LeBron James says the Cavaliers will attack Dwight Howard in the paint, even though he was this season's Defensive Player of the Year.

“He’s the defensive player of the year for a reason. He definitely changes shots and tries to prevent guys from going into the paint," James said. "But we have to get decent touches early and make him play one-on-one defense so that he is not allowed to just roam around the defensive zone.

“That’s just us, we’re an attacking team," said James when asked why he is so confident that the Cavaliers will challenge Howard. "So if he’s on the court or not on the court we’re gonna attack anyway.”

I really believe the Magic have a shot. Howard will be a problem plus I believe the Magic give the cavs lots of matchup problems at other positions. Lebron is the only matchup problem though it is a big problem.

It is one factor. NOt the factor. Houston was a weird case. We beat them mostly with alston and brooks gave us fits. It is almost we were playing a different Houston team out there than in the regular season without Yao and with brooks.

Yes .. Howard and his foul trouble will be a key.

Lebron to refs: I'm going to the hole so you better blow the whistle.
Andre Iguodala via Twitter - It's not even close...and I'm not talkin bout the score.

If the Magic hit their 3's like they can, the Cavs are in for a fight.

If Orlando's shooting is off, then the Cavs roll.

I agree.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
