Box Score: Magic 108, Cavaliers 104

Dwight Howard’s gone, but the Cavaliers’ funk against the Magic lives on. The wine and gold dropped their 10th straight game against Orlando, and despite a 25-point effort from Dion Waiters, lost to Orlando 108-104 in Amway Center. The Cavs got solid contributions from Anderson Varejao (19 points, 17 rebounds), Jeremy Pargo (15 points on 7-of-14 shooting), and Tyler Zeller (13 points, 9 rebounds). They also forced 18 turnovers, but 16 of those came in the first half. Furthermore, the Cavaliers once again allowed 50% shooting and over 100 points. Down the stretch, it was J.J. Redick making a perfect 8-of-8 from the line that prevented any late rally from the Cavaliers. The 3-9 Cavaliers are right back at it tomorrow night, against the Miami Heat.

    Cavs down 4, cut it to 2, foul JJ Redick, who makes two foul shots, and repeat, and repeat, and repeat…ball game. Makes you wonder how many times Scott said in the time out “now let’s get a quick basket and foul that guy who doesn’t miss foul shots so we can get out of here with APPBITH”.

  • Wow

    Tomorrow could be ugly.

  • Dee P

    Pargo zero turnovers. Back up PG can be checked off.
