Lately I’ve been fond of pointing out the Cleveland Cavaliers amazing home dominance. I’ve used this as my foundation for believing the Cavs would represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals. Whoops.
The Orlando Magic came out and kicked but in Quicken last night, waltzing away with a 1 point victory in the last seconds of the game. Despite a 49 point performance by LeBron James, Orlando takes a lead in the series and maybe most importantly, plants a seed of doubt in the idea that the Cavaliers are pre-ordained to be in the NBA Finals.Eric Drouant
