Who’s Playing

Charlotte @ Atlanta

Current Records: Charlotte 10-7; Atlanta 7-9

What to Know

The Charlotte Hornets have enjoyed the comforts of home their last four games, but now they must head out on the road. Charlotte and the Atlanta Hawks will face off in a Southeast Division battle at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at State Farm Arena. Both teams come into the game bolstered by wins in their previous games.

The Hornets came out on top in a nail-biter against the Indiana Pacers on Friday, sneaking past 121-118. Point guard LaMelo Ball and small forward Gordon Hayward were among the main playmakers for Charlotte as the former almost posted a triple-double on 32 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists and the latter had 25 points. Hayward had some trouble finding his footing against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, so this was a step in the right direction.

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

Charlotte is expected to lose this next one by 6. They are currently five-for-five against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

It was close but no cigar for the Hornets as they fell 105-101 to the Hawks when the two teams previously met in April. Can Charlotte avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
