How to watch Cavaliers vs. Magic: Live stream, TV channel, start time for Monday’s NBA game

Through 3 Quarters

The experts predicted a win for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but it’s no sure thing at this point. They currently hold an 81-80 lead over the Orlando Magic.

Point guard Darius Garland has led the way so far for the Cavaliers, as he has 18 points and nine assists. Orlando has been relying on the performance of power forward Wendell Carter Jr., who has posted a double-double on 15 points and 12 rebounds in addition to six dimes.

Orlando hasn’t lost 85% of the games in which they were down heading into the final period this year, so a victory here would be refreshing.

Current Records: Orlando 20-55; Cleveland 41-33

What to Know

The Cleveland Cavaliers will play host again and welcome the Orlando Magic to Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, where tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET Monday. These two teams are looking to take out their frustrations on one another after having lost close ones recently.

It was a hard-fought game, but the Cavaliers had to settle for a 98-94 defeat against the Chicago Bulls this past Saturday. Cleveland’s loss came about despite a quality game from point guard Darius Garland, who had 28 points and five assists along with six rebounds.

Speaking of close games: Orlando fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against the Sacramento Kings this past Saturday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 114-110. Despite the defeat, Orlando had strong showings from center Moe Wagner, who had 15 points and five assists in addition to six boards, and center Mo Bamba, who posted a double-double on 18 points and 13 rebounds.

Cleveland is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past four games.

Cleveland is now 41-33 while Orlando sits at 20-55. Two stats to keep an eye on: The Cavaliers enter the contest with only 104.7 points allowed per game on average, good for third best in the league. Less enviably, the Magic are stumbling into the game with the second fewest points per game in the league, having accrued only 104.2 on average. They might struggle to break 100.
