(SportsNetwork. Giants Andrew Suarez Jersey .com) - The Orlando Magic have more wins than LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Yes, you heard that correctly. The Magic (6-9) have one more win than the Cavaliers (5-7) and will try to make it two when they visit the superstar-laden squad Monday night at Quicken Loans Arena. Cleveland is mired in a season-long four-game losing streak after winning four in a row and James called the team fragile. Were a very fragile team right now, James said after Fridays 110-93 loss to Toronto. Well, we were a fragile team from the beginning. Any little adversity hits us, we just shell up. Thats something that will come with experience. James had 15 points and 10 assists, while Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving scored 23 and 21 points, respectively, for Cleveland, which committed 20 turnovers and shot 43.2 percent. James had five turnovers and his team hasnt scored 100 points during the slide. Far too many unnecessary turnovers, said Cavs head coach David Blatt. Ball- handling, turnovers. Mistakes that, a good half of them are avoidable. The Cavs had an 18-point lead in the first quarter evaporate and trailed by double digits in the final stanza. They had a 46-34 advantage in rebounds and a 52-34 difference in points in the paint. Still, the Cavaliers couldnt hold on because of turnovers and poor shooting in the second half. Cleveland ended 3-of-16 from 3-point range and has struggled defensively, allowing 102.7 ppg. Washington, Indiana and Milwaukee are scheduled to visit Quicken Loans Arena. Irving hopes to lift the Cavs back into the win column and has scored 20 or more points in a career-high seven straight games. He is averaging 23.1 points, 5.3 assists and 4.1 rebounds in that time. Orlando shoots for its third straight road win Monday and looks to bounce back from Fridays 99-92 loss to the Miami Heat. Heat forward Chris Bosh was too much with 32 points and 10 rebounds, and made 4-of-6 3-pointers. Miami shot 52.1 percent from the floor and was 12-of-26 from downtown. Nikola Vucevic countered for the Magic with 33 points and 17 rebounds, while Victor Oladipo scored 14 points for Orlando, which shot 44.9 percent and had a 44-33 advantage in rebounds. Oladipo was impressed with his teammate Vucevic, who leads the team in scoring (19.4) and rebounding (12.1). I mean, he barely even jumps but he gets them. Thats how good he is, Oladipo said. Hes a great big, one of the best in the league. Orlando is 4-5 on the road this season and went just 4-37 away from Amway Center in 2013-14. Magic forward Tobias Harris did not play versus the Heat because of a strained right calf and is questionable against the Cavaliers. He is second on the team in points (18.8) and boards (8.4). The Magic lost all four meetings with Cleveland last season and are winless in the past seven encounters between the teams. James, who is averaging 24.7 ppg this season, posted 19.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists in four games against Orlando last season as a member of the Heat. In 45 career games, including the playoffs, against the Magic, James is averaging 28.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 6.9 assists. The Cavs have a chance to prove theyre not fragile when they shoot for a fifth straight win over the Magic at the Q. Giants Mel Ott Jersey . Browns advice worked. Irving scored 20 points, including seven in the fourth quarter, and Cleveland defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 88-82 Saturday night. Irving made his first shot of the night on a layup a little over three minutes into the game. Giants Sam Dyson Jersey . Sijsling, ranked 74th in the world, was leading 6-0, 4-1 when his Italian opponent called it quits after just 39 minutes on court. In a match pitting together two qualifiers, Michal Przysiezny of Poland defeated local favourite Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (4) for only his second Tour win of the season. . Many of those eyes are in the United States of America, a country that the sport has wanted on its side for some time. On Sunday the football Gods delivered once again, only this time it was time for good old USA to experience as much heartache as joy. SOCHI, Russia -- Team Canadas best players brought their best game and left with gold. On the worlds biggest stage, Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby made good on their strong tournaments and controversial roster pick Chris Kunitz sealed the victory as Canada won its second straight Olympic gold medal in mens hockey with a 3-0 win over Sweden on Sunday. Canada did not trail at any point in the final or over the course of the entire tournament and finished as the first undefeated gold medallist since the Soviet Union in 1984 in Sarajevo, beating Norway, Austria, Finland, Latvia, the United States and Sweden along the way. Until Sunday, Toews and Crosby