Game day preview

From the Magic press release:

Sunday, Nov. 22. 12:30 p.m.
Air Canada Centre
Toronto, Ontario

The Magic close out their four-game week on Sunday when they visit the Toronto Raptors at 12:30 p.m. ET. In their first meeting this season, the Magic torched the Raptors with their deadly outside shooting. Orlando connected on 17 of its 32 shots from downtown as it notched a 125-116 victory in Toronto. The Magic’s backcourt tandem of J.J. Redick and Jameer Nelson played a huge role in the squad’s success. Nelson erupted for 30 points, while Redick tallied 27 points, six rebounds and five assists. Dwight Howard dominated in the paint, notching 24 points and 11 rebounds.

The Magic are 3 point favorites

    I expect the Magic's offense to get back on track today after that defensive struggle against the Celtics Friday night.

    Three weeks ago, Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick combined for 57 points and the Magic scored 125 points in their win over the Raptors in Toronto. Today, Nelson is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, and Redick probably won't play much more than 10 minutes with Carter back.

    There's always a chance the Magic could have a letdown here after their tough win in Boston, but I'm confident the Magic can come away with the victory.

    I expect better numbers than the 41% shooting, 58% FT shooting, and 21 turnovers that the Magic put up against Boston.

    It's great the Magic proved they can win a game by playing great defense when they play sub-par offensively like they did against the Celtics.

    Today, its the offense's turn to pick up their game.
