Can Charlotte Get Back On Track?
Charlotte has not been playing well as of late as they are 3-7 in their last 10 games. They’re coming off an impressive win against the Cleveland Cavaliers where Terry Rozier was able to lead the way with 29 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists. Charlotte was able to win that game, 119-98; They’re hoping that that is going to be the start of this team getting back on track.
Charlotte is one of the best offensive teams in the NBA as they currently have the 10th highest offensive rating in the league. Unfortunately, they have struggled mightily on the defensive side of the ball as they ranked 21st in defensive rating.
Lamelo Ball was almost a no factor for them in their last game against Cleveland as he only played eight minutes due to foul trouble and was only able to add two points.
Dejounte Murray Looking To Stay Hot
The San Antonio Spurs were unable to get the job done against the new-look Sacramento Kings on Thursday. San Antonio lost 115–112.
Young superstar Dejounte Murray was able to lead the way in this tough loss as he finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists. Murray continues to show why he is one of the best players in the NBA. On the season, he is averaging 20.3 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 9.3 assists per game.
The Spurs have been in the middle of the pack in terms of advanced stats this season. They have the 16th ranked net rating, the 13th ranked offense, and 19th ranked defense.

Free NBA Picks — Spurs vs Hornets
For this game, I’m going to go with the Charlotte Hornets to win outright and for Lamelo Ball to have 20 points and 2+ 3s. He was not able to play much in Charlotte’s last game due to foul trouble, so I expect him to come out in this one and be able to do what he usually does.
San Antonio doesn’t have a horrible defense by any means, but they certainly have not been expecting an above-average defensive team, so Lamelo Ball to do his usual thing and for Charlotte to get back on track.
