Key Matchup: Jameer Nelson/Chris Duhon vs. Kyrie Irving

It has not taken long for the first pick of the 2011 NBA Draft to have an impact on his squad. Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving currently leads the Cavs in points (17.6) and assists (4.8) per game (as of Sunday).

Orlando’s defense will be focused on forcing the dynamic point guard into making some rookie mistakes as it aims for a victory.

Instant Analysis: After a reasonably successful start to the season, the Cavaliers have sputtered. Cleveland has dropped five of its last six games (as of Sunday).

"I don't know if guys thought we've arrived or we can't stand prosperity," said Cleveland Head Coach Byron Scott.

Other Notables: Magic guard Larry Hughes played with the Cavaliers from 2005-08.
