LeBron James will be great as always. What I think will really matter is whether or not his teammates will help him out and make some shots, like they did in game 5. I feel the Magic will win tonight, behind their home crowd. It'll be interesting though.

The problem is that when he DOES lower his shoulder into the defender, which is almost all the time and the foul is always going in Lebron's favor. Whether it is Petrius or even Howard, and you saw in game 5 when howard got fouled out he was mouthing out to Lebron, how he gets every call.

The way I see it, the Magic should be happy they are up 3-2 going into tonight's game at home. Games 1, 2, and 4 could have went to either team. The Cavs could have been up 3-1 going into game 5 and closed the Magic out. Games 3 and 5 have been the only "blowouts" if you want to call them that. When you back an animal into a corner it's going to attack, that's what the Cavs did in game 5 and hopefully they can do tonight.

On the flip side the Cavs should be happy they weren't swept. Lebrons 3 at the end of the game with 1 sec left ring a bell? Magic should've won 4-0.

Magic win by +10 tonight. Delonte West and Mo Will struggle while Big Z goes back to having no impact on the game. It took those 3 playing GREAT for the Cavs to win and the stars won't align for all 3 of them again. Magic close it out tonight.

Go cavs! I figure the NBA has been pushing the heck out this and after seeing Lebron single handedly win game 6, I am on that Cavs/Lakers FINALS bandwagon. I would have loved to see my rockets in full squad in the finals, but Lebron is a stud and I would love to see him match wits and air time with Kobe, who has matured and is the only worthy competitor to Lebron. I can see ESPN foaming at the mouth.

Yes, that is what those players are doing all year... Especially at home... Not in Orlando though... You guys have yet to win there... As much as the whole world want to see Lakers vs Cavs in the finals, they should look at the facts first... It is very unlikely for a team to go out a 1-3 hole... People are saying it is possible because the Cavs have Lebron James... They are not looking at the whole picture though... Yes, they have Lebron and maybe they can do it against an ok team but against the Magic? People, give credit where it is due...

Yeah... Games 1, 2 and 4 could have gone both ways... This series should have been over... The Magic should have swept the Cavs... When you disrespect the Magic like what Mo did, they are going to attack... That's what they did in the first four games... The Cavs just got lucky Lebron hit that shot...

Alston and Pietrus only played well at home (just like your players)... Lewis had some bad games too... Courtney Lee is scoring a lot less compared to the other series... Even Howard had an off game (in the offensive end)... Refs are also giving some phantom calls on Howard... Despite that, they are still ahead of the series... So please, enough with the excuses...

How would you know that the Cavs would be done if Nelson was playing?

Nelson is in the same position as Mo Williams.

Doesn't have a lot of exp in the playoffs and have a lot on their shoulders.

And even if Nelson was playing, he might choke like Williams and cost his team.

And If Nelson wasn't injured, Alston would never be in Orlando.

Alston was a big reason the Magic are up. The Cavs would have won Game 4 if it wasn't for Alston.


And you can't really blame the refs for not letting Howard play physical. They just don't want Howard swinging elbows around and getting away with it cuz if they let it play out, he would probably only get a flagrant instead of a suspension.

Alston was a big reason the Magic are up. The Cavs would have won game 4 if it wasn't for Alston.

You are looking at a picture and just picking the stuff you need... Nelson and Mo are two different players... This is Mo's first year in the Cavs...Nelson has been in the Magic for a while... They have not gone far in the playoffs till this year but have gotten experiences in the previous years... If you look at Nelson's stats closely, you would notice that he is more efficient in the playoffs than in the regular season... Unlike Mo who is more effcient in the regular season than the playoffs... So there is no facts to prove that Nelson might choke like Mo if he was here... If you don't believe me, this is the stats:

Nelson
06-07 regular season 43% FG 13 ppg, 4.3 apg
06-07 playoffs 42% FG 14.2 ppg, 3.3apg
07-08 regular 47%, 10.9, 5.6
07-08 playoffs 50%, 16.2 4.7

Yes, if Nelson, was here, Alston would not be here... Yes, Alston was a big factor in game 4... However, look at the other games... He was a non factor in other games and taking questionable shots... If he made those or at least tried taking smarter and more efficient shots, they would have won game 2 and maybe game 5! That is why Nelson is being missed by the Magic... He provides consistency and 4th quarter scoring which is the Magic's weaknesses...

Lastly, I am not really trying to argue about how this would have been over if Nelson was here... Coz fact is, he is not and there is nothing we can do about it... I am just showing you how irritating it is when people make excuses and just can't accept they lost and the other team is better...

