The Charlotte Hornets seem to be sellers at the trade deadline. The team is seven games under .500 this season, and struggling to find a way in the weak Eastern Conference. The Phoenix Suns are also one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Suns are 17 games under .500, and seem to be in full rebuild mode. Phoenix could be the worst team in the league this year.
The last time the Hornets and Suns took the court against each other, was last season. The Charlotte and Phoenix faced each other twice, with the Suns and Hornets splitting the season series, 1-1.
The Charlotte Hornets are a team that has no identity this year. Kemba Walker is the teams leader, but the roster surrounding him, lacks the talent to make them a playoff team in the Eastern Conference. Walker is averaging 22.8 points per game this year.
The Hornets have won two in a row, and most recently beat the Indiana Pacers, 133-126. The Hornets played no defense in their last win, allowing 126 points. Charlotte shot 53 percent from the floor and 45.5 percent from three in the home win.
Kemba Walker stole the show with 41 points against the Pacers. Walker was 11 of 22 from the floor and grabbed nine rebounds. Aside from his play last night, Walker has been in the middle of trade takes. If the Hornets are tanking, look for Jordan to do Kemba a favor and send him to a playoff team.
On the defensive side of the court for Charlotte, the Hornets are allowing 106.8 points per game this season. Good enough to rank Charlotte 18th in scoring this season. Look for the Hornets to play well defensively against the Suns.
Charlotte is going to need another big game from Walker if they are going to get the win. Look for Kemba to drop 30 or more in this game.
The Phoenix Suns are arguably the worst team in the NBA this year. The only bright spot for Phoenix, is Devin Booker. Booker is averaging 24.3 points per game this year, but can’t seem to figure out how to make the Suns competitive. TJ Warren has also shown glimpses. He is averaging 19.5 points per game this year.
The Suns have dropped six of their last seven. The team seems to not care about the tanking part of the process. As long as Devin Booker and TJ Warren are shooting the ball, that’s really all that matters in Phoenix. Coming into the year, the team had high expectations, but things fell apart quickly after the release of Eric Bledsoe.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Suns are one of the worst in the NBA. The team is allowing 112.1 points per game this year. Good enough to rank the Suns 30th in the NBA in points allowed this season. Expect the Suns to give up 115 points or more in this one.
