D.J. Augustin’s last-second three did more than just give the Orlando Magic an upset victory over the Raptors.
It set Twitter on fire.
Magic fans celebrated. Raptors fans cried. And everyone else seemed to have some fun at the expense of Toronto...and Kyle Lowry.
We’ve collected the best tweets of the night, much like we did when the Magic clinched a playoff berth, and delivered them to you. As always, the tweets speak for themselves...
The Magic closed as 9.5-point underdog today, their biggest upset win in a playoff game in franchise history.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) April 14, 2019
The Raptors are now 2-14 in Game 1s, the 2nd-worst record by any team in NBA history (min. 2 games). pic.twitter.com/Jqq7dE4nFc
but im sure dj augustin will save them https://t.co/jxWoBHAsyb— Raptors HQ (@RaptorsHQ) April 13, 2019
DJ Augustin is proof that a University of Texas alum can be clutch in the playoffs without hopping to a 73 win team.— Barry McCockiner (@SportsTalkBarry) April 13, 2019
DJ Augustin lived through the Bobcats. He has seen all of human suffering and as such fears nothing— PeoplesJaylenbrownLiberationFront 69☭ (@Riffs_Man) April 13, 2019
DJ Augustin on being referred to as a backup often: "I've been doubted all my life. I'm still here in year 11. I don't care what anybody says about me. We don't care what anybody says about this team. We're just going to keep fighting every day and try to pull off an upset."— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) April 13, 2019
RT if you scored as many points as Kyle Lowry— Cameron Magruder (@ScooterMagruder) April 13, 2019
We live in a world where Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon and Terrence Ross combined to shoot 8-for-35 and the Magic still won on the home court of one of the league’s best offensive and defensive teams.— Orlando Pinstriped Post (@OPPMagicBlog) April 13, 2019
Good teams find a way. As impressive a win as it gets for the Magic
The Orlando Magic haven’t lost a playoff game in seven years.— Kevin Clark (@bykevinclark) April 13, 2019
The Orlando Magic have won more playoff games than the Lakers since the Dwight Howard trade.— Justin Rowan (@Cavsanada) April 13, 2019
.@Raptors G Kyle Lowry hit @OrlandoMagic PG Michael Carter-Williams in the nose, causing blood to pour out. It's the first thing Lowry has hit all game. He's 0 of 7 from floor, 0 of 6 from 3 and 0 of 2 from FT line.— John Denton (@JohnDenton555) April 13, 2019

The Raptors have some bad luck in Game 1s.— SB Nation (@SBNation) April 13, 2019
They're 2-14 all-time after losing to the Magic pic.twitter.com/rEbTSY6y7p
Really polished stretch run by Orlando. They ran their stuff, patiently made the right reads based on what TOR's D did, and calmly knocked down open jumpers. Thought Cliff managed the rotation well. Toronto's Game 1 traditions live on!— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) April 14, 2019
So much for playoff experience. The top 2 youngest teams in the Eastern Conference playoffs just won a Game 1 on the road.— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) April 13, 2019
Let's all remember:— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) April 13, 2019
The Orlando Magic GM is John Hammond.
Remember what John Hammond owns?
That's right! John Hammond owns Jurassic Park and all their Raptors!
I’ve had a great Saturday watching the NBA playoff games! The Nets shocked the Sixers and the Magic did the same to the Raptors. Golden State played like champs today.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) April 14, 2019
safe space, right? okay...— Bomani Jones (@bomani_jones) April 13, 2019
anyone else turn on magic-raptors and think “yo, jameer nelson #hesstillintheleague” but realize that was dj augustin and you said “dj augustin, #hesstillintheleague?” because you possibly haven’t intentionally watched the magic in seven years?
Kyle Lowry makes $31.0 million this season. He just scored 0 points in a playoff game pic.twitter.com/IPHwYc36kt— Ashish Mathur (@amathur90) April 13, 2019
Y’all remember when Kevin Hart blocked Kyle Lowry? pic.twitter.com/frpLJnLvYm— NBA RETWEET (@RTNBA) April 14, 2019
Watching this Magic team I can tell the Players have really brought into Coach Clifford and his System!!! They are really competing and defensively they are in the right spots and making the right rotations!— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) April 13, 2019

Kyle Lowry is scoreless and has spent most of the game just randomly hitting people.— Hardwood Paroxysm (@HPbasketball) April 13, 2019
He has transformed into an 80’s NBA goon.
