The fans at Spectrum Center will be treated to a game between the Toronto Raptors and the Charlotte Hornets when they take their seats on Friday.

ABOUT THE RAPTORS (28-14): Toronto was without backup center Lucas Nogueira (concussion) and power forward Patrick Patterson (knee), and lost small forward DeMarre Carroll to a head injury during Wednesday’s setback. The Raptors did get one piece of good news in the frontcourt when Jared Sullinger (foot) made his season debut and logged 14 minutes off the bench while contributing eight points and three rebounds. “I was able to keep up with the game,” Sullinger told reporters. “I didn’t think I was going to be able to keep up, especially how hard and how fast the Sixers play, but I was able to keep up with the game and just picking my spots.”

ABOUT THE HORNETS (21-21): Charlotte got its own pleasant surprise in the frontcourt on Wednesday from veteran center Roy Hibbert, who has been mostly ineffective since suffering a knee injury in October. Hibbert averaged 16 minutes and 5.2 points off the bench before going 7-of-8 from the floor en route to a season-high 16 points in 22 minutes on Wednesday. “I continue to trend in the right direction,” Hibbert told the Charlotte Observer. “”My legs are feeling good. The training staff and the strength coaches are working hard. When you have an injury like mine, with the knee, the quad atrophies.”

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Hornets listed as 1½-point favorites versus the Raptors, while the game’s total is sitting at 215 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Charlotte won its last outing, a 107-85 result against the Trail Blazers on January 18. The Hornets covered in that game as a -5-point favorite, while the 192 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Toronto lost its last outing, a 94-89 result against the 76ers on January 18. The Raptors failed to cover in that game as a -5.5-point favorite, while the 183 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

The Toronto Raptors scored at least 114 points in six consecutive games before running into the upstart Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday and failing to reach 90. The Raptors will try to find their offensive spark and earn a fifth win in six games when they visit the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.

Toronto averaged 120.2 points in six games – the last four wins – before going 6-of-24 from 3-point range and shooting 39.5 percent from the field in a 94-89 setback at Philadelphia. “We missed a lot of wide open shots,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey told reporters after the loss. “They didn’t do anything, necessarily. They’re a good team, they’ve been playing well. No disrespect to them but we missed a lot of wide open shots.” The Hornets returned from a five-game road trip and snapped a five-game slide with a 107-85 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, which brought the team back to .500. Charlotte held the Portland backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum to a combined 39 points on 14-of-36 shooting and will try to bring a similar effort against Toronto’s set of All-Star guards, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.
