The Toronto Raptors and Orlando Magic will tip off Wednesday in a match that could be a preview of the first round of the playoffs. This is the fourth meeting between the clubs this season with the Raptors having won all three prior matches.
The Magic are playing in a back-to-back set having lost to the Pacers on Tuesday while the Raptors are one of three unbeaten teams in the seeding games (Pacers, Suns).
With the most difficult eight-game schedule of the 22 teams in the bubble, the defending champions have hit the hardcourt in playoff form beating both the Lakers and Heat.
The hiatus allowed the time necessary for the Raptors to get healthy and through the two games, their depth is shining through. In the win over the Lakers, it was Kyle Lowry who led the way with 33 points and 14 rebounds while Fred VanVleet posted a career-high 36 points against the Heat.
Ultimately it’s the Raptors defense that is showing out. In the win over the Heat, the perimeter was a factor with the Raptors being the top perimeter defense and ranking fifth in perimeter offense while the Heat rank first offensively and fifth defensively on the perimeter.
Toronto won both battles holding Miami to 31.1 percent while the Raptors shot a blistering 50 percent from deep.
Pascal Siakam (22), Serge Ibaka (15) and Kyle Lowry (14) were the other double-figure contributors in the victory over the Heat.
The offensive onslaught witnessed through two games by the Magic wasn’t on hand in their loss to the Pacers. It wasn’t the robust 130 points per game but Orlando still scored 109 versus Indiana although it wasn’t enough for the win.
In the match versus Indy, the Magic allowed 43 first-quarter points and were never able to claw their way back despite tieing or winning every other quarter.
Three players hit 20 or more points in the loss including Nikola Vucevic with a double-double of 24 points and 10 rebounds, while Aaron Gordon and Terrence Ross each added 20 points.
James Ennis III (12) and Markelle Fultz (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
In the back-to-back the Magic may be without Michael Carter-Williams (foot) and Ennis (dislocated finger). Jonathan Isaac is lost for the season after tearing his ACL on the weekend.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
With a brutal eight-game schedule on tap, the Raptors can’t afford to not bring the same intensity versus the lower-seeded teams. They’ll need to stay focused on Orlando and not look ahead to the Celtics.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -5.5
Siakam is due to have ‘one of those’ games. .
