The Raptors’ Kyle Lowry, center, passes around the Magic’s Ersan Ilyasova, left, and Andrew Nicholson in a 105-100 win.

TORONTO — With just over three weeks left in the regular season, the Raptors are within a game of the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

DeMar DeRozan had 25 points and the Raptors beat the Magic 105-100 on Sunday to pull within a game of the Cavaliers for first.

"I really don't look at it like we're chasing Cleveland," DeRozan said. "At the end of the day, we're going to have homecourt advantage regardless. Our biggest focus is just getting everything we need to get together, especially defensive-wise as a team."

Victor Oladipo and Evan Fournier had 21 each for Orlando.

Around the league: Pelicans All-Star forward Anthony Davis will miss the rest of the season so he can have surgery to repair a recent knee injury and a lingering shoulder problem that has bothered him for much of the season. … Carmelo Anthony missed the Knicks' game against the Kings with a migraine.
