Cleveland Cavaliers to sweep Orlando

The Cleveland Cavaliers is looking to sweep all their regular season matches against the Orlando Magic this season. This meeting is the second day of their back-to-back meeting where it was the Cavaliers who took home the 117-113 win. Recently, it seems like the Cavaliers is preparing for a long run in the postseason. The Magic on the other hand is not backing down easily, despite early elimination this season. They are just looking for more wins in order to finish their campaign with pride. The Magic will host this match on April 7, 2023, at 7:00 AM (GMT+8).

These two teams have met each other for three times prior to this match in the regular season, but all those three matches were won by the visitors. However, the hosts will surely not allow a sweep, as they still want to end their campaign with heads high. In the standings, the hosts are at the 11th in the East, giving them their early elimination. This is not a surprise as they only recorded 34 wins from their 79 matches this season. The visitors on the other hand have been one of the most impressive squads this season. They are sitting at the fourth in the standings, and are already secured of a playoff spot. They were able to record 50 wins from their 80 matches this season.

Cavaliers are looking to extend their prolific run this season, as they are now preparing themselves for the playoffs. Looking at the standings, they will most likely face the Knicks in the first round of the playoffs. During the first day of their back-to-back match against the Magic, they were shooting excellently both from the field and beyond the arc. They shot 50% on that match, including a 48.4% shooting from beyond the arc. Donovan Mitchell continues to prove why he is Cavaliers’ future, as he led his squad with 43 points on a 15 of 23 shooting. That 40-point game is his fourth consecutive 40-point game, making him the only NBA player to do that this season. They are at the 24th in offense with 112.4 points per game, but are the leaders in defense, as they give up 107.1 points per game.

Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland leads the Cavaliers with 28.3 and 21.6 points per game respectively. However, it is unfortunate that they joined their team’s long list of absentees in this game. Along with them are Isaac Okoro, Dylan Windler, Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, and Evan Mobley.

Although the Magic are already eliminated this season, they are still aiming to show that they are a team who cannot be belittled. They have shown their heart and passion down the stretch, winning six games from their last 10. On their last match, they shot over 50.6%, and outrebounding the Cavaliers, 47-30. From those 47 rebounds, 13 of those are from their offensive rebound, which works for their advantage. Additionally, they did well when shooting from beyond the arc, shooting over 43.5% on their last game. Looking at the Magic, they are a very young and talented squad, wherein a lot of them could step-up, which they need to take advantage. They are at the 26th in offense with 112 points per game, while being 16th in defense, allowing 114 points per game.

Paolo Banchero and Franz Wegner are the two who led the Magic this season, scoring 20 and 18.8 points per game apiece. Moreover, only Jonathan Isaac is an absentee for this match, as he underwent a season-ending surgery.
