LeBron's Letdown

Last night's game had the potential to be one of the best games ever played in NBA history regarding the number of shots LeBron James made before halftime. Unfortunately, after all is said and done, the first game played between the Cavs and the Magic resulted in the Cavs receiving their first loss in the Eastern Conference Finals. Some had predicted this loss, saying that nine days in between games was too much time to have off, but I don't think their time off had anything to do with their loss. Orlando had a great defense going on in the final quarter, and Cleveland was seriously lacking in their strategy behind their offensive plays. It seemed as though the plan of action for the fourth quarter was something along the lines of "Get the ball to LeBron, no matter what, and from there, LeBron will make the shots." With Michael Pietrus blocking almost every shot that LeBron attempted and LeBron continuing to get the ball, it became clear that the Cavs' "strategy" for their offense wasn't going to result in a win. A much better offensive strategy to pull off a win would have included LeBron handing over the ball to another teammate that didn't have all eyes on him. Mo Williams looked more than capable of making a few shots, as he wasn't as heavily guarded as LeBron was; and whether it was LeBron's ego or the coach's strategy that didn't allow LeBron to hand over the ball, one thing remains certain--one loss isn't going to break the team's or the fan's spirits. As a firm believer in Lebronism myself, I'm expecting nothing less than a phenomal game to be played on Friday, hopefully resulting in a win for th Cavs.
