Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic
January 24, 2013
TSN - 7:00 PM EST

If there was one team the Toronto Raptors were looking forward to playing tonight, to help offset last night's tough loss to the Miami Heat, it would likely be the Orlando Magic.

The Raptors have beaten the Magic three times already this season, the last time in crushing fashion, 123 to 88 before the start of the new year.

A win tonight would mean a series sweep, the first for Toronto since the 2006-07 season, Bryan Colangelo's first at the helm.

However the Magic have hardly been the stepping stone that many expected, so the Raps can't go into this one thinking it will be a walk in the park. A much more aggressive display on the glass (the Magic have been getting killed on the boards of late), a steady hand on the ball (Magic are the worst team in the league at forcing turnovers) and another balanced attack though should give Toronto its 16th win on the season.

GO RAPS!
