Dwight Howard’s gone, but the Cavaliers’ funk against the Magic lives on. The wine and gold dropped their 10th straight game against Orlando, and despite a 25-point effort from Dion Waiters, lost to Orlando 108-104 in Amway Center. The Cavs got solid contributions from Anderson Varejao (19 points, 17 rebounds), Jeremy Pargo (15 points on 7-of-14 shooting), and Tyler Zeller (13 points, 9 rebounds). They also forced 18 turnovers, but 16 of those came in the first half. Furthermore, the Cavaliers once again allowed 50% shooting and over 100 points. Down the stretch, it was J.J. Redick making a perfect 8-of-8 from the line that prevented any late rally from the Cavaliers. The 3-9 Cavaliers are right back at it tomorrow night, against the Miami Heat.
