Cleveland Cavaliers Defense Stifles Magic Offense

 

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ defense, a hallmark of their success all season, once again proved to be a deciding factor. They held the Magic to just 86 points, forcing them into contested shots throughout the game. Jarrett Allen anchored the defense with a strong performance, grabbing 15 rebounds and blocking 3 shots.

Despite a valiant effort, the Orlando Magic simply couldn’t find enough offensive firepower. Cole Anthony led the team with 22 points, but the rest of the Magic struggled to score consistently. The Cavs’ defensive pressure disrupted their rhythm and limited their ability to get into an offensive flow.

With a 2-0 series lead, the momentum is firmly in Cleveland’s favor. Game 3 will be played on Thursday night at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, giving the Cavs the home-court advantage for the next two games.
