Matchup to Watch
DeMar DeRozan vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: DeRozan is the fifth-highest scorer in the NBA, and he does it more with mid-range jump shots than 3-point shooting.
▪ This is the first of seven consecutive road games, broken up by the All-Star break.
▪ The Raptors were in the process of making a significant trade Tuesday, acquiring power forward Serge Ibaka from the Orlando Magic.
▪ The Hornets will be without centers Cody Zeller (quad soreness) and Miles Plumlee (calf strain). That means another start for Frank Kaminsky and maybe minutes for Mike Tobey.
▪ Hornets point guard Kemba Walker broke out of a recent slump with 29 points on 10-of-18 shooting Monday.
