The Orlando Magic conclude their five-game roadtrip Sunday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Orlando is still winless on the trip. Tipoff is set for 6 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 4 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic led by as many as eight points in their game against the Chicago Bulls on Friday, and had a four-point lead going into the fourth quarter, but collapsed down the stretch in an 87-86 loss. Nate Robinson scored 12 of his team-high-tying 19 points in the fourth quarter to catalyze Chicago's run. Beno Udrih led all scorers with 27, but his turnover on Orlando's last possession cost Orlando a chance to tie or take the lead.

Cleveland's last time out: The Cavs ended their 10-game losing streak on Friday with a 97-91 win on the road against the Boston Celtics. Tristan Thompsn erupted for game-highs of 29 points and 17 rebounds, helping Cleveland cope with Kyrie Irving's 4-of-20 shooting performance.

The last meeting: The Cavaliers ran away with a 118-94 win against Orlando on February 25th in a game which was tied at the half. The Magic committed six turnovers in the third quarter, leading to 10 Cavaliers points, as Cleveland built a seven-point lead before routing the hosts, 39-22, in the fourth. Seven Cavaliers scored in double-figures, and C.J. Miles nailed four of the Cavs' nine three-pointers.
