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.
