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.
