I keep waiting for the Jazz to flip a switch but it hasn’t happened yet, now it seems like they are changing up the personnel to try and get things back on track. Adding shooting is never a bad idea in this league.
Charlotte is looking to continue what has been a solid start. They are kind of a one man team but it works. They are competitive most nights and strong at home.
Utah was supposed to take a step back last season after losing Gordon Hayward to free agency. Instead they came together nicely and became one of the more dangerous teams in the NBA.
That is why their early season struggles are so surprising. They are still among the better defensive teams but the results, especially at home have not been there.
Last year Donovan Mitchell was superb. It seemed he got better with every single game on his way to averaging 20ppg. This season his efficiency has dropped and it is not the “Utah way” to have volume scorers.
In the middle Rudy Gobert still sets their defense and his scoring is up. However, he is still a liability late in games, even more so because his free throw shooting has dropped to just 58%.
The addition of Kyle Korver could help out both of these guys. Even though he has some miles his shooting is still elite. He has also played for the Jazz in the past and in his last season with them led in the NBA in 3PT %. It was actually his best shooting season ever.
It looks like this season will be up and down for the Hornets. Right now they are riding a two game winning streak including a nice home win against Milwaukee. They are 6th in scoring and 10th in defense so you could make an argument they should have a better record to show for it.
It has been encouraging that they were able to beat a high level team without it all being on Kemba Walker. He is sublime but often there is nobody else in support. If he is going to get help then this team can be good. When he scores 40 or more they are only 1-2.
One guy they need to be better is Malik Monk. He is mostly a spot up shooter so he should pair well with Kemba who draws a lot of attention but I worry he just doesn’t have that instinct to find the open spots on the floor and work to get to them…like Korver.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
No line yet but you can look closely at the home team here. I think they will be a small favourite when it is released. They are 8-3 ATS at home this season.
I would look for something in the -6 range. Charlotte has not been great in favourite roles though, just 6-6 ATS, 5-3 ATS at home.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hornets ATS
Look for the Hornets to feature Kemba like they always do but to also have enough support to get the in and cover.
