Magic Clobbered by Raptors 97-121

From Sportsline.com:

The Orlando Magic grabbed the fewest rebounds in their history and allowed one of the NBA's worst teams to have a record night.

Rookie Charlie Villanueva scored 24 points and the Toronto Raptors shot a franchise record 63 percent from the field in a 121-97 rout of Orlando on Wednesday night.

The Raptors (10-22) own the third-worst record in the NBA, but tied a season-high in points and outrebounded the Magic 34-21.

The 21 rebounds are a franchise-low for Orlando, which lost in Detroit on Tuesday.

"It was a lack of effort on our part," Magic guard Jameer Nelson said.

Mike James added 17 points and seven assists for the Raptors, who have won four in a row for the first time since winning five straight in December 2003.

All 12 players on Toronto's roster scored and seven reached double figures. The Raptors' previous best shooting percentage was 61.9 percent on March 3, 1998 at Cleveland.
