Wow. What a fucking game. (Is it weird that even though I’m pissed-and trust me, I’m pissed- I’m blown away by these games. What a series).
While the Cavs are on the brink, I don’t think they’re done just yet. West and Williams played much better and Cleveland showed they can hang with the Magic in Orlando. If nothing else, this should give the supporting cast a little confidence, no? And they’re returning home (where the fans have already given up hope) so maybe they’ll play a little looser… eh?
At some point I just gotta tip my hat to the Magic, they keep finding ways. Rashard Lewis has hit some monster shots over the course of these four games. They’re role players are playing out of their collective minds.
What the Cavs have to tell themselves is that they can play well in Orlando. If they can take care of their home court, they can take another shot at a game in the Magic Kingdom. They were close tonight. And from there, you just pin your hopes on a “anything can happen” Game 7.
Obviously, things are bleak. But they Cavs aren’t done yet.
(I refuse to feel self pity…. for now).
