Raptors aim to build on momentum in Game 3 vs. Magic

The Toronto Raptors hope to continue the dominance they showed in Game 2 when they visit the Orlando Magic for Game 3 of the first-round playoff series Friday night. The Magic hope they can find a way to get more production from center Nikola Vucevic, who has been stifled by Toronto's defense. Despite their 111-82 second-game dominance Tuesday and their ability to limit Vucevic, the best the Raptors could do in the first two games of the best-of-seven series is gain a split at home.

Disgruntled Anthony Davis scores just 3 points, rips team after game

Anthony Davis doesn't want to play for New Orleans anymore (he, through his agent, has requested a trade). Davis scored just three points on 1-of-9 shooting and was thoroughly outplayed by Orlando center Nikola Vucevic as the Magic beat the listless Pelicans 118-88. Davis played 24 minutes in his third game since his agent told New Orleans the six-time All-Star wanted to be traded to a championship-contending team and won't sign an extension with the Pelicans.
