Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Charlotte Hornets vs San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs will welcome the Hornets to AT&T Center as they are coming off a lost against the Thunder while the Hornets fell to the Kings in their last game. Game tips off at 8:30 PM ET.
Charlotte Hornets's Latest Performance :
The Hornets are coming off a loss against the Kings. The Hornets are currently on a three-game losing streak. It will be a long season for this Hornets team because they only have Kemba Walker doing everything for the team as he led all scorers in Saturday’s loss to the Kings with 31 points on 11-of-24 shooting while also accounting for four assists, one rebound, one steal, and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes. It going to be tough for him to operate against the Spurs because Coach Popovich knows exactly how to limit him from scoring. For the Hornets to end this skid they will need other players to score at least 20 or more points. The Spurs are well aware that the Hornets have only one scorer in Kemba so they will allow him to do his thing and over the course of the game he will become tired. Batum and Lamb will need to step it up offensively if they want to win games again.
San Antonio Spurs's Latest Performance :
The Spurs make their return home to AT&T after failing to win back to back games against the Thunder. The Spurs simply ran out of gas in the rematch after taking care of business two days ago in the double-OT win. LaMarcus Aldridge made 8-of-14 shots for 17 points with nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 33 minutes while DeRozan chipped in with 18 points. He played another 35 minutes in this one after playing 49 minutes on Thursday. He has yet to miss any games due to rest and is among the leaders in minutes played so far this season. Belinelli scored a season-high 24 points he enjoys playing against the Thunder as scored a season-high in both of the matchups. He is hoping that he can keep his scoring tally up against the Hornets. Playing against the Hornets the Spurs will need Patty Mills to do is best to contain Kemba Walker as he is the team’s primary scorer.

Against The Spread Selection: San Antonio Spurs
My reason for the pick :
The Spurs will be glad that they don’t have to face the Thunder again as they will take down the Hornets at home. The Hornets losing streak will balloon to four as they can’t seem to find any offense besides Kemba. It is hard in today’s game to do it all by yourself you must have at least two scorers to be successful. It will be an easy win for the Spurs at home as I expect a balanced scoring effort. The Spurs will cover the spread at home.
