LeBron James despite walking off for a bit last night with a slight knee niggle, manage to finish off with 30 points and 8 assists and will be hoping for a similar type of performance tonight. While I talked up Dion Waiters last night, he managed to still score 8 points but will start needing to step up his game tonight to push up for a victory. Kevin Love had a poor night and will need to make up for it tonight against the Magic tonight. The Cavaliers smashed the Magic last time around by 32 points; and will hope for a similar team performance to get back to winning ways.
The Magic 4 straight before beating the Boston Celtics in their last game, which in fairness, the Celtics only started poorly, but were up to the challenge the rest of the way. Harris and Vucevic have been the major 2 players for the Magic throughout this campaign, and with Harris taking on James, I do not expect him to be as effective. The Magic have the advantage of playing on their home floor, but they will take on a hugely motivated Cavaliers who had a poor loss on Thursday night.
The Cavaliers are strong largely because of their big 3; and the Magic look towards building their own big 3 of Harris, Vucevic and Oladipo; who will be good in about 2 or 3 years from now. Until then you have to back the experienced Cavaliers to get the business tonight.
