Magic Fall to the Toronto Raptors

Magic Fall to the Toronto Raptors

The Raptors came out with the win despite having DeMar DeRozan, the all-star guard, out of this game with a quad injury.

The Cavs, who are in third, are 11.5 games behind Toronto.

Serge Ibaka had 14 points for Toronto.

DeRozan was miffed there was no foul called on Corey Brewer on a drive to the rim that missed with 30 seconds left. We fight through it, but as soon as we say something, we're the bad guys, we get fined, we get criticized. "We work hard every single day and we hype each other up". We still prevail, but we've all got a breaking point and it's frustrating.

"Nobody had to do any recruiting", said McGrady, who wore jersey No. 1 in honor of his favorite player growing up - former Orlando star Penny Hardaway. Gordon made his return Tuesday night after missing five games due to a concussion.

The Raptors now hope to avoid any controversies with officiating while also avoiding consecutive losses for the first time since a 127-125 defeat to Golden State on January 13 and a 117-111 loss at Philadelphia two days later.

"It was a four-point game, we got frustrated, we can't allow that to do that to us", Casey told reporters. They tore up their roster on February 8 (nearly a month after the Raptors handed them their worst loss this season, a 34-point drubbing).

Lowry added a pair of 3-pointers as the Raptors pushed the lead to 91-80 in the final minute and coasted to the finish line.

Orlando (21-49) is 3-6 since the last meeting with Toronto. They also turned the ball over five times within the final 12 minutes of the game, and they only made three of 19 shots. With AP Photos.Kyle Lowry scored 25 points and Toronto used a strong fourth-quarter defensive effort to beat the Orlando Magic 93-86. "A lot of solid looks that I usually knock down, I just missed them".

With Bismack Biyombo, Evan Fournier, Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross all scheduled to earn between $10.5 million and $17 million next season and with Aaron Gordon scheduled to become a restricted free agent, the Magic will have limited flexibility to make major free-agent additions this summer.

In the first game of an ESPN doubleheader on Wednesday night, the Toronto Raptors will travel to Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers in a matchup of two of the East's top three teams.

Gordon collided with Los Angeles Lakers forward Julius Randle in the third quarter on March 7.

"It's about decision-making and execution", Magic coach Frank Vogel said. We all know that, and they've been playing exceptionally well this season.
