Raptors 123, Magic 88

- The word “cruised” is overused in sports to describe an easy win, but this was the first true cruise control victory of the season for the Raptors as far as I can remember. The Raps closed the first quarter on a 25-6 run to take a 15-point lead into the second quarter, padded the advantage to 20 by halftime, never let the Magic get closer than 11 in the second half, and finished with the ridiculous 35-point W. There have been games where the Raptors pulled away late to make the final score look like more of a blowout than the game really was, but against a very depleted and beat up Magic team, they kept the foot on the gas and never really let the result come into question. It was a nice change for fans.
