After dropping their first preseason game in Memphis on Monday night, the Orlando Magic look to rebound in Cleveland against the defending champion Cavaliers. The new look Magic did some good things against the Grizzlies, but turnover issues plagued them to much, allowing the Grizzlies to walk away with a five point win.
The injury bug continues to be an issue for the Magic as well. Serge Ibaka will rejoin the team in Cleveland after having a precautionary MRI on his sore knee. He will be available to play against the Cavaliers, but likely will not due to his lack of practice time. Jodie Meeks continues to recover from offseason foot surgery, while Aaron Gordon (ankle) and Elfrid Payton (hip flexor) continue to improve, but will be out yet again.
Game time is set for 7:00 PM Eastern time, with television coverage on NBA Tv. The game can also be heard on ESPN580.
