The Charlotte Hornets look to hang on to their lead in the Southeast Division standings this Saturday as they welcome in the Golden State Warriors to the Spectrum Center for this marquee matchup.
Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors have been struggling on the interior with both Looney and James Wiseman both on the injury report and both will be out once again for this game with Charlotte. Whenever you talk about the Warriors you have to bring up Curry and that is especially true this year with Klay Thompson out for the season, as Curry has put the additional usage rate to good use averaging 30 points per game.
Andrew Wiggins and Kelly Oubre both did not look very good early on in their tenure with the Warriors, but have come on recently and are supporting Steph Curry and that is turning into results with this Warriors team making a mid-season charge.
It will be tough for the Warriors to be relevant come the postseason given all the injuries, but who knows how far they could go if the younger guys continue to perform and Steph continues on his borderline MVP pace.
The Hornets hold on to a precarious lead atop the Southeast division and given the other teams in the division this team deserves to be at the top, as they are playing the best basketball at the moment and it appears as though their team chemistry keeps getting better. Gordon Hayward raised eyebrows in the off-season with his big contract garnering widespread debate, but Hayward has been able to silence a lot of the critics, as he has found his form and is playing at an All-Star level.
Terry Rozier has also been a big part of the success in Charlotte averaging over 20 points per game in his breakout season and he will have a great matchup against this Warriors team who is not exactly renowned for their defending.
They will be looking for a bounceback here, though, as they fell to the Spurs in their last match where they turned over the ball far too much and were punished for their mistakes by a fundamentally sound Spurs team.
The biggest success for the Hornets this year will be the fact that they nailed their first round draft pick with Lamelo Ball looking to be a lock for the Rookie of the Year title and he gives casual basketball fans a reason to pay attention to a franchise that does not hit the headlines very often.
NBA Betting Trends:
Free Golden State Warriors vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
I think the Golden State Warriors will successfully rope the Charlotte Hornets into a bit of a shootout here and therefore think this one can go over the current total. Rozier and Hayward both have the ability to get hot and go shot for shot with Steph over a short sample size and so I can see this one get out of hand a bit in terms of the scoreboard.
