Game Overview

The Orlando Magic and the Cleveland Cavaliers face off in a decisive Game 7 to determine who will advance to the next round of the playoffs. With the series tied 3-3, both teams will be looking to leave it all on the court and secure the victory.

 

Team Statistics

Orlando Magic

The Magic have been led by the scoring of Paolo Banchero throughout the playoffs, and they will need another strong performance from him to pull off the upset on the road against the Cavaliers.

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers have relied on the playmaking of Darius Garland and the rebounding of Jarrett Allen to carry them through the playoffs. With their home-court advantage, they will look to feed off the energy of the crowd and come out with a win.

 

Injuries and Player Matchups

The Magic will be without Gary Harris, which could impact their perimeter defense. However, they have other players who can step up and contribute in his absence.

 

Recent Performances

Orlando Magic

The Magic are coming off a hard-fought victory in Game 6 and will look to carry that momentum into Game 7. With their backs against the wall, they will be motivated to give it their all and come out with a win.

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers suffered a tough loss in Game 6 but will have the home-court advantage in Game 7. With their season on the line, they will be determined to protect their home court and advance to the next round.

 

Prediction

Despite the Cavaliers having the home-court advantage, the Magic have been playing well recently and have the talent to keep this game close. Paolo Banchero has been exceptional for the Magic, and if he continues his strong play, they should be able to cover the +2.5 spread and potentially pull off the upset in Game 7.

However, if Jarrett Allen plays for the Cavaliers, his presence could make a significant difference, and it might be safer to take the Cavaliers to win. But the pick is Magic +2.5 considering the spread.

Pick: Orlando Magic +2.5
