The answer is very simple.... Two words : PAT GARRITY ! He will stop Lebron with his quickness and his acrobatic skills...

This should be a good example of how much 2 playoff teams really give a crap after knowing they will be in the Playoffs no matter what.

I wont predict a point spread on this one, either team could win by One or Twenty,( a laugher.) Depends if they are serious.

Interesting to me will be Dwight & Ben Wallace. Just to see the rebound competion.
I think Cleveland will win.
Next.

I think this game means plenty to both. Ego is on the line big time tonight.

Magic are ticked about all the "It's gonna be Boston, Detroit, or Cleveland" talk.

unless cleveland plays zone we will kill them becuase big ben will have to guard rashard out on the perimeter. i predict pat garrity will score 50 points and get 30 rebounds. thats something you can take to the bank.

Wow, Pat Garrity playing in a first quarter against the Cavs in S.Patrick Day.

I have to stop smoking so much...

Seriously, in this type of game is when I miss so much Battie.

And he's playing well too...

So, next wish is: see JJ making a block to Lebron!

This is my prediction, Jim!

I'm over Lebron James. Did you hear what Rashard said after the game in the interview. If you even breath on Lebron he gets the call.

Also, out of all the goaltending calls on Dwight tonight, only one should of been called, the other 3 were legitimate blocks.

If they are going to give Lebron superstar calls, it seems like its time for the refs to step it up and give the same treatment to Dwight.

Although, in my opinion, nobody should get special calls, it should be a foul, or not a foul. It shouldn't depend on who you are!

Nice win Magic!
