The depleted San Antonio Spurs host rising Charlotte on the end of a back-to-back set which began vs. Golden State.
As of this writing, San Antonio has lost three-straight contests and encounters the forceful Warriors Thursday night. Further, all-purpose 2017 MVP-Finalist Kawhi Leonard remains sidelined indefinitely with a strained groin. While the Spurs began 4-0, their collective firepower is cooled.
Meanwhile, 2017 lottery denizen Charlotte is amid a strong run, highlighted by three-straight wins vs. quality opponents Orlando, Memphis, and Milwaukee.
Certainly, this contest favors the Hornets’ youth, momentum, and rest. However, even upon labored legs, it is hard to imagine San Antonio yielding either a fifth-straight setback or fourth loss in five games Friday night.
Rookie Malik Monk exploded during a seminal fourth-quarter Wednesday to secure Charlotte’s fourth win in five games. The recent lottery pick added 18 of his career-high 25 points in the final frame as Charlotte outpaced visiting Milwaukee 126-121.
Overall vs. a road-weary Bucks unit, seven Hornets netted double-figure scoring with All-Star Kemba Walker (26 points) and Dwight Howard (17 points, 11 rebounds) executing an effortless two-man game.
Even as Charlotte flourished offensively, shooting 53/56 percent from the field and deep and scouring Milwaukee’s bench 52-23 in scoring, the Hornets benefited most from Giannis Antetokounmpo’s early foul dilemma.
After acquiring three early infractions, the NBA’s leading scorer remained tentative as his team ebbed-and-flowed but ultimately crashed behind Khris Middleton’s specious 43-point showing.
Another quality win has Steve Clifford’s crew beaming with confidence as they begin a lengthy road trip at the AT&T Center.
San Antonio Spurs
Following an impassioned start which defied critics murmuring for the franchise’s long-rumored downfall, nonetheless, the past three games have presented hardship for Gregg Popovich’s injury-hit collective.
As demonstrated in linear fumblings vs. Orlando, Indiana, and Boston, adrenaline, and moxie can only carry even the most well-prepared, but undermanned outfit so far. Seven mixed contests have exhibited the value Kawhi Leonard brings to San Antonio.
If San Antonio is to re-surface in the win column, defense and overall efficiency must be prioritized. Further, LaMarcus Aldrige, Pau Gasol, Danny Green, and a gaggle of young Spurs will need to set traps for Kemba Walker and Dwight Howard early to coax the duo into foul trouble, thus pressuring a lightly-experienced Hornets bench.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
Currently, the Hornets and Spurs are teams headed in polar directions. That stated, San Antonio’s pedigree, and 4-0 start, cannot be ignored vs. an opponent which has made just three playoff appearances in its 14-year existence.
This contest will be hard-fought and full of alternating runs. However, San Antonio’s pride and experience will be enough to avoid a panic-inducing defeat.
