The Cavaliers, minus Kyrie Irving, visit the Magic at Amway Center this Black Friday.
The Orlando Magic continue their longest homestand of the season Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tipoff is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.
The Cavs find themselves without franchise point guard Kyrie Irving, the reigning Rookie of the Year, as the Duke product has a broken index finger on his left hand and will miss a month. Nobody expected Cleveland to compete with only Donald Sloan and Jeremy Pargo at point guard, but it has: Pargo scored 28 points in his first game starting in Irving's place, helping the Cavs end their six-game losing streak on Wednesday against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Orlando also won Wednesday night, defeating the Detroit Pistons by a 90-74 final to open their homestand. The Pistons shot 8-of-44 in the second half.
