Orlando coach Steve Clifford had three points of emphasis pregame: + The Magic need to limit turnovers. + The Magic need to protect the glass, something they did well this season. + The Magic need to make better decisions when the Raptors send help. So far, the Magic have racked up seven turnovers, and the Raptors have collected a very high percentage of their misses (36.4 percent). On decision-making in traffic, Orlando has been ok, though most of the offensive improvement is the result of some tough shot-making.

A sharp-shooting offensive start in Orlando, where the Raptors lead the Magic 28-26 after one quarter. Toronto is finding its way to the rim, and went 11-for-19 in the period. The Magic put together a decent offensive quarter, as well, with Nikola Vucevic scoring eight points on 4-for-5 shooting from the field.

Joel Embiid's flagrant foul level one from Game 4 will stand as called, sources told ESPN. Embiid remains with two flagrant foul points for the postseason. Once a player gets to four flagrant points, they earn an automatic one-game suspension.

Boston completes a sweep of the Pacers, winning 110-106 in Game 4 here in Indianapolis. The Celtics move on to face the Milwaukee Bucks (barring an all-time collapse in their series, which they lead 3-0) next weekend.
