Continuing their win streak from the regular season, the Orlando Magic have gained another win in their first game against the Toronto Raptors.

The win streak which carried over from the final games of the regular season, was at four games, with the recent win being against the Charlotte Hornets.

What makes the win against the Raptors significant is the fact that, outside of those in the Magic fan base, not many people saw the Magic as a serious threat.

It doesn’t take a detective, or much effort really, to see that there is a lot of bias against the Magic.

For instance, going on any social media platform, you’ll notice how many Toronto “fans” mention how the Magic will get swept or how it was a mistake for them to make it.

Regardless of the naysayers, the Magic are showing many that they are not a team to take lightly.

This could be seen by how the Magic’s starting point guard, DJ Augustin dropped 25-points, which was the same amount as Kawhi Leonard.

Another thing that makes the Magic’s playoff appearance noteworthy would be how, the them and the Lakers, the team that Dwight Howard joined prior to the rebuild, hasn’t made the playoffs since then.

Additionally, speaking of the Lakers, forward Kyle Kuzma had some interesting things to say about both teams.

Kuzma stated in an interview about how regardless of the Lakers’ record he would rather play there, than compete in Orlando and not be discussed.

The Magic will play their second playoff game against the Raptors this upcoming Tuesday.

My name is Jonathan David and I am from a small town called Green Cove Springs, located in northeast Florida. Originally from Miami, Florida, my family moved up north, as I was entering the fourth grade. Once we moved, I eventually started getting into sports a lot more. I did soccer, basketball and running and pole-vaulting; however, the main sport that I pretty much keep up with is, basketball, specifically the NBA. Although I’ll occasionally watch track and field if it’s on ESPN. There were many reasons why I got into basketball, besides it looking like fun, one reason was because I wanted to be like Bugs Bunny from Space Jam, not Michael Jordan, but Bugs Bunny, and while my dream of being an animated character hasn’t panned out, I still enjoy playing and watching the sport. My favorite NBA team is the Orlando Magic, and I’ve been a fan since Lebron was in Miami, so when they eventually get good, people can’t say I’m a bandwagon fan.
