The Charlotte Hornets are coming of a lop-sided win over the Philadelphia 76ers, giving them a record of 3-1 in the early portions of the season.
While the Brooklyn Nets were also able to come away victors in a competitive game with the Detroit Pistons (final score 109-101.)
But now both teams hope to keep their streaks alive, making it two in a row with a win over their adversary in this next matchup.
The Charlotte Hornets are looking to keep the ball rolling and make it 4 wins on the season, with a victory over the Brooklyn Nets.
Their defense set the tone early in their last matchup, as they held Philadelphia to only 93 points in the game, while shooting 39.5% from the field.
That was a key contributor in getting them the win, because the team doesn’t have many offensive weapons. Besides Kemba Walker and Nicolas Batum, Charlotte doesn’t have any other scorers/playmakers on the roster.
With that, it forces them to hang their hat on the defensive end of the floor, in order to pull out wins over stronger offensive teams. An Brooklyn is just that. They have three very talented scorers in Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin and Bojan Bogdanovic that are going to be a load to stop. So Charlotte is going to have to find a way of containing them.
Kemba Walker and Nicolas Batum are going to continue keeping the offense afloat, but defense is what is going to allow the team to pull out the win.
Offensively they’ll be fine, as rookie Isaiah Whitehead is going to be forced into guarding Kemba Walker, so Walker has got to take advantage of that in this game.
The Brooklyn Nets are hoping to get their second win over a strong eastern conference challenger in the Charlotte Hornets. Last match they were able to pull out the win over a good Detroit Pistons squad that sits 7th in the eastern standings.
But now they face an even tougher task in going up against the Charlotte Hornets. They’ve got to contain Kemba and Batum in this game, if they’re planning on getting the win. Charlotte doesn’t have many options offensively, leaving Walker and Batum as the lone scorers on the roster.
Now because of that, Brooklyn has got to take advantage of their adversaries’ weakness. Charlotte is hoping to make this a low scoring game, using their stingy defensive to keep the Nets close.
But Brooklyn has got to use that to their advantage, as they have the better scoring options. Brook Lopez is going to be going up against Roy Hibbert, while Bojan Bogdanovic is going to have Nicolas Batum checking him.
And those two cannot stop Lopez and Bogdanovic, making them the best options to go to in this game. With the Hornets looking to grind out the win, the game is going to be close in the final minutes of play.
So with that, look for Brooklyn to use that against them as they keep the game tight, up until they start feeding it down low to Brook Lopez who will eventually put the team over the top
