When: Wednesday, November 20, 7:30 PM. ET.

The Toronto Raptors will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night.

Magic Going For Fourth Consecutive Win

The Magic have taken advantage of their recent homestand and have won four of their last five games since they got back from a two-game road trip. They will hit the road again on Wednesday and will be trying to pick up their fourth win in a row and fifth win in their last six games when they play the Raptors.

Evan Fournier finished with 25 points and nine rebounds, while Markelle Fultz, who helped the team get a last-minute stop to win the game, finished with 19 points and three rebounds.

Orlando’s defense has been very good this season, with the team holding opponents to 101.5 points per game. They gave up 121 points in their last game and will need to play better if they want to pick up their first road win of the year.

Raptors Going For Third Win In Four Games

The Raptors are coming off a big win over the Charlotte Hornets and will be trying to keep the momentum going with a win over the Magic on Wednesday, which will give them their second win in a row and third win in their last four games.

Toronto has played well offensively, averaging 113.3 points per game, which is ninth in the league. The team is shooting 46 percent from the field and 40 percent from three-point range.

This is an interesting matchup between two good defensive teams, with the Magic holding opponents to 101.5 points per game, while the Raptors are giving up 106.1 points per game.
