NBA Playoff thoughts

Going into game 5 I really thought the Lakers were in trouble.  They had been outscored up to that point in the playoffs.  And that is not a good thing.  I'm not sure but they still might have been outscored through five games.  I definitely thought they could lose the series.  

However they have won game five and will likely advance to the Finals.  There they meet a juggernaut of a team.  The Orlando Magic.  They have a good center and good perimeter players.  They are just putting the finishing touches on dismantling the Cavaliers.  They are shooting really well right now though, so they  may cool off and struggle by the time they face the Lakers or Nuggets.  

Have to like their chances against the Lakers though.  But they won't have home court advantage.  And that hurts their chances.
