Advantage Superman

Throw it down, big man

Throw it down, big man

Well, well, well — looks like it might not be as easy as I thought for LeBron. Cleveland, which lost just twice at home this season (including once without James, Mo Williams and Big Z), dropped the opener of the East Finals to Orlando tonight, 107-106.

This one started just like I’d figured — The LeBron Show led by 14 after a quarter and 15 at the half before letting Superman and company creep back in the third. So what, LeBron was just playing with them, right? Apparently not — Hidayet Turkoglu showed his inner Rod Strickland, dropping second half dimes left and right and Rashard Lewis’ late dagger was enough to seal the win for the Magic. Looks like I may be in tight to win the bet I made that LeBron would win in less than six games.

Anyway, the line on King James: 49 points on 20-of-30 from the field, six rebounds, eight assists, two steals and three blocks. LeBron, however, took the free out free throw, missing four from the stripe in the fourth quarter, including one in the last two minutes.
