2009 NBA Finals Schedule: LA Lakers vs Orlando Magic

2009 NBA FinalsAfter dominating the Cleveland Cavaliers in the eastern conference finals, Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic will face Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2009 NBA Finals.

It’s the Orlando Magic’s 2nd trip to the NBA finals. Their last finals appearance was way back 1995 versus the Houston Rockets. The LA Lakers on the other hand, will set the franchise record to 30th NBA Finals appearance coming from a loss with Boston Celtics last season.

NBA Finals prediction

NBA Finals Winner
My prediction is – Lakers will win in game 6, a home-court win.

NBA Finals MVP
If Lakers will win the series as predicted, the finals MVP will be Kobe for sure but if it’s the other way around then it is Dwight Howard, no doubt.
