Lakers Advance to NBA Finals, Will Orlando Magic Finish off Cleveland?

Brandon Ribak@reebokforthreeSenior Writer IMay 30, 2009

Congratulations to all the Los Angeles Lakers fans for advancing to the NBA Finals and once again, getting a shot at winning the title!

The Lakers clearly put more effort into winning the last two games of the series and deserved to get the opportunity to capture the finals trophy.

During Game Six, Los Angeles shot a spectacular 57.3 percent from the field, 56.3 percent from three-point range, and a lights out 100 percent from the charity stripe.

Kobe Bryant played just like an MVP, scoring 35 points, dishing out 10 assists, grabbing six boards, and shooting 12-of-20 from the field.

With LA finally able to take a well deserved break, the Orlando Magic have much different thoughts in their mind.

Tonight the Magic will come out, just like every other game they have played thus far (no, they do not look at this game as a Game Seven) and seek to end the night with a win.

After having an off shooting night (32.0 percent from three-point range and 68.0 percent from free-throw-line) and suffering their worst loss of the series (112-102), Orlando will come onto the court with vengeance in their eyes and pure determination pumping in their hearts.

Watching LeBron James put on his own show (dropping a triple-double) and forcing the Magic to become witnesses to his supreme play, Orlando will be more tenacious then ever to end this series violently, once and for all.

In my Cavaliers-Magic Preview article, I predicted the Magic to win this series in six games. Since tonight is Game Six and the series is in favor of Orlando three games to two, I am sticking with my gut prediction.

The game will begin at 8:30 tonight on TNT at the Amway Arena!

Do YOU think Orlando will win tonight? Comment back with your opinion, as always.
