ECF: Game Five Down – The Orlando Magic win at home!

Posted in Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2010 by prolifik1

Boston fans, did you all think this series was a wrap or what? I thought I would start writing about the NBA Eastern Conference Finals too for my blog. This series, like the West, has taken a new turn! A new turn to a better, exciting whole new series!

The Orlando Magic pulled a second straight win, this time at home in Orlando. Just when we thought there was no hope for the Magic, everyone believed it was going to be a sweep! It was great to see everyone on the Orlando Magic team pull it together and play some great defense along with ripping the boards. They were straight killing them!

Dwight Howard was a bit quite in my opinion this series. It’s not the beast that I witnessed last season, but he is indeed trying.  He ended the game tonight for the Magic with 21 points and 10 rebounds; while his partner in crime, Jameer Nelson lead the night with 24 points and 5 assists.

Keep in mind, no NBA team has come from an 0-3 deficit and won the series. The way I see it, there’s always a first for everything! History was made a few weeks back in the NHL by the Philadelphia Flyders by coming from an 0-3 deficit to defeat the Boston Bruins. Ironically, it was a Boston team that blew it, can we see the same in the 2010 NBA Playoffs? Can the Magic be that type of  team? Probably, if they play the way they played these past two games, I wouldn’t doubt them at all.

What looked like an obvious matchup just a few days ago between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics rematch Finals has faded away now. Game 6 between the Boston Celtics and the Orlando Magic is this Friday, the 28th at 5:30pm Pacific/8:30pm Eastern.

Game Four Down: The Lakers head to the Western Conference Championship!!!

Posted in Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2010 by prolifik1

The Lakers have wrapped the series against the Utah Jazz. They went up big and didn’t bother looking behind and put a stomping as they swept the Jazz. The Jazz put up a fight and came close in the 4th, but the Lakers managed to pull away once again.

They now head into the Western Conference Championships against the Phoenix Suns. The Lakers are now 8 wins away from defending their NBA Championship.

Laker fans rejoice!

Game Time: The Los Angeles Lakers vs the Utah Jazz – Game 4

Well folks, it’s that time once again. The Lakers can possibly end the series tonight in Salt Lake City. Laker fans, time to bust out the brooms. Probably sweep? No doubt, possible!

The Phoenix Suns stomped all over Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs! They’re now awaiting the winner of this series, which obviously can be the Lakers. In the East, it seems like the Orlando Magic can be wrapping up that series tonight too against the Atlanta Hawks. With the Boston/Cleveland series, it’s very close. I hate Lebron, so I hope the Celtics can pull it in the end!

Tune in tonight to witness whether the Lakers can turn the lights out and advance to the Western Conference Finals.

Rd2 Game Three Down: One win away from the Western Conference Finals!

Posted in Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2010 by prolifik1

The Lakers pull off a win on the road! This was one very close game and a great one at that! It all came down within the last few seconds. Derek Fisher puts up a final 3 pointer to give them the lead where they were able to hold off the Jazz until the time expired.

This game was pretty much controversial, especially with the Jazz’s last possession; where Derek Fisher was tackled with no call. All good, the Lakers pulled away with a close one! One win away from making it into the Western Conference Championship.

The journey on defending the championship has gotten better.

Game 4 is on Monday in Salt Lake City at 7:30pm Pacific.

Game Time: The Los Angeles Lakers vs the Utah Jazz – Game 3

Posted in Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2010 by prolifik1

It’s game time once again! It’s Game 3! It’s the Los Angeles Lakers facing the Utah Jazz on their home court at Energy Solutions Arena, in Salt Lake City.

The power duo of Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol have been on a consistent basis in getting their points in helping lead the Lakers in two back to back victories back at the Staples Center. If they keep this up, they can wrap this series quickly.

Will Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer step up to take a game at home? Will they have enough to hold the Lakers off tonight?

R2 Game Two Down: Lakers now lead the series 2 games to 0!

Posted in Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2010 by prolifik1

The Lakers pull off another win tonight in Los Angeles! It felt like deja vu all over again. The Lakers were able to repeat Sunday’s performance in tonight’s game. Kobe Bryant scored a similar, 30 points; while Pau Gasol also was in tune with 22pts with a nice, 15 rebounds.

Everything is flowing nicely for the Lakers within this series. Could they grab a win in Utah this weekend, on Saturday? I truly hope so, and I hope they can wrap this series early. It’s time for the champs to defend what’s theirs.
