Full story: Orlando Sentinel

They've taken their fans on a wild, wondrous journey since October and defied the kind of odds this postseason that gets you in Ripley's and makes Vegas blush.

Fall apart in the 4th quarter? Way to watch the game Sentinel. The Magic outscored the Lakers in the 4th. They fell apart in the 3rd.

The decision of playing Nelson was wrong. Just broke the team chemistry, that is the reward to Alston and A johnson. Orlando are in the finals because Nelson was out, he is a defensive liability. Period.

Way to go Lakers! We got this one now, there's NO WAY Orlando can win the next three, they don't deserve it to give away the game like they did tonight!This year was their best opportunity at a championship because they can forget about it next year when Boston gets Garnet back and will easily take out Orlando.What can I say but "The refrigerater's closed the lights are out,the butter's getting hard,the eggs are coolin and the jellows jigglin"!!!!!!!!!

Thank you referee's for missing 10 fouls against the Magic. That made it 20 points closer than it should have been. GO Magic and David Stern!
Dude they missed fouls on both sides, none that would cost either team the game. Missed free throws and bad plays (not fouling Fish) at the end. I would feel the same way even it the Lakers lost.

Sorry, Magic fans. It should not have been that close. If Howard had been called for the fouls he commits EVERY TIME the Magic are on offense, and Turkoglu had been called for the offensive fouls he commits EVERY TIME he drives and pushes off with his off hand, it would have been a 20 point Lakers win.
We have enjoyed your victories over the weaker Eastern conference teams, but West is still best.
P.S. The best player in Florida is still D Wade. He was by far the best player in the Olympics, whereas Howard was a stiff, and he was better than Kobe except for the last 3 minutes of the gold medal game.

Two questions -- Why wasn't Fischer fouled towards the end of regulation when the Magic were up 3? And the second question is...who the hell decided to leave Jameer in the game so freakin' long?

Jameer ultimately cost us this game.

well magic fans, this one hurt. we truly beat ourselves in this game. dwight has to make a free throw there at the end. It was our game and we beat ourselves. As jim would say, this series is over folks. It just blows cuz if dwight makes one free throw then the series is completely different.

Yeah, and if Kobe were called for all of his fouls, you guys wouldn't even be in the Finals, chucklehead.

Trevor Ariza, even though he was not voted player of the game, should have been. His amazing 3rd quarter brought the Lakers back into the game after a great first half by the Magic. Great win for the Lakers, tough loss for the Magic.
