The Hornets continue their surge in the East while the Pelicans have faded back in the West as the two teams meet on Wednesday night.
Charlotte has used Kemba Walker to really find their place within the East cluster as they have a leg up sitting in the 6th spot.
The Pelicans have simply faded and opened up a giant gap between them and the 8th seed that likely won’t be made up.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans have just haven’t had it this season.
The injuries throughout the season, especially to Anthony Davis, haven’t helped out any causes whatsoever. Still, the gap now sits at 7.5 between them and the 8th seed and it looks as if it might be too large to overcome.
Still, there is time left and with players like Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson, this team could have a run in them.
The last time these two teams met, it was Anderson and Davis who carried the load for the Pelicans. Anderson hit six 3-pointers as he finished with 32 overall. Davis put in 22 as well. The duo will likely need similar or even better performances in this one to compete on the road.
New Orleans is just 7-23 SU on the road this season.
The Hornets have rattled off 4 straight wins and they continue surge up the Eastern Conference.
The Hornets sit in the 6th spot now in the East, just a 0.5 game behind the 5th seeded Hawks. However, the Calvary is behind them as they are just 1.0 game up on 7th and 2.0 on the 8th spot. A lot can either go right or wrong depending on how they handle the pressure this month.
Charlotte has been a different team lately thanks to Kemba Walker. The star G has averaged 32.3 points over the past 3 games and is shooting nearly 50% from the field over the last 9 games. During a the 4 game winning streak, Walker has hit 15 of 29 three pointers attempted.
The 30 point mark has been the key for him. Over the past 5 seasons, Charlotte has gone 20-5 when he puts in at least 30 points.

The Pelicans have been a horrible home team and that doesn’t bode well against a good home team in Charlotte.
The Hornets have gone 22-9 at home this season compared to just the 7-23 away record for New Orleans. Look for the home court advantage to play a big advantage here.
