Raptors go the final 6:10 without a field goal, trail 52-44. This game's gonna be a problem.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors have gone 6:08 without a field goal. 44.2s remaining in the half. Magic on a 14-2 run. Raps down 6

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors defence without Amir Johnson is sub-optimal. Magic nearly up to 60% from floor.

Michael Grange

Its not so much that JV was double-teamed there as he dribbled into two guys ....

Ryan Wolstat

Lou isn’t getting those Bump and Lou calls anymore. Point of emphasis with officials?

Josh Lewenberg

JV knocks down a pair of FTs to stop Orlando's 10-0 run. Raptors went 3:49 without scoring a point.

Eric Koreen

Weird lineup for Fields to be in.

Eric Smith

the #Magic were down 24-14 in Q1. Since then they've out-scored TOR 30-18. #Raptors now trail 44-42. Q2; 3:50. ORL: 55.9% FG. #RTZ

Michael Grange

So ... was GV bitching because Kyle didn't find him in the corner? Or because he didn't get the call on his wild drive? Hard to tell.

Eric Koreen

Tobias Harris is on an 8-0 run, and the Magic are up by 2.

Eric Koreen

The Magic are playing some awesome defence.

Ryan Wolstat

The Bucks really didn’t want to trade Tobias Harris to rent J.J. Redick but owner pretty much forced their hand at time.

Michael Grange

That was a very nice pass by JV. At least we've seen one ...

Eric Koreen

Terrence Ross cannot back down Tobias Harris.

Ryan Wolstat

Might be no baguettes for Fournier for a while after that one.

Josh Lewenberg

Can't stop Tyler Hansbrough, can only hope to not be smushed by him.

Michael Grange

Man, Fournier must have got rocked by Tyler Hansbrough ... Had to stop halfway up the tunnel to gather himself ...

Eric Smith

Fournier takes an inadvertent elbow from Hansbrough. He's leaving the game, for now. #Magic #Raptors #RTZ

Eric Koreen

Tyler Hansbrough has damaged Evan Fournier, just by being himself.

Josh Lewenberg

Lakers have 5 assists on 7 first-half field goals. Good to see they're sharing the ball.

Eric Smith

the #Raptors lead the #Magic 38-34 with 8:44 to go in Q2. Both teams SCORCHING on offence...TOR: 59.3% FG. ORL: 57.7% FG #RTZ

Tom Liston

#Medeo #QHR RT @dinglemichael US Market Study: Virtual #Health Care Visits Cost Less Than In-Office Care ihealthbeat.org/articles/2014/…

Josh Lewenberg

This is the 9th game DeRozan's missed. I believe its the 1st he's watched from the bench. Had said it was too tough for him to be spectator

Eric Koreen

The Orlando Magic's plan of Go At Greivis Vasquez has been effective.

Eric Smith

end of Q1. #Raptors lead the #Magic 28-25. Orlando closed Q1 on an 11-4 run though. #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

Magic are in great shape. Some nice building blocks, cap room a bunch of extra seconds and a first coming down line …

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors lead Magic 28-25 after 1Q. Both teams shooting 50%+. Balanced attack for Raps - Ross has 6 pts on a couple treys.

Tom Liston

Kobe -32 in 16 min. Hard to do. RT @Baxter Holmes And the Pacers now lead the Lakers by 30+ (48-17). And there’s still 5 min until halftime.

Eric Koreen

Raps up 28-25 after a q. Both teams shooting above 50%.

Michael Grange

Orlando's got some pieces. If they keep things together they can be a playoff team this year.

Ryan Wolstat

Kyle O’Quinn checking in. One of the biggest out of nowhere good players I’ve seen in a long time.

Eric Koreen

The Pacers are shooting 44% and are up by 31 in the second quarter. That's almost impossible.

Eric Koreen

Lou Williams doesn't get creating-contact benefit of the doubt. Lou Williams will have revenge.

Ryan Wolstat

Rudy and Ben Gordon the hoggiest Huskies ever? Chuck V is up there too.

Eric Smith

haha... i did indeed bloomer! RT @lmbloom @Eric Smith ... Did you just coin Jonas the "Lethal-uinian"

Ryan Wolstat

If that last play doesn’t prove Landry Fields never wants to shoot, I don’t know what does. No real reason to make that crazy pass.

Michael Grange

Clever back screen by Fields on the Ross triple; clever feed to Amir there. Fields' NBA tombstone will read: "Clever. Can't shoot."

Eric Smith

Great minutes & hustle from Fields so far. 2 triples from Ross as well. TOR: 53.8% FG. #raptors lead #Magi 17-12. Q1, 4:42. #RTZ

Payal Doshi

He definitely believes in #Magic. RT @Ryan Wolstat: Landry “Magic” Fields.

Ryan Wolstat

Golliver, get on that Landry Fields show-stopper.

Eric Koreen

I'm not sure what just happened, but I believe Landry Fields threw a behind-the-back pass on a fast break in which they weren't guarding him

Josh Lewenberg

Landry Fields behind the back to Amir in transition. Drink (probably twice).

Ryan Wolstat

Landry “Magic” Fields.

Ryan Wolstat

Cancel the Terrence Ross stinks at home narrative.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey had a pre-game pep talk w/ Amir re: closing out on Frye (who got off to quick start in last meeting) - Making a concerted effort early

Eric Koreen

The Orlando Magic are encouraging Landry Fields to shoot. You're surprised?

Michael Grange

Great line by Dwane Casey about getting Jonas to be wilder with his elbows rebounding: "The dentist office is open tomorrow"

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors are 2-1 with Landry Fields starting this season and 4-1 past two seasons.

