The Cleveland Cavaliers are the team with the most buzz surrounding them right now. The buzz has to do with things outside of basketball. Cleveland is looking like a first round playoff team, as they travel to face the struggling Orlando Magic. The Magic are 9-14 at home this season, and could be without Aaron Gordon.
The last time the Cavaliers and Magic took the court against each other, was earlier in the month. Cleveland squeaked by with a home win, 103-102. The Cavaliers lead the season series, 2-1.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the most disappointing teams in the NBA this season. Cleveland is 3-2 over their last five games, and still not playing convincing basketball. The Cavaliers were destroyed their last game against the Rockets, losing 120-88.
The Cavaliers shot 39 percent from the floor, and 26.7 percent from three point land in the loss. LeBron James looked like he did not want to play. He was purposely blowing defensive assignments, and not giving a 100 percent effort. Stats don’t lie. James finished with 11 points.
On top of the poor performance, the Cavaliers were beaten by a legit contender. Houston is arguably the best team in the NBA right now. Cleveland allowed them to do what they wanted at Quicken Loans Arena. After the loss, the team started shopping J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson.
On the defensive side of the court, the Cavaliers seem to be getting worse game by game. Cleveland is allowing 105.7 points per game this season. Good enough to rank them 16th in points allowed this year. If Cleveland is going to get to the finals, they need to start competing defensively.
As LeBron James goes, so do the Cavaliers. Right now there is too much going on surrounding James outside of the court.
The Orlando Magic are terrible this season. The team is 16-36 this year. Thy have no star power or veteran leadership. The only thing logical for Orlando, seems to be tanking. The Magic are 2-3 over their last five games, and recently beat the Miami Heat, 111-109. The Magic shot 48.8 percent from the floor and 43.3 percent from three point land in the win.
Hopefully the Magic can shoot over 45 percent in this matchup. Orlando will be without star forward, Aaron Gordon. Gordon is out with a bad hip. Hopefully the injury is not long term. Hip injuries are always risky. Gordon is the teams leader in points per game, with 18.4 per game this season. If he is unable to get healthy, the Magic could be almost guaranteed a top three pick.
With Orlando in full tank mode, the Magic are going to struggle throughout the season. The Magic stormed back in the last meeting against Cleveland to fall short. Losing by one point. Aaron Gordon finished with 17 points. His absence tonight will be key.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
Cleveland should no doubt win this game, but lately the Cavaliers can’t be trusted. Look for the Cavaliers to look out of sync. The Cavaliers are 11-14 on the road this season.
Orlando is not a good team, but could give the Cavaliers problems in this matchup. Orlando will struggle to find a first scoring option, but if they can share the ball, and score as a team, this game could be close.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Magic +6.5
Take the Magic at home plus the points. I have no reason to trust Cleveland will beat Orlando by more than six points.
