Cavs Vs. Magic Recap: Cavs Fall In Orlando, 93-80

After trailing by 15 points at the half, the Cleveland Cavaliers came out in the third quarter and cut the Magic lead to six but Orlando quickly responded to push the lead back to double digits. Orlando held the Cavs at arm's length throughout the fourth quarter and cruised to a thirteen-point win, 93-80.

The Cavs simply could not hit anything from behind the arc, hitting just four of 18 attempts from three-point range. Antawn Jamison led all Cavs with 16 points. Tristan Thompson, who was matched up against Dwight Howard, finished with a double-double effort, scoring 15 points and grabbing 11 boards, including six on the offensive glass.

Cleveland now returns home and will host the Phoenix Suns on Sunday afternoon.
