Cleveland Cavaliers: Do They Have What It Takes?

ATLANTA - MAY 11:  LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers walks off the court after a win over the Atlanta Hawks 84-74 in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Semifinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Philips Arena on May 11, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Game Five is tonight, and the Cavaliers will be watching from the comfort of their homes. Completing their second straight series sweep last night against Atlanta was huge, and now they have a few days off before the Eastern Conference Finals begin. The only question that remains in my mind is, who will they play?

The Celtics have had quite a playoff run, as have the Magic. This has been an awesome series. I believe that the winner tonight will win Game Six in Orlando, and win the series right then and there.

Either way, the winner of this series has to face off against the currently unstoppable Cleveland Cavaliers, led by All-Star Forward, LeBron James.

My question now is, do the Cavaliers have the ability to stay focused long enough to be ready for the East Finals, or will this series winner pull off an upset against the Eastern Conference's Finest, and head for the finals.

The West is still undecided. It looks like Denver will be pushing into the West Finals, despite last nights loss to the Mavs. The game after tonight's East game 5 will be perhaps a better one.

Now, should the Cavaliers advance, will they be able to hold off the Western Conference, and hand LeBron his first championship ring? Or will the East have a repeat, potentially the same team. The Questions, in my opinion, will be decided by the two teams who walk off the court tonight with a Win.
