CLE is led by James, averaging 27.1 ppg and 6.8 rebs; Larry Hughes 14.6 ppg; C Zydrunas Ilgauskas 12.1 ppg, 8.2 rebs; former Magic F Drew Gooden 11.6 ppg, 8.6 rebs. CLE averages 95.2 ppg, while allowing 93.5 ppg. The Magic average 93.6 ppg, while allowing 92.7 ppg.
The Magic have lost 8 of their last 9 road games, and 6 games in a row at CLE. The Cavs may be a bit sluggish with this being their first home game after a long road trip. GHill is expected to play for the Magic; will J.J. Redick see meaningful playing time after an impressive game against NJ? CLE is a 5 pt favorite (www.pinnaclesports.com).
