Terry Rozier (SG) vs. Victor Wembanyama (C)

Hornets point guard Terry Rozier has been one of the few bright spots for Charlotte this year. Through 23 starts, he’s averaging a team-high 36.2 minutes to go along with 24.3 points, 7.2 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. His usage rate sits at 30.2% as he has the ball in his hands a ton for the Hornets’ 26th-ranked offense. Rozier is scoring from all three levels, shooting 46% from the field, 36% from deep and 79% from the charity stripe. He’s also taking care of the ball well for a lead guard, posting just 2.3 turnovers per contest. However, Rozier offers little resistance on the defensive end. Offense is his calling card, so he’ll need to continue his efficient playmaking and shot-making for the Hornets to have a chance against San Antonio.

On the other side, Spurs rookie center Victor Wembanyama has taken the league by storm. He’s averaging 19.3 points on 46% shooting to go along with 10.1 rebounds and a whopping 3.3 blocks per game. He’s started every contest for San Antonio while seeing 29.2 minutes a night. Wembanyama is a rare big that can space the floor, hitting 34% of his threes so far. But he’s also comfortable doing damage in the post with his size, length and touch around the rim. While his 3.2 turnovers per game show his youth at times, Wembanyama has proven to be a defensive anchor for San Antonio. If he avoids foul trouble, the rookie could swing this game in the Spurs’ favor.

Hornets’ Offensive Dynamics: A Closer Look

Rozier has brought several shining moments of brilliance to the Hornets’ offense under Rozier, with their average points per game sitting at 109.5 per game and boasting a shooting efficiency rating of 46.4 field goal percentage and 34.9 3-point field goal percentage, as well as 25.2 assists per game demonstrating effective teamwork-driven offensive strategies.

Spurs’ Offensive Strategies: Analyzing the Approach

The Spurs average 111.3 points per game on offense and employ an edgier strategy than their Hornets counterparts; their 91.4 average field goal attempts per game and 12.8 3-pointers made are clear indicators of this. With their riskier play style, however, this may prove an effective means of breaking through Hornets defense and defeat them on any given night.
