Matchup to Watch
DeMar DeRozan vs. Gerald Henderson: DeRozan is a borderline All-Star shooting guard who can match Henderson in terms of physicality.
▪ The Hornets’ Jan. 8 victory at Toronto was as impressive as any this season. Henderson had 31 points in that game.
▪ The Hornets are on a three-game winning streak. This is their third game in four nights.
▪ The Raptors have been resting point guard Kyle Lowry of late as he tries to overcome a nagging hand injury.
▪ Hornets coach Steve Clifford said his rotation policy the rest of the season is “sub-to-win,” as in it will shift from game to game and situation to situation.
