Must-win for the Cavs. Mo Williams needs to step up. Please Mo, you're an All-Star, play like one.

If Lebron's teamates don't show up they're going to lose again, and Brown really needs to give Wally some minutes, I believe he is the trump card for this series

If the Cavs are going to win this one, and they pretty much have to, they will need to start hitting some damn threes. All throughout the regular season they were 2nd best in the league at that, but so far this series they've been throwing bricks.

This is a very important game for both teams. Cleveland obviously doesn't want to trail 3-1 and Orlando doesn't want to give up homecourt advantage.

Couple of things to observe:

1) Fouls on Dwight. If I was him, I would make sure to avoid getting any foul calls because we all know the refs are going to try and get him on the bench as quickly as possible.

2) Fouls on Orlando. I'm sure LeBron is planning on attacking the rim every chance he gets. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets 30 FTA in this game.

3) Cavaliers stepping up. Mo Williams, Delonte, Big Z, Wally, all of these guys will get open shots as a rest of LeBron's attacking. They either make it or the series is pretty much over.

Magic are going to be playing 5 on 8...

I actually think they should shoot less threes. They tend to start firing when they're up by 10+, which is a stupid idea. They need to shoot timely threes.

I love to see the Cavaliers play physical in the 2nd half. The Magic are out rebounding the Cavs, and they couldn't defender their perimeter shooters.

Why the need for bull**** statements like that in a series where Orlando has gotten more foul calls and more freethrows ? The reffing hasn't been good, but it hasn't favored the Cavs unduly either.

BigTicket, 24 free throws for one man. It's impossible as I was told after the 2006 finals by Mavs, Cavs and Laker fans. It had to be rigged.

I'm not saying it's rigged at all, since I have a little more class then some Cavs, Mavs and Laker fans, though its funny how things change when the balls in the other court.

He shouldn't have gotten 24 freethrows, but then the Magic shouldn't have gotten 51. The refs just called a ****ty game overall.

As for the 06 finals that was not really the same thing. Here you have Magic fans complaining even though they're getting more calls than the Cavs, back then you had Mavs fans complaining when they were getting far less calls than the Heat.

I see where you stand by how quick you are to turn the point of discussion.

As a non bias supporter watching the game and the game thread, I noticed a lot of the complaining from others who are in the same boat as me to be complaining about the calls going in the Cavs favor.

And if you want to play the he say she say game, I can simply say that in the Dallas-Miami series, the refs didn't try to target the other player to get him fouled off like they have in the ORL-CLE series. Orlando without Howard are nothing.

No, there were a few general NBA fans such as StroShow, and others shocked at the calls.

There's a reason Orlando got so many free throws and it's Dwight Howard. They tried to send him to the line so he could miss, but the guy just kept hitting them.

BigTicket
05-26-2009, 02:01 AM
I was shocked at the calls too, some of them were just ****ing bad. Like the block Dwight got on Lebron towards end that was called a foul, even though it was completely clean.

But there were ****ty calls going the other way too, people just don't pay as much attention when Lebron isn't involved in the play.

Must-win for the Cavs. Mo Williams needs to step up. Please Mo, you're an All-Star, play like one.

I think they should have really pushed for that wally trade for VC so Mo could be a third option a guy like Vince would really help alot of the problems the cavs are having now, and they'd only really give up Wally. Matter of fact they should of traded him for anyone, because now we can see where they would have needed some extra help.

Anyways this is a must win for the Cavs, I expect a big game from Lebron but it's weird to say that since he puts up big games every night, I guess it's time for someone to step up, I think Pavlovich could really help, obviously everyone knows mo and west need to step up.

ANBU21
05-26-2009, 08:45 AM
Actually, I don't see this game being called that bad. I think the refs could have gotten a talking to. on 1st and 10 last night they actually talked about game 3 Refs and it wasn't pretty for the League. They pretty much said what everyone is saying. Some players (LeBron) are getting preferential treatment while others (DHoward) are getting screwed. But with that being said, D12 NEEDS to stop picking up stupid fouls. The times he does actually commit a foul its damn right stupid, I always think to myself "WTF!".

