Toronto had one of their most impressive shooting showings of the season in Tuesday's 132-120 victory against Charlotte, setting a season-high with 20 3-pointers made. The Raptors connected on 45.5% of their attempts from downtown and will look to finish with a three-game winning streak for the first time this year. Leading the way for Toronto was Pascal Siakam, who put up 28 points, and Gary Trent Jr., whose 24-point outing featured four 3-pointers.

The Raptors were bolstered by their reserves in the contest, with Precious Achiuwa registering 13 of the team's 40 points from the bench. In addition, Toronto had a commanding presence on the boards, out-rebounding the Hornets 49-34, including 18-6 in offensive boards. Charlotte hasn't had success against the spread in their last six games and have only earned two wins in the past seven meetings with Toronto. The Hornets will further be shorthanded as Kelly Oubre Jr. is out due to a hand injury while Gordon Hayward is doubtful with a hamstring issue.

Charlotte has had difficulty securing victories as of late, but most of their recent contests have been tight affairs. In their last four defeats, two were by only a margin of six points, and they also were triumphant in an impressive blowout victory against Milwaukee last Friday. Even in their most recent outing, despite being outmatched in virtually all facets of the game, they still fell short by only a ten-point margin. Thus, one can assume Thursday's matchup should be a much closer affair.

Terry Rozier notched an impressive 33 points when the Hornets took on the opponents, while LaMelo Ball put up 24 points and a personal season best of 14 assists. Charlotte shot a very impressive 54.7% from the floor, highlighted by a successful 15 out of 35 attempts from 3-point range. The Hornets have been successful in covering the spread in 8 out of their last 12 matches against the same opponents.

The model's simulations of Raptors vs. Hornets have concluded with the model leaning towards Under. Furthermore, SportsLine has an available point-spread pick that the model has generated that has been successful in 60% of simulations.
