- Second half of the season starts.... now.
- Jerryd Bayless and Peja Stojakovic return, though Peja is expected to be unavailable. He's only played two games as a Raptor, both in November.
- Toronto ranks among the NBA's worst defensive teams. They're actually decent at forcing turnovers, but their inability to prevent opponents from shooting high percentages (especially from three) negates that and more.
- Go Hornets.
