As noted earlier today, this is a promising match-up for the Toronto Raptors.

The Orlando Magic haven't won a road game in over two months and could be without their best player, Arron Afflalo, for the match.

Contrast that to the Dinos, who minus the slip-up last Wednesday versus the Chicago Bulls, have been nearly unbeatable at the Air Canada Centre.

However this also has a bit of a "trap game" feel, especially considering the Magic are coming off a heroic victory over the New York Knicks in double OT where Victor Oladipo re-confirmed to the masses that he was the right choice for the Orlando Magic in last year's draft.

So the usual keys here for TO, a strong start, good work on the glass, take care of the basketball, get to the rim, etc, etc apply.
