NBA Playoffs 2019: Toronto Raptors vs. Orlando Magic Game 2 live stream

NBA Sharp Report: All 3 Tuesday Matchups Attracting Professional Action

"Well, considering (how Game 1 played out)", Nurse said. They also faced each other at the 2017 FIBA EuroBasket tournament in Romania, with Gasol and the Spanish national team defeating Montenegro 99-60 (Vucevic finished with 16 points and seven rebounds).

Playing at the Amway Center, where the Magic haven't lost since February 22 - a nine-game win streak - the Raptors will need to match Tuesday's defensive effort that, particularly in the opening minutes, was as good as its ever been.

Mulling those questions over on Monday, Raptors coach Nick Nurse pointed the finger at himself for Lowry's offensive woes.

"Tonight, he was charging up the floor and pushing the ball fast, shooting, driving, kicking, making steals, hands on everything, rebounding". "He was doing it all".

Those books were quickly hit with Raptors action, and by the end of Saturday night Toronto was up to -9.5 behind roughly 80% of early bets, which is where the line remained for a few days.

"So we got ahead of the game".

Though Leonard reveals virtually no emotion in his postgame remarks, his sparse comments offer insights into how he assembles the sort of performance that paced the Raptors on Tuesday night.

"Things will open up for him when we start knocking down shots", Gordon said. Lowry bounced back in a major way, and it wasn't just with his 22 points. "Just reading angles, reading the backside of the defense". He didn't develop into an All-Star because of his one-on-one skills or athleticism; he got there by combining the basketball IQ that all elite point guards possess with the attitude and fearlessness of an overlooked backup.

Four straight wins, and not a single game ending in their opponents' favors. "That was not the same team we saw all year long". Many teams seem to have that "us against the world" mentality, but for the CBJ, it seemed even more so.

"Tonight he was just in a groove, getting downhill, getting to his spots", Lowry said. They help each other. I thought we had Kyle in a really good place all the last half of the season. "If I do - just pass it".

The Raptors' assists have skyrocketed since Gasol was added in February. He then had four post-ups in Game 4, way down from the 9.2 he averaged during the regular season.

Pressed for more details on how he is containing Vucevic now that the series is two games old, Gasol spoke in much more vague terms. Both were emotional touchstones Tuesday night.

Aaron Gordon scored 20 points, Terrence Ross added 15 and Evan Fournier, 10, for the Magic, who split the regular-season series 2-2 with the Raptors, who were top seeds previous year but were swept in the semi-finals by Cleveland.

His Orlando counterpart Clifford gave an explanation before Game 2 of his approach to the use of star players, and though it certainly wasn't intended as advice for Nurse, it might as well have been.

"I don't listen to what the outside people say". "I've just got to figure out a way to be more aggressive, be more efficient offensively". The Toronto Raptors are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game.

The Magic stunned the Raptors with a late flurry in Game 1, helping build on Toronto's discouraging history in playoff openers. Augustin and the rest of the Orlando ball handlers.

Nikola Vucevic, who shot 3-for-14 in Game 1, struggled again in Game 2, going 3-of-7 and scoring six points.
