Mainstream sports have not given the proper credit to the Toronto Raptors or the Charlotte Hornets. Both teams are often underestimated and accused of not having a superstar. But, DeMar DeRozan led the Toronto Raptors to 56 wins and a trip to the Conference Finals, in 2016.
While heavily doubted against the Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron’s team only won 57 games. When they faced off, the Raptors even came close to forcing a game seven. The Hornets also have Kemba Walker, who made his national presence by putting Dwyane Wade on the ropes.
Tonight, DeMar DeRozan and Kemba Walker had a battle that is built for stars. The epic battle was won by Kemba Walker and his 40 points.
