Dwight Howard's 30 points and Rashard Lewis' 22 proved to be enought in the Magic's Game One victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Howard made Zydrunas Ilgauskas look silly inside with his quick feet, and Lewis continued to hit the outside jumper with consistency.

The go-ahead shot by Lewis in the final seconds was exactly what Orlando needed, and now they have the Cavs' backs against-the-wall.

Cleveland's performance—check that—LeBron's performance was great with 49 points.

But as any person could tell, the fatigue had set in for James, who was a one-man show.

The Cavaliers' prized offseason acquisition of Mo Williams didn't exactly go how it had in the regular season. Williams shot the ball 19 times and only connected on six of those attempts.

By stealing the first game in the Eastern Conference finals, the Magic has to feel a lot more confident knowing if they just play their game, they have the better team.
