No comparison ! 0-2 starting in Detroit but going back to their arena is a bit different than going 0-2 in their building..... and comming to the Orlando.

Since all the pressure is on them and we have 'nothing to lose' we should bomb them with 3's all night long.

Crush their spirit and beat them by 20 something.

Nothing takes a crowd or a team out of a game like a constant barrage of 3's.

If we win tonight, this series is over. There is no way we will lose both at home and we don't have T-Mac on the team. So having a 3-1 lead in a series should guarantee victory, alas we still need just 3 more wins to get back to the Finals.

magic need to play every game like its do or die mentality,with urgency,and hunger...dont let off,cavs are going to give all in game two,and magic should s\and can step up intensity even more..if magic go up two,its to much for cavs to fight back going into orlando...magic should stay focused,determined and have a world of confidence as they showed in third and fourth qrt in game one!!! i told everybody magic give cavs and lakers major matchup problems,major problems!!!

Re: Defending James? Run him to death.
The only weakness he's shown thus far is fatigue, so that's the weakness we need to exploit.
Pietrus did a great job defending him - LeBron's gonna score regardless, but I think Pietrus made him expend extra energy on every possession, whether he scored or not. So, the Magic need to do whatever they can to run LeBron on both ends of the court and hope that he again runs out of gas at the end.

Yeah, not only do the Magic have to beat LeBron, they've got to beat the ref's. The League is hell-bent on getting the 'LeBron vs. Kobe' finals, so the Magic are really gonna have an uphill battle. Count on Howard being in foul trouble every game. Time to step up, Gortat. I think Gortat's in a contract year anyway, and word is he can get paid a whole lot more in Europe next year, so time for him to work on improving the value of his stock, because the Magic are gonna need solid performances from him...

With Lebron on their team, I wouldn't go that far.
But I love the optimism!!

Yes, that would be me.
I'm ASHAMED! lol...See my face is all RED! Well actually BLUE.
Even though we have their numbers and all the stats point to us....it was a one point win.
Very HUGE but still a series.
Point is, you cant get too overconfident.

Stay a FAN yet be REAL!

Is it just me, or is Cleveland sounding like a team that has already lost Game 2? They don't seem to have the right frame of mind to win tonight...OF COURSE Game 2 is a MUST WIN for them. Oh well...I hope that's the case and I hope the Magic pull this one out.
GO MAGIC!!!
