Cavaliers and Magic battle tonight for the first time this season

Cleveland (35-8), who has the NBA's best winning percentage, comes to Orlando (34-10) in a nationally televised game on TNT tonight. Both teams are coming off impressive wins Tuesday. The Cavaliers beat Sacramento 117-110, with LeBron James getting a triple-double and PG Mo Williams scoring 43 points along with 11 assists.

"Big Z", Zydrunas Ilgauskas, is doubtful to return tonight for the Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers are 23-0 this season when scoring 100 or more points, but the Magic have beaten the Cavs 6 of the last 8 games overall.

The Magic are 4 1/2 point favorites.

    It's important for the Magic to play well tonight and be competitive after their disappointing performance last week against the Celtics.

    The Magic will have Pietrus, so there won't be any excuses if the Magic don't play up to par; the Cavs will most likely be without Big Z.

    Here's hoping for a win... GO MAGIC!

    Never like the match-up when there's someone for hedo to guard,having that said labron's help isnt as good as the celtics help. The magic will try and take advantage of the youth in their line-up at the bigs and dwight should dominate because of it. Labron cant guard everybody so i expect us to get production from alot of area's (bench guys that means you!). I like the magic in a sound victory.