Anyways, I really think this one will be much closer but the Magic still pull if off. I don't see Hedo going 1-11 again.

I just want to see more consistent officiating on BOTH sides. Noone wants to watch a free throw contests. From the Cavs' point of view, I hope they run with the smaller lineup, and they have GOT to find a way to close out on those outside shooters.

I hope Mike Brown makes the neccesary adjustments. He's really stuggled from a coaching perspective this series.

****in' 86 free throw attempts last game between both teams. That's ridiculous. Almost half the the Magic's points were freethrows and almost a third were the Cavs.

It's just hard to watch. Games drag on. I can understand how the casual fan can totally lose interest in this kind of stuff. The NBA needs to take a serious look at how games are officiated. I think back to teams like the Knicks/Jazz, etc in the 90s...........teams like that never would've survived in this era.

Just let them play ball. I mean that from both sides, as that foul on Howard at the end of the game was an absolutely terrible call.

I know, I was just like "Jeez, let us lose the game already please." After that foul was called I turned it off. I couldn't stand to watch anymore freethrows, especially in a losing effort.

If you put the best defensive player on the bench, then the Magic defense isn't as good. This will allow King James to do whatever the hell he wants.

I think Delonte and Big Z being in foul trouble is the same as Dwight. I see the reffing is only good when the Cavs win.

You act like Gortat isn't doing a good job filling in. The only way the Cavs benefit Dwight on the bench is if they can score and as far as the Cavs team goes, it hasn't been happening. COME ON CAVS STOP DISAPPOINTING ME AND PLAY.

Courtney Lee has been a major problem for us.

I remember the Lakers / Pistons finals where people kept saying "this game the Lakers will play like they REALLY can" and blow out the Pistons. And it never happened. The Cavs are a day away from Cav fans saying "in Game 5 you will see the real Cavs and we will win 3 straight" and the rest of us knowing they are done.

Everything screams to me CAVS, tha they won't allow themselves to fall down 3-1 BUT the problems the Cavs have are their supporting cast looks absolutely terrified to be out there, Mo included despite his off court fake bravado. There is not necessarily a reason that changes.

The Cavs are one miracle shot away from tonight being the Magic sweeping them.

i want lebron to only score 30 tonight and one of these guys get 20 and the other gets 15 because thats the only way the cavs can win(you don't get defended against unless ur making ur shots, so stop putting all the pressure on lebron)

and big Z u better defend dwight howard well.

Tonight is the Cavs season basically. I do not see this team coming back from 3-1 against this Orlando team.

LeBron cannot score 40ish points and win. He doesn't impact the game as much when he scores that much.

But yea, Delonte, Mo, and Big Z need to remember how to shoot a basketball.

Possible, but not likely. The Magic outplayed us on both ends in 2 of the 3 games so far. If they do that tonight, unless Mike Brown can do a miracle, the series is pretty much over.

^^ That is not true. They've yet to have a great game. Last game they had way too many turn overs, Hedo was 1-11, D12 only played 28min and Rashard was in foul trouble second half of the game. Believe it or not the Magic can do a lot more to improve.

Magic only played two great games so far these playoffs. Game 6 vs Philly and Game 7 vs Boston.

But I still have this bad feeling my Magic might lose tonight. I just don't see the Cavs playing so horrible 4 games in a row... I'm not saying if the Cavs have a good game the Magic can't win. I'm just getting a weird feeling... :ohwell:

Gortat comes up big on D, Lee lights it up, Alston hitting 3s, Pietrus has been consistent the whole series.


The Magic are a very good team that can do away without 1-2 players. The Cavs on the other hand, I can't say yet because we have not showed up to a game this series yet, except Lebron.

