Magic vs Raptors: What Didn't Work
2. Carlos Arroyo on D- Arroyo was schooled mercilessly by the Toronto point guards, as T.J. Ford scored 20 points off the bench, and Jose Calderon added 14, mostly while being guarded by Arroyo. Keyon Dooling needs to get healthy quickly if the Magic are going to be able to compete with some of the better teams in the league.
3. Free throw shooting- Orlando shot 70% from the free throw line as they hit on 14 out of 20 shots. 70% isn't horrible, but it won't get it done against an elite opponent.
4. Bench play- The Magic didn't receive much from their bench on this evening as the Toronto reserves outscored Orlando, 40-22.
5. Another tough night by Evans- Maurice Evans struggled on both ends of the court as he shot just 1-7 from the field (0-4 from behind the three point line) for just 2 points. Evans was schooled repeatedly by Raptors guard Anthony Parker, who scored 17 points in the first half.
