Orlando Magic beat LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers to reach NBA Finals

Magic reach NBA Finals for first time since 1995

They’re back from the basketball dead.

Fourteen long and frustrating years since making their first NBA Finals appearance — just six years removed from posting the league’s worst record — the Orlando Magic are returning for a shot at the championship.

The Magic earned a trip to face the Los Angeles Lakers for the title by winning the Eastern Conference finals, ousting the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-90 in Game 6 on Saturday night at Amway Arena.

The NBA Finals opens in L.A. at Staples Center on Thursday night.

“It would be so great to get a trophy for Rich,” Magic President Bob Vander Weide said, speaking of team owner Rich DeVos, 82.

Orlando made it to the title round in 1995, but was swept by the Houston Rockets in four games.

The Magic were led by young superstar center Shaquille O’Neal back then.

And their return to those glory days is fueled now by young superstar center Dwight Howard, who scored 40 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to spare the Magic from playing a Game 7 in Cleveland on Monday night.

Alot of folks were hoping for a Kobe vs. Lebron matchup but that didn’t come through.  So we have an Orlando Magic vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Final which starts on Thursday in Los Angeles.  This will be the Magic’s first trip to the NBA Final since 1995.
