The Lakers secured an early lead in the series, winning both games played at home. Now the series shifts to Orlando, where Magic fans hope the team's luck will change. The Orlando Magic has the regular-season results on their side, as they have won two games played against the Lakers during the 2008- 2009 season. On their journey to the NBA Finals, the Orlando Magic have emerged victorious against the Philadelphia 76ers in six games, the defending World champion Boston Celtics in seven games, and the Cleveland Cavaliers and star LeBron James in seven. The Lakers, who lost last year's Finals to the Boston Celtics, won match-ups with the Utah Jazz, the Houston Rockets and the Denver Nuggets.

The Lakers' star shooting guard Kobe Bryant, has garnered three consecutive NBA Championships as a member of the Lakers from 2000 - 2002. Since 2002, Kobe and the Lakers have not been able to win another championship, despite appearances in the Finals in 2004 and 2008. The Lakers hope to earn the franchise's fifteenth NBA title, while head coach Phil Jackson is eager to earn a record tenth championship as a coach, a record surpassing the coaching feats of legend Red Auerbach. If Orlando Magic wins the series, the Florida-based basketball franchise will finally garner its first Championship title. The NBA Finals are TicketLiquidator's choice for Ticket of the Week.
