Repeatedly the Raptors have flirted with getting back to (and above) .500 while trying to catch the Hawks and Heat ahead of them but remained stuck in ninth.
Tuesday offers their best shot as the Bulls host Atlanta and if both Chicago and Toronto win the Raptors will move up to eighth.
Sunday, the Raptors easily dispensed of the G-League Hornets with Fred VanVleet posting a double-double of 20 points and 20 assists while OG Anunoby continued to shoot lights out and Pascal Siakam dropped 36 on his 29th birthday.

- Otto Porter Jr., SF (OUT for season, — foot)
- Gary Trent Jr. SG (questionable—back spasms)
- Will Barton, SG (probable —ankle)
With so many of the core players out injured Steve Clifford had to rely on end-of-bench younger guys who don’t typically get a ton of minutes let alone start.
Factor in the matchup versus Toronto isn’t ideal even with the Hornets A team although Clifford has to be specifically thrilled with Mark Williams, James Bouknight, and Kai Jones’ stepping up and producing.
Charlotte ranks 27th averaging 111.2 points per game while shooting 45.7% from the field and 33.1% from the perimeter ranking 28th and 29th respectively.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
Although no team can be overlooked and some Hornets could be upgraded to play the Raptors are laser-focused on getting this win especially with a baseball set versus the Celtics looming and a closing night match against the Bucks on tap.
Loyal followers know how averse I am to large spreads and since Toronto will be playing again on Wednesday in Boston my guess is they’ll try to get out to a quick lead so Nick Nurse can rest some of his core in the second half.
