REMATCH AGAINST THE MAGIC

The Cavs are given a second chance to score a win against the Washington Wizards tonight at RMFH. Washington defeated the Cavs in DC on Sunday in a highly competitive game. These two have another game against each other after tonight.

LAST TIME OUT

Wine & Gold played pretty understaffed again on Wednesday to start the homestand and did a furious rally against Magic in the fourth quarter but fell in the end. The Cavs returned down in the last frame of 23, beating Orlando in that quarter 43-27. Darius Garland had 25 points and 10 assists and Jarrett Allen had 17 points and 13 boards.
