Charlotte missed out on Marc Gasol, who went to the Raptors at at the Trade Deadline instead. The Hornets didn’t do anything to upgrade their roster in attempt to make a playoff push in the Eastern Conference. They are leading the pitiful Southeast Division, despite being two games under .500.
Those two games have come in the last two, both losses. Charlotte lost a home game on a game-winner by the now former Clipper Tobias Harris; then it lost by six at Dallas before getting two days off.
Head Coach James Borrego is hoping those two days will be enough for Tony Parker’s back to feel better. Parker played sparingly in the loss to Los Angeles and then missed the Dallas game.
The 36-year-old backup point guard only plays about 18 minutes a game but he’s vital to Charlotte’s second unit and it shows in the win-loss results. The Hornets are 0–8 when Parker doesn’t play.
Atlanta is in last-place in the Southeast but actually only 7.5 games out, which, to put in perspective, is as far away as Charlotte, currently the 7-seed in the East, is from Philadelphia, the 5-seed.
The Hawks recently finished a seven-game road trip with consecutive wins and 4–3, overall. They did just lose their first game back in Atlanta to the Raptors, who were heavy favorites, but the Hawks won’t leave home before the All-Star Break; they’ll play four home games over six days.
The Hawks didn’t send away any of their veterans at the Trade Deadline, either. Perhaps the market wasn’t good, or the front office likes the direction the team is headed.
I’m on board with the latter. The Hawks are 12–13 over their last 25 games, which is about the pace the division-leading Hornets have been playing at all season. Trae Young looks great and will compete in the Skills Challenge, in Charlotte, over the All-Star Weekend.
