The Hornets cashed an easy one for us on Monday night, holding the Rockets to seven points in the fourth quarter to win by 25 as small home underdogs.
All seven of LaMelo Ball’s field goals came from beyond the three-point line and he finished with a game-high 24 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds for good measure.
Gordon Hayward had 19 points, as did Miles Bridges, who once again gave Charlotte great minutes off the bench with a double-double.
Bridges’ usage and totals are down from last season but he’s having a far better season. The former Michigan State Spartan is shooting a career-high .466, including .371 from three. He’s averaging two assists per game for the first time in his three-year NBA career.
But Ball continues to be the story. He has shown a supreme confidence shooting the three and while his success rate of .363 is neither great nor bad, his trigger has not slowed.
That bodes well for the future. He started his fifth game in a row on Monday and figures to make it six on Wednesday.
He figures to guard one of Memphis’ larger perimeter players and let Terry Rozier take Ja Morant. Then again, with Devonte’ Graham out, Ball may have to mark the Memphis star.
Memphis has had an unusual season to date. It started poorly with six losses in the first eight games. Then the Grizzlies won five in a row before having some games postponed due to the coronavirus.
They came back and smacked the Spurs around two games in a row to continue the winning streak but have not won since.
Memphis dropped its fourth in a row on Monday night, 128–113, to Toronto. Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet and Norman Powell combined to score 93 points for the Raptors and Memphis got outscored by 18 points in the fourth quarter.
Jonas Valanciunas was a man against his former team, going for 27 points and 20 rebounds (10 offensive, 10 defensive).
Dillon Brooks was over 20 too but Morant’s shooting slump continued — he finished just 5-for-17.
Desmond Bane, the rookie sensation out of TCU, got his first start of the season and knocked down three of his seven three-point tries to drop his season percentage to 48.1.
The Grizzlies have depth but they missed Brandon Clarke and De’Anthony Melton, both of whom are questionable for this game.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction: Memphis snaps the losing streak at home.
I like Memphis, uneven as it has been this season.
The Grizzlies are missing some players but they neither Clarke nor Melton have been ruled out for this game so either one could play.
Even if neither does, however, the Grizzlies have enough depth to win this game at home.
The spread is fair and therefore not attractive but I do lean Memphis and I would look to throw it in a teaser, play it on the moneyline or even, if I must, play it to cover.
