The Charlotte Hornets came away on the losing end of a 119-114 point loss to the San Antonio Spurs in their last game, while the New York Knicks came away victors in their last outing, after beating the Portland Trail Blazers 107-103.
The Charlotte Hornets have now lost three of their last 4 games, after being handed their third loss in a row by the San Antonio Spurs.
Charlotte has hung their hat on the defensive end of the floor, but over the last three games they haven’t lived up to their own expectations. They have given up 121 points to New Orleans Pelicans, 105 points to the Memphis Grizzlies, and 119 points to the Spurs.
That’s not going to get Charlotte many wins, because the team just doesn’t have a good enough offensive unit to just rely on outscoring opponents every game. So if Charlotte’s to come out on top in their next outing they’ve got to play defense.
New York has a load of talent offensively, so the Hornets have got to shut down their offensive weapons early. They can’t let Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis get going, because both of them carry the Knicks offense nightly.
So if Charlotte can contain them right from the opening tip, it should help make the game easier in order for them to pull out the win.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks have now won four of their last five games. The teams really starting to mesh together, as they’ve slowly grown accustomed to playing with one another.
Before the Knicks seemed to lack cohesiveness as a unit. But now the teams started to put the pieces together in order to get this ship headed in the right direction.
However, next game they might be facing their toughest test yet, in the Charlotte Hornets. Charlotte is a great defensive team that will force New York into taking tough contested jump shots.
That means New York has got to keep the ball moving in order to get off good looks at the basket, because Charlotte isn’t going to allow them easy looks.
The Knicks have also got to contain star point guard Kemba Walker. He’s been the Hornets top offensive star, so if New York can shut him down, they’ll shut the Charlotte Hornets offense down.
