The rise of second-year guard Devonte Graham plays a big role in why the Hornets are such a dangerous team even against elite opponents.

Players to Watch: Devonte’ Graham (18.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 7.1 APG), Terry Rozier (16.9 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 4.7 APG), P.J. Washington (13.1 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 1.5 APG)

Toronto Raptors Betting

The Toronto Raptors keep on exceeding expectations this season, thanks to the heads-up performances from Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet. With Serge Ibaka and Kyle Lowry nursing injuries, Toronto finished their five-game Western Conference road trip with a 3-2 record with massive wins against the Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers.

Players to Watch: Pascal Siakam (26.2 PPG, 8.7 RPG, 4.1 APG), Kyle Lowry (21.8 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 6.5 APG), Fred VanVleet (17.7 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 7.6 APG)
