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.
