Streaking Raptors try to avoid letdown vs. Hornets

TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors will try to win their seventh game in a row Wednesday night when they play the Charlotte Hornets at Air Canada Centre.

Yet, Raptors coach Dwane Casey saw some warning signs in win No. 6, a 131-112 trouncing of the Orlando Magic on Monday.

"It was brother-in-law basketball," Casey said. "We'll take the win, but we can't be happy with our defensive performance, trading baskets like that. We have bigger goals in mind and, if we intend on achieving them, we have to have a better mindset than we had tonight defensively. We shot 59 percent from the field; offense is not the problem. It's the defensive side that we did not have a focus on."
