HOME FOR THE LONG HAUL

Tonight starts a string of five in a row at home for the Cavaliers, welcoming the Orlando Magic to Cleveland. The two played twice in the first half of the season, but Orlando looks vastly different after some injuries and a busy trade deadline.

LAST TIME OUT

With seven players on the shelf for Monday night's game against the Raptors, the Cavs hung tough with a fully-healthy Toronto squad for the better part of a two quarters. About halfway through the third quarter, the Wine & Gold would run out of gas. Darius Garland had 13 points and 10 assists while Isaac Okoro set a career-high with 20 points.
