Williams guarantees Cavs' series win over Magic

Here are some excerpts from the cbssports.com article:

Williams remains confident.

"They deserve respect," he said. "They are a good team. But we are the best team in basketball. I don't feel that they've had to adjust to us one time in the series."

"Guarantee we're going to win the series? Yeah, yeah," he said. "We are down 2-1. But there is nobody on this team and definitely not myself that says we are not going to win this series. Yeah, it is going to be tough. We know that. We get this game tomorrow, go home, still got home-court advantage.

"We just got to go out there and play,"(Dwight) Howard said. "We can't worry about what other guys are saying."

******************************************************************************************************************************************** The Magic, even though they lead the series 2-1 and are playing at home tonight for Game 4, are a 1 1/2 point underdog.

The oddsmakers have had no clue about this series, as the Magic have soundly beaten the point spread in all three games.

Gametime is at 8:30 Eastern and will be televised on TNT.

    As if the Magic don't already have enough motivation to win this series!

    At some point in the series, maybe even tonight, I expect LeBron James' supporting cast of West, Williams, and Ilgauskas to start shooting the ball a little better.

    Even if they do, I still don't believe the Cavs can beat the Magic because of the Magic's overall depth and all-around matchup problems they have given the Cavs throughout the series.

    Pietrus off the bench has been a big factor in the Magic's success; the Cavaliers don't have anyone on their bench who has been a major factor at all in this series.

    Yea mike i agree,when the magic play to their potential they completely out class the cavs. But the key is getting a good performance from our PG and our perimeter scorers. Dwight is gonna be dwight and dominate the paint,but the other guys have to realize that the only way theyll win tonight is if they remember that they can go to the hoop too. The cavs wont shoot as many three's this game which means they wont miss as many,playing possession basketball is their only chance and if we choose to shoot jumpers and are only getting one shot at the rim the cavs can win this game. Ball movement and execution will be huge for the magic,cleveland has no choice but to get more physical and go to the basket on their end of the floor,that will put them in position for offensive rebounds and slow down the game which is how they can win.
