Magic look to keep hot streak going against struggling TOR
TOR is led by Mike James, who averages 20.1 ppg (43.9% 3 pt %). He has scored 32 or more pts in 4 consecutive games while shooting 54.2% during that time. Morris Peterson (16.4 ppg) and rookie Charlie Villanueva (12.7 ppg) are the only other Raptors in double figures. TOR averages 101.1 ppg and allows 103.6 ppg. The Magic average 94.7 ppg and allow 96 ppg. During their 9 game losing streak, TOR has allowed 112.6 ppg.
The Magic will try to keep their slim playoff hopes alive, and prevent a TOR sweep of the Magic this season. The way the Magic have been playing, they should have no problems, as they should easily top the 100 pt mark and shoot 50%+, going for their 11th home win in a row. The Magic are solid 9 1/2 pt favorites (www.pinnaclesports.com).
