After being short at the point guard spot for the last two months, the Cleveland Cavaliers could be on the verge of having too many players capable of running the offense. The Cavaliers will have Isaiah Thomas available for his second game of the season when they visit the Orlando Magic on Saturday and are anticipating the return of Derrick Rose.

Thomas sat out the first 36 games while recovering from a hip injury and scored 17 points in 19 minutes off the bench in a 127-110 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday — Cleveland’s lone win in the last five games — before sitting out the second night of a back-to-back at Boston on Wednesday.

The Magic snapped a 17-game losing streak in the series by trouncing the Cavaliers in Cleveland 114-93 on Oct. 21 as part of an 8-4 start.

Cleveland dropped its last five road games and opened the current five-game trip with a 102-88 loss to the Celtics on Cavaliers PF Kevin Love scored a season-low two points on 1-of-11 shooting in Wednesday’s loss and is questionable tonight.

Cavaliers are 15-34-2 ATS in their last 51 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400 and are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games.

Cavs win the game but the Magic get the cover.
