nba_g_lewis1_sw_288x324

The series is just as good of a match-up than the Lakers/Nuggets series. Last night was a wake up call for the Cavs. Orlando kept fighting to stay close in the game and went it counted, Rashard Lewis came through. He hit a clutch 3-point shot to steal a win for Orlando in Cleveland. This loss gave the Cavs its third loss of the season at home and first loss of the postseason to them. Dwight Howard scored 30 and Lebron scored 49, but the Magic are up in the series 1-0. This was a very interesting start to this series.

ORLANDO FORCES A GAME 7

howard

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.

BULLS WIN IN 3-OT….FORCE GAME 7

noah

Wow! Who would have thought this series would go to 7 games? Who would have thought the BULLS would give Boston so much competition? Who would have thought that this series was going to have 4 overtime game? Last night the Chicago Bulls were on the brink of elimination but they were not going down. Derrick Rose scored 28 and John Salmons scored 35 for the Bulls. Ray Allen scored 51 for the Celtics. The crazy part is that the game went to three overtime periods before the Bulls could snatch a 128-127 victory over the Celtics and force a game seven to be played on Saturday. Who do you think will win the series?
