The Orlando Magic hit the road once again Monday as they visit LeBron James and his struggling Cleveland Cavaliers.

Tipoff between Orlando and Cleveland is set for 7:00 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic faced the Miami Heat, James' former team, Friday and fell by a 99-92 final in a hard-fought contest. Nik Vučević's career-best 33-points weren't enough to beat the visiting Heat, who got 32 points and 10 boards from Chris Bosh. In arguably his best game of the season, Victor Oladipo tallied 14 points, four boards, and two assists for the Magic, who dropped to 2-4 at Amway Center.

Cleveland's last time out: The Cavs dropped their fourth straight game Saturday, 110-93, at home against the Toronto Raptors. James scored only 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting. Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, the Cavs' other All-Stars, scored 23 and 21, respectively. Cleveland limited the visitors to 40 percent shooting, but Toronto prevailed on the strength of its accurate, high-volume foul shooting.

Last season: Even before James' arrival, the Cavs had no problem with the Magic, sweeping the four-game series between the teams. In the final meeting, all five Cleveland starters tallied 10-plus points as it rolled to a 101-93 victory in Orlando. Irving led the way with 22 points. Vučević scored 20 with 12 boards for the Magic.
