Offer your thoughts on Game 1 … whatever you want to talk about. But above all … who is going to win tonight?

It's obviously important for Orlando to split these first two games. Game 1 is usually the easiest to steal, so tonight should be almost a "must win" for Orlando in my opinion. We've seen all the, "Phil Jackson is 23,568-0 when he wins game one" stats – so if Orlando wants to take this they'll need an inspired performance from Dwight Howard and Company tonight.

Don't fool yourselves and think Kobe wont have his team fired up. With his place in NBA History at stake (0-2 in the Finals without Shaq if they lose) Kobe will be gunning for this title and it all starts tonight.