Oh, and on the Howard issue, I was not talking about the elbows coz those kind of fouls should definitely be called...

You are looking at a picture and just picking the stuff you need... Nelson and Mo are two different players... This is Mo's first year in the Cavs...Nelson has been in the Magic for a while... They have not gone far in the playoffs till this year but have gotten experiences in the previous years... If you look at Nelson's stats closely, you would notice that he is more efficient in the playoffs than in the regular season... Unlike Mo who is more effcient in the regular season than the playoffs... So there is no facts to prove that Nelson might choke like Mo if he was here... If you don't believe me, this is the stats:

Nelson
06-07 regular season 43% FG 13 ppg, 4.3 apg
06-07 playoffs 42% FG 14.2 ppg, 3.3apg
07-08 regular 47%, 10.9, 5.6
07-08 playoffs 50%, 16.2 4.7

Yes, if Nelson, was here, Alston would not be here... Yes, Alston was a big factor in game 4... However, look at the other games... He was a non factor in other games and taking questionable shots... If he made those or at least tried taking smarter and more efficient shots, they would have won game 2 and maybe game 5! That is why Nelson is being missed by the Magic... He provides consistency and 4th quarter scoring which is the Magic's weaknesses...

Lastly, I am not really trying to argue about how this would have been over if Nelson was here... Coz fact is, he is not and there is nothing we can do about it... I am just showing you how irritating it is when people make excuses and just can't accept they lost and the other team is better...

Oh, and on the Howard issue, I was not talking about the elbows coz those kind of fouls should definitely be called...


The last 2 years, Nelson didn't have to carry the team as much. He was the 3rd and even 4th player they went to behind Howard, Turkaglu and Lewis.

This year though, he is the 2nd best player on the Magic. I would still think Nelson might choke a couple of times and might not produce as expected.

I want you to stop making excuses for him; that's what. He almost single-handedly lost game four for them with all of those turnovers in the fourth quarter and OT and simply disappeared in the second quarter tonight.

Cavs came out playing like a team who expected to get beat. No fire. No heart. They got in a hole and started playing stupid. Missing free throws. Over-pursuing on defense. I don't think they realize they can't not play fundamental basketball and expect to be a team as good as the Magic.

Magic shooting 54 percent - from the field and from the line. They don't really know how to miss shots when it matters. That's why, if they hold on to this monstrous lead, I think they will beat the Lakers too.

He took more than two shots. Even still, if he's the "next Michael Jordan," he should have taken over when the Magic were walking all over his team during that run. The excuses for James are just sickening.

going 1 on 5 is tough...even jordan cudnt win every time (its b4 my time so i mite be wrong lol..but i think he won 6 and played many more years then 6 so its pretty evident he didnt win every time)

Jordan made everyone else around him better. I have yet to see LeBron truly do that.

I got the start time of the game wrong, so I've missed most of the first half. Shocking scoreline though. I thought the Cavs would be more competitive than this...

Good first half from Orlando but they need to keep it up all game long, Cleveland can come back in no time.

This is bad news for LA, I think the Lakers could walk over Cleveland b/c Kobe would cancel out LeBron and the rest of the Lakers are good while the other players on Cleveland have been awful.

down by 18 in a elimination game and people still think LeBron is better then Kobe?!

Orlando is a tough matchup for Los Angeles. I still think the Lakers' talent will lift them to the title, though, as much as I hate to say it.

This whole series is comical. Assuming the Magic hang on and win, they legitimately won the series, no doubt about its. Buts its just a joke watching the best player in the NBA not be able to advance to the finals because of things outside of his control. Lebron James is doing everything he can and it really should be enough, but there are so many other factors where he is on his own.

And I see we have another member of the LeBron James apologist club...

He is NOT the best player in the NBA.

They're actually giving us the game 7 times. As if it's going to be "necessary".

This would never happen to MJ's teams, yes the Bulls have better players than LeBron's team but MJ was the leader that LeBron isn't.

Hahah if the Magic win it all, my boy JJ while have a ring and LeBron won't.

Exactly. Jordan could have won a title with LeBron's current supporting cast.

maybe so but i think you will agree that it will be harder beating Orlando b/c Gasol and Bynum will have a real tough time.

For your 1st part, guilty. Second part, I disagree and if you really want to argue it this isn't the thread anyway, so I guess we just agree to disagree for now.

This is a Jordan/Kobe/LeBron thread?

I thought I was here to talk about the basketball game going on television at the moment instead of comparisons that are impossible to make. Can anyone point me in the direction of the correct thread?
