The Toronto Raptors (10-4) move to 6-0 at Scotiabank Arena with a win over the Orlando Magic (6-8) Wednesday night.
Fred VanVleet led the way for Toronto with a game-high 24 points while four other Raptors (Terence Davis II, Pascal Siakam, Norman Powell and Chris Boucher) each finished in double figures as well.
Toronto got it done on the defensive end, limiting Orlando to 38.9% shooting from the field.
Ankle injuries ended the nights of Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic in the first half and their absence was too much for the Magic to overcome, although Evan Fournier (21 points) and Jonathan Isaac (16 points, 13 rebounds) delivered solid performances.
