[TORONTO] — The Toronto Raptors played host to the Orlando Magic last night and the homeside took care of business. A 131-112 win has the Raps and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Toronto's record up to 45-29 on the season, while the loss drags Orlando's down to 27-47. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Raptors. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Cory Joseph's 15 points, 6 rebounds, 13 assists, 1 blocks and 0 steals in 29 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Joseph, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Raptors. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Orlando back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Raptors in the victory was Elfrid Payton and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Joseph, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Payton posted 22 points, 1 rebounds and 9 assists in the win.

Perhaps just as significant if not more so than any individual performance, was Toronto's ability to take the Magic out of their game. A stellar defensive performance by the Raptors helped insure the victory from the moment the two teams set foot on the court. Should the club continue to excel on both sides of the ball, the rest of the league better start planning accordingly.

Up next for the reeling Raps will be a date with the Orlando Magic while the visiting Magic will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
