The Orlando Magic haven’t looked good at either end of the floor through 4 games, and they’ve had issues covering numbers dating back to last season. The Cleveland Cavaliers are off to a decent start through 3 efforts, and they have the offensive firepower to get whatever they want from this Magic defense. Thick line, but the Magic have a lot of showing a and proving to do before they can be trusted against above average teams.
