The Orlando Magic, in whom almost nobody believed after they fell behind the Boston Celtics, 3-2, in the Conference Semifinals, are poised to take a 3-1 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Conference Finals. The Cavs, apart from league MVP LeBron James, have been unable to establish any sort of offensive rhythm. Meanwhile, the team's defense has mostly failed to take away the Magic's versatile offensive arsenal. In spite of all that, Cavs guard Mo Williams has guaranteed Cleveland will win tonight's game, and eventually the series.
Dwight Howard says he's approaching this game as though it's a Game 7. The Cavaliers might take a similar stance tonight, because if they lose, their season might as well be over. But given the way Williams has run his mouth in this series, he might guarantee the Cavs win the NBA Finals, the World Series, and the next season of Survivor, even after a loss tonight.
As always, the game tips at 8:30.
