Through 3 Quarters
The Golden State Warriors are just one quarter away from delivering their fans the win they’ve been expecting. Either squad is in a position to win, but they lead against the Charlotte Hornets 88-87.
The Warriors have been relying on point guard Stephen Curry, who has 20 points and eight assists along with five rebounds, and small forward Andrew Wiggins, who has 26 points in addition to four boards. Power forward Miles Bridges (20 points) and point guard LaMelo Ball (19 points) have been the top scorers for Charlotte. LaMelo Ball does need to be careful, however, as he is in foul trouble with four. Miles Bridges has also picked up four fouls.
The Hornets haven’t lost 86% of the games in which they were down heading into the final period this year, so a victory here would be refreshing.

What to Know
The Charlotte Hornets need to shore up a defense that is allowing 116 points per matchup before their game Sunday. They will stay at home another game and welcome the Golden State Warriors at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 14 at Spectrum Center. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
The Hornets netted a 104-96 victory over the New York Knicks this past Friday. The win came about thanks to a strong surge after the first quarter to overcome a 34-18 deficit. Charlotte can attribute much of their success to small forward Gordon Hayward, who had 22 points and seven assists in addition to five rebounds, and power forward Miles Bridges, who had 24 points.
Meanwhile, the Dubs made easy work of the Chicago Bulls this past Friday and carried off a 119-93 win. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Golden State had established an 86-62 advantage. It was another big night for their point guard Stephen Curry, who shot 9-for-17 from downtown and finished with 40 points and five dimes.
Charlotte is expected to lose this next one by 5. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
The wins brought Charlotte up to 7-7 and Golden State to 11-1. The Hornets are 3-3 after wins this year, the Warriors 9-1.
