From NBA.com: Another strong defensive effort helped the Toronto Raptors bounce back from a rare defeat on their home floor.
It wouldn’t seem they should have trouble getting another home win Sunday night against the Orlando Magic, who could be without leading scorer Arron Afflalo and haven’t won a road game in more than two months.
While Atlantic Division-leading Toronto (30-25) has won 11 of 14 at home, the Southeast-worst Magic have lost 14 straight on the road since winning in Chicago on Dec. 16.
A 94-92 loss to the Bulls on Wednesday snapped the Raptors’ three-game winning streak, but they responded by halting Cleveland’s six-game run with a 98-91 home win Friday.
Raptors:Kyle Lowry (G), DeMar DeRozan (G), Terrence Ross (F), Amir Johnson (F), Jonas Valanciunas (C)
Magic: Jameer Nelson (G), Victor Oladipo (G), Aaron Afflalo (F), Tobias Harris (F), Nikola Vucevic (C)
Magic: Arron Afflalo – sprained right ankle (day-to-day)
