Cavs Snap Skid with Win over Orlando

Cavs Snap Skid with Win over Orlando

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- LeBron James scored 29 points -- 16 in the first quarter -- as the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Orlando Magic 106-74 on Monday night.

Prior to the game, James called himself out by telling reporters "I stink" and taking responsibility for the team's lackluster performance.

"I'm my biggest critic," James said. "I wasn't happy with my play the last week. No one puts any more pressure on me than myself. You go out and you just don't talk about it, you show it too."

The veteran took his own advice and came out strong, scoring as many points in the first quarter as the Magic (6-10) did. James finished the day by shooting 9-for-17 and pushing the lead to the point where he did not play in the fourth quarter. As a team, Cleveland (6-7) controlled the game defensively with 14 steals and nine blocks, forcing 21 turnovers.

"He's a great player and that's what great players do," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said of James. "They lead their team and make plays at both ends of the floor." 

Orlando struggled offensively as well, shooting 36.3 percent (29-of-80) from the floor. The Magic, who had won consecutive road games, were playing without leading rebounder and scorer Tobias Harris for the second straight night. Victor Oladipo picked up the scoring, racking up 22 points in the loss.

Magic’s Victor Oladipo and Channing Frye Suffer Sprained MCLs

Ingrim Publishing/Thinkstock(ORLANDO, Fla.) -- As the preseason opens in the NBA, the Orlando Magic are already dealing with injuries to two starters as guard Victor Oladipo and forward Channing Frye are both dealing with sprained MCLs.

Oladipo suffered the injury in his right knee after landing awkwardly during a scrimmage on Friday. Frye suffered the same injury in his left knee during a scrimmage.

Magic head coach Jaque Vaughn said, "It's not ideal and we'd love to have all 15 guys ready to rock and roll, participating and learning each other, but that's not where we are. But you know we won't complain and we'll keep this thing rolling."

"It gives an opportunity for other guys to understand how we want to play," he continued.

It is unknown just when either player will be ready to return to the court, or if either will be ready to play when the team opens up the regular season on Oct. 28.

Oladipo was the runner-up in last season's Rookie of the Year voting after he averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

Frye is entering his ninth NBA season and his first with the Magic.

Magic Executive Pat Williams Eagerly Anticipating the Draft Lottery

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The 2014 NBA Draft is said to be one of the deepest pool of prospects in years. Orlando Magic senior vice president Pat Williams hopes his team can land the top pick in the highly anticipated draft.

This past season, the Magic finished with the third-worst record in the NBA at 23-59. Because of that, they are in prime position to land one of the top players coming out.

"It's a deep draft, if you don't get number one your still gonna come away with a very, very good young prospect," Williams told ABC Sports Radio. "I underline that because all of these guys are very young. Few of them haven't turned 19 yet so it's a young crop."

Players like Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, and Dante Exum are expected to among the top picks in the June draft

In the upcoming draft lottery, the Magic can finish no worse than the sixth pick, but have a 15.6% of getting the number one pick.
