Well, let me one of the first to congratulate the Cavs. You guys were the better team tonight. Mo W showed up big for you guys and you shot the ball well.

Magic, we need to get off to a better start and not just think we can come back all the time. Play D for 48 minutes and we are in the finals. Bring it home guys!

Let's do it in Orlando!

I agree, the pressure is now on the Magic to win at home. If they lose, they lose the series, end of story.

I have enough of watching this whatever James... The referees decided that whoever touches his body, it is a foul. What a shame... It makes watching basketball no fun.

Tough loss, but the truth be told, the Cavs deserved this one. The Magic have to get over this bad habit of getting down by so much. But Orlando has shown time and time again they bounce back after a tough loss. Now on to Saturday. We win game 6 and we let the Cleveland fans continue their "we are cursed" montra for another year.

Pressure is still on cleveland in game 6. Theyre playing on the road in a win or done situation. Cavs did what they had to do, and frankly what they were expected to do, and thats win at home. Now its orlandos turn to do the same exact thing. Im looking back and hating that last second 3 pointer that lebron hit with his eyes closed about now though. Oh well, cant dwell on the past, lets go Magic, take care of business AT HOME on saturday nite. Battled too hard and come too far to fall apart and quit now.6687

Well I called this loss people. I said the Magic would come out flat and that Cleveland would score 30 or more points in the first quarter as well as close to 60 for the half.

No killer instinct for the Magic. None. I had a feeling it would cost them this game. I am also sticking to my guns as far as the Magic losing this series in 7 games. When the Magic were up 3 games to 1 I called for the Cavs to win 3 straight and take the series.

In game 6 I expect Howard to get into early foul trouble and thus be taken out of the game essentially. Also as usual look for LeBron to be camped out at the ft line.

I expect the Cavs to build a nice early lead in that game and then it will see saw back and forth until LeBron takes over once again in the 4th quarter.

Then the Magic will lose game 7 in Cleveland. That I feel will be a semi blowout win for the Cavs.

Wow what a surprise the REF's put Dwight Howard in foul trouble then get him out of the game in the last critical minutes of the game. The Diva Lebron gets to play 8 more minutes then Howard and shoots 6 more free throws. The NBA just makes me sick, sick, sick ! Diva Lebron plays more aggressive on defense and offensive then ANY player in the NBA and never ever has to worry about foul trouble it just does not add up other then the NBA is biased to Lebron which unfortunately takes away from the game of basketball and the fact that yes Lebron is a great player. Sorry though he loses credibility cause he is constantly bailed out by the refs on both the offensive and defensive end. These Chuckle heads on TNT talking about Dwight needs to get on the free throw line more ?!?! WTF? that's not his fault the Diva biased refs only call 50% of the fouls on the Cavs when they intentionally foul him, no wonder he gets frustrated. Was anyone's game until the Jerk refs got rid out Dwight no run until then. No mention by TNT on how Diva and the Cavs made their run after the Refs got rid of Howard. Puke, Vomi,t Hurl ..SICK SICK SICK.

Lebron is on fire. Game 7 will be in Cleveland on Monday night...Magic and Gundy will falter under the huge pressure that's on them now. Turk will go 2-12. Howard will foul out. Fans will be heard chanting to the cavs players "beat LA..beat LA...beat LA"

Every blog in Cleveland was full of Cleveland fans talking about firing Brown, how Lebron caused their problems by wearing a Yankees cap to an Indians game, how Mo was no good, how that God hates Cleveland, etc..etc...etc...

This whole thing is being orchestrated here to make Lebron out to look like a super hero bringing his team back from a 3 to 1 deficit to win a series.

And you know what ? When you have 8 guys playing against 5 it makes it even easier for him to accomplish this feat.

LeBron will have 3 personal escorts for the next 2 games as he scores over 40 in both of them to "lead" his team to the "great comeback".

In the end David Stern gets his dream series of the Lakers versus the Cavs.

Oh well. The Magic had a great year and have nothing to be ashamed of...especially when they lost this series while playing 5 against 8.
