On Wednesday February 28, the Toronto Raptors arrive at the Amway Center to face their host the Orlando Magic. In their last game the Raptors easily handled the Pistons beating them by 29 points. The Magic lost in their last outing to the Thunder though they pushed them to the bitter end.
Last season the Raptors and Magic split the season series and this is the first game of this campaign between the squads. The Raptors hold the all-time record having bested the Magic in 41 of their 78 matches.
In the first game back from the break the Raptors learned how teams would approach them now that they were in first.
Although Jonas Valanciunas should have taken a free throw at game end the reality is Toronto didn’t play ‘Raptors Ball’ for more than a quarter in the loss to the Bucks.
That changed Monday as the Raptors served the Detroit Pistons a healthy dose of Raptors ball. Blake Griffin was visibly frustrated as he discovered just how far his Pistons need to climb to reach the upper echelons of the East.
Once again the Raptors responded to what they consider a bad loss with a blowout victory. Through 59 games DeMar DeRozan, Jonas Valanciunas and Kyle Lowry (minus 1:45 seconds in one game) have sat the entire fourth quarter sixteen times. Serge Ibaka has done it 14 times.
With 11 lottery teams on tap the Raptors will be looking to replicate this action 11 more times.
There is a common bond between the Magic and Raptors as Jeff Weltman was Masai Ujiri’s right hand man prior to moving to Orlando to take a position similar to Ujiri.
It won’t happen immediately, but based on the drafting of Jonathan Issac it’s safe to say Weltman will follow the pattern he helped develop in Toronto by drafting and recruiting length and longer term, talented college prospects.
Although the Magic are on a tank run Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier have been lighting it up scoring in double digits and shooting a highly efficient perimeter percent.
Marreese Speights (personal) and Jonathan Isaac (ankle) are both questionable for Wednesday. Former Raptor Terrence Ross hopes to return in approximately three weeks.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Orlando Magic NBA Prediction:
For some reason the Magic always seem to play the Raptors tight. That said the Raptors starters are beginning to enjoy resting the entire fourth quarter like they’ve done 16 times this season.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -9
For Toronto’s starting five to chill in the fourth they need to build a substantial early lead.
