On Sunday February 11, the Toronto Raptors arrives at the Spectrum Center to face their host the Charlotte Hornets. Entering the game the Raptors are on a four game win streak and have won six of the past seven. Conversely the Hornets are on a three game losing streak.
Last season the teams split the season series, but the Raptors have won the first two games this season. The Hornets hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 42 of their 75 matches.
Immediately after the trade deadline passed the Boston Celtics lost and the Toronto Raptors moved into first place of the Eastern Conference. Toronto just finished their longest home stand for the season sweeping all four games.
Masai Ujiri made one small move at the deadline moving on from the experiment that was Bruno Caboclo sending him to the Kings for shooting guard Malachi Richardson. The move will help the Raptors remain under the luxury tax.
The Raptors bench has been on fire lately scoring 53, 52, 59 and 61 points during the home stand. The backcourt duo of Delon Wright and Fred VanVleet is playing exceptional ball.
Yet, the frontcourt pairing of best friends Jakob Poeltl and Pascal Siakam are surprising teams with their athleticism and defense. Siakam dished a career high six assists vs. New York.
The Hornets have been on a road heavy schedule having just returned from a four game trip and seven of their past eight. The first game back from road trips can often find squads feeling fatigued and therefore it can be considered a trap game.
Factor in this trip was on the opposite coast and it adds more fuel to Steve Clifford needing to pump up his squad.
In their last outing five players scored in double digits with Kemba Walker leading the way.
Despite rumors Walker was up for trade consideration he remains with the squad and Michael Jordan said the point guard is definitely part of their core. Walker will replace the injured Kristaps Porzingis at the All-Star Game next week.

The Charlotte Hornets always play the Raptors tough as does Dwight Howard and Kemba Walker. But, the fact Toronto are sitting atop the East and the Hornets are playing their first game back from an opposite coast trip makes this an easy choice.

Jonas Valanciunas has been playing his best ball, so he’d like nothing better than to get the best of Howard.
