Both teams, however, have been solid bets of late, with Charlotte covering five straight and Atlanta covering three in a row.

What you need to know about the Hawks

Atlanta didn’t have too much trouble with the Boston Celtics at home on Wednesday as the Hawks won 110-99. Atlanta got its victory thanks in large part to several key players, and it was power forward John Collins out in front dropping a double-double on 20 points and 11 boards.

Trae Young also had a double-double with 18 points and 11 assists in the victory, but he struggled from the field, shooting just 4-for-12. Even with the poor shooting night, Young has averaged 28.4 points per game over his last seven games after a sluggish start to the season and is now averaging 25.1 points and 9.2 assists per game.

What you need to know about the Hornets

Meanwhile, things were close when Charlotte and the Indiana Pacers clashed on Friday, but Charlotte ultimately edged out the opposition 121-118. Point guard LaMelo Ball and small forward Gordon Hayward were among the main playmakers for the Hornets as Ball almost posted a triple-double on 32 points, 11 rebounds, and eight dimes and the Hayward chipped in 25 points.

With Ball initiating the offense and generally looking even more confident in his second season, the Hornets rank second in the NBA in points per game (112.8), third in pace (101.6) and 10th in offensive rating (109.6). The Hawks don’t play as fast as you might imagine (18th in pace) with Young running the point, so look for Charlotte to control the tempo to dictate the flow of the game.
