Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic

Magic vs Raptors.

Raptors vs Magic.

When these teams last met only about a week ago, it was the battle of the two hottest teams in the East.

Not so much anymore.

While the Raptors have continued their improved play, the Magic have struggled and are not only looking for a little revenge tonight, but also looking to get back in the win column, especially after last night's ugly loss to Washington.

It's going to be a tough task though.

Jameer Nelson won't be playing, Big Baby Davis is still out, and of course, Raptors fan-favourite Hedo Turkoglu has yet to return. Ish Smith gets the start in Jameer's place and suffice to say, this is one of those games the Raptors not only should win, but need to if they're to continue their snail-like rise back to Eastern Conference respectability.

.GO RAPS!
