Official Site of the Magic: Magic Not Going to Back Down Despite 3-1 Series Deficit
TORONTO - Determined to not lose hope in a series where he has quietly shined despite often being on the receiving end of Kawhi Leonard's brilliance, forward Aaron Gordon meticulously crafted a scenario that just might breathe some life into his wheezing Orlando Magic.
``We're going to go to Toronto and, obviously, look for a win,'' Gordon said following the Magic's 107-85 loss in Sunday night's Game 4 that dropped them into a daunting 3-1 hole.
``We've shown that we can win there (in Toronto) before and, that's what we're going to do,'' Gordon continued.

Fansided: Orlando Magic fans made an unforgettable atmosphere, failing to win is team's biggest regret
The Orlando Magic had their breathing room at last.
They forced a turnover on the first possession, then a Nikola Vucevic pop for a basket. It was the cleanest look Nikola Vucevic has gotten this entire series it seems. Then Aaron Gordon got down and dirty and forced Kawhi Leonard into a traveling violation.
He hit a 3-pointer on the next possession and the Amway Center became uncorked. It was as loud as it has ever been. Longtime Magic fans commenting on social media were left in wonder at how loud this building had become.

Fansided: The Orlando Magic get to see the full value of the Terrence Ross-Serge Ibaka trade
The move was highly questionable.
Not the fact the Orlando Magic had to trade Serge Ibaka, but just who they traded him for.
At the time, Terrence Ross was a bench player for a Toronto Raptors team that featured DeMar DeRozan at the starting shooting guard position. Although Terrence Ross would never get starting minutes, he still would shine at times. He just was not as talented as DeRozan or able to chase down that 50-point game he had earlier in his career.
On the flip side, Serge Ibaka was forced into a mish-mashed starting lineup after an offseason trade that sent Victor Oladipo out of Orlando.

Orlando Pinstriped Post: Kawhi Leonard dominates Magic, pushes their season to the brink
Sometimes one guy can almost single handedly break a team.
The Orlando Magic found that out the hard way on Sunday night when Kawhi Leonard terrorized them on both sides of the ball, almost single handedly leading the Toronto Raptors to a convincing win in game four, and giving them a strangle hold on their first round series.
After getting off to their best start since game one, Leonard quickly squashed any dreams the Magic had of making a real push to knock off the heavily favored Raptors on their home court.
Official Site of the Magic: Fournier Remains Confident Heading Into Critical Game 4
ORLANDO - No Orlando Magic player was more outwardly excited about the prospect of playing before a raucous, sellout crowd at the Amway Center on Friday night than guard Evan Fournier, a veteran of four painful rebuilding seasons and someone eager to bring NBA excitement back to Central Florida.
So, when Fournier didn't play well on Friday and looked on almost helplessly as the Magic fell 98-93 to the Toronto Raptors in Game 3, no one felt worse that the fiery French guard who plays the game with great passion. In his hours of reflection, Fournier even wonders if his wanting to win so badly adversely affected his performance 48 hours ago.
