Orlando Magic Follow Toronto into London

Payton Arrival

The Orlando Magic have touched down in London today (Tuesday), as they get ready to face the in-form Toronto Raptors at the O2 Arena later on this week.

Orlando played their last game on Saturday, coming out the wrong side of a 105-99 scoreline against the Washington Wizards, but now get to regroup ahead of the NBA London event.

However, going into their game against the Toronto Raptors, the Magic will look back at their previous game against the Canadian franchise, of which they won by five points – breaking the Raptors five game winning streak in the process.

One player who is looking forward to his first experience of the UK, and London in particular is Victor Oladipo – who’s having yet another strong season in the Magic pinstripes.

“London is an amazing city and we’re glad to be here. We have a busy schedule ahead of us but we’ve been looking forward to this trip. I can’t wait to see the NBA fans here in the UK and I’m sure the game at The O2 will be a very special experience for fans and players alike.”

Having averaged 13.1ppg, 4.8rpg and 3.9apg, Oladipo has been one of the main reasons why the Magic have performed so well in a greatly improved Eastern Conference.

In fact, he’s proving one of the main attractions for the game at the O2 Arena, with plenty of fans expected to come just to get a sight of him on-court, here’s to hoping he’ll be able to fit the bill for the Magic…

The Orlando Magic host the Toronto Raptors at The O2 in London on Jan. 14 as part of NBA Global Games London 2016. The game is live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Showcase or via NBA LEAGUE PASS (www.nba.tv) and will be screened live at 31 ODEON cinemas around the country.
