The Lakers wont win in Orlando.
I've always had a small feeling Phil's teams lose some games in the finals on purpose to win the championship at home. Looking back at Phil, when he's got a 2-0 lead with homecourt advantage in the Finals, he tends to "give up" 2 games on the road to win it all at home. 1995-96 HC advantage against Seattle, won 2-0 in lopsided affairs, lost 2 in Seattle lopsided and won 1, finished at home with a W in Game 6. 1996-97, HC advantage against Utah, won 2-0 to start, lost 2 and won 1 away, finished at home with a W. 1999-2000 was the next time they had HC advantage with a 2-0 start against the Pacers, lost 2 games on the road, won 1 on the road and finished at home. Only anomaly was the Nets series, which came after a tough 7 game series against the Queens in 2000-01. In the road losses, it seemed like the effort wasn't there if they already won one on the road and effort was somewhat there when they hadn't won one on the road.
Isn't he saying he has to do the opposite of crying? Playing through it? Hate to burst your bubble....
Sorry bubble not burst. He's whining about being for forced to play a man's game. Howard so big ,so tough..it not fair. Kobe should smack him with his jutted jaw.
Regan, of those Bulls' victories on the road, which ones occurred in game four? It seems the most logical that if they are going to ramp it up for one game, it's going to be game four... then they will take game five off... probably go check out Disneyworld with the family, won't bother practicing, make sure nobody gets hurt for game six...
Right, and Orlando didn't lose game 2 when they easily could have won.
This mentality from Laker fans is nauseating.
Down to -2. I'm gonna take it.
Less than 2 hours until the Magic show!!!
Cool, Gina Marie's singing the anthem again, we haven't lost a playoff game that she did. Anybody see that kick *** underhanded shot into the rim by Dwight Howard from midcourt in pregame warmups? Sweet Let's get it done tonight Magic!!!
I just bought them as well for a small amount.
Orlando wins tonight 106 - 92
BTW..the Magic's entrance absolutely SUCKS.
The Heat has them there.....LOL
Yeah, it's not the coolest one out there is it, more stuff for our team to work on. I always liked the Bulls entrance in the Jordan era, that one gave me goose bumps.
GOD DAMN IT!
I knew.it. My instincts told me this was Orlando's game..and all I did was buy them for a C.
...Orlando has this one, I think. yes it is the 1st quarter now...but the pace is there...the Lakers are getting called for rebounding fouls and Howard is asserting himself...ALL VERY GOOD signs for the magic.
Orlando just looks like a winner in this game.
I feel like I am losing money by not betting more on them.
Yeah not too shabby for a Stan Van Gundy coached team huh?
You should be up by 30 instead of 10. It's SVG's fault.
We're doing good buddy, we can win this game
The lead is disappearing in front of my eyes....and its all Ariza
I'm so tired of the announcers calling bad calls..."that's a tough call"

Jesus Christ makes an appearance in orlando....
you Magic fans have now been blessed.
Cool interview by Wade, that guy is always a class act. No question.
Come on Magic!!! Hang in there!!!!!
Come on Magic, don't you quit dammit! We can do this!!!!
Who is the better "hustle, nuasance" player?
Pietrus or Posey?
I say Posey. Although Pietrus is getting there.
Nice rejection by Howard and the three point play on the other end.
Howard is a man.
You guys are just resilient. Sounds like a SVG coached team.
Howard landed on Bynum...man...
Annnnnd Howard misses both free throws
Tied up...4.6 to go...
Nice defense Orlando
They have all the momentum.
Edit: Unreal shot
Kobe just elbowed Nelson in the chops...no foul there...
The NBA...WWE...only on ABC...
well this game is on DH. He makes 1 of 2 free throw attempts this game is over.

llama vs. gorilla
Damn, nice job by the Lakers, Fisher's shot at the end of regulation sealed the game. I don't care, I'm still not giving up on my team until I see Kobe holding the trophy with purple and yellow confetti raining down on him. Until them, we're still in it.
How many free throws did they miss? 5-point lead with under a minute left. All Howard has to do is hit one free throw to ice it. He misses both.
They had their chance and they choked.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles has earned it. Every time Orlando has given them a chance, they've taken advantage of it.
At least it's been a good series overall.
