The Man of the Hour, Scottie Barnes, will look to add to his momentum coming off a career high 27 points tonight at home in Toronto facing off against a porous and depleted Trailblazers squad. Barnes leads all rookies in games with at least 20 points and 5 rebounds, ranks second in rebounding average, and fourth in scoring and assists with his current stat-line of 14.8 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.4 dimes.
The Raptors survived their five game road trip with a respectable 2-3 record considering their opponents and their own depleted rotation. Now, with players returning to the lineup, the Raps chemistry looks to return back to its pre-road trip win streak level.
