Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic (By: Miyagi)
Orlando leads the series 1-0 after that big upset against Toronto in the first game and surprisingly it came through the hands of D.J Augustin who had a career game (25p, 4/5 3P) and he had an answer for the Raptors every time they made a push and sealed the deal with that ballsy 3P shot in Orlando's last possession with 3'' remaining.
Things could have been different, as the Raptors started the third quarter very strong, they had the momentum, they regained the lead at the same time that Orlando was collapsing but the Magic never gave up fighting and luck did the rest.
The truth is that despite Orlando's great defense and even greater effort, the Raptors were decent offensively (at least better than what i was expecting) but they tried to do something they are not familiar with by taking many long-range shots (12-36 3P) at the same time that they had just 40 points from inside the paint and a very low total of 14 free throws (9-14).
Toronto will be better prepared this time, Lowry (0/7 FG) can't have another scoreless game and it will also be tough for Orlando to replicate that performance, with the same energy and effort defensively. The Raptors should score above 111 points today and get the much-needed win.
