How To Watch

What to Know

On Friday, the Orlando Magic will fight it out against the Cleveland Cavaliers in an Eastern Conference playoff contest at 7:00 p.m. ET at Kia Center. The timing is sure in the Magic’s favor as the squad sits on six straight wins at home while the Cavaliers have been banged up by five consecutive losses on the road.

The Cavaliers might be facing a desperate Magic team considering the result of the team’s postseason contest against the Cavaliers on Tuesday. The Magic were just a bucket shy of victory and fell 104-103 to the Cavaliers.

The Magic’s defeat came about despite a quality game from Paolo Banchero, who scored 39 points along with eight rebounds. Banchero had some trouble finding his footing against the Cavaliers on Saturday, so this was a step in the right direction. Less helpful for the Magic was Jalen Suggs’ abysmal 0-5 three-point shooting.

This is a must-win for the Magic as the Cavaliers are a game away from taking the series. Check back here after the game to see if the Magic can force a Game 7 or if the Cavaliers leave them behind.
