Magic vs Cavs Game Seven: What Do The Cavs Need To Do To Progress?

0

The Cavs wasted Donovan Mitchell’s 50-point performance in game six and lost for the third time in Orlando. All six clashes so far in the Magic vs Cavs series were won by the home team and this leads to the winner-takes-it-all game seven in Cleveland this Sunday.

The Cavs are dealing with multiple injuries to key players. So, what do they need to do to be the team going to face the Boston Celtics in the semifinals? 

Magic vs Cavs game seven must-do for the Cavs to win again

The Cavs must find a way to deal with the pressure. There are more experienced players on their roster in that regard and this should help. 

Stitch up as many of the star players as possible and throw them into the fight

The Cavs have struggled with health all season. This serious could have easily been over if Jarrett Allen hadn’t missed games five and six with a rib injury. He’s listed as questionable for the must-win Game Seven. The Cavs need him on the court so the medical team will have to do their bid to help deliver the vital win. 

Donovan Mitchell is also listed as day-to-day. He put his body on the line in game six and scored 50 of the 96 total points the Cavs achieved. Shame he didn’t get much help from elsewhere. He will be badly needed on the court again now. We fully expect the warrior he is to suit up and play. The big question is how badly hurt he is and will this affect his productivity?

Evan Mobley is a third-banged-up starter for the Cavs. He rolled his ankle during game six. After the match, we saw him hobbling through the dressing room too. However, he’s not on the injury report and it seems Mobley will start in Game Seven. Still, watching this ankle and seeing how mobile he will be is important as the Cavs need Mobley on the court to win. Has anybody forgotten his Game Five heroics?  

The rest of the Cavs need to help with the scoring

To win and progress the Cavs need to be far more effective offensively. Only once in the six games so far Cleveland scored over 100 points. They average 94.2 points per game in this series. This is a huge drop compared to their 112.2 points per game average from the regular season. 

In game six Mitchell and Darius Garland scored 71 of the 96 points between them. The rest of the team had just 25 points combined. This simply won’t do it for the Cavs if they want to win Game Seven. Much more in attack needs to come from everybody. 

Magic vs Cavs – our prediction

We still believe the Cavs will progress with a home win. It won’t be pretty and most likely this will be another dogfight clash between two solid defensive teams. However, Mitchell showed the way what needs to be done to clinch the series and we back him to have another huge night on Sunday. This time we’re confident his teammates will help much more too.
