Green scores in last second to lift Raptors over Magic 93-91

By Bill Fay, Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Danny Green made a fade-away jumper with less than a second remaining to lift the Toronto Raptors over the Orlando Magic 93-91 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). "Danny Green for the win... YES HE DID!" The @Raptors newcomer nails the GAME-WINNER to improve to 14-4 on the season! #WeTheNorth pic.twitter.com/7BKDyA9qlz — NBA (@NBA) November 21, 2018 Green caught Kyle Lowry's inbound pass with 2.3 seconds left, pulled up on the left side of the lane and hit a jumper with 0.5 seconds remaining. Orlando's Nikola Vucevic missed on a 67-foot heave as time expired. Kawhi Leonard led Toronto with 18 points, and Pascal Siakam had 15. Serge Ibaka added 14 points and nine rebounds, and Green finished with 13. Evan Fournier led the Magic with 27 points, 22 of them in the second half when he was about the only offense Orlando could generate. Aaron Gordon had 16 points, and Vucevic had 14 points and 18 rebounds for the Magic, who ended a three-game winning streak. Fournier drove past Green for a tying dunk with 2.3 seconds left. The Raptors took a full timeout, and Green scored on the ensuing inbound. Neither team had it going offensively for most of the game, especially in the fourth quarter. The Magic missed 11 straight field-goal attempts in a four-minute stretch early in the period. Their only points were two free throws from Jonathan Isaac, but the drought didn't cost them much. Toronto could only put together a three-pointer from Green and a layup by Jonas Valanciunas during that stretch to take an 80-77 lead. The teams traded baskets from there until Ibaka drilled a jumper from the top of the key to put Toronto in front 91-89. Toronto led by 18 during a first half when both teams struggled to find or maintain an offensive rhythm. The Raptors made enough shots to jump out to a 40-22 advantage in the middle of the second quarter, as Orlando labored under 30 percent shooting. The Magic finally got some rhythm and cut the deficit to 10 by halftime, then caught Toronto by the middle of the third. Fournier started the second half with a three-pointer, the first of six three's in the period for the Magic. Another triple from Fournier tied it at 59 with 5:05 left, and his free throw gave Orlando a 75-73 lead going into the fourth. Fournier had 14 points in the quarter. TIP-INS Raptors: Toronto didn't have a player reach double-figure scoring in the first half. ... Toronto got 17 second-chance points. Magic: Backup F Terrence Ross, the hottest shooter on the Magic over the last five games, was just 2-of-10 against his old team. ... The Magic shot only 41.5 percent for the game. UP NEXT Raptors: Finish a four-game road trip at Atlanta on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Magic: Start a six-game Western Conference swing in Denver on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time)......»»
