4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Charlotte Hornets -3
In terms of pace, both the Timberwolves and Hornets are among the fastest-paced teams in the league.
With their increased possessions, Minnesota is a more reliant team on the three-point shot, whereas the Hornets opt to work the ball inside, even though they are the more efficient three-point shooting team.
So far, the Timberwolves have yet to hit their three-point shots consistently, ranking 20th in the league at 34%. In their win streak, they have been able to improve upon this mark, but I expect them to start to come back towards their season average.
The biggest reason I see Charlotte pulling out this win is their ability to generate a lot of possessions and score at an efficient rate. So far, they are the 5th best three-point shooting team.
