It’s a cross conference showdown on Saturday night in Sacramento.
The Charlotte Hornets try to get on the right track when they travel to take on the Sacramento Kings.
This is the second match up of the year between the two teams. The Kings won the first match up 109-106.
The Charlotte Hornets remain one of the most surprising teams in all of the NBA, and that is not in a good way at all.
The Hornets started the season 8-3 and Kemba Walker was playing locked in. People were questioning if this was a team that could contend with the Cavaliers.
Since that point however the Hornets have really struggled. They come into this game having lost 12 of their last 12 games. The only win in that time was against the worst team in the NBA, the Brooklyn Nets, and they even had problems with that game.
The problems the Hornets are going through are on the defensive side of the floor. They have given up over 105 points in 14 of the last 15 games. Now the Hornets are a good team on the offensive side of the ball, but it’s hard to win games when you constantly give up that many points.
For the Hornets to win they need to play better defense. They need to keep the Kings under that 105 point total if they want to come out of Sacramento with a win.
The Hornets have struggled on the road this season, registering a record of 8-20.
The Kings were in the middle of a big deal near the trade deadline. They sent DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans for Buddy Hield and a first round draft pick.
IN their first game back since the trade the Kings played really well. Willy Cauley-Stein led the Kings with 29 points and if he can continue to play that well, the Kings might do okay without Cousins. T
he Kings beat the Nuggets 116-110. It will be interesting to see if that is a one time fluke game or if the Kings will continue to play well without their All Star center.
For the Kings to win they need to keep meshing together the old and new, and continue to figure out how they are going to move on from life without Cousins. They also need to put up a lot of points. The Hornets struggle on defense and they need to attack that weakness.
At home this season the Kings are 13-15

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
It’s hard to know if that Kings team played a fluke game against the Nuggets, or if they will continue that. I feel like they can continue it. Now they might not play as well as last game but as long as they play close to that level they can win this game. I expect the two teams to play a high scoring game that the Kings will pull out in the end.
