Last night was a very entertaining game 1 of the NLCS between the Phillies and Dodgers. Cole Hamels didn’t have another great outing but the Phillies were able to pull off a game 1 victory by the score of 8-6. Carlos Ruiz, Dwight Howard, and Raul Ibanez were clutch in the Phillies victory as Brad Lidge got the save. I know it’s a little late on the post but game 2 is actually on right now.

Orlando Magic Reach 2009 NBA Finals

Wow. I am actually writing a blog entry that says the Magic are headed to the NBA Finals. They finished the Cavs off last night and made it look easy. It was so easy that Lebron was mad and left the court and then arena with no handshakes or press conference. Congrats to the Magic and their leader Dwight Howard for reaching the finals. Lakers or Magic?

Orlando Magic One Win Away From Finals

I can’t believe I’m saying this but the Orlando Magic are one win away from reaching the NBA Finals. Last night, they were just a little too much to handle as they defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-114 in overtime to take a 3-1 series lead. Again, Lebron James had a big game, but no one else (besides Delonte West’s 17 points) stepped up from the Cavs. The Cavs are one loss way from being eliminated after starting the playoffs 8-0. Orlando had 17 3-pointers in the game. Dwight Howard scored 27 and had 14 rebounds in the win. What do you think the outcome of the series will be?

Orlando Takes A 2-1 Series Lead Over Cleveland

dm_0905124_schn

Well, I know at least one person to say that Orlando is the only Eastern Conference team that can shut down Cleveland right now and from yesterday’s game and even the rest of the series, it seems true. Orlando played hard last night and even when it was close they were still able to pull away enough to win the game 99-89. Players like Courtney Lee, Rafer Alston, and Hedo Turkoglu stepped up last night and were key parts of the equation for the Magic win. Dwight Howard scored 24 and added 9 rebounds. Lebron James scored 41 but was mainly a one man team last night. Cleveland is in some trouble.

ORLANDO FORCES A GAME 7

Well Orlando looked out of it after what happened from game 5. Game 6 in Orlando was another story. Dwight Howard got the ball, like he was complaining about after game 5, and had 23 points and 22 rebounds in the 83-75 victory over the Boston Celtics last night. Rashard Lewis had 20 points and Hedo Turkoglu had a key 3-point shot to seal the deal for Orlando. So there now is a game 7 for this weekend. Being that game 7 is going to be in Boston, I have a feeling Boston might take it and would be surprised is Orlando stuns them.

Orlando Holds On To Defeat Boston Celtics In Game 1

nba_a_magicwin_576

Orlando was not trying to do the whole overtime thing that Chicago and Boston went through in the first round, last night. The Magic had a decent lead throughout the game until Boston started creeping back in to the game. Dwight Howard had 16 points and 22 rebounds in the 95-90 win over Boston. Orlando’s lead was at 28 points at one point and the Celtics just went on a run in the fourth quarter narrowing it down to about 5 points, which the final score ended up being a 5 point victory. Paul Pierce scored 23 points and Rajon Rondo added 14 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists. The series is now 1-0 Orlando and they also have home-court advantage.
