Eastern Conference Finals Game 2: Better Than Game 1

Epic. Don't want to get ahead of myself here, but this series looks like it might be even better than the "omggreatestseriesEVERRRR" that was the Bulls and the Celtics in the first round.

The Cavs just snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, moments after they managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory after blowing a 23-point lead.

Hedo "The Turkish Michael Jordan" Turkoglu came up big late in the game for the Magic after a slow start, and hit a go-ahead jumper with :01 left on the clock.

Then LeBron, in the ultimate "anything you can do, I can do better" act of one-upmanship, nailed a fadeaway three at the buzzer over Turkoglu.

I don't know how to feel if I'm Orlando. On the one hand, they managed to steal homecourt from the Cavs, however, on the other hand, a buzzer-beater loss after clawing back from down 23 is pretty heartbreaking. Can't wait to see how things will go when the series heads to Orlando for Game 3.
