We need to come out like it is game 7 and just pester the hell out of them defensively. Then drive the lane and get everyone in foul trouble. The Cavs would love that.

I hope the Magic do not get complacent and feel they have this in the bag. I do believe they can win the series but the Cav's aren't convinced of that yet and will fight harder then ever on home turf. We have 3 games left and only need 1 of them so why not make it tonight so they can rest a couple of days. It would be great not to have to see LeBron throw his magic dust anymore!!!

Reading the Cleveland Plain Dealer comments about the series and it is too funny.
First, they say if only a couple of plays worked there would be a different outcome. No , really? If in game two James had missed his shot it would be over.
Second, two of the losses have only been by a point or two. Uh huh. and one of your wins. It is the playoffs and that is how championships are won.

Third,"we need to bang on Howard and make him miss his free throws" Uh I believe that was the theory in game one. Uh, you lost!
The Magic had a 3-1 lead on Detroit and lost. Uh, is anyone on this team that was on that team? There is no McGrady on this team. Famous for disappering in the fourth quarter.This is a tough team that comes back from 23 and 16 points.
Fifth, They want the head of there coach on a platter. He only won "Coach of the Year" They only won 66 games in the season. They only swept two teams in the playoffs. Man, coaching is a no win job. We do the same with VanGundy. He is a good coach. I like his style(or lack of it). He is not satisfied with a win nor up 3-1. He keeps his eye on the target. Win or lose he is a great coach.

Cleveland needs the services of BIRDMAN!!! SQUUUUAAK! No, but seriously...someone other than Bron has to step up..Mo Will needs to back up his guarantee...I knew he cursed his team when he guaranteed to win the series...we'll see if someone finally decides to help Bron.

Cleveland needs to clone LbJ 11 times for them to have more success.

As he said himself, one game he guarded Turk and Lewis lit it up, the other game he guarded Lewis and Turk lit it up.. This last time he guarded Rafer and Rafer pretended it was an AndOne contest and schooled him..

Magic will likely win tonight. This will probably play out like game 1 to be honest. They will likely want to slow down our 3's therefore less coverage in the paint. Maybe we are down around 10 at half, but here come the Magic believe me!! I am pretty sure it will play out like this but heck, I will enjoy the ride whatever happens.

If the Magic win they will never beat the other team in the finals. If they lose, the Magic are crumbling and will be witnesses to the mighty comeback of the Lebron's....This is information straight from ESPN and every mainstream sports coverage out there. Listening to the radio they said CLE still has a great shot at coming back...REALLYYYY???

Yes, really. I will score 99 tonight myself, and then pass out on the court clutching random body parts and squirt some more ketchup on my knee.

Arubadub dub the Magic get clubbed. The first of a 3 game super flub.

Ewing coach next year. Nelson ball hogs Magic out of playoffs.

Van Gundy puts the weight back on. More food on shirt. Owners get drunk fall over furniture.

Glue sniffers vote in new arena. Foreclosures at an all time high as residents wonder how it happened.

Howard remains clumsy as his mentor.

Formally great newspaper trumpets Orlando "life style"

Literacy rate plummets. The homeless vote Apopka as America's most livable city.
