ECF Game 3 Sunday night preview

I'm sure that we've all grown tired of seeing countless replays of LeBron James' amazing game-winning 3 pointer in Game 2.

The fact remains the Magic now have the home-court advantage in this series.

The Magic are 1 1/2 point favorites tonight.

Here is the complete game preview from Yahoo! Sports.

    At least we should be able to count on the Magic getting off to a much better start than in the first two games.

    Hopefully, the Magic can continue to exploit their favorable matchups with the Cavaliers along with their deeper bench.

    The Magic need to get D12 involved in the offense again. He only had 8 field goal attempts in Game 2, while he had 20 field goal attempts in Game 1. The Cavs did a lot better job of defending him and fouling him in Game 2.

    RA and Hedo will have to be big again for us to win. Hedo hasnt had a big game yet so he's about due even though this isnt a do or die situation or anything. RA has to be aggressive as well as push the tempo,i dont like mo williams at all and i'd like to see RA take it to him and make him have to play some defense. Hopefully the magic will get off to a good start and ride the wave of emotion to a double digit victory!

    I think that the effect of that last second shot is way too exaggerated. CLE players know at the back of their minds that Magic came back twice on their home turf and could have been up 2-0. They also remember that Magic owned the second half in both games. Magic cannot get complacent though. They have to play aggressive from the start especially in the first game back home. The reason being if they win game 3, game 4 would become do or die for CLE thus putting more pressure on them.

    I agree with Big Figure, something that I failed to notice, that there should have been more pressure on the inbound passer being a much shorter Mo Williams v. Rashard. But that is history now, and should have no effect on the Magic. After all, they got what they needed which is home court advantage.

    Man,the lakers have won twice now by putting pressure on the inbounds passer. I agree its old news but boy it ticks me off that we would give a game away like that,the lakers do it the right way two times and win both. Tonight defense should be the key,if were getting stops we'll be able to get our run game going. Clevelands only chances are to slow it down or go small,so we'll see which way they go.

    Turk and Lewis have had outstanding second halves in both Game 1 and 2, but were virtually non-existent in the first half of both games.

    I'd like to see them both show up for the first half in addition to the second half tonight.

    Alston needs a lot better game tonight than the 3 point, 1 for 7 shooting with 2 assists he put up in Game 2.
