Cavs by 7 mid-way through the 3rd quater.
This is another close game. 96-93 Magic with 2:44 to go.
LESS THAN 15 TO GO.....PETRUS MISSES A 3!!!!! LOOSE BALL!!!!! OUT OF BOUNDS!! LAST TOUCHED BY THE CAVS!!!!!! DOWN BY 1 WITH 6.4 TO GO, THE MAGIC WILL GET ONE MORE CHANCE TO WIN THIS GAME!!!!
Orlando calls a 20.
LEWIS MAKES IT AND THE MAGIC ARE UP BY TWO WITH 4.1 LEFT IN THE GAME.
RASHARD LEWIS HITS A 3!!!!!!!!! 100-98 ORLANDO!!!! BUT THERE'S STILL 4.1 TO GO FOR THE CAVS!!!!!! WILL WE SEE ANOTHER CLEVELAND MIRACLE OR CAN THE MAGIC HANG ON THIS TIME?!?!?
LEBRICK GOES TO THE LINE
He makes the first....
LEBRON IS FOULED!!!!!!!! WITH .5 TO GO!!!!!! I DON'T THINK HE HAD A CHANCE TO MAKE THAT EITHER!!! WHAT A BAD FOUL TO TAKE!!!!HE MAKES THE FIRST!!!!!
This is game....
IT ROLLS IN!!!!!!! TIED AT 100!!!!! OH MY!!!!!!!
..... makes the second. Tied game and Magic timeout with .5 left.
I can only imagine how a diehard Cleveland fan felt watching that. Especially seeing as my heart nearly leaped out of my throat watching that...
WHERE'S HOWARDS FOUL? HEADING TO OT!
THE LOB IS BROKEN UP!!!! AND THERE'S NO FOUL!!!!!!!!! OVERTIME IN ORLANDO!!!!
That was certainly an interesting way to end it....
Off-topic: But I found a video with the Beninati "OMG" moment in it. I'll work on getting that up after this game.
Get it up and I will link it tomorrow.
Cavs are in trouble. 109-105 Orlando and the Magic have the ball now.
Dwight Howard is a beast in this overtime period.
And I just found an even better video of the OMG moment!And the Cavs are desparately trying to get back in this thing with under a minute to go!
Howard can't catch a break from the refs.
111-108 Orlando with 30 seconds to go and the Magic have the ball.
Make that 111-109. And Howard is fouled with 21 to go.
Howard makes both! 113-109 with 21 to go! Timeout Cleveland.
Magic by four with .21 second remaining.
Magic force a jump ball! 16.5 to go!
HOLY CRAP! THE REFS ACTUALLY DIDN'T CALL A FOUL ON HOWARD!
Time is running out for Cleveland.
If the Magic make these 2 freebies, it's over.
ONIONS!!!! FOUR POINT LEAD FOR ORLANDO WITH 6.4 LEFT.
And there's the 2nd! Cavs call their last timeout with 6.4 to go.
"Ernie looks very intense as he gets ready." - Marv AlbertErnie Johnson proceeded to yawn.
Huge 3 by LeBron.
LEBRON HITS A 3!!!!!! FOUL WITH 3.2 TO GO!!!Cavs don't have any timeouts, though.
LEWIS MISSES THE FIRST!
Cleveland will have to hit a 3 to win now.
Makes the 2nd! Here we go....
ORLANDO WINS! THEY TAKE A 3-1 SERIES LEAD.
LEBRON ATTEMPTS A HALF COURT SHOT AND IT'S OFF THE BACKBOARD AND NO GOOD!!!!! AND THAT'S IT!!!!! THE MAGIC WIN GAME 3, 116-114!!!
Could somebody please give Craig Sager a normal wardrobe? Thanks!
No team that I ever pull for to win the NBA Championship ever wins. I think I'm a jinx. Really. Just look at Anyone But The Lakers And The Celtics last year and this year, the LeBron and the Cavs, who I really want to see win a championship for Cleveland because I know how they feel (i.e. championship drought with all teams) and just because I really like LeBron, and now they are down 3-1 because of it.Maybe I ought to head out to Modells and buy a Magic jersey and wear that during the (hopefully) live blog on Thursday (that's a jinx of mine as well, just ask McNabb, Dawkins, and T.O.)
Just ask Mr. McMahon for that Lakers jersey he wanted to present to Enos Stanley Kronke...
