Magic vs. Raptors: Tired teams meet in Orlando

DeMar DeRozan - Chris Graythen

Orlando hosts Toronto on Saturday; both teams played Friday night.

The Orlando Magic face the Toronto Raptors for the third time on the season, but for the first time at home, on Saturday evening. Tipoff is set for 7 PM Eastern on Fox Sports Florida in the Orlando market. The Orlando Pinstriped Post GameThread will appear at 5 PM in this StoryStream and on the cover.

Orlando's last time out: Despite building a 17-point lead within the game's first six-plus minutes, the Magic dropped their fourth straight game minus Glen Davis in the nation's capital. Jordan Crawford scored 27 points to lead the Washington Wizards, who got 57 points from their bench, to the 105-97 win. Arron Afflalo continued his quietly productive December for Orlando, scoring 26 of his own to keep the Magic in it.

Toronto's last time out: The Raptors needed overtime to knock off the New Orleans Hornets, but accomplished that task on Friday, prevailing by a 104-97 final behind 30 points from DeMar DeRozan. The former Southern California standout logged 49 minutes in the victory, while Kyle Lowry provided 17 points and eight assists off the bench. The Raptors have won six of their last seven games.

The last meeting: On December 21st, Orlando fought back with a late 10-0 run to trim the host Raptors' lead to one point, but Toronto answered that rally, as it had every other comeback attempt Orlando made. DeRozan led five Raptors in double figures with 17 points. All five of rookie swingman Terrence Ross' field goals were three-pointers or dunks.
