The Orlando Magic and Cleveland Cavaliers saved us. Of what, you might ask? From a Round 1 without a single Game 7. Every other series in Round 1 ended without a winner-take-all matchup, but the Magic and Cavs are going all out.

Both teams are trying to reach the second round of the play-offs for the first time in a few years. The Cavs haven’t been to Round 2 since 2017-18. But the Magic haven’t been to the second round since 2009-10 and have been out of the first round four times since then.

The Magic have an even bigger mountain to climb than the Cavs today. They’re playing the Cavs in Cleveland, and home teams have an advantage not only in general, but specifically in this series: all six games in this series have been by the home team.

Can the Magic beat the Cavs at home for the first time in this series? Can the Cavs beat a young, hungry Magic team? Follow all the action from Game 7 here.

  • The Magic are hitting some big three-pointers right now. They’re 4-for-7, while the Cavs haven’t drained one of two attempts.

  • The Cavs are not off to a particularly good start. Jarrett Allen is out due to a rib injury.

  • Welcome to the first and only Game 7 of the NBA Playoffs yet. The Magic and Cavs have gifted us with a winner-take-all matchup this Sunday afternoon, and you can catch all the action here.

    Cavs head coach JB Bickerstaff started the day with the grumpy, incredulous energy you can only get from an NBA head coach before a Game 7.
