Best Pick: The Toronto Raptors are our favorite to win tonight’s game. The team has been doing perfectly at home posting a 4-0 mark and won’t be looking to jeopardise that, despite Ibaka and Lowry’s absence. The Hornets were pretty lucky in their last two games but they only hit three-pointers in the final three seconds in both games. Something that won’t happen on a regular basis.
