The Toronto Raptors are on an seven-game win streak and will now host the Orlando Magic whose five-game win streak came to an end last night after a tough loss against the Chicago Bulls.
When: Feb 24, 2019 3:30 pm ET
Where: Scotiabank Arena, Toronto
The Raptors are having a great year once again and the cornerstone has of this success has been Kawhi Leonard who is bringing it all on both ends of the floor.
They have a stacked roster that can make some noise in the postseason. Their trade deadline acquisition of Marc Gasol bolstered the bench and the Raptors are currently on an impressive seven-game win streak.
The predicted Toronto Raptors’ starting line-up:
Pascal Siakam (F), Kawhi Leonard (F), Serge Ibaka (C), Danny Green (G) and Kyle Lowry (G)
At 27-33, the Orlando Magic are fighting hard to make it to the postseason. The Hornets who are at the eighth spot are not far ahead and consistent performances can definitely help the Magic sneak into the playoffs.
They entered the All-Star weekend with a five-game win streak but that ended up last night after their one-point loss against the Chicago Bulls at home. They will be looking to bounce back with a win in this game.
The predicted Orlando Magic’s starting line-up:
Aaron Gordon (F), Jonathan Isaac (F), Nikola Vucevic (C), D.J. Augustin (G) and Even Fourier (G)
Few Facts and Statistics:
- Toronto Raptors Last 10: W-L 8-2
- Orlando Magic Last 10: W-L 7-3
- Last Matchup on 10th Jan 2019: Raptors 87 – Magic 116
The Raptors may enter the game as the favorites but do not sleep on the Magic as they showed in their last two games against the Raptors that they can defeat them.
While the Magic lost the first game by just two points, they won their second matchup in a 29-point blowout. However, things are going to very different this time around as they are playing on Toronto’s homecourt.
