Charlotte heads into Minnesota Tuesday night, looking to put an end to their 2 game losing skid.
Meanwhile, the Timberwolves look to string together back to back wins and inch closer to the .500 mark.
The Hornets know this team will only succeed when Kemba Walker is at his best.
However, Walker does need to find a little help from the supporting cast. The Hornets have dropped back to back games to the Raptors and Cleveland by a combined 9 points, as Kemba Walker simply hasn’t gotten any help offensively.
The Hornets defense has also been a huge struggle. Charlotte allowed 113 to the Raptors and followed that up with another triple digit showing against Cleveland.
In four of their last nine games, the Hornets have conceded 100 points or more.
Meanwhile, Kemba Walker is just putting up ridiculous scoring lines.
Walker is averaging 25.3 points per game this season and has put up at least 21 points in 8 straight games.
Look for him to have to even more here, as the rest of the offense isn’t helping his cause, especially down the stretch of games.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are an extremely young team, but have the potential to be extremely exciting.
Minnesota will look to win back to back games for the first time this season as they have split the first 2 games of their 4 game homestand, with the most recent one being a win over the Lakers.
Andrew Wiggins continues to give this team a glimpse of the future and now present as he comes in off a performance that saw him go for a career high 47 points.
This Minnesota team has plenty of young talent, but getting them to mold and step up defensively is the next step in this process.
There has been plenty of shooting inconsistencies for the Timberwolves, along with some sketchy defensive stretches.
This season, Minnesota is allowing 105.1 points per game. They like to get out quick offensively, which is leading to some easy transition buckets for the opposing team.
