Goodness gracious, Cavs fans, this was a fun one. The good guys outscored the Magic 67-43 in the second half en route to a dominant victory Saturday night in Orlando, the team’s second largest win in the post-LeBron era (27 points vs. Bobcats on Feb. 6). The tremendous road win also represents a complete turnaround for these two teams this season — the Magic started 12-13, but are just 3-29 since. That’s ironically the exact same streak that the Thunder had to start the season in Kevin Durant’s second year. Also notable: The Cavs bench scored 59 points.  Led by efficient scoring performances from Speights, Ellington and Miles, this shows the potential of this more complete Cleveland team. And boy, was this fun. The Cavs are now 13-14 in their last 27 games.   CLEVELAND CAVALIERS – 18-37 (Won last 2) ORLANDO MAGIC – 15-41 (Lost last 5) Team 1 2 3 4 Total CLE 26 25 28 39 118 ORL 25 26 21 22 94   Cleveland Starters Pos Min FG 3Pt FT +/- Off Reb Ast TO Stl BS BA PF Pts Kyrie Irving G 29:36 4-9 0-1 4-4 +3 0 3 9 1 1 0 0 2 12 Dion Waiters G 26:02 5-16 1-3 1-2 +22 2 4 4 0 1 0 3 3 12 Tyler Zeller C 25:15 7-12 0-0 2-2 +21 6 7 1 0 1 1 0 2 16 Tristan Thompson F 24:26 1-5 0-0 0-2 +15 5 11 3 2 0 1 0 0 2 Alonzo Gee F 24:16 6-9 1-3 4-4 +9 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 3 17 Bench Min FG 3Pt FT +/- Off Reb Ast TO Stl BS BA PF Pts Totals 43-87 9-21 23-28 18 47 28 10 8 4 7 20 118 Percentages .494 .429 .821 Team Rebounds: 8 Marreese Speights 22:45 4-8 0-1 10-12 +3 2 8 1 0 1 1 1 2 18 Wayne Ellington 22:18 6-10 3-6 0-0 +21 0 4 1 0 0 0 0 1 15 Shaun Livingston 21:58 2-3 0-0 0-0 +2 1 2 6 2 1 0 0 4 4 C.J.
