Tony Parker is going to play his last game in SA and was even rested the game before to be ready for this one. I like the narrative but can't get behind Tony here. With no Zeller down low I believe Aldridge is going to have his way tonight and I also see this being a high scoring game with lot of energy. I'm going to take the Spurs -8.5 as well as over 221.5

This should be an easy game for Spurs but I'm not too sure about the 223. I think going Under the total is a good bet.

Spurs are a different team at home and I think we see the S.A. put up some a lot of points tonight. I would lean over 22350%

get this -8.5 line before it moves!! sharp money is all over spurs in this one. Why? the Spurs have played well against the spread, winning their last five games against Eastern Conference opponents and four of their last five home games against teams with losing road records. The Hornets have struggled against the spread, losing their last seven road games against teams with winning home records and seven of their last eight road games. They're also coming off a back to back and have been struggling.50%

Hornets are a team to fade. You will lose more money by backing them than fading them since weeks ago. It seems like they are not motivated to play anymore.60%

Charlotte Observer: Hornets guard Tony Parker's return to San Antonio ends with both sides happy
In easily the best road victory this season, the Charlotte Hornets held off the San Antonio Spurs 108-93 Monday, finishing a trip through the Western Conference at 2-4.
This was an emotional night for former Spurs superstar Tony Parker and former Spurs assistant James Borrego. Parker, playing against the Spurs for the first time in his 18-season NBA career, seemed to play nervously early, but finished with eight points, four assists and three rebounds. Borrego, coaching against his mentor, Gregg Popovich, assembled a strong game plan against the 25-20 Spurs.
Hornets point guard Kemba Walker finished with 33 points.

Welcome to the game thread. The Spurs trip to Oklahoma City didn't go as planned, but a split against the Thunder isn't bad. Tonight the Silver and Black take on the Hornets from Charlotte, whose best player is Kemba Walker. But the player who everyone will be watching and cheering for is his backup, Tony Parker, who might be familiar to some of you.
Pounding The Rock: Spurs pay tribute to Tony Parker prior to Hornets game
As expected, prior to their match-up with the Charlotte Hornets the Spurs had a beautiful video tribute for Tony Parker in his return to the AT&T Center after 17 seasons and 4 championships. He appeared to enjoy it, and the fans showed him plenty of love with a standing ovation and chants of "Tony!"
Thanks for everything, Tony!

Fansided: San Antonio Spurs vs. Charlotte Hornets: Game Preview and TV Info
San Antonio has been on fire since a December 7th win over the Los Angeles Lakers kicked off a five week stretch of excellent team-oriented basketball. Though the Spurs have lost two of their last three games, they'll have a great opportunity to come away with a victory when the Charlotte Hornets visit the AT&T Center.
While this matchup holds little relevance in the grand scheme of things, the return of Tony Parker and head coach James Borrego will surely make this one sentimental for San Antonio's faithful fanbase.
Official Site of the Charlotte Hornets: Hornets Finishing Tough Road Trip in San Antonio
A challenging six-game road trip for the Charlotte Hornets finally comes to an end tonight as they wrap things up against the always tough San Antonio Spurs starting at 8:30 p.m. ET.
After starting the journey 1-4, the Hornets now head to the AT&T Center, where they've lost 11 consecutive appearances (last win: Nov. 15, 2006). The Spurs have gone 14-5 since Dec. 5, ranking second in the NBA in offensive rating (116.4), third in defensive rating (104.3) and first in net rating by a wide margin (+12.0; Boston is second at 7.7) during this stretch.
The center position has continued to produce a mixed bag of results for the Hornets ever since they lost Cody Zeller to a broken right hand on Dec.
Fansided: Charlotte Hornets: 3 thoughts on Parker's return to Spurs
Charlotte Hornets fans have got to be relieved that this six-game Western Conference road trip is coming to an end on Monday night. So far, it's been a brutal stretch and they've only been able to pick up one win in the first five games.
That win was a narrow victory over the Phoenix Suns. In three of the five games played so far on this trip, the Hornets have lost by double-digits. They are also giving up an average of 119 points per game, which is way too high.
The defense is going to have to get better, as well as the players' intensity.
Fansided: Charlotte Hornets closing out road trip vs San Antonio Spurs
At this point, the Charlotte Hornets (19-23) have to be eager to get back to the comfortable confines of the Queen City.
Not only due to the fact that they've been away for nearly two weeks, but also because they've essentially been dominated by some of the better teams in the Western Conference. Going 1-4 so far with three of those losses coming by 10 points or more will make any team wish they could pack it up and head home.
Alas, there is still one game left on their road trip and that takes place Monday night against the San Antonio Spurs (25-19).
Pounding The Rock: Game Preview: Hornets at Spurs
Monday's contest against the Charlotte Hornets should spell a victory. The Spurs are rolling and have only dropped one of eight games against Charlotte since their rebrand back to the Hornets moniker in 2015. This season, the Hornets are 2-11 against Western Conference opponents and are 5-15 in games on the road this season. Their roster is sorely lacking high-end talent outside of Kemba Walker
The contest does hold intrigue, however, if only because of one man. His jersey may say "Hornets," but written on the hearts and the bootleg T-shirts of those watching in the stands, he's a Spur for life.

Charlotte Observer: Hornets notes: Zeller's absence, Walker's big games, Parker's Spurs homecoming
Back in September new Charlotte Hornets coach James Borrego said it was imperative the team do whatever it could to keep center Cody Zeller healthy.
Now, that sounds prescient. The Hornets are 18-17 in the games Zeller has played this season and 1-6 in the games he has missed. Zeller has been out the past six games after fracturing his right hand in a home victory over the Orlando Magic on Dec. 31. He could miss another month or more following hand surgery in New York.
That the Hornets wouldn't fare well in Zeller's absence isn't new: The Hornets were 27-42 without Zeller in the three seasons prior to this one.