The theory that Orlando is just playing unconcious and Cleveland poorly isn't really true. Orlando is shooting a high pct of 3's becaue they are shooting a ton of open 3's. No one is going off for 30+, etc. And on the Cleveland side the supporting cast is sucking but Lebron is putting in 40-8-8 a game. Even for him that's on the high side.

True but even if the Cavs show up, I still don't see them beating the Magic if all the starters are able to have a good game. And those role players have been solid most of the season and all of the Playoffs, although CLee was a big surprise.

Stan is too good of a coach to keep 4 guys on James if he knows the outside shooters are Hot and playing like the have all year long. But even if Mo gets hot it doesn't change the mismatch advantage the Magic have.

Yes Magic have a clear mismatch bigger guards, SFs and PFs with guard skills, and Dwight. I even consider Gortat a mismatch for Z, and he does a good job limiting lebron with dwights out.

Games 1 and 2 came down to the wire, and in game 1 this is exactly what I mean by the Cavs not showing up. Same goes in game 3. 3-4 of those open jumpers made and the game swings in the Cavs favor.

I think if both teams played their A+++ game, the Magic would win, but that's not possible. The Cavs A+++ game is defense, which would contradict letting the Magic play their A+++ game. I don't think the Cavs are going to come out with their A+++ game this series, but if they can get their scoring act together they should be able to come back on the Magic for a bit

This is what people were saying about the Cavs before this series:


--Mo Williams is a legit #2 option, the guy who can take the pressure off LeBron and create his own shot opportunities
--they have an amazing defensive philosophy and are an impenetrable force on that end of the floor
--Mike Brown has improved as a coach
--LeBron has developed his perimeter game and defense to elite levels
--Zydrunas Ilgauskas has that outside jumper that can pull away the other teams big man away from the basket
--Delonte West can get to the rack and get up good shot opportunites
--Ben Wallace, Joe Smith, Wally, etc are all key vets that have tons of experience, as they have started for various teams in their careers

Now, all of a sudden, it's the following. This is what people are discussing:

--Mo Williams is a complete byproduct of playing with LeBron, and is a total joker
--their defense is completely overrated
--LeBron can't shoot from the perimeter, and his defense is overrated
--Z is washed up and should retire
--West can't step it up
-the bench is useless and washed up

The truth is somewhere in the middle here. Cleveland did alot of those wonderful things against average/mediocre teams, but hasn't stepped it up against the elite. I refuse to believe that all of these negative things will continue, because regardless of the competition, you don't win as many games as they did by accident. In years past, they didn't beat the teams that they were supposed to. It says something about their improved mentality that they were able to get motivated on a nightly basis against teams that they were clearly better than.

I know Orlando is a bad matchup for us. That's been shown. However, I know what kind of team the Cavs are. I watched most of their games. They didn't get here by accident. It was a bit too easy for them these first 2 round. Now, they are dealing with some real adversity. I believe that they have the mental makeup and ability to rise up and overcome. This is a tough minded team with veteran players that have been there/done that.

i find it troublesome that Mo allows himself to be so easily distracted. he is constantly involved in extra curricular stupidity. He THREW the ball at Dwight. WTF are you thinking if you do something like that? I understand if after that he just kicked ass, but he didn't. He needs to shut up and play.

So the game tonight, how do you think David Stern is going to win the game for the Cleveland David Sterns?


A) Artificially put Dwight Howard in foul trouble then foul him out
B) 25 freethrows to Lebron + 15 freethrows to random bench scrub ala Boobie Gibson in 2007 vs Pistons
C) Suspend Lewis, Hedo, Pietrus for stepping on the court celebrating a basket from the bench
D) All of the above
E) other

Place your bets lads, the winner gets repped at the end of the game!

At least Lebron's season will end before his stats can suffer significantly (ie. after he actually plays good teams).

