Matchup To Watch
Kemba Walker Vs Kyle Lowry: I can’t help myself from looking forward to this matchup between these two all-star caliber point guards. As you probably know, Kemba is coming off three consecutive thirty plus point efforts against Orlando, Boston, and and New Orleans in the past week. Meanwhile, Kyle Lowry has had himself quite a season, averaging nearly 21 a game while leading his team to a fantastic 24-10 start. With two of the game's best up incoming point guards squaring off tonight, this should be a fun battle to watch.
Despite Charlotte's three-game winning streak, Toronto is an excellent team that shouldn't lose at home to a Hornets club without Al Jefferson and Lance Stephenson. Hornets fall short 105-97.
