On Tuesday March 13 the Charlotte Hornets arrive at the Smoothie King Center to face their host the New Orleans Pelicans. After a streak of five loses the Hornets got back in the win column with a victory over the Suns.
Entering the weekend the Pelicans were on a 10 game win streak which the Wizards halted. Utah added another loss on Sunday.
Last season the Pelicans swept the season series and also hold the 1-0 edge this season.
The Pelicans hold the all-time record having bested the Hornets in 19 of their 27 matches.
Preseason expectations for the Hornets were for the squad to return to the postseason possibly even as a homecourt seed. Despite Kemba Walker’s continued growth, Nicolas Batum returning healthy and the addition of Dwight Howard the Hornets have struggled.
On the season Charlotte ranks 14th offensively and 18th defensively. Post All-Star break the team has witnessed improvements offensively (9th), but spiraled defensively (28th).
Cody Zeller (knee) missed the last game and is likely out again. Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder) will miss the rest of the season.
New Orleans Pelicans
With the loss of DeMarcus Cousins many assumed the Pelicans would take a dive into lottery territory. But, Anthony Davis refused to forfeit the Pelicans postseason opportunity and went on an MVP type roll.
His production spearheaded the 10 game win streak although he’s gone through some bumps and bruises along the way. After sitting vs. the Wizards due to a tweaked ankle he returned Sunday to face the Jazz. Anthony posted 25 points, 3 assists and 11 rebounds although the Pelicans lost the game.
Alexis Ajinca (patellar tendon) is lost for the season. Frank Jackson (foot) remains out until the end of the month. Solomon Hill (hamstring) is recovering and may return possibly at the end of the month.
