The third quarter proved to be a challenging one for the Raptors. Defensive lapses allowed the Hornets to extend their lead to 15 points. Despite their efforts to mount a comeback, the Raptors struggled to consistently get stops on defense. The quarter ended with the Raptors trailing by 6.

As the final quarter began, the Hornets rested their key players, giving the Raptors an opportunity to capitalize.