Outside of game 1 he has been pretty bad this series. Game 2 he single handedly let the Magic take the lead in the fourth (1-5 and 3 TOs before the fluke shot), and game 3 he sets a couple of dubious records (lowest FG% for a player scoring more than 40 points in playoffs, second highest FT attempts ever by a perimeter player in a playoff game). He isn't looking good this game either. Hopefully he shows up though, I want to enjoy a classic Lebron performance.

I'm wondering the same thing. It just goes back to the horrible inconsistencies of the officials. Pietrus is hand-checking, bodying, and trying to rough up LeBron... Even off of the ball. Yet, they are letting it go, while calling ticky-tack touch fouls on other guys (on both teams).

So far in this game the officiating is a little bit better to me (except the two quick defensive three seconds in like the first minute of the game that made me go "What the hell?"). You can pretty much tell Williams and West came out more aggressive offensively in this game, which is great.

I like the second unit lineup change. I believe they went West, Pavlovic, Szczerbiak, James, Wallace for a little while. It's good to see the Cavs still have legitimate fight left in them. Let's pull out a win boys and get home court back. :applause:

If rooting against my own team is wanting a fair officiated game called. I guess that's what it is. I'd rather the Cavs earn a win, not for it to be given to them.

It's good to see the Cavs still have legitimate fight left in them. Let's pull out a win boys and get home court back. :applause:

Cavs always have a fight left in them, that's the one thing you never have to worry about as a fan of theirs.

that commercial was shown yesterday, I still like the powder commercial the best.

IMO, the best one is the one about Kobe's rings. LeBron, have you seen my 3 championships rings ? They represent the 3 championships that I myself have won. You probably don't know what they look like :oldlol:

Good to see lildamonjones finally contributing. He's been a big time disappointment. He had injury issues, but even when healthy, when he's not knocking down those shots, he's a useless player.yes it's very nice to see him knocking down shots but i gotta say, i was still a little worried after he missed that first one

WOW at Cavs fans complaining after what went down last game. This is exactly the problem with the NBA. Fans like you feel entitled to get every single touch foul and create an uproar if you don't get them. Surprisingly, the game has been called very well and I'm cheering on the Cavs too.

Yeah, me too. I want the Cavs to win because they proved they were the best, not because they were given the series. And I too want a well officiated game, but you only focus on the questionable the Cavs have gotten. The Magic also get away with a lot of stuff, yet you don't talk about it. Just like someone who's rooting for the Magic would do.

I agree. It's been the best officiated half so far in the whole series, but seemingly some Cavs fans think it's unfair in the Magic's favor or some fouls aren't getting called for the Cavs? :confusedshrug: I don't know, there were some missed calls here and there, but it's 5x better than the last three games, again minus the two defensive three seconds in the first minute of the game, which is the first time I've seen that in my life or that I can remember.

There's been missed calls on both ends. I didn't bring up any Cavs fouls or Magic fouls. Just that stupid defensive three seconds which I haven't seen happen like that ever to my memory.

Yea, who's complaining? :rolleyes:

LeBron got completely hacked by Howard on that last layup attempt. Amazing the effect the Magic whining in the media has done to these officials.

QFT

That is why coaches like the Hedgehog encourage their beat writers to whine, even after wins.

Meticode is evolving into a pretty unbiased poster where as the usual suspects (above) are becoming more delusional by the day.

Well it's no worse than during the regular season when the Magic got called for a 3 second violation in the last 30 seconds, first time it happened in like 20 years or something :oldlol:

You bring up their bad third quarters, but what about their awesome fourth quarters? They've came back down by double digits so many times this season in the fourth.

When did Rafer Alston become a better shooter than anyone on the Cavs? :(

Pathetic defense, you know you suck when you can't even guard Rafer Alston and you can't even make two easy open jumpers like Mo Williams and Big Z shot.

Orlando right back to shooting over 50%. This is the best perimeter shooting team the league has seen in a while. You give them some decent looks and they kill you.
