I love to see and hear all of the northern cavs bandwagon riders get upset when they cant continue to win by cheating,notice how the N.B.A cheats for northern teams that play southern teams,with youtube blogging and the internet the conspircy is for more people to see,the ohio fans dont complain because they are receiving the benefits of the cheating coming from the league offices in NEW YORK!
watch and see if lebron wins three in a row monitor the refs.

CLE is going to win 4 straight against us, to win the series 5-3.:-)
Hey numb-nuts! It's a best of seven series - NOT EIGHT! And I HIGHLY doubt that even with crooked referees, the Flopaleers can beat the Magic three straight.

Here's another 'great' ESPN article
- John Hollinger, saying, YES, Cavs CAN come back! And why...
Someone please forward to the Magic, they like being the underdog, and apparently STILL are, even up 3-1.

Gotta admit I am still nervous. The one thing I rely on is that the Magic have responded very well to pressure situations. However these games are pretty close, and if we lose games 5,6 game 7 could be tough. So lets get GAME 5!!!

Here's what I am worried about. The let down. Yeah, Magic won game 4, yeah it was great, but I remember when we were up 3-1 against Detroit and we still lost. I know, I know, it's a totally different team, different era, different players, but man we NEED this one.
for this franchise and for your city (i live in texas but am a magic fan fo' life) the magic must win. scratch, claw, kick - whatever it takes. magic in 5! take it to 'em and show the "experts" (again)

You will never see reshards 3 over and over, it's the magic, but they don't have the respect that they deserve. If it was LeBron who made that 3 it would be played over and over.

Here you go Magic, welcome to the looks like we can't lose the series moment, we here in Cleveland know all about this, I like your over confidence, all these games have been close and could have gone either way, except for game 3 when you guys had it under control in the fourth, come Monday night you in the sunshine state will finally understand what it will feel like to blow a 3-1 lead, after we win tommorrow night, all the pressure on you guys to win Sat. night or face a game 7 up here, and guess what we aren't the tired and hurt Celts, we will see if those shots keep falling when the pressure of closing it out at home or going on the road for game 7. It has been a hell of a series, and quit whining about the officials, you shot 51 free throws in game 3, for a team that lives on the 3 point line that is damn good. This is the year the curse of Cleveland gets reversed. Go Cavs

Umm no. Sorry it is over for the Cavs this year. There will be no magical run.

PSA to Magic Fans,

Congrats on a great series, but this is Cleveland you are playing. Cleveland is cursed because of their racist Indian mascot baseball team (it effects all Cleveland sports) and the Magic are the beneficiaries of this curse.

The Magic will go to the finals and not be able to hit the side of a barn. I mean Rafer Alston with a unintentionally bank-in 3? There is something metaphysical making those shots fall.

Keep talking "buddy" - try to ratchet up the pressure - you know what, the Magic know they have the Cavs by the balls and they will simply play their normal game which should be more than enough to defeat you in the "Q" - the only chance you have is if we play very poorly but we will not play poorly 2 games in a row!!- "Dream On"

All I hope for is that the Magic keep the officials whistles silent with a big lead going into the fourth. Please make it a big league so we can end this thing.
Also, how big was the MP signing now? Pretty much a dud in the regular season and a stud in the playoffs. Who knew?
That was no foul with .5 left by the way. Only Kobe or Labron can get those.

Go Magic!!

That tech on Howard was absolute trash. That has to be rescinded by the league office.
All he was doing was celebrating a tough made basket.
And to think as a result of that technical foul it caused Patrick Ewing to get a tech called on him. Mo Williams hit one of those technical free throws. And the score at the end of regulation ? It was 100-100. Take away the tech free throw and the Magic win 100-99 in regulation.
The league HAS recinded the DH's technical. Now what? What if the Cavs had won?

Yeah I cant watch that play at .5 and really say there was a foul. The analysts watching the game said there was but I dont think there was. Did anyone notice if Barkley was calling out the BS calls again?? or did they shut him up? I taped the game and inside the NBA afterwards but it cuts off during the post game where theyre reviewing the game. That call at .5, Lebron leads with his elbow and knocks Pietrus down and then Lebron trips over him. Ridiculous call. Whatever. We got the win. Our team is just better, Lebron is playing out of his mind and its scary going up against him but if we play our game we will prevail. Lewis has proved hes every bit as clutch as Turk. Alston came up huge when we needed him to. Pietrus has been awesome off the bench. Howard plays great when hes in the game and not in foul trouble.

We need one more game. game 5 in cleveland will be tough but this team responds to challenges every time. Lets go in and make up for game 2.
