Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Charlotte Hornets have this game and the Washington Wizards before ending the season. This team is now tied with the Indiana Pacers for the eight best record in the NBA Eastern Conference and a win will seal their position. They also have a chance of stealing the seventh best record if they win both games. Gordon Hayward is not expected to play the rest of the regular season and even the play-in tournament. For the meantime, Terry Rozier is expected to lead the team in scoring and he needs the additional scoring punches from Devonte Graham and LaMelo Ball.

Players to watch: T. Rozier SG 67 GP 67 GS 34.3 MIN 20.5 PTS 0.7 OR 3.6 DR 4.3 REB 4.2 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 1.9 TO 1.7 PF 2.2 AST/TO 17.35 PER

New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks are now sixth in the NBA Eastern Conference standings and after this game against the Boston Celtics before calling it a season and heading to the playoffs. This will be the first time they will get in the playoffs since Carmelo Anthony led them in 2013 only to lose against the Miami Heat. So far, so good for the Knicks and they are coming off from a tough win against the San Antonio Spurs. Winning both games will give them a best case scenario of pushing their position to fourth place. These are the times that defense will take over and expect the Knicks to use that to secure both wins against the Hornets and Celtics.

Players to Watch: J. Randle PF 69 GP 69 GS 37.4 MIN 24 PTS 1.2 OR 9 DR 10.2 REB 5.9 AST 0.9 STL 0.2 BLK 3.4 TO 3.2 PF 1.7 AST/TO 19.91 PER
