|November 1st: Magic 125, Raptors 116|
The Toronto Raptors have the dubious distinction of leading the league in offense (115.2 points per 100 possessions) and bringing up the rear in defense (116.4 points allowed per 100 possessions). If the visiting Orlando Magic can maintain their hot shooting from the last time these teams met--Orlando sunk 17 three-pointers in 29 attempts, without Vince Carter or Rashard Lewis, who will both play today--the Raptors won't stand much of a chance. That, and Dwight Howard, for whom Toronto has no answer.
But don't discount the Raptors. They always play Orlando tough, and although the Magic's defense has improved lately, Toronto's high-octane offense will present them a challenge.
