The Hornets look to continue their hot play when they head into Utah to take on the Jazz Wednesday night.
Charlotte has climbed back to within 1 game of .500 with 3 straight wins including a double overtime win last time out.
Utah had their game postponed on Saturday thanks to the weather and then came home and saw their comeback attempt fall just short to the Pistons on Monday.
The Hornets and Kemba Walked are playing at a very high level right now.
After trailing by 10 at half, the Horents went off from the field in the 3rd quarter against the Kings scoring 42 points. They eventually went on to grab a 1 point win in double overtime to end the Kings 5 game losing streak.
The Hornets had lost 9 of 10 heading into their last matchup with Utah earlier this month. Kemba Walker really seemed to turn a corner as he put in 52 points in a 124-119 double overtime win.
Since then, they’ve won 3 of 4 including overtime wins against Orlando and Sacramento along with a win over the Knicks.
Charlotte is now just 1.5 games behind the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Jazz have struggled overall, but with the way Charlotte has played in Utah, things bode well for them to right the ship.
Charlotte has dropped their last 8 in Utah and have averaged just 84.0 points on 40% shooting in those 8 meetings.
Overall, the Jazz have dropped 5 of 7 after their loss on Monday to Detroit.
Derrick Favors returned to the lineup and played 19 minutes as he produced 14 points. While it will take a few games to shake the rust off, the PF returned from missing 16 straight games and is such a major part of this Utah team.
Gordon Hayward will have to continue his stellar play until Favors gets back into the swing of things as the Jazz just aren’t producing enough offensively. Hayward has averaged 26.5 points per game over the last 4 games and did put in 36 points and 9 assists in that double overtime meeting with Charlotte.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Hornets are playing extremely well right now, but their struggles in Utah are a concern.
Favors still won’t be in form as it will still take time for him to get back into rhythm and that is a major advantage for Charlotte.
Look for Charlotte to get back to the .500 mark here with a solid performance from Kemba Walker and company.
