The Orlando Magic look to keep rolling Friday at Amway Center when the Toronto Raptors come to town.

Tipoff between Orlando and Toronto is set for 7:00 PM Eastern. Fox Sports Florida and ESPN 580 AM will offer live coverage in the Orlando market.

Orlando's last time out: The Magic showed a lot of moxie in fighting back for a narrow victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. Chicago led by as much as eight points in the fourth quarter before Orlando's rally, which Victor Oladipo capped with a driving layup before the final buzzer, breaking a 103-all tie. Oladipo led all players with 23 points, including the game-winner, while Nik Vučević added 22 points and seven rebounds. The Magic withstood an efficient 19-point outing from Jimmy Butler, but limited him to just two points on 1-of-4 shooting in the final period.

Toronto's last time out: The Raps blasted the Charlotte Hornets, 92-74, on the road Wednesday to snap a two-game skid. DeMar DeRozan led the way with 18 points, and four other Raptors reached double-figure scoring. Tyler Hansbrough, returning to the state where he starred collegiately, tallied a 12-point, 12-rebound double-double. Charlotte shot just 34.6 percent from the floor in defeat.

Lou Williams sizzled with 18 points in 28 minutes off the bench, leading the hosts. Tobias Harris paced Orlando with 18 points. The Raptors kept Vučević in check, limiting him to 13 points on 6-of-13 shooting in 35 minutes.
