The Toronto Raptors are red-hot, and the Orlando Magic have the second-worst record in the league. And when shooters like Toronto's Kyle Lowry and Terrence Ross get hot against a bad team, they can put up crazy numbers in a hurry.
That's what happened on Wednesday night, as the Raptors' snipers hit their first nine three-pointers of the game: five from Lowry, two from Ross and two from Greivis Vasquez.
According to the National Post's Eric Koreen, the Raptors haven't made nine straight threes in nearly a decade.

The streak was snapped when Vasquez missed a three in the second quarter. But the ultimate three-point demon, Steve Novak, knocked down back-to-back treys shortly after that first miss.
