Two teams playing in the back end of a back to back meet on Saturday night as the Charlotte Hornets and Atlanta Hawks get set for battle.
The Charlotte Hornets have been one of the more surprising teams to start the year.
They hold the pace atop the Southeast Division, a division that is going to completely wide open and there for the taking as just about every team is still right next to each other in the standings.
However, Charlotte limps into this weekend.
The Hornets have dropped 3 straight games and will encounter a tough Celtics team on Friday before heading into Atlanta on Saturday.
The Hornets have been one of those teams who are deep and have a lot of playmakers. While they’re paced by Kemba Walker and his 22.6 points per game, Nicolas Batum and Cody Zeller continue to be productive.
Batum leads the Hornets in rebounds at 7.6 and in assists at 5.5.
Zeller is shooting 61% from the floor and has become a real force on the defensive end. His ability to work the paint and control it on both ends really has added such a huge part to his game.
The Atlanta Hawks have been a struggle as of late.
Sitting right behind the Hornets in the division, they’ve dropped 8 of their last 10 and will head into Toronto before coming home for this one against Charlotte.
Inconsistencies on both ends of the floor have plagued them, but this team has too many weapons to be struggling offensively.
The Hawks rank 23rd in scoring in the NBA and are one of the worst when it comes to shooting the 3 ball.
While they did lose on of their best players in Al Horford this past offseason, they have been able to turn to Dwight Howard and see him as a valuable replacement.
Howard leads the team with 12.5 rebounds per game and is shooting the best on the team with at 62.3 percent.
Atlanta is just 7-5 SU at home and 6-6 ATS.
