David West made his presence known at the Air Canada Centre tonight as his Hornets topped the Raptors 118-111. Peja Stojakovic added 25 points for New Orleans. It was a nice welcome back for former Raptor Morris Peterson, who made his first appearance in Toronto since leaving the team last summer. The sellout crowd rose to their feet as MoPete hit the floor.
"It's nice to see some familiar faces, on the court that I started my career with so it should be fun," Peterson said prior to the game. Peterson spent seven seasons with the Raptors before signing with the Hornets as a free agent. He contributed eight points in the win for the Western Conference leaders, reports the Associated Press.
