Magic Whoop Cavs 102-73 (Yes You Read That Right!)

From Sportsline.com:

The Orlando Magic did not need a superstar Friday night.

Carlos Arroyo had 17 points and seven assists, leading a 67-point effort by Orlando's reserves in a 102-73 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It was the struggling Magic's largest margin of victory this season.

Tony Battie was the only Orlando starter in double figures with 13 points and 13 rebounds, but four players -- Arroyo, Darko Milicic (11 points), Keyon Dooling (13) and little-used Bo Outlaw (12) hit the mark off the bench.

"That's our job -- to come in the game, bring energy and change the tempo of the game," Arroyo said.

The win snapped a six-game losing streak for Orlando, which had previously lost 18 of its last 20, and a four-game winning streak for the Cavaliers.

LeBron James, who missed Cleveland's shootaround and was questionable with flu-like symptoms, had 25 points and seven rebounds. Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Flip Murray each scored 13 for Cleveland, while Drew Gooden added nine points and 12 rebounds.