Josh Lewenberg

Valanciunas ranks 7th in rebounding rate at the centre position (min 15.0 MPG). Ranked higher: Cousins, Jordan, Asik, Chandler, Drummond, KG

Eric Koreen

It is not 1 in 82, because DRAKE IS HERE ON DRAKE NIGHT EVE. #DrakeOrNoDrake

Eric Smith

We're on the air LIVE - now - on @fan590 ... with the @Toronto Raptors & #Magic. Join us! @Paul Jones @Eric Smith #Raptors #RTZ<

Nothing says 1 in 82 quite like the Raptors playing host to Orlando on a Monday evening the week before Christmas vacation.

Michael Grange

Some day the Oilers won't be awful & I'll miss reading @SportsnetSpec explain exactly how awful. Good stuff -- sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/eak…

Eric Smith

We clean up ok. lol. Sears catalogue! RT @rapsfan_Sheri @Eric Smith well don't the 2 of you look nice :) Love Anthony Parker & the pic!

Eric Smith

As good as he was as a player, he was/is a better person RT @BroadgrainJeff @Eric Smith @Toronto Raptors one of my all time fav raps

Eric Koreen

The Hornets are down 25-4 eight minutes in. They're going to trade Lance mid-game.

Raptors Dance Pak

So much fun hanging out with the amazing @got2bcan team pre-game! #lovegot2b #rdp #RTZ instagram.com/p/wpbMWILTbw/

Ryan Wolstat

Casey on Mike Malone/Kings says "You've got to coach the team you have. You can't play a certain way you want to play.”

Paul Jones

#Raptors 6-0 on 1st night of back to back 3-2 on 2nd night. Have won 9 straight vs #magic #rtz

Ryan Wolstat

"He kind of stirs everything up when he's in there.” - Dwane Casey accurately describes Kyle Lowry.

Eric Smith

Hanging w/ one of the all-time good PEOPLE, former @raptors G/F, Anthony Parker. #rtz #raptors instagram.com/p/wpZJJ2I25V/

Ryan Wolstat

Dwane Casey on Victor Oladipo: "He's got boosters in his tennis shoes because he's ultra fast and ultra strong."

Doug Smith

We'll be here about 7:30 p.m. to talk Raptors-Magic if you'd like to stop by: thestar.com/sports/doug_sm…

Josh Lewenberg

Casey on Oladipo: "He's playing really well for 'em. He's got boosters in his tennis shoes because he's ultra fast and ultra strong"

Eric Koreen

On Malone getting fired, Dwane Casey said you have to coach the personnel you have. So you can guess what he thinks about it.

Eric Koreen

LRT: Best tweet of the year.

Eric Smith

Tonight at @fan590, I'll have the call of the @raptors & #magic along with @paul__jones. 7pm pre game. 730pm tip off. #rtz #raptors

Morgan Thorne

Game day heading downtown .. raptors take on the Orlando Magic !!!! Let's go Raptors #WeTheNorth

Michael Grange

Okay, Kobe was playing vs. kids 3yrs older than him -- articles.philly.com/1995-04-08/spo… -- thanks to @Holly MacKenzie for digging that up. /6

Michael Grange

Otherwise I call BS that Kobe -- just 5 summers before being drafted -- went scoreless for a a summer vs. his peers. Context please. /5.

Michael Grange

So, note to Jeter-in-chief: a few simple questions would make your athlete's penned stories a lot more powerful and believable. /4

Michael Grange

But ... what kind of league was 12 yo Kobe Bryant playing in that he NEVER scored? Was it a men's pro league? U14? 3/

Michael Grange

And that experience and Michael Jordan's example of being 'cut' as freshman inspired his road to greatness, which may be true ... /2

Tom Liston

#Vivekball RT @Eric Koreen The best part of Vivek's 4-on-5 strategy is that it assumes NBA players are bad at offence.

Michael Grange

Why Jeter's site is weak: Kobe says he didn't score a single point as a 12-year-old in Philly summer league. theplayerstribune.com/kobe-passes-jo… /1

Eric Koreen

Again, on the Raptors' front court, where Dwane Casey is still looking for a three-dimensional player: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/12/15/tor…

Eric Koreen

The best part of Vivek's 4-on-5 strategy is that it assumes NBA players are bad at offence.

Tom Liston

#Vivek RT @haralabob This 4 on 5 thing will lead to a wide open corner 3 pt shot for nearly every team that can even remotely pass or drive.

Patrick Patterson

Last nights game.. Was it only my tv or did it really skip from 3min to 1min in OT for everyone else too? #Raptors

Ryan Wolstat

John Wall has played out of his mind, Kyle Lowry has been just behind him, yet expect Irving, Rose or Rondo to get voted starter for East.

Mariah

Just live well, be happy and remember that you can't fix everybody & not everybody needs fixing

Mariah

Sidenote **my previous tweet is a super general tweet just to be considered in some life situations.

Ryan Wolstat

John Wall and James Harden are players of the week. Jonas Valanciunas gets his first honourable mention.

Eric Koreen

Wall and Harden are your players of the week. Jonas Valanciunas gets an honourable mention!

Eric Koreen

Cool cat @BlakeMurphyODC with a little more on the Raptors' defensive/rebounding issues: raptorsrepublic.com/2014/12/15/rap…

Eric Koreen

Congrats to Craig MacTavish, new interim interim head coach of the Edmonton Oilers.

Mariah

Sometimes the wrong people need your love, just don't cut yourself fixing their broken pieces.

Eric Koreen

The Kings were behaving so rationally there for a minute.

Raptors Dance Pak

Happy #Monday ! It's game day --> #Raptors vs. Magic @ 730PM
