Magic win series 4-2

Orlando Magic

Team Page | Roster | Stats

Regular Season Record: 59-23
Head-to-Head Record: 2-1
Last NBA Championship: Never
Last NBA Finals Appearance: 1995
Last Postseason Appearance: 2008

How They Got Here: The Magic walked into Boston Garden and won the first and last games of the series to earn a 4-3 series win over the Celtics. They defeated the 76ers 4-2 in their opening round series and showed some depth in doing it without star Dwight Howard, who was suspended for Game 6.

A Reason To Cheer For The Magic: Orlando was 33-8 and the halfway point of the season, and went on to win their second straight division title. Led by one of the league's most exciting and dynamic players in 23-year-old Dwight Howard, the Magic are seeking their first trip to the NBA Finals since losing to the Rockets in 1995. The Magic have an excellent long-range game and their depth means that anyone on the court can be dangerous at any given time, adding a little unpredictability to their game. They'll need to toughen up from the top down if they are to compete with some of the more physical teams they could meet.

Players to Watch: Dwight Howard, Rashard Lewis, Hedo Turkoglu


Cleveland Cavaliers

Team Page | Roster | Stats

Regular Season Record: 66-16
Head-to-Head Record: 1-2
Last NBA Championship: -
Last NBA Finals Appearance: 2007
Last Postseason Appearance: 2008

How They Got Here: The Cavs are yet to lose a game in the playoffs, having swept the Atlanta Hawks efficiently and ruthlessly in the second round after dropping the Detroit Pistons in four straight to kick things off.

A reason to cheer for the Cavaliers: The team has never won an NBA championship, having come close back in 2006-07 when they made it to the Finals, only to be swept by the Spurs. The Cavs were eliminated by the eventual-champion Celtics in the Conference semi-final last season, and they're hungry to make their second LeBron-era trip to the big show. With the best home record in the NBA, the Cavs are practically unstoppable in Cleveland. The structured style of Cleveland's offence and defence gives them a solid foundational structure to work from for playoff success because it minimizes the likelihood of major meltdowns. The sheer power of LeBron James is enough to change the momentum of any game, and the team's disciplined approach lends itself to post-season success. Look for the Cavs to make a serious run - there's no reason to think otherwise.

Players to Watch: LeBron James, Mo Williams, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Delonte West, Anderson Varejao
