The Hornets are right around where most expected them to be this season—maybe even a bit better. Charlotte has refused to go into a full rebuild for a long time now, but it continues treading water enough to justify it.
The Thunder, on the other hand, have been one of the NBA’s biggest disappointments to start the new year.
Oklahoma City Thunder
When Carmelo Anthony left for the Houston Rockets, OKC was considered a winner by subtraction. Melo, despite being a superstar in name, has proved that his best basketball is far behind him.
The hope was that his absence would create a greater opportunity for Russell Westbrook and Paul George to play off one another.
That hasn’t happened yet.
So far this season, the Thunder have seen their head coach’s seat get hotter and their shooting get colder. The Thunder are actually earning themselves wide open shots with good ball movement and off-ball movement; they’re just not connecting.
The Hornets have an elite point guard in Kemba Walker. He may not always get that recognition, but he’s an All-Star-caliber floor general who can shoot, score and cross-over with the best of them.
Offensively is where Charlotte has really thrived and surprised. Last season, the Hornets were 13th in offensive efficiency. Not an elite number by any means, but still in the upper half of the league.
This season, albeit with an admittedly small sample size, the Hornets are third in that category.
On the year, Charlotte is scoring 112.9 points per 100 possessions, placing them behind only the No. 2 New Orleans Pelicans and league leading No. 1 overall Golden State Warriors.
I know, I know: shocker that the Dubs are in first place on offense. But Charlotte really is a surprise, and a surprise the Hornets hope to keep up.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
The Thunder are currently sitting in the No. 11 spot in the NBA in defensive efficiency. That’s a big deal considering the Hornets are as good this year as they are on offense.
But there’s one little problem.
OKC’s offense is atrocious.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Charlotte Hornets ATS
Despite having two superstars in Westbrook and George, the Thunder have the league’s second-worst offensive rating so far this year.
That’s not going to get it done on Thursday, and the Hornets will walk away with a win straight up and against the spread as a result.
