Collin Sexton led the Cavaliers with 20 points. Rookie Darius Garland had 16 points and four assists.
Cleveland finishes 1-3 in the preseason. They had two double-digit losses to Boston and a close loss in Detroit.
They'll regroup and prepare for opening night, which is on Oct 23rd in Orlando.
The team hopes Matthew Dellavedova will be available against the Magic. The veteran suffered a sprained right thumb in the second quarter on Tuesday night.
Dellavedova could be in the starting lineup against the Magic as long as he doesn't miss time with the thumb injury.
Tristan Thompson and Brandon Knight both sat out of Tuesday's preseason finale (rest). Ante Zizic (foot), Dylan Windler (leg) and John Henson (ankle) were also unavailable because of injuries.
Windler went through an extensive workout during the Cavaliers' shootaround. The team is hoping he can return to practice as early as next week. He's missed the entire preseason with a stress reaction in his left leg.
The Cavaliers are off on Wednesday and will resume practice on Thursday. Their first home game is Oct 26 against Indiana.
