TORONTO, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Amir Johnson's two free throws with 43 seconds gave Toronto a three-point lead Friday and the Raptors held on to defeat Orlando 93-90.
Toronto has won five games in a row after recording just four victories in its first 23 games.
The Raptors led by 11 with less than 6 minutes to play, but Orlando rallied to within one when Jameer Nelson made a 3-pointer with 57 seconds left.
Johnson's foul shots accounted for the final score and the Magic's J.J. Redick missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it with 10 seconds to play. Orlando had a four-game winning streak snapped.
DeMar DeRozan paced Toronto with 17 points and eight rebounds. Jose Calderon contributed 13 points and nine assists.
