Cavs drop a heartbreaker...

ORLANDO, FL - The Cavs came out strong tonight, but simply couldn't keep up the intensity in the second half to hold off the Magic. It didn't help matters that these assholes couldn't miss, and shot 31 three pointers, cashing in on 11 of them. Wally Sczerbiak played a spirited first half, and when's the last time you remember seeing 4 consecutive possessions with a "Wally Iso" play called?...had to be some time in middle school. Lebron played a terrible game, going 10 of 27 from the floor, but this is mostly in part to my pregame article jinxing him in this contest.

Tiger Woods was in attendance, and was sporting the first Nike shirt ever made. He must have been happy with the way his hometown squad played, and is probably also happy to be going home to one of the hottest girls on the planet right now. Mike Brown was t'd up in the 3rd quarter after LeBron got fouled for the 50th time and didn't get the call, and it was all downhill from there. The Magic went on a 12-0 run at the end of the 3rd quarter and into the 4th, and the Cavs never recovered. Tarence Kinsey, who's packing a pair of bird legs that rival only those of Daffy Duck, was injured late in the game after valiantly tripping over himself, which adds to the depth problems that the Cavs have been dealing with of late.

It should be nice to get Big Z back tomorrow night against the helpless Clippers, who recently got Baron Davis and Marcus Camby back from injuries. Like I said earlier, this was a tough game for the Cavs, and things will be different next time they play with their full squad. On a positive note, I picked the Magic in ESPN's Streak for the Cash tonight, and don't look now but somebody's got a 3 game streak going!
