When the Cavaliers hit the locker room at halftime of Saturday's game against the Orlando Magic at Amway Center, they were tied, 51-51, after blowing a 10-point lead. It was pointed out, not too gently, that starting center Tyler Zeller had one rebound. "We challenged him and he came out there with a full effort," Kyrie Irving said. "He took it as a personal challenge. That's what we need from him on a consistent basis in order for us to be good." Zeller responded with 12 points and six rebounds in the second half to help the Cavs rout the reworked Orlando Magic, 118-94. "I just tried to be more aggressive," Zeller said. "Getting offensive rebounds, you normally have an advantage as soon as you get it, so you try to take it back up quick and make moves."
