After what seems like weeks of health and safety protocols being in place, the Raptors starting lineup is still sparse tonight versus the Charlotte Hornets. The Toronto Raptors put up a really admirable showing against the Hawks earlier this week on Thursday. But despite an almost historic 19-point comeback, the Raptors didn’t have the closers they needed when it mattered. Without Fred, OG, and Pascal again, the Raptors will have to dig deep to pull a victory away from one of the NBA’s most exciting teams.
Lamelo Ball, after starting the season shaky, has already emerged as a star in the NBA. Since becoming a starter 16 games ago, Ball has averaged 19.8 pts, 6.1 rbs, 6.8 ast, 1.8 stl on 45.6% shooting and 43.7% from deep. Catch the end to this 3 game season series tonight at 7PM EST on SN1. And for more NBA and Raptors News, follow us @snkrbox_inc on Twitter.
