Magic at Raptors: Four factors analysis

Amir Johnson, Jameer Nelson, and José Calderón - John E. Sokolowski - US Presswire

Sunday afternoon, Orlando fell on the road once again as it failed to match Toronto's intensity in the fourth quarter.

The Orlando Magic fell to the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, 97-86, after collapsing in the fourth period. Orlando had built a three-point lead, its largest of the game, with 31.9 seconds to play in the third quarter. Toronto responded by going on a 25-9 run over the next 10 minutes to take control of the game.

On Lithuanian Heritage Day, Raptors forward Linas Kleiza scored 10 of his 14 points in the final 12 minutes. Amir Johnson nearly matched Orlando's fourth-quarter output (17 points) with 14 of his own, shooting 5-of-5 from the field and making just the fifth three-point basket of his eight-year career.

Turnovers did Orlando in once again, and they were exceptionally ill-timed, with five coming in the fourth period. Reserve combo guard E'Twaun Moore scored nine points in the fourth, playing all 12 minutes in the role J.J. Redick would have played if he hadn't been ill, but Moore couldn't carry the load himself.
