Sunday, April 8 finds the Orlando Magic arriving at Air Canada Centre to face their host the Toronto Raptors. In their last game the Orlando Magic got blown out 137-100 by the Charlotte Hornets. The Raptors last played Friday versus the Pacers capturing a franchise high 57th victory and cemented home court throughout the east’s playoffs.
Last season, the teams split the season series, yet through two games Toronto has won both in this campaign. The Raptors hold the all-time record having bested the Magic in 43 of their 80 matches.
There is history between these squads as Jeff Weltman worked closely with Masai Ujiri prior to taking over the management duties in Orlando. Presumably his goals will be to build consistency and mirror the success of the Raptors.
The Magic rank 26th with three games remaining and will do their best to lose all three.
With rare exceptions the bottom third of the Association has three times the amount of players out injured.
To wit, Nikola Vucevic (back), Aaron Gordon (calf) both missed the Hornets game and are questionable Sunday. Additionally, Jonathan Isaac (ankle) and Jonathon Simmons (wrist) are out.
Evan Fournier (knee) has missed the last 14 games and along with Terrence Ross (sprained MCL and non-displaced fracture of the tibia plateau) will miss the remainder of the season.
One of the key objectives for the Raptors this season was to take the East’s top seed. With the win over Indiana they clinched that position while also achieving the most wins (57) and home wins (33) in franchise history.
Although there was a brief stutter in their consistent wins the past two games versus the Celtics and Pacers punctuated precisely how good this squad’s defense is. In back to back games they held Boston and Indiana to 33 first half points. Moreover, the Raptors held both squads to their lowest point total of the season.
This is the final home game for the Raptors who’ll no doubt want to finish on a high note prior to hitting the road to close out versus Detroit and Miami.
Entering the day, a successful Raptors playoff run went through the Bucks, Pacers|Sixers en route to likely another date with LeBron. It changed completely by day’s end with Washington and Cleveland now positioned in those spots. Arguably the worst scenario, but Toronto has faith in themselves and no doubt there will be more shifts before end of day April 11.
