Dominant Hornets Snap Losing Streak with New Players Leading the Charge

The infusion of new players was instrumental in Charlotte's successful snap of its recent losing streak on Saturday. Vasilije Micic, a recent acquisition, delivered an impressive performance with 18 points and nine career-high assists. Miles Bridges and Brandon Miller also demonstrated their prowess by leading the team with 25 and 18 points respectively. The Hornets showcased their offensive prowess with an exceptional shooting percentage of 57.3% from the field, including an impressive 51.6% from beyond the arc. Additionally, they outrebounded their opponents, the Grizzlies, by a margin of 43-32 and scored a solid 54 points in the paint. This display of dominance fuels my confidence in Charlotte's ability to cover the spread on their home court this Monday night. On the other hand, while Indiana showcased a strong performance in their last game, their inconsistent defensive performance makes it imprudent to place confidence in them laying the points in this upcoming game. The Pacers allowed an alarming 54 points in the paint against New York, which mirrors the success the Hornets had in their recent match-up against Indiana, where they scored 52 points in the paint. With Miller and Bridges leading the charge for the new-look Hornets, I anticipate another strong showing from them. Expect a high-scoring game, with Charlotte fiercely competing and ultimately covering the spread.
