Things looked good early on. The Toronto Raptors jumped out to an early advantage against the Orlando Magic, leading for essentially all of the first 22 minutes of the game. After that, things fell apart. Orlando took the lead with just under four minutes remaining in the second quarter, and never gave it back.
The margin grew to 31 at one point in the third quarter. From 6:00 remaining in the second until the end of the third quarter, Orlando outscored Toronto 56-21. That is less than ideal.
So what did we learn from the Magic beatdown?
