The Orlando Magic continue a three-game roadtrip, and open a back-to-back set, Tuesday night north of the border when they take on the Toronto Raptors.

Tipoff between Orlando and Toronto is set for 7:30 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: Nikola Vucevic scored 27 points, including 17 in the third quarter, but couldn't lift Orlando past the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. Led by 22 points from rookie wing Bojan Bogdanovic, the Nets ended the Magic's winning streak at two games. The Magic shot 52 percent and converted eight three-pointers despite the loss.

Toronto's last time out: The Raptors cruised past the hapless, winless Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, 120-88, to improve to 6-1 on the young season. All-Star swingman DeMar DeRozan led six Raptors in double-figure scoring with 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting.

The last meeting: These teams met on November 1st in Orlando, a 108-95 victory. Toronto's starting backcourt of DeRozan and Kyle Lowry combined for 47 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals, and no turnovers in a dominant performance, negating a balanced offensive attack from the Magic, each of whose starters reached double-figures in scoring. Toronto doubled Orlando in free-throw attempts, trying 48 freebies to Orlando's 24. The loss was the Magic's eighth in a row to the Raptors.
