Did the Magic Snatch Home Court Advantage?

As the final buzzer sounded and a last second attemp by Mo Williams to win the game for Cleveland bounced astray, the announcers commented, “and Orlando Steals home court advantage from Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers with a game one victory in Cleveland.”  Now it may be true57045606 that the Magic did steal the first game in the Eastern Conference Semi-finals against  “King James” and a Cavaliers team who was winning by 16 at half, but I beg the question: Did Orlando really steal home court advantage? It seems so, after all now if the Magic win their three home games in this series they will beat Cleveland no matter what. However it is interesting to consider that if the series does go to seven games it will be in the King’s court in Cleveland. How curious? “The Magic steal game one”… yet if it goes seven its where Lebron wants it to be. What are your thoughts?

  1. I don’t think that the Magic stole home court advantage! the Cavaliers are a strong team and can definitely pull off at least one win in Orlando. The only game where the home court advantage could truly play a role is if the series goes to game 7, in which case the Cavaliers would have the home court. The Magic had a strong showing tonight, but i predict James and the Cavs to take the series!

  2. I have to agree with Dave. It is very rare for a team to win all its home games when the teams are closely matched. The cavs are definitely going to win at least one game in Orlando and will be sent back to Cleveland for game 7 in which case you have to bet on Lebron.
