By closing out the Golden State Warriors last night, the Toronto Raptors got that fourth quarter monkey off their backs. A bit.

Now they have to turn around and take on the 24 and 14 Orlando Magic.

The Magic are coming off a solid win over the Milwaukee Bucks and look to be getting back on track in terms of the Eastern Conference playoff race. Toronto's going to have to use a similar strategy tonight as they did last night, when they limited Golden State's long-range looks, only tonight the Raps also have to be concerned with the big guy down low; Dwight Howard.

This definitely won't be an easy one for TO and while the Raps have played Orlando pretty well the past few seasons, the Dinos have also been susceptible to poor second games in back-to-backs. In fact a win tonight would make it only the third time this season Toronto has won back-to-back matches...
