Although they’ve played three more games this season, the Magic currently have one more win than Lebron James and the Cavaliers. Its a pretty safe bet that nobody saw this coming when the season started. The Magic will look to send the Cavs to their fifth straight loss without one of their leading scorers,  Tobias Harris.

Harris is averaging 18.8 points per game this season to go along with 8.4 rebounds a game. Nursing a strained calf injury, this would be the second straight game Harris misses. The Magic will certainly miss his scoring, as they average just 96.7 points a game (22nd).

With one of their main scorers down, look for C Nik Vucevic to be the go to man on offense for the Magic. Vucevic is leading the magic in both points per game (19.4) and rebounds per game (12.1).

So far on the road this season, the Magic have won four games and are 7-2 ATS overall.


A distraught Lebron James told reporters that the Cavs were playing “fragile” basketball following their 110-93 home loss vs the Raptors.

After jumping out to an 18 point lead, the Cavs went cold on the offensive end and allowed Raptors SG Louis Williams to go for 36 points.

Even with all the current struggles, James still is positive that the Cavs will get this ship turned around. To do so, stepping up on the defensive end would be a start. The Cavs rank near the bottom of the NBA in scoring defense. They allow 102.7 points per game (25th) and are allowing teams to shoot 47.7 percent from the field.

Despite playing just 2-4 basketball at home, the Cavs are still one of the best three point shooting teams inside Quicken Loans Arena. They average 42.1 percent on three point attempts which leads the NBA.

While scoring 102.5 points per game at home, they are allowing just under that at 101.3 points.
