Magic Vs. Cavaliers Score Update: Howard-less Orlando Leads 43-30

Although they are without Dwight Howard, the Orlando Magic are having no trouble with the Cleveland Cavaliers, leading 43-30 at halftime.

Although they are without a scorer in double-figures at the halfway point and shooting just 38.7 percent from the floor, the Magic are playing stellar defense, holding the ice-cold Cavs to just 28 percent shooting including a 1-for-9 mark from behind the arc.

Jameer Nelson and J.J. Reddick are tied with eight points each for the team lead. Only two Cavaliers have scored more than three points, with Antwan Jamison scoring eight points and Manny Harris scoring five.
