Continuing a run of games where eight of ten are away from the Air Canada Centre, the Raptors are in Charlotte tonight to take on the 6-1 Hornets.
That’s right, the Hornets are 6-1! While they will be without the services of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist tonight, they’re being led by 23.7 points per game by Kemba Walker. Much like one DeMar DeRozan, Walker has added to his game every year so far in his young career. Shooting 44% from three, it’ll again be an important game for Kyle Lowry and Cory Joseph on defense.
Helping the Raptors? A couple of returning faces.

After tonight, the Raps are on a quick plane back to play the Knicks in Toronto on Saturday. This would be a big one in preparation for a more tired night tomorrow.
