The Orlando Magic didn’t have enough at the end to upset the Toronto Raptors Sunday afternoon.

The Magic scored only 18 in the fourth period, and free throws by the Raptors made the difference in a 105-100 loss by Orlando. Orlando lost a six-point lead in the final minutes as it hit only three of 13 shots down the stretch.

Orlando led by one point after three periods, but could not hang on despite 21 points by Victor Oladipo and 21 more by Evan Fournier. For Toronto, DeMar DeRozan had 25 and Luis Scola had 20.

“They’re good at drawing fouls,” Magic coach Scott Skiles said. “If a team earns 45 free throws, you’ve got play almost perfectly. We don’t have a big margin for error.”

It was the fourth straight loss by Orlando.

Toronto attempted 45 free throws in its victory.

The Magic play at the Boston Celtics tonight.
