The Raptors recorded just their second road win of the young season last night in a tough battle against conference favourite Kazaam and the Miami Heat. With Vinsanity hardly contributing with just five points on 2 for 9 shooting, the win was fueled by the return of Donyell Marshall who added sixteen points to the (almost) full team effort. Marshall’s return adds size inside along with gifted outside shooting. The Raps will to continue their claw back to a respectable road record when they take on the Orlando Magic tonight.
The Magic, Shaq-Diesal’s first team, have drastically improved this year with the resurgence of oft-injured forward Grant Hill. Unfortunately Toronto fans won’t have the opportunity to curse and spit at the screen tonight, as ex-Raptor Tracy McGrady has taken his non-passing, poor shot selecting ways westward. McGrady teamed up with China’s tallest export in Yao Ming and the Houston Rockets in the off season. Even though T-Mac won’t be competing tonight, he’ll still add more to the game than Vince Carter.
