Raptors versus Magic Saturday December 3rd 2022

The Toronto Raptors are set to take on the Orlando Magic.


The Toronto Raptors are coming off two tough losses against the Pelicans and Nets. Despite their best efforts, they could not come away with a victory in either game. They'll be looking to get back on track as they take on the Orlando Magic tonight at Home. Homecourt might be what the doctor ordered, as the Raptors are currently really good at home. In addition, to put it mildly, the Magic have been playing poorly as of late. They lost their seventh consecutive game against the Cavaliers last night and are only 1-9 in their last ten games overall.


Last night, the Raptors got off to a slow start and found themselves down by double digits early in the first quarter. They trailed by 36 points midway into the second quarter and 93-72 at the start of the fourth.


Last night's game was disappointing to watch as the Raptors let an opportunity to bounce back slip through their fingers against the Brooklyn Nets.


Raptors are starting Koloko instead of Thad Young in the starting lineup, hoping to change their fortune tonight. Koloko should provide length and shot-blocking for the desperate Raptors team.


Orland is young, but they have the firepower of their impressive rookie Paolo Banchero to steal a win on the road. Banchero is a big issue on the floor, averaging 22.6 points and 3.6 assists per game.

The Raptors must put together a complete effort if they want to come away with a win against Orlando tonight. Tipoff is set for 8 PM EST, and you can catch all the action on TSN. Be sure to tune in to see which team comes out on top!
