The Cavaliers enter this contest on a serious cold stream for a team that wants to be taken seriously as a championship contender.
We know having LeBron James on your roster will automatically earn you elite status, but coming off a loss to the Boston Celtics is less than ideal, while dropping five out of their last seven is downright troubling.
The Magic enter this contest on an even worse skid. The team has dropped three straight, but they’ve also gone just 1-12 straight up in their last 13.
The Cleveland Cavaliers enter this game averaging 109.9 points per game. That number is good enough for fifth in the league.
In terms of offensive efficiency, the Cavs are posting 110.8 points per 100 possessions. That number jumps them up to third in that category.
Defensively, Cleveland is allowing opponents to score 107.2 points per night. That number is only enough for 22nd in the Association.
If that number seems particularly bad for a championship contender…it gets worse.
In terms of defensive efficiency, the Cavs are giving up an atrocious 108.4 points per 100 possessions. That puts them down in 28th in the NBA, ahead of only the lowly Phoenix Suns and dead-last Sacramento Kings
The Orlando Magic enter this contest having scored 104.5 points per contest. That number is good enough for 18th in the NBA.
In terms of offensive efficiency, the Magic take a dip in the rankings. They fall to 26th in this category, as they post just 102.7 points per 100 possessions.
Defensively, Orlando is giving up 110.2 points per night, which is only good enough for 27th in the league.
When it comes to defensive efficiency, the Magic move up only a single spot in the rankings to 26th.
Per 100 possessions, Orlando gives up 108 points to opponents.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
The Cavs are struggling and the Magic are struggling. But that doesn’t mean this is going to be an even competition.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Cleveland -9.5
Minus-9.5 is a big number for a team that can’t figure it out, but the Cavaliers have something going for them the Magic just don’t.
LeBron James has historically played with some of the worst benches in the league in terms of points per game, but this season, his second group has been top-five, if not top-four in the league.
Orlando has a starting lineup that has plenty of talent, but it lacks depth across most positions.
This one should be a double-digit game when it comes down to 0:00, and it won’t be the Magic coming out on top.
