Orlando Magic Form

Orlando go into tihs game looking to bounce back from a Game 1 defeat - their fifth loss in their last seven games.

The Magic ended the regular season with a 47-35 record that secured fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings.

They came into the postseason cold though, as they lost four of their final six games in the regular season.

Orlando bounced back from a 124-115 loss in Charlotte with a 113-98 victory over Chicago, only to then go out on the road and lose 118-106 in Houston, 117-99 at Milwaukee and 125-113 in Philadelphia.

The Magic stopped the rot with a 113-88 win over the Bucks at home in their regular season finale, but the losing resumed when they travelled to Cleveland for the series opener and lost 97-83.

Cleveland Cavaliers Form

Cleveland will look to open up a 2-0 lead in this playoff series before heading to Orlando for the next two games.

The Cavaliers finished fourth in the Eastern Conference with a 48-34 record, but they too went cold over the final couple of weeks as they lost four of their last six regular season games.

They lost three straight on the road as they were beaten 122-101 in Phoenix, 116-97 at the Los Angeles Lakers, and 120-118 at the LA Clippers.

Cleveland rebounded at home by beating Memphis 110-98 and Indiana 129-120, but they failed to make it three in a row as they lost 120-110 to Charlotte in their final regular season outing.

The Cavaliers bounced back from that in their opening playoff game though, as they beat Orlando 97-83.

Verdict

Cleveland have won seven of the last nine meetings between the two teams, including Game 1.

That record is tough to ignore, and given the victor usually covers the spread when these two teams meet, we have to stick with the Cavaliers for Game 2.
