The Brooklyn Nets are arguably the worst team in the NBA this season. The team is 25 games under .500 this year, and will not be participants in the playoffs this season. The Charlotte Hornets are on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoffs this season. Charlotte has lost four straight.
The last time the Nets and Hornets took the the court against each other was, February 22nd. The Hornets got the win, 111-96. Look for a similar outcome in this matchup.
The Brooklyn Nets are terrible again this season. The team has won just 20 games, and are 1-4 over their last five games. The Nets recently took a loss to the Warriors, 114-101. Brooklyn shot 42 percent from the floor and 26 percent from three in the loss. The Nets should give a solid effort in this one.
There are not many good things to say about Brooklyn, when the team has been so bad. The Nets are in full tank mode right now, and would not be surprising if they got a top three lottery pick. Brooklyn could use all the help they can get. Right now the teams leading scorer is D’Angelo Russell.
Russell is averaging 15.6 points per game this season. Russell’s ability to score and distribute the ball, is something the Nets could use right now. One of the other bright spots for the Nets has been the play of Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie is averaging 13.2 points and 6.9 rebounds per game this season.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Nets are allowing 110 points per game this year. Good enough to rank Brooklyn 28th in points allowed this year. If the Nets are going to have any success against the Hornets, they must limit Kemba Walker’s ability to penetrate and create easy scoring opportunities for others.
The Nets are 8-24 on the road this season. If Brooklyn is going to get it done in this matchup, they must defense better. Jarrett Allen has been a decent rim protector for the Nets this season.
The Charlotte Hornets are a team also struggling right now. Charlotte is 1-4 over their last five games. The teams most recent loss was at home against the Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers put up 128 points on the Hornets. Charlotte allowed Philadelphia to shoot 57.5 percent from the floor and 48.5 percent from three in the loss.
The Hornets are currently the 10th seed in the East right now, and sit six games back of 8th place Milwaukee for the final playoff spot. During the Hornets recent four game losing skid, the team has allowed 128 against Philadelphia and 134 against the Celtics. Not a good look for the Hornets.
Defensively, the Hornets are bad. The team is allowing 107 points per game this year. Ranking Charlotte 16th in the NBA in points allowed this year. Don’t expect the Hornets defense to improve. Charlotte is playing for a lottery pick right now. If the team can get their hands on a top draft pick, maybe they will be taken serious next year.
