ORLANDO: GUARDS: With Dwight Howard gone, this becomes JAMEER NELSON's team on the offensive end. Injuries slowed him a year ago, but he still does a nice job creating his own scoring chances . . . ARRON AFFLALO will provide some much-needed defense on the perimeter, a huge team weakness that will be exploited in the post-Howard era. He'll be a No. 2 or 3 option on the offensive end as well . . . J.J. REDICK has a chance for a bigger role in what should be a transitional year in Orlando. He's no more of a defensive liability than Nelson . . . CHRISTIAN EYENGA was a throw-in during the Dwight Howard trade and defends well enough to earn a roster spot . . . ISHMAEL SMITH will back up Nelson once he returns from a shoulder injury . . . E'TWAUN MOORE has played well enough in the preseason to spell Nelson too. FORWARDS: HEDO TURKOGLU still has some value as a point forward, though his minutes could shrink as Orlando rebuilds . . . GLEN DAVIS shined in Howard's absence last year. He's inefficient, but aggressive and willing to throw his weight around . . . Keep an eye on ANDREW NICHOLSON; the rookie is a crafty scorer who can shoot away from the basket . . . QUENTIN RICHARDSON will chug along as an injury-prone, three-point specialist . . . AL HARRINGTON is coming off a couple knee surgeries and may not have much left in the tank . . . MOE HARKLESS is athletic, versatile, and could get a long look in the second half of the year . . . GUSTAVO AYON is a capable big body who can play some center . . . JUSTIN HARPER will be buried on the bench . . . JOSH McROBERTS is not good. CENTERS: Davis figures to see a lot of minutes at center, but NIKOLA VUCEVIC is a much better defensive option. He's limited offensively, but could start grabbing more minutes in the middle as the year goes on . . . KYLE O'QUINN is a big body who can score around the basket. He has a rough transition ahead of him as an average athlete from a small school.
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: KYRIE IRVING is the real deal, a heady playmaker and near-elite shooter. He should emerge as the NBA's next great point guard this season . . . Rookie DION WAITERS has a chance to step right into the starting lineup. He can get to the rim and generally makes good choices withthe ball. The only thing holding him back is defense after playing college ball in Syracuse's lazy zone . . . C.J. MILES will reportedly start at either the two or three spot, but he really needs to find the range on his shot again for him to stick in the starting lineup . . . Gunning combo guard DANIEL GIBSON is looking like he'll be their sixth man . . . The Cavs are still trying to figure out their second unit. JEREMY PARGO figures to be Irving's backup, but DONALD SLOAN is a better defender and could eventually pass him for this role, which doesn't mean many minutes unless Irving gets injured again. FORWARDS: TRISTAN THOMPSON is trying to add a perimeter shot to his repertoire. Don't count on him becoming David West, but he should improve offensively to go along with his rebounding and shot-blocking . . . ALONZO GEE returns as the starting small forward, excelling on the defensive end, but without a polished enough offensive game to earn 35 minutes per night . . . OMRI CASSPI was in and out of the rotation late in the year as he battled knee issues. It's getting close to make-or-break time for him . . . JON LEUER is a solid stretch four who has a real chance at a rotation spot . . . SAMARDO SAMUELS reportedly dropped some weight in his effort to find some minutes . . . LUKE WALTON is an unofficial member of the coaching staff . . . Undrafted rookie KEVIN JONES could make some noise with his work on the offensive boards . . . LUKE HARANGODY is more of a D-League talent. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO's wrist should be 100 percent, and Sideshow Anderson should be the same relentless, double-double threat he's always been . . . Rookie TYLER ZELLER is a 7-footer with some nice offensive skills -- he can knock down a jump shot in the half court, and run the floor. He'll struggle to defend in space, but made a living drawing charges at UNC, and should be able to play 20+ minutes as a rookie.

*Magic-Cavaliers Preview* =========================


Orlando (14-35) at Cleveland (15-34), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Although the Cleveland Cavaliers haven't defeated the Orlando Magic in almost three years, they would appear to have an ideal opportunity to so Friday night.

Having picked up the pace over the last two weeks, the Cavaliers try to snap a 10-game losing streak to a struggling Magic team dealing with more than its fair share of injuries.

Though Cleveland (15-34) sits at the bottom of the Central Division, its recent efforts haven't resembled those of a last-place club. The Cavaliers have averaged 105.4 points - 8.9 more than their season mark - during a 5-2 run and are coming off notable back-to-back wins.

Four days after beating Western Conference powerhouse Oklahoma City 115-110, Cleveland shot a season-high 56.5 percent in a 122-95 rout of NBA-worst Charlotte on Wednesday - its most lopsided victory since LeBron James' last with the team May 7, 2010.

"It was the first game that I can remember that I got a chance to sit down in the fourth quarter without it being the other way. So that was a good feeling," coach Byron Scott said. "This was one of those games where I was really curious to see if we learned from some of our past mistakes and if we've grown as a basketball team, and I can say we definitely have. It's just a matter of now just keeping it going."

Kyrie Irving had 22 points to lead five players in double figures for Cleveland, which compiled 22 points off the Bobcats' 13 turnovers and outscored them 50-30 in the paint.

"It definitely shows that we're making steps in the right direction," said Irving, averaging 29.9 points and shooting 56.1 percent over his last seven home games. "We're getting better every single game."

The Cavaliers now look for their momentum to carry over against the Magic (14-35), whom they last beat 115-106 on Feb. 11, 2010, behind a near triple-double from James. Cleveland has since been outscored by an average of 10.6 points during its skid in this series, including a 108-104 road loss Nov. 23. Irving, though, didn't play in that game due to a fractured finger.

Orlando will be short-handed this time around with Glen Davis (fractured left foot) out and J.J. Redick (right shoulder) and Arron Afflalo (strained calf) both uncertain to suit up. That trio combined for 53 points in the November win over the Cavs.

Hedo Turkoglu is also expected to miss his second straight game with the flu.

The Magic are coming off their season-worst 11th consecutive loss and 22nd in 24 games, falling 86-76 to a Los Angeles Clippers team that was without its top three scorers Wednesday.

Jameer Nelson, in his first game back after missing two due to a left forearm contusion, had 18 points while Nikola Vucevic added 15 and 14 rebounds for Orlando, which is averaging 79.8 points on 37.6 percent shooting in four games this month.

"When you're working with different combinations, asking guys to do more than we've asked them in the past, it's a tough adjustment to do that on a game-to-game basis," coach Jacque Vaughn said. "So we're going to have to deal with it and learn from it, and get better."

Vucevic has proven to be a rare bright spot for the Magic, averaging 14.0 points and a league-high 13.4 boards in 28 games since Dec. 14.

Orlando hasn't been handed 12 straight losses since a 13-game skid March 13-April 10, 2004.
