Cavs win and lead 3-0 over Atl

The Mavs got HOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :ranting:

They did, the league came out and admitted making a critical mistake of not calling a foul. The Mav's have no chance now.

1 friggen point and a foul that should have been called  :mad1:  :mad1: Dallas I guess we're done for now  :( even as optimistic as I get with teams/players I want to win I'm throwing the white flag down here  :(

Buck/Jamesdster your Cavs winning again, this time away from home and by 15 points too. You guys look pretty unbeatable right now. Boston don't look the team of last years playoffs right now, so I think there's only the Lakers to stop you taking the title.

Cleveland hasn't won a title in ANY sport since 1964 (Browns pre super bowl) so we surely aren't going to believe it until it happens.  So many heartaches along the way.....Indians lost 2 World Series in the 90's; Browns sooo many heartbreaking playoff losses, Cavs vs San Antonio a few yrs ago.  We DESERVE 1!!!!

Boston is without their best player, Kevin Garnett, without him they are still good but can't beat the top teams.

I think Cleveland will take it all, probably against the Lakers.
If those two do meet in the finals it should be a good series though.

Of course they do, but I don't think the refs need to get involved to have that matchup occur. They were by far the 2 best teams this year!

Dallas fell off after that choke job/ref assisted final against Miami. Trading Devin Harris for Kidd was a no-no since you gave up a younger scorer and ball handler for a streaky shooter. They needed a competent center because Dampier is/was never gonna to be that player. Dallas could use a Chris Andersen on their team...Eduardo Najera use to be that player for them.

Well Chris...yes, we're doomed!  No chance in hail now. :mad1:  But I also blame the Mavs....it never should have been that close at HOME anyway!

Oh well...maybe they can give us ONE victory tomorrow but even then I don't think they may do it.  They just don't match up well against Denver.

But I'm thankful that they got to the playoffs and progressed one more round.  So thank you Mavs!!!!!!!

Mavs again later tonight Dallas, lets just hope this isn't the last game of the season and they can atleast get a win for some pride. Then see what else can come from there. GO MAVS!!! :cheer; :cheer: :cheer:

Cavs look good to wrap their series up tonight, even away from home in Atlanta. After their last performance I can't see them losing tonight. Into the Eastern Conference Finals they will go!

Hey Chris... I just want them to win at least ONE game!  Unfortunately, I won't be able to see it.  :mad1:  Every semester the administrators have to be in charge of the campus at night as the "Dean in Charge" and tonight is my night, so I won't get off work until 9:30 pm (Dallas time).

So... here's to at least ONE win... please Mavs!!!!  I don't want them to be swept :(  But you're right... looks like this is Cleveland's time to shine this year.

Shame you didn't get to see this one Dallas with having to stay so late :( but the Mavs as you'll have sen just about pulled through 119-117, to atleast get 1 win in the series  :) Now lets just hope for a good performance in Denver and to maybe put them under some pressure there :)

Cavs cruised through as they won again in Atlanta and swept the series 4-0!

Well at least the Mavs didn't get swept! :rofl_2:  I was able to see the last quarter.  I didn't think they would actually pull it through - but they did.  (Now watch they will probably get blown out in Denver)...but at least we one a game! ://

I don't think Boston would beat Cleveland this season even if KG was 100% healthy.  Having 4 games at the Q and getting Mo Williams is a huge difference over last year's Cleveland-Boston series.  I honestly think the trio of Lebron, Delonte West, and Mo Williams is better than a trio of Kobe, Ariza, and Fisher as well.  The Lakers do have a vastly superior frontcourt with Odom and Gasol though.  Maybe I'm looking too far ahead but it should be an interesting finals.

About Boston, you could be right, Cleveland is better than last year and so is Lebron.
Garnett is my favorite player, so I would go with Boston.  :cool:

I hope we get to see the lakers- clev. That would be a really good series, at least on paper.

Cavs have never made reached the finals, there's always a first time, it's the oldest franchise with no finals appearances followed by Sabres-Clippers. the team of Price-Daugherty-Nance-Harper was excllent in the 90'sw but the central division was the toughest during that period.
great news for Ohio if they reach and win the final, hope the historic Browns will also achieve something in the future and my Bengals.