were two of Canadas best players through the first five games but did not have a goal to show for it. Canadian coach Mike Babcock brushed off concerns about a lack of offence from his forwards, figuring they would come but hoping the stars wouldnt "run out of time." Toews, who opened the scoring with a deflection in the first period, and Crosby, who beat Henrik Lundqvist on a breakaway in the second, delivered just in time. Putting up two goals meant Sweden would have had to score as many goals in the third period as Canada gave up in its first five games of the Olympics. That defensive dominance continued against Sweden, which was without first-line centre Nicklas Backstrom, a late scratch. NHL stars accustomed to more offensive roles continued to display the kind of hard-working defensive intensity Babcock needed out of them, limiting Swedens scoring chances in the process. Goaltender Carey Price made 24 saves for his second straight shutout to cap off his impressive tournament in which he allowed just three goals in five starts. By beating Sweden, Canada became the first back-to-back gold-medal winner since the NHL began sending its players in 1998. It was the first time Canada won gold in two straight Games since 1948 and 1952. And this didnt take a fortunate bounce Quality chances came fast and furious in the games first few minutes. Crosby generated the first one 57 seconds in when he batted the puck down and found Patrice Bergeron for a shot from between the circles that Lundqvist got in front of. Canadas Jamie Benn and Swedens Niklas Kronwall traded shots before Bergeron picked off a pass from Johnny Oduya three minutes in and shot it right into Lundqvist. Swedens best chance of the first period was a minute later, when Gustav Nyquists shot from close range hit the left post behind Price. Canadas starter looked behind him to see the puck inches from the goal line before covering it up. Bergeron continued his tremendous start by shooting off the shaft of Lundqvists stick and hitting the post 11 minutes in. That helped Canada turn the tide after being on the receiving end for a handful of shifts. It was the line of Patrick Marleau, Jeff Carter and Toews that has been together the longest thaat got Canada on the board at the 12:55 mark. Giants Pablo Sandoval Jersey. Carter skated down the right wing almost to the goal-line and found Toews streaking to the net. Able to keep his stick free from Patrik Berglund, Toews got it on the puck and deflected it off the inside of Lundqvists right pad and in. With Martin St. Louis inserted onto the fourth line in place of Patrick Sharp, Canada generated a couple of scoring chances and got a power play after Matt Duchene drew a penalty on Swedish defenceman Jonathan Ericsson. Unable to score in those two minutes, Canada went on the kill late in the first into the second after a Kunitz high-sticking penalty and got the job done. Canada had the lions share of chances throughout the second period, save for a couple of opportunities by Loui Eriksson and Erik Karlsson, who came into the day tied for the tournament lead in scoring. Karlsson also made a good stick check on Crosby to thwart the captain in open ice. But Crosby wasnt going to be denied at the 15:43 mark, when he poked the puck away from Ericsson at Canadas blue-line and blew right by Alexander Steen to get a breakaway. Crosby had just enough time to think, go backhand and bank the puck off Lundqvists left pad an into the net. It didnt have the drama of Crosby beating Ryan Miller for the golden goal in Vancouver four years ago, but as he raised his arms in the air it looked like Canada couldnt be beaten on this day. Kunitz, who made the team because of his natural chemistry with Crosby, did it all by himself to provide Canada with breathing room. Kunitz took the puck away from Daniel Sedin, skated over the blue-line and beat Lundqvist clean at the 9:04 mark of the third period. Because Canada gave up just three goals all tournament, that set off quite the celebration on the bench. Eleven players, including backup goaltender Roberto Luongo, won gold for the second straight Olympics. Crosby, Toews, Rick Nash, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Marleau, Bergeron, Duncan Keith, Shea Weber and Drew Doughty got to celebrate twice. Some of the biggest contributors in getting Canada to the final came from newcomers, including Carter and Benn. But two of the three goal-scorers against Sweden -- Crosby and Toews -- were the same ones who scored to beat the United States in Vancouver in 2010. NOTES -- With Backstrom out, Sweden inserted defenceman Henrik Tallinder into the lineup because it did not have an extra forward. The Swedes were already without captain Henrik Zetterberg because of a herniated disk. ... Canada had no lineup surprises, scratching injured forward John Tavares and healthy defenceman P.K. Subban along with third goaltender Mike Smith. ...
