Default May 20: Magic @ Cavaliers, Game 1 (Round 3)



8:30 PM ET, May 20, 2009
Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH
TNT

Originally Posted by ESPN.com
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -- Mike Malone has always followed his father Brendan's advice. A respectful son, he still calls his dad regularly for guidance on life and hoops.

Those conversations are on hold.

"Now that it's us against them," Mike Malone said with a smile, "I don't plan on talking to him for a little while."

Papa Malone won't be dialing his son's number either.

"We'll probably see each other on the court, and that's it," Brendan Malone said.

There's a family subplot to this season's Eastern Conference final between Cleveland and Orlando. The Malone family is divided. Mike, tracing his father's coaching footsteps, is in his fourth season as an assistant with the Cavaliers while Brendan, Cleveland's interim coach for 18 games at the end of LeBron James' second pro season, is on Stan Van Gundy's staff in Orlando.

With the best-of-seven series set to open on Wednesday night, the younger Malone made an obvious prediction on the outcome.

"There will be a Malone in the NBA finals," he said.

May the best Malone win.

After sitting around for the second time in these playoffs, the series-sweeping Cavaliers, who broomed Detroit and Atlanta into early summer vacations, are expecting a much stiffer challenge from the Magic. Orlando won both of their matchups at home against Cleveland during the regular season, including a 116-87 thrashing on April 3 -- the Cavaliers' worst loss in 90 games.

Cleveland has lost just once since that mauling by the Magic, and that setback came in overtime in the April 15 season finale against Philadelphia, a game James, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Mo Williams sat out to get extra rest for the playoffs.

Cavs win, but it will be close. LeBron had to score over 40 to beat the Magic in Cleveland last time. I think the Cavs will win the game and the series in 6.

In Cleveland, they're going to change the name of a radio station from Majic 105.7 to Cavs 105.7, 'til the series is over.

This will not end well for the Magic. Lebron is going for 45+ tonight.

Sounds about right. Turk's not a great defender, but he's strong enough to avoid being abused too bad, and Dwight's as good a help defender as there is. If Lebron has another 35 10 and 12 type of game, Orlando will be lucky to make it to game five, but if he puts up numbers that are closer to, say, Paul Pierce or Dirk, all bets are off for the series.

The sad part is that's a good/great game for most players in the league.

Yes thanks. As long as no one else posts a game thread I have pictures like that with different players for at least 5 games. I think J.J. Redick will be starting though, I'll have to change that for game 2.

It's kind of sad that 95% of the players in the NBA would die to have that stat line.

If he's coming back down to earth (or struggling), expect him to have 5-6 turnovers too.
