The Orlando Magic and the Cleveland Cavaliers battled it out in game seven on Sunday in Cleveland, and the Cavaliers ended up getting the win. The Magic got out to a big lead as they led by 18 points in the game, but the Cavaliers came back and were able to get the win. Orlando led 49-31 at one point, but the final score ended up being 106-94 with Cleveland on top. The Cavaliers are moving on to take on the Boston Celtics.

This ended up being a great series after the Cavaliers easily went up 2-0 in the series. There were a lot of comfortable victories by both teams in the series, but it went to game seven, and that’s always fun to see.

That was a tough loss for the Magic, but Paolo Banchero is feeling good about the future.

“After those first two games, everyone was looking at us like, oh I don’t know if they are ready and whatever,” Paolo Banchero said, according to an article from “For us to take this to seven and then have a great first half (in Game 7), and then have them have to fight for every inch to get back in and beat us. It shows where we are headed. It shows what we were able to do this year by itself. It’s really encouraging for everybody – players, coaches, whole organization. We are really going to build off this.”

Losing like that after having such a big lead stings, but the Magic had a great season, and Banchero is right, this team is headed in the right direction.
