Magic Vs. Raptors Recap: Ryan Anderson Leads Orlando To 117-101 Win Over Toronto

The Orlando Magic won their third straight game on Monday night, defeating the Toronto Raptors 117-101 at Air Canada Centre. The Magic had one of their best offensive performances in some time, shooting 44 percent from the arc and nearly 55 percent from the floor. The Raptors never really threatened in the second half as the Magic controlled the game with a double-digit lead throughout.

Ryan Anderson continued his breakout season with one of his best games of the season as he hit eight three-pointers and led all scorers with 28 points. Dwight Howard added 23 points and 10 boards, while also hitting seven of 10 free-throw attempts. Led by Gary Forbes and Linas Kleiza, the Raptors shot the ball well also but they could not stop the Magic on the other end and get back into it.

Orlando now heads to Madison Square Garden for a showdown with the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.

Magic Vs. Raptors Score Update: Ryan Anderson And Dwight Howard Pace Orlando To 12-Point Halftime Lead

The Orlando Magic shot the lights out and dominated the paint in the first half at Air Canada Centre to take a 61-49 lead over the Toronto Raptors after 24 minutes. The Magic shot 54 percent from the floor and 47 percent from three-point range to jump out to the double digit victory with a 33-point second quarter.

The frontcourt duo of Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson were simply magnificent in the first half, combining for 34 of the Magic's 61 points. Anderson did all his work from behind the arc as he continues his breakout season. He drilled six three-pointers in the first half to score all his 18 points. Howard, on the other hand, has done his typical work down low in the paint and getting to the free-throw line. He has 16 points and eight boards for the Magic. With the double-digit lead, Orlando will need to avoid the offensive disappearing act we've seen every now and again in the third and fourth quarters this season.
