Though the much more anticipated Lakers v/s Cavaliers or to be more exact LeBron James v/s Kobe Bryant clash did not happen, but however, this does not at all imply that the finals will be not interesting and exciting.

As always and before any finals, the expectations, the predictions and the questions are there. Will Dwight Howard the Orlando Magic, powerhouse be able to lead his team to their very first NBA championship or will the player for all seasons, Kobe Bryant help Lakers to the title, which they missed last season?

For the coming finals of which the Games 1 and 2 are on Thursday and next Sunday at Staples Center, the Lakers will be in much better shape in comparison to last year as they will be having a home-court advantage over the Cavaliers.

Following the starting two games, the middle three games will be played at Orlando while for the last 2 remaining games, both the teams will be retuning to Staples Center. Of course, the number of the games will be played will depending on how many will be needed to settle the title out of the “best of seven series.”

The odds being in favor of the Los Angeles Lakers and moreover with the home court advantage, the Lakers certainly stand out as favorites to to take take the championship. To stop them from doing so, the Orlando Magic need some sort of magic, but in games one can never tell, they are full of those “magical moments.”
