Tuesday, February 2nd, the Orlando Magic and Toronto Raptors will play for the second time in three days in a home and home series. The Raptors won the initial meeting 115-102.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Raptors sweeping the regular-season series and have won six in a row versus Orlando. Toronto holds the all-time record between the squads with 51 victories in the team’s 90 meetings.
Pascal Siakam hadn’t looked like the same player who won Most Improved since before the NBA had to suspend the season last year. When games resumed it was like watching a different player.
While he’s had a few good games there was something notably wrong or missing.
Postgame Siakam said he finally felt good after dealing with numerous injuries (groin/knee), but witnessing two games where the forward showcased speed and drives it was clear there had to be issues dating back to last season.
Most notable was how boisterous and happy he was. In retrospect, it now seems so obvious but his lack of joy was clearly missing as was the typical game chatter.
In the win Sunday, the Raptors All-Stars each registered a double-double as Siakam dropped 30 points and 10 rebounds while Kyle Lowry produced 12 points and season-high 15 assists.
Fred VanVleet (12), DeAndre Bembry (12), and Yuta Watanabe (11) were the other double-figure scorers.
Norman Powell missed the last two games with a quad contusion and is doubtful to play versus the Magic. OG Anunoby has a strained calf that caused him to miss the last three games and won’t play Tuesday.
Patrick McCaw has yet to play since offseason knee surgery.
In the lead-up to the first game, I pointed out how happy Nicola Vucevic would be Marc Gasol was no longer on the Raptors. In hindsight, I wonder if it’s Nick Nurse who is in the big man’s head.
Vucevic still delivered a double-double of 15 points and 14 rebounds but he shot an inefficient 5 of 18.
Aaron Gordon picked up a tech for a payback shot to Kyle Lowry that stemmed back to his hamstring injury in the bubble and what he believed was an intentional foul.
Gordon scored 14 but had to leave the game on crutches after suffering a bad ankle sprain that will keep him off the court for up to six weeks.
Cole Anthony (16), Dwayne Bacon (13), and Evan Fournier (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Michael Carter-Williams (foot), Chuma Okeke (knee), and Al-Farouq Aminu (knee) are all out indefinitely.
Jonathan Issac suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee in the Orlando bubble. Markelle Fultz tore his ACL in the eighth game of the season. Both will be out for the rest of the season.
