ECF Game 6 preview

The Magic will have their best chance to eliminate Cleveland and advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995 as they will play Game 6 in front of what should be an enthusiastic and loud Amway Arena crowd. Gametime is at 8:30 and will be televised by TNT.

The Magic are 2 point favorites.

Here is the complete game preview from Yahoo! Sports.

Congratulations to the LA Lakers, who will be representing the Western Conference in the NBA Finals, with a surprisingly easy 119-92 romp at Denver in Game 6.

The Lakers will be a formidable foe for either the Magic or Cavaliers. They would be definitely favored to beat the Magic, and would have the home court advantage over the Magic. LA might even be favored to beat Cleveland, even though the Cavs would have home court.

The Magic would save themselves a lot of trouble for preparing for a Game 7 in Cleveland if they can take care of business tonight in Orlando.

    After seeing the Magic make history in Boston by defeating the Celtics in Game 7 a few weeks ago, after the Celtics had been 32-0 in franchise history after leading a series 3-2, I believe they can win a Game 7 in Cleveland, but I sure hope it doesn't come to that.

    I highly doubt that the Cavs will outshoot the Magic from the field, the three point line, and the free throw line in Game 6 as what happened in Game 5. That being said, if the Magic don't play better (and smarter) than they did in Game 5, especially in the fourth quarter, the Magic will be in danger of losing.

    The home crowd was a huge lift for the Cavs in Game 5, just as it should be for the Magic in Game 6.

    Here's hoping Orlando will be celebrating a trip to the NBA Finals later on tonight... Go Magic!

    Couple things tonight. (1)It all starts with our PG position. RA has to be aggressive from the start and mix in some drives to the basket where he can dump the ball off to dwight. (2)We saw that cleveland used labron to guard hedo in the fourth and did a pretty good job,SVG needs to adjust to that and get hedo the ball on the move. (3)Turnovers and running the offense will be really important,we have to be better at executing down the stretch even if the refs are making horrible calls. The magic got here playing a certain way offensively and they're not gonna change now so if they wanna win tonight it'll be because they've won the game on the defensive end. I personally think the magic could win this game going away. GO MAGIC!!!

    I think the announcer should not be narrating this game, he is definitely not impartial as he cheers "yes" everytime the Cavaliers get a free throw from a Magic fowl. An announcer should not be partial, and I have heard nothing but partiality from this announcer throughout this series!
