Cavs Vs. Magic Recap: Orlando Holds Off Cleveland For 13-Point Win

Bouncing back from their 59-point performance against Chicago this week, the Orlando Magic won their second straight game with a comfortable 93-80 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Magic raced out to a 15-point halftime lead, shooting better than 50 percent from the floor. The Cavs would cut the lead to six but Magic quickly responded to push it back up to double digits and keep Cleveland from threatening down the stretch.

Orlando finished shooting 47 percent from the floor, with all five starters in double figures. Dwight Howard had his typical double-double game, scoring 16 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. Hedo Turkoglu hit three of five three-pointers and added 15 points, while Ryan Anderson rounded out the solid frontcourt production with 17 points.

The Magic now have two days off before a game up north with the Toronto Raptors on Monday night.

Cavaliers Vs. Magic Score Update: Orlando Jumps Out To 15-Point Lead At Half

The Orlando Magic look to be back on the right track offensively after their brutal performance against the Bulls earlier this week. The Magic put 55 points on the Cleveland Cavaliers and took a 15-point lead into the locker room at halftime. Orlando hit 56 percent from the floor while holding the Cavs to just 36 percent from the field.

Dwight Howard picked up two fouls but added six points and five boards. His frontcourt-mate Ryan Anderson picked up the scoring slack, scoring a game-high 13 points. Amazingly, Anderson has already put up eight shots from behind the arc in just one half of play. The Magic have held rookie sensation, Kyrie Irving, who's celebrating his 20th birthday today, to just six points. Orlando will look to extend the lead and get back on track against an inferior opponent.
