Five thoughts on Game 29: Raptors 129, Hornets 111

Toronto Raptors at Charlotte Hornets, December 20

The Toronto Raptors went into Charlotte last night and beat the Hornets rather easily, it seems. I missed the game as I was attending a Christmas party (it is that time of year!) but I’ve got a few quick thoughts on the result anyway!
