Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
The Hornets came in as the NBA’s second-worst shooting team. So, naturally, they’ve hit 10 of their first 11 shots and have 25 points in 6 minutes. Yikes, Raptors defence. – 7:52 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Defensive stopper Christian Koloko being called in with the score 25-24 through 6 minutes. – 7:52 PM

Raps have held the Hornets to 7-of-8 shooting so far. Toronto is 6-of-10. Combined the two worst three-point shooting teams in the NBA are connecting on 7-of-9 threes. Game is tied 17-17 after 4:32 of 1Q. – 7:49 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
I’m thinking the Hornets making seven of the first eight shots would cause some Raptors consternation
But Toronto’s knocking down 3s like the Pretend Raptors and it’s 17-17 at first timeout – 7:48 PM

dunk, layup, dunk for charlotte’s opening three buckets – 7:43 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Fred Van Vleet and OG Anunoby totally blow a switch, then there’s no help at the rim as LaMelo Ball rolls in for a dunk. Those are 2 veteran guys who have played together for 6 years. Raps have way too many breakdowns like that this year. – 7:43 PM
Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42
PJ Washington has met the 41-game starter criteria.
His Qualifying Offer in the offseason is now locked in at $8,486,620.
The Charlotte forward is the first player of the 2019 Draft class (first-round picks who did not sign an extension) to reach the criteria. – 7:42 PM

RJ Barrett has been upgraded to questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Pacers. Knicks need to get better at MSG. They’re one of only six NBA teams with a losing record at home, joining bottom dwellers Houston, San Antonio, Detroit, Charlotte and Orlando. – 4:31 PM

A quick one on the end of Otto Porter Jr.’s season that barely ever began: theathletic.com/4078147/2023/0…3:52 PM
Eric Smith @Eric__Smith
Tough news for Porter (and the Raptors)…
If healthy…I truly believe Otto would’ve been a key piece for Toronto this season — a veteran 3pt shooter, who can defend…fresh off a championship with Golden State pic.twitter.com/sOeGjOvDki3:44 PM

Toronto has until January 15 to apply for a Disabled Player Exception for Otto Porter Jr.
The exception would be worth $3M (50% of his current salary).
The approval process will focus on if the season ending left foot surgery would sideline Porter Jr. until mid-June. – 3:22 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
As you’ve seen, Otto Porter Jr. is done after season-ending surgery on his foot. – 3:05 PM

Hornets coach Steve Clifford before last game “For me, this is the best I’ve seen (Myles) Turner play…”
… then Turner was strong at both ends.
The difference in the game: Pacers winning final minute.
