Two teams fighting for playoff spots and positioning in the Eastern Conference go at it as the Charlotte Hornets and Atlanta Hawks get set for battle.
Currently, it’s the Hawks who sit ahead in the 5th spot, just 1.0 game clear of 7th seeded Charlotte. Both teams are in the middle of a cluster of teams, with only a couple games separating everyone.
The Hornets have used solid play after the All Star break to propel themselves into a playoff position. Now, its not only about holding onto that spot, but also improving.
The Hornets know the importance of beating teams they’re fighting against, as they routed the Hawks the last time these two teams met. Charlotte grabbed a 107-84 victory as they shot 44% from the field and out-rebounded the Hawks by 17.
Charlotte has used a solid month of February as they’ve dropped just 2 games and has added a 7 game winning streak.
They come in off a solid win in Indiana, another team they’re chasing in the playoff race. Kemba Walker put in 22 points and added the game winning shot with just 2.4 seconds left as the Hornets played one of their best defensive games of the season.
The Hawks have been very spread out this month in terms of wins and losses, but they did manage to put an end to their current 3 game losing streak last time out.
Atlanta knocked off Chicago, a team in the East playoff race, 103-88 as they outscored the Bulls in every quarter. Chicago opened up a 7 point half time lead and never gave in as they continued to add to the lead in the 2nd half.
The Hawks saw 4 starters score in double figures as Jeff Teague led the way with 19 points and 9 assists. Al Horford, Kent Bazemore, and Paul Millsap all added 12 or more points as they helped dominate the glass well. Millsap was the leader in that category with 13 rebounds.
Atlanta has posted an 18-12 record at home this season.
