Orlando +7.5 at Cavs - Game 5

    Well, they survived a major gut check all around. Several guys had nice games, so that has to help the confidence. Also feels good that Orlando's shooting came back to earth at last. I feel much better going into Game 6 than I thought I would despite another major lead blown. LBJ is playing like he really wants this.

    Ahh Jerry West now there was a shooters shooter, absolutely one of the best ever.
     
  3. Finally they are working thru the screens, getting over top of them...Forcing Orlando into tougher shots...

    Then on offense with getting the ball to LBJ right at the foul line...That is what the Bulls did with Jordan, and what the Heat and Celtics do alot with Wade and Pierce...Doesn't waste as much energy...allows us to work the clock and then give him a little rest...

    BTW what happened to DWest the announcers have not said anything and you can tell he was hurting while out there...

    Now the rims get a little tighther in Orlando for the Magic...We have to make sure to take our jump shots to Orlando...

    We are still in this shit fellas!!!!

    Yeah, I was looking through the comparison and I'm thinking- okay, LeBron matched him the first game, oooh outscored by 17 the second, hm, 3 more the 3rd, wow 4 in the 4th, and here tonight in game 5 West has him by 6. 30 points. I thought LeBron's Conference Finals performance has been amazing...West...

    Remarkable.

    OTOH, different style of play and LeBron is filling up the stat sheet across the board.

    They covered since Lewis missed that last 3 - frickin' Vegas calls 'em close.

    That was the only 1 of 10 vBets that I lost on this game.

    The first one game season is over with... lets move onto the next one and win that one now. That has to be the focus, we can't look to a game 7.

    Way to close it out. +11 in the fourth quarter. I give the Cavs all the credit in the world for getting their shit together after it looked like they had rolled over.

    Yet another great game by LeBron, and finally some contributions from surrounding players.

    Now go win the next one!

    I actually really like the Cavs' chances in Game 6. Orlando's shooting has come back to earth and the supporting cast woke up. Plus, both games in Orlando were tightly contested. If they pull that off, there's no fucking way LBJ lets them lose Game 7 at home. No chance in hell.
