Raptors vs Magic Gameday Thread: "Keep it Moving"

The Toronto Raptors face another underwhelming opponent tonight record-wise, but will need to put on a much better performance than they have of late if they hope to secure the W.

Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic

March 30, 2014

Sportsnet One - 6:00 PM EST

And so "Trap Week" comes to a conclusion this evening.

The Toronto Raptors travel to Orlando to take on the Magic in a battle of two teams going in opposite directions. The Raptors are looking for their 42nd win on the season while the Magic I'm not sure are looking for their 22nd. No, the Magic find themselves in the position the Raps have occupied the past few seasons, hoping fortune shines their way and the draft lottery gods reward them with a top pick.

Again though, that doesn't mean this match is an easy win for the Dinos. Lately the club has been in a habit of playing down to the level of its competition and either losing, or very nearly losing, as a result.

As I mentioned in the preview this morning therefore, I'm hoping to see a reversal of this trend.
