PREGAME INFO


Last Season's Results: The Magic dropped two of their three meetings with the Raptors last season.

Nov. 12: Dwight Howard fired off 25 points and Jameer Nelson added 23, but Orlando fell in the final seconds in a 110-106 home loss.

Jan. 21: Howard throttled Toronto to the tune of 31 points and 19 rebounds as the Magic beat the Raptors by 40 points.

April 3: Howard and Nelson combined for 52 points, but Toronto edged Orlando.

Key Matchup: Ryan Anderson vs. Andrea Bargnani

Instant Analysis: Although Bargnani will rotate between power forward and center, the long-distance dialing big man will likely always be covered by the Magic's four-man so that Howard can patrol the interior.

Bargnani did his share of damage against the Magic last season, averaging 19 points per game.

“He’s one of the best shooters in the world and we want to make sure we utilize that,” Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey recently told the Toronto Sun.

Other Notables: Howard averaged 29 points and 12 rebounds per game against the Raptors last season. Orlando is 17-11 at home all-time vs. Toronto.
