Orlando Magic guard Michael Carter-Williams really wanted the smoke with the referees in the fourth quarter of their series opener against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday.

The 6-foot-7 reserve was understandably upset about not getting a foul call after Kyle Lowry smacked him on the face during a drive to the basket.

Carter-Williams angrily charged towards the officials, complaining about the non-call. Fortunately, the coaching staff prevented him from getting any further sanctions for talking up to the referees.

MCW sustained a bloodied nose because of the hit. He went to the locker shortly after, but was able to return to the bench.

Bloody noses aside, Carter-Williams and the Magic had plenty to celebrate about last night. Orlando pulled off the stunner in the series opener, care of point guard D.J Augustin's game winning triple that broke the collective hearts of the Toronto fans.

Carter-Williams had a pretty solid outing for Orlando off the bench in the Game 1 victory over the Raptors. He finished with 10 points, five rebounds, and two assists in 18 minutes for the Magic. He also added a pair of triples and shot 4-of-8 from the field.

In a day full of Game 1 upsets, this Magic win has to be the most shocking one. Many expected Toronto to cruise past Orlando in round one. But Orlando brought the fight to the no. 2 seed team in the East, making big plays in the closing minutes of the game.

But none was bigger than Augustin's dagger three with 3.5 seconds remaining to close the deal for Orlando. Augustin led the way with 25 points, while six other Magic players, including Carter-Williams, scored in double figures.
