Game 17: Magic at Cleveland GameThread

The shorthanded Magic, 0-7 on the road, look to salvage the final game of their road trip

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Orlando Magic Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Who: Orlando Magic (6-10) at Cleveland Cavaliers (5-12)

When: Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Where: Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse - Cleveland, Ohio

TV: Fox Sports Florida

Line: Cavs -1.5

Injuries: Orlando - Nikola Vucevic (out), Aaron Gordon (doubtful), Michael Carter-Williams (out); Cleveland - Kevin Love (questionable), John Henson (probable), Dylan Windler (out)

Storyline: The Magic look to salvage the final game on their four-game road trip and earn their first road victory of the season. The Magic, 0-7 outside of Orlando, are the only team in the league yet to win on the road. Coming off a dismal second half against the Pistons, the shorthanded Magic need to improve their ball movement and start making shots to give themselves a chance. Kevin Love (sore back) has missed the previous two games for the Cavs, who have lost seven of their last eight games.
