The last time Charlotte was above .500 on the season was at 6-5 on Jan. 11 following a win over the Knicks at home to cap a four-game win streak. Since that night, the Hornets have gotten close to .500 multiple times but never reached the mark until Thursday’s win over Detroit.

Advice and prediction
Charlotte did not play well for three quarters of Thursday’s game against Detroit but started and finished the game well enough to earn a win that moves it to .500. With the rust shaken off, the Hornets now get a decimated Raptors side.
The Raptors and Hornets had two hard-fought, close games in Tampa earlier this season with Charlotte down Gordon Hayward. Now at full strength against a Toronto side battling a COVID-19 outbreak, Charlotte should be the favorites here. Take Hornets minus-2.5 on Saturday.
Prediction: Charlotte 118, Toronto 110.
