I knew LeBron wouldn't let the Cavs lose this game. The Magic will get 'em Game 6 in the 407.

Orland, your team has played almost flawless, championship-caliber ball up until game 5. Today, they looked more human, and the Cavs looked more like a team that won 66 games.

Now, it's back to your place. You certianly have the talent and the will to win this game. But the Cavs won't go quietly. If you can't win game 6, I can't see you guys winning game 7.

I'm a Cavs fan, and haven't enjoyed the series too much. But I'd rather go down to you guys than see the Celtics go back-again-to the championship game. We'll see you in game 6. Hopefully, we'll see you up here for game 7.

Alston lost us this game. Can't really blame him considering he won us the previous one. Hopefully now he remembers he's not a shooting threat, some of those shots were completely uncalled for.

Magic will close it out saturday and orlando will go crazy. They'll take the games out of the refs hands in case they have any bright ideas. Why do i know this? Because Jim called a loss, too easy.

Those going to game 6 make sure to get loud to put pressure on some of those cavs shots!

We could have one this game. With about 7 or 8 minutes left we had the lead and then for the next 4 or 5 minutes we did not go inside the paint one time. The refs were calling a good game, if you went inside you got the call. We were going inside and getting to the FT line. Then we stopped. During this time Z had gotten his 5th foul and all we had to do was feed Howard down deep because there is no way Verajao can stop him. We had the advantage and didnt capitalize. Too bad we could have closed it out. Congrats to the Cavs who kept going inside the last 5 minutes and getting to the line and hitting some open three. See you in Orlando. The Cavs graveyard.

I loved Dwight's post game comments:

Reporter: "Do you think you can be as physical as you want to be?"

Dwight: "No." *blank stare and waits for next question*

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.
Wow. Once again you Magic fans cry and blame the refs for your loss. Howard fouls out because he's a graceless brute. And tell me something, what's with the elbow throwing EVERY SINGLE GAME from this neanderthal? He doesn't deserve to get fouls? The guy should be sitting for the entire game 6 after the elbow he threw tonight and the only reason he's not is because it didn't connect. Howard is a thug. That's the reason he gets fouls. Get ready to watch your team lose in 7. Then you can sit in Van Grumbly's lap and cry with him and the other LOSERS! Bwaaaahaaaa!!! Call the Waaaambulance!! Go Cavs!!!

Not a good game tonight. This team is slowly starting to figure out how to play us. That is never good and it's time to get rid of them. The winner Saturday wins the series.
Couldnt agree with you more on Saturday night Mark. Cant let Lebron get a triple double again. When he gets the other teamates envolved, the cavs are dangerous. I lost track of how many open 3s that Gibson and Williams had tonight. We cant let that happen again. West played exceptionally well tonight too, I dont expect that to happen on saturday night. Lebron goes for 40plus again, that favors us alot. Just cant let everyone else run all over us like happened tonight. They had as many offensive weapons as we did tonight.

Dang won........ cant believe I misspelled that one.
The bottom line Cleveland hit 10 of their first 11 shots but then we become the dominate team again. Cleveland fans can talk all they want but this is the first time in 3 years they have won a game in double digits against us. That is not a good stat for you guys. See you in Orlando .......... do you guys really think you have a chance???????

The Magic need to get a big lead in game 6. That is their only chance to win. They to get it to where the refs really can't be much of a factor. Just like they did in game 7 in Boston.

But the Magic seem to relax too much when they have any kind of a lead...game or series. They seem to play their best ball when they are behind..and mainly on the road.

That is why I think they will come out complacent again in game 6 as the Cavs will be the ones who are aggressive early.

And now with the other players heating up for Cleveland things are not looking good at all whatsoever for the Magic.

The one thing we all feared the most about this team during the whole season will be the thing that comes back to bite them in the rump and is the reason why I called for the Cavs to win this series in 7...and that is...NO KILLER INSTINCT. None.

Orlando be mad. Be very, very mad. No one is picking you to win. No one thinks you belong with the elite teams of LA and Cleveland. To the experts you are this year's Phil Mickleson. They are writing you off. That jerk from ESPN (insert name here) has said you don't have what it takes to get the job done. So how does it feel when NO one is expecting you to win?
Be mad, be very, very mad.

Guys, don't take the bait of CharlesB222 and the Cleveland trolls. I've seen a lot of replies and you're playing into their hands. We're better than them and ignoring their desperate posts will drive them crazy.

He opened up the game by nailing the 3. Then he missed UGLY on another and I had a feeling he would keep shooting and keep missing.

We have proven that we can beat this team many times this year already. We were down 17 after the 1st and came back on them. If we come out strong the whole game 6 we will close them out.

Game 6 will be ours! GO MAGIC!!!

Thanks for visiting us. This has been a good series with several heart attack games. I certainly dont want another game 7 but it would be a tough game. See you Saturday.

Again it was the $(*&@#%$ referees letting Lebron do whatever he wants to do driving it to the hoop and calling fouls on whoever is standing there waiting on him. I doubt if the Cavs will get that kind of "home cooking" refereeing in Orlando on Saturday nite. We shall see..........
GO MAGIC !!!!

This article makes it sound like the Magic are on their last leg. But we're still up 3-2. So what...the Cavs won another game. Saturday night will be a big win for the Magic in OUR house! And O-town will rock that night while LeBron and the Cavs will start their summer vacation and probably go to Disney World...because lets face it, there ain't much to do in Cleveland. Saturday night, Cavaliers will change their name to Cadavers because they will be dead!

Mark think about it. The League is against the Magic. The refs are against the Magic. LeBron can score at will...legitimately and with the help of the zebras. The Magic do not do well when they have a seemingly comfortable lead..either in a game or in a series...they get way too complacent. Look at tonight for example. Easy call to make. In addition to this the Magic live and die by the 3 point shot while the Cavs can always get easy baskets with Mr. Everything.
