CHARLOTTE - Until just recently, the only NBA home Tyler Hansbrough had known was Indianapolis.

The Missouri native spent four seasons with the Indiana Pacers after being selected 13th overall in 2009 following a storied career with the North Carolina Tar Heels.

That doesn't mean the big man is about to get sentimental about his return with the Raptors on Friday - that's just not in his nature.

"No, it's not (going to be weird). It's just another game to me," Hansbrough said earlier this week when queried about whether he had any special feelings about the contest.

"I'm a Raptor now, so I'm trying to go in there and get a win like I would any other arena."
