The Cleveland Cavaliers ready themselves for a big matchup against a tough Orlando Magic team. The Cavs will have their hands full with a young Orlando team that is on the rise. The Magic currently sit at 14-6 on the season and are the two-seed in the Eastern Conference. Cleveland is trying to steady the ship amid injury concerns, currently going 11-9.

Orlando’s Key Players

Orlando is a young team with a fast playstyle, looking to get out and run in transition whenever possible. Franz Wagner and Paolo Banchero are a young duo on the rise. Wagner is the team’s leading scorer, posting 20.7 points per game to go with 5.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Banchero is the glue of the Magic, averaging 19.5 points, seven rebounds and five assists per game. A large portion of Orlando’s offense runs through Paolo Banchero. The Cavs will need to find a way to contain this duo to come out on top in tomorrow night’s matchup.

Big Performers for the Cavs

For Cleveland, the Cavaliers have had plenty of rest following a 110-101 win over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday. The Cavs were bolstered by three 20-point performances from Darius Garland, Donovan Mitchell and Max Strus. Garland posted 22 to go with five assists and grabbed two rebounds. Mitchell scored 20 and Strus tied Garland at 22 along with five rebounds and five assists.

Keys to Cavaliers-Magic

The Cavaliers will look to defend their home court versus Orlando in what is sure to be an exciting matchup. The Cavs have cooled down after going 5-1 in a six-game stretch midway through November but are looking to get back to their winning ways after a feel-good win over Detroit.

Cleveland will have to match Orlando’s fast-paced style of play and key in on their matchups in the post to come out victorious. Evan Mobley will be a name to look out for in this game as he will likely draw the assignment of Paolo Banchero. This matchup will be an exciting one for two of the game’s top up-and-coming power forwards.

A win on Wednesday night would go a long way for a Cavs team looking to build confidence and momentum.
