Magic vs Raptors Gameday Thread: Bring on the Magic

Unfortunately, we likely won't get to see DeMar DeRozan and Arron Afflalo go mano-a-mano.

The Orlando Magic are the realest. Or if you're a Bun B fan, the Trillest. The Magic are one of the few teams this NBA season who from the get go knew they weren't headed to the playoffs, and have played the season out in a rather dutiful way, losing more than winning, but playing their youngsters as much as possible.

And there have been a few pleasant surprises along the way, namely the play of swingman Arron Afflalo, who's blossomed into a potential All-Star candidate this season. (Much to the chagrin of Jack Armstrong.)

But this is still a club that's 12 and 33, and Toronto should get this win, bottom line.

DeRozan or no DeRozan.

With an impending West Coast swing, the Dinos need W's from games like this against some of the East's lesser foes.
