Buss gave Magic Johnson permission to fire Walton at end of season

Doc Rivers has proven to be able to get as much out of his team as possible, even after the exodus of talent they experienced. Boucher's previous career best was the nine points he scored December 28 against the Orlando Magic. Toronto reached 1,000 made 3-pointers in a season for the first time. Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Magic vs. Raptors spread to jump on, all from the advanced model that is up more than $4,000 on its National Basketball Association picks this season, and find out.

So who wins Magic vs. Raptors?

Pascal Siakam's evolution has been no secret in the National Basketball Association.

After playing just nine games with San Antonio last season because of a quadriceps injury, Leonard has played in 60 as a Raptor, and says he is happy with how he feels heading into the post-season. "That's the most important thing", Siakam said.

That's the overriding sentiment of all the Orlando Magic players.

Johnson's awful announcement came before the Lakers' regular-season finale, in which they lost to the Portland Trail Blazers, a 104-101. He shot 40.6 per cent from the field and 32.9 per cent from three-point range. They've gone 22-9 since January 31, including an 11-2 finish to steal the No. 7 spot. Even better than merely making the postseason, a LeBron James led team had advanced all the way to the NBA Finals for eight consecutive seasons, with his time being split evenly during this eight-year run as a member of the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers respectively, while winning three championships. Seen-it-all centre Marc Gasol was added mid-season. There's no question about it. They would ignore the "experts" who predicted that they would win no more than 36 games. The 21-year-old scored in double figures 15 times, with two 20-point games. The Hornets front office demonstrating an intent to try to win soon, rather than rebuild, figures to be a major factor in whether All-Star point guard Kemba Walker chooses to re-sign. He has two years remaining on his contract, but only next season is guaranteed, a source told Wojnarowski.




"We needed this one, and I think our guys went out and took it". The Raptors will probably be alright without him given the depth mentioned above, but they'll need Lowry during crunch time if the games end up close.

Key reserve OG Anunoby had an emergency appendectomy Thursday night in Toronto, after being diagnosed with acute appendicitis.

Teague played in 42 games for the Minnesota this season, averaging 12.1 points and a career-best 8.2 assists in 30.1 minutes.

Vucevic was at his peak in his near triple-double against the Raptors in late December; performances such as those are capable of leading Orlando to a win. The Magic won the series 4-1. What you're not going to do is reinvent yourself because it's a playoff game.

"We did a good job", Leonard said of the season-long load-management plan for him. To follow the series, check out the schedule for all 7 games below.
