What to Know

The Toronto Raptors and the Charlotte Hornets will face off at 7:00 p.m. ET on February 7th at Spectrum Center without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Both teams have had a bumpy ride up to this point with three consecutive losses for the Raptors and eight for the Hornets.

The oddsmakers predicted a rough game for the Raptors and boy were they right. They were dealt a punishing 138-100 defeat at the hands of New Orleans on Monday. The Raptors were down 105-71 at the end of the third quarter, and things only got worse from there.

Meanwhile, the Hornets traveled a rocky road last season, and unfortunately for them the road hasn’t gotten any smoother. They took a 124-118 hit to the loss column at the hands of Los Angeles. The Hornets have struggled against the Lakers recently, as their contest on Monday was their third consecutive lost matchup.

The Hornets’ defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of Miles Bridges, who scored 41 points, and Brandon Miller who scored 33 points along with four steals. As a matter of fact, that’s the most points Bridges has scored all season.

The Hornets struggled to get the ball back on offense and finished the game with only five offensive rebounds. They are 1-6 when they can’t control their own glass like that.

Toronto has traveled a rocky road recently having lost eight of their last nine matches, which put a noticeable dent in their 17-33 record this season. As for Charlotte, their loss was their seventh straight at home, which dropped their record down to 10-39.

Wednesday’s matchup is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Raptors haven’t given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 12.9 turnovers per game. However, it’s not like the Hornets struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging only 12.9 turnovers per game. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

Looking ahead, the Raptors are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by seven points. This contest will be their sixth straight on the road (so far over this stretch they are 3-2 against the spread).
