Tonight is Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic.

The Magic are just 1 win away from going back to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1995. They took a 3-1 lead on Tuesday with a thrilling 116-114 over time victory against Cleveland. Dwight Howard scored 27 points for Orlando, while Rafer Alston finished with 26.

The Cavs on the other hand have to win three straight, but it’s not impossible. It’s been done before. They must rely on strong defense and rebounding, and lots of LeBron. Mo Williams needs to score 20+ points for this team to really be effective.

UPDATE: LeBron James put on an incredible performance in the fourth quarter to will the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 112-102 victory against the Orlando Magic in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference championship series. Read the full story here.
