Defensive inconsistencies: Both teams are plagued by defensive issues and Hornets are usually more in the flux on the defensive end than the Spurs team. Charlotte Hornets have given away 120+ points more than any other team and on the other hand, the Spurs have squandered 110-115 points on a regular basis. Both teams have struggled to keep their head in on multiple offensive possessions and perhaps the offensive style has something to do with it too. It seems like these two defenses will largely display similar trends for the remainder of the season.

Two high-quality passing units: San Antonio Spurs are number two in assists with 28 a game and thus, it means high-quality percentage shots, and that is why the team is shooting around 47%. The best part about the Spurs is that they commit around 13 turnovers a game and that means they are dishing more than 2 assists against a turnover, and it is one of the best in the league. The Hornets are third in the league when it comes to assists per game with around 26 a game and like the Spurs, the team commits less than 13 turnovers per game. It is clear two brilliant passing teams are fighting it out here.

Why this can be a high-scorer: Now, with top-class passing comes top-class offense. Both this teams can accomplish the feat of scoring 110 and more regularly. In fact, the Charlotte team has scored 120 points or more even without LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier. The Hornets are shooting 38.3% from three and that is the second best percentage in the league. The preferable scoring range for the Spurs has been 111-115 points mostly and this can imply a high-scorer.

Here are some quick-hitter related to the game.

  • Spurs have compiled 112, 112, 123, 109, 104 in the last five games;
  • Spurs have conceded 97, 127, 111, 121, 108 in the last five matches;
  • Hornets have scored 96, 124, 106, 124(OT), 130 in the last five games;
  • Hornets have allowed 120, 123, 110, 127(OT), 127 in the last five games;
  • Spurs have won six games and lost eight games at home;
  • Hornets have won seven and lost 10 games away from home;
  • Jakob Poeltl has grabbed 9-14 rebounds a game regularly this season;
  • Gordon Hayward has dished 6 or more assists in three of the last four games;
  • DeJounte Murray has dished 8-14 assists continually this season;
  • Terry Rozier returned for Hornets in the last game and grabbed 20 points;
  • Derrick White has scored 23 or more in three of the last four games;
  • Ish Smith, LaMelo Ball, and Mason Plumlee are out for the Hornets;
  • Zach Collins will remain out for the San Antonio Spurs;
  • Do check the injury list before placing your bets.

Points Range: Points, points, points, they can flow when two high-scoring teams are playing. These are not the best two defenses but if I had to give an edge I’d give it to the Spurs. Still, many nights, Hornets barely care about the elite defenses. I believe both the teams can get past the 110 points range and they have done so in the majority of the games. If we take this into account and assume both teams field relatively healthier rosters then a 220-235 points range is not out of the question. Remember some Hornets have gone even past the 250 points range.

Prediction: These two teams have been inconsistent in terms of winning, especially the Spurs compared to the Hornets. Both teams can mount up 110 and more and this can make for an exciting watch for offensive lovers while a cringe-worthy one for the defense lovers. I take the Spurs to win here with a scoreline of 121:111.

  • Handicap: 1 -2.5 for 1.84;
  • Total Points: 228.5 for 1.90;
  • Player Props: Player Rebounds: DeJounte Murray Over 7.5 for 2.00.
