Magic clinch a playoff berth with win over the Cavaliers

Cleveland - Orlando led from wire-to-wire despite playing without star center Dwight Howard, who has missed the last four games with a herniated disk in his back.

The news the Magic made the postseason took a back seat to the team's injury list, which seems to grow by the day. Howard and forward Hedo Turkoglu (facial fracture) are sidelined indefinitely. Coach Stan Van Gundy said before the game he's preparing to play the rest of the regular season and the playoffs without the two players.

Antawn Jamison led the Cavaliers with 21 points. Donald Sloan scored a career-high 15.
