Lebron James vs Dwight Howard
One of the most intriguing games of the final month of the season takes place Tuesday night as LeBron James and Dwight Howard try to carry their teams to a key victory at Quicken Loans Arena. Orlando Magic against the almighty Cleveland Cavaliers.
While Cleveland is a league-best 29-1 at home, Orlando has the best road record in the East at 23-10.
Orlando (49-17) is one of the few teams that has had the Cavaliers’ number in recent years, winning seven of the last nine meetings and three straight. The Magic also have won three in a row at Cleveland (53-13).
The Magic won the only meeting with Cleveland this season, 99-88 on Jan. 29, but that game was in Orlando and Cavs starters Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Delonte West were out. Both are expected to play in the rematch.
A few interesting facts in this great rematch :
Last time these 2 met the Cavs were working on nearly a 10 point cushion right before the half then the wheels fell off. The 2nd half was a joke. The referees had a major impact on that game. No homecourt calls for the Magic tonight.
The Magic were arguably playing their best ball of the season the last time these 2 met. This time there is no Nelson, but West and Z are present for this game.
The Cavs appear to be going through the motions with some of their smaller, less significant games recently. That leads me to believe that this will be a very focused, genuine effort to the best of their ability.
Since the Nelson injury there have been a handful of games in which the Magic have laid an egg and haven’t really shown up. When there is such a small margin for error as this game will be for the Magic, there is a chance that this could get ugly.
The line was set at 6. Not 2,3,….. Six is telling us who is expected to win this contest tonight.
Betting on Lebron is much better than betting against him.
It never hurts to bet on a team that has only lost 1 game at home all year and is 22-8 ATS @ home. Its obvious that they have been waiting for this game for quite awhile.
