The Magic are gonna get robbed tonight by the refs man I can already tell, expect Howard to be sitting on the bench with 3 fouls in 7 mins because that's the only way he Cavs have a chance.

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.

Fuckin' 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.

It's because officiating isn't just about who gets more freethrows.

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.

mo and delonte really need to step up.

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.

The orlando sentinel ran a story this morning about the Refs doing tonights game. It's Steve Javie and crew - basically, when they ref, the magic are 7-0.
