The Toronto Raptors have a chance to pull even with the Memphis Grizzlies for the sixth-worst record in the NBA on Friday night when they take on the Orlando Magic at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Where to Watch

TSN and TSN 1050 will broadcast for Toronto. Bally Sports and FM 96.9 The Game will call the game for Orlando.

What to Watch For

  • Toronto appears quite determined to get into the bottom six and a date with the Magic shouldn't make that too difficult. Orlando has won seven of their last 10 games and the Raptors remain significantly shorthanded. It won't be surprising if Toronto drops this one and ties Memphis in the standings.
  • Immanuel Quickley has looked impressive in a bigger role for Toronto lately. He's averaging 22.6 points and 10.2 assists per game over the last five games without Scottie Barnes. Considering the Raptors were looking for him to be more aggressive when he first showed up, this stretch has certainly been a step in the right direction.
  • The Raptors are going to need more from Ochai Agbaji who turned in an 0-for-3 showing with zero points on Wednesday. His defense will be crucial against Orlando's wings, but it's his offense that Toronto really needs to improve.

Injury Report

Toronto will be without Barnes, Jakob Poeltl, RJ Barrett, Chris Boucher, DJ Carton, and Mouhamadou Gueye. Gary Trent Jr. remains questionable with a right groin injury.

The Magic are at full strength.

Game Odds

The Raptors are +8.5 point underdogs with an implied probability of 26.3%. The total for the game is 217.5.
