Matchup Overview

The Toronto Raptors will be looking for a measure of revenge on Tuesday, April 16th when they host the Orlando Magic in Game 2 of their best-of-seven first-round series. Tip off is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. EST at Scotiabank Arena.

Raptors Came Up Short in Game 1

Game 1 was deja vu all over again for the Raptors, whose history of choking in the playoffs has been well documented. Toronto was outscored by Orlando 22-9 during the game’s final 31 minutes and gave up a crucial three-pointer to DJ Augustin with 3.4 seconds remaining to seal their fate. The Drakes have now lost five straight playoff games dating back to last year’s second round sweep against LeBron James and the Cavaliers.

Augustin Was Magical

In addition to hitting the game-winning basket, Augustin also hit a diving layoff with 44 seconds remaining to tie the game. The 31-year-old journeyman finished with 25 points on 9-13 shooting and set the tone for Orlando with his aggressive, fearless play.

Oddmakers Haven’t Lost Faith in Raptors Yet

Despite losing, the Raptors enter Game 2 as 9.5 point favorites against the Magic. They’ll need a significantly better performance from point guard Kyle Lowry, who was shut out in 34 minutes of court time. The five-time All-Star was 0-7 from the field and saw his career playoff scoring average dip to 15.0 points per game.

The Raptors will need a significantly better performance from point guard Kyle Lowry, who was shut out in 34 minutes of court time.

The Raptors will also need to squeeze out more production from Serge Ibaka, who managed just five points in 19 minutes off the bench. When he’s hitting his threes Toronto is an entirely different team.
