Cavs Lose Game 6, 103-96, Magic Force Game 7 in Cleveland

Last Friday night in Orlando Florida the Cleveland Cavaliers played game 6 of their best of 7 series. Again, C Jarrett Allen did not play because of his rib injury. Marcus Morris Sr started in Allen’s place.  After a hard-fought game 5 victory. The Cavaliers looked to close out the series on the road leading 3-2. If the trends of this series home court teams continue, the Orlando Magic were expected to be at their best. The real question going into this game is can the Cleveland Cavaliers play their best?

As expected, the game was competitive, and the Cavs went into halftime trailing the Magic by a score of 53-49. Donovan Mitchell led the Cavs in first half scoring with 19 points. The Cavs stormed out to start the 3rd quarter with a 13-2 run. But the Magic answered with a run of their own and entered the 4th quarter trailing 78-73. But the Magic out scored the Cavaliers 30-18 in the 4th quarter to force a game 7 in Cleveland. The series is now tied 3-3. The one bright spot for the Cavs was Donovan Mitchell scoring 50 points in 42 minutes of play.

The Cavs will try to advance to the second round of the NBA playoffs and play the number 1 seed Boston Celtics. Game 7 of this series is scheduled for Sunday afternoon May 5th. The series finale can be expected to be physical and competitive. This game seven matchup is good for the Cavaliers. The Cavs have won every home game in this postseason. The Cavs will try to win their first playoff series without Lebron James since 1993. If the Cavs advances to the second round of the NBA playoffs this season could be considered a successful season. Come Sunday, let’s see how much farther this team can go this postseason when healthy.
